In The Middle Of Nowhere!

 It works better if you plug it in - Sattinger's Law
Welcome to my Thursday in Bidford πŸš—
A lovely hug and brew.
Breakfast.
Dressed.
I gave hubby a sloppy wet πŸ’‹ before he went to work.
Now to round up the kids.....
Off to Bidford we go...
The sun was there to greet us...
Parked on the field.
One of my kids said what not to say.
"It looks like you are not going to buy nothing off here, mum!"
Unlucky...
I bought a Nutcracker soldier shaped like a Russian Doll.
Someone was selling a vase with fake flowers with lights.
We guessed the price...
One son was spot on with £20.
The woman said She would lower it down to £18 if I wanted it.
"It was £63 from The Range!" She bellowed at me.
I looked down at the plug and said "No" and walked off."
Next it was the CD man....
Loads of 1950s and 1960s CDs.
The kids had their 80's CDs and war songs.
Moving on,
I got the following DVDS.
Das Boot The original uncut version Digitally remastered = 4 hrs + 42 mins.
The King and I
Educating Rita
The Bridge on the River Kwai
Collector's Edition of The Untouchables
&
Kick-Ass 2 on Blu-Ray.
It took us 45 minutes to walk all around it.
We walked back around again, altogether it took us another 25 minutes.
I needed coffee...
Off the field we went.
Onwards to the nearest McDonalds.
Back home to unpack all the goodies!
Lunchtime.
More coffee needed!
I was supposed to have something delivered by DPD this morning...
As normal, he couldn't be bothered to find me and leave it the shed, took back to the depot again.
I have now asked to be delivered to a shop in the town centre tomorrow instead of it going back to the depot again!
Tea at 3.
