Pass Me A Crystal!

The way I look at it, I'm a human being first and gorgeous second - Harvey Fierstein
Welcome to my Monday 😁
Nice warm hug for me.
(Kept waking up due to pain in right knee!)
Brew with breakfast.
No wobbly work wheel for two wheels \o/
I gave hubby a sloppy wet one before he left for work.
I have jobs to do around the house.
The coffee machine went on.
Sorted through two baskets of clothes, one son had bought down. Some clothes I had washed last week, and he hadn't even worn.
One basket went back upstairs to his room.
Washing machine went on.
Poured the coffee and took it upstairs.
Sorted out all the clothes I washed over the weekend.
My youngest son was coming out with me for a ride to the Salvation Army Charity Shop.
Just abouts got a parking space opposite.
Gets the newspaper from the Co-op.
Waits for the Charity Shop to open.
Once open, I gets some bargains.
Back to Sexy Beast with them.
Back home.
Unpacks the bargains.
I bought a Candlewick bedspread for £3.
Looks like this but in purple.
Nice beach mat for £1.
I put the soup maker on.
Both sons were off to do and take part in a Massage Course.
I will see them later afterwards, as I am finishing my Crystal course.
Light lunch time...
Now to drop the pot of lavender to my parents.
Nothing has been removed since Mother's Day.
Now off to finish my Crystal Course.
I answered the questions and put the crystals where they are supposed to go.
Passed!
I have a good book to read tonight.
Thanks Joe for a great course.
Brings kids home. 
Cleansed my crystals.
Tea at 3.
I dropped off my son's to help Joe delivering his leaflets.
Who did I see wearing just a black vest driving his van on the otherside of the carriageway????
My younger gold digging brother.
He best not to get too near to me...
I bite!
Sorted through my Tarot cards up to making tea.
Meat free time.
Yum.
