Getting Them Bargains In!

It took me 15 years to discover that I had no talent for writing, but I couldn't give it up because by that time I was too famous
 - Robert Benchley
Welcome to my Boxing Day!
It is the Sixth anniversary of me being Tea-Total 🎈🎈🎈🎈🎈🎈
I had a little lie-in....
Followed by tea and cuddles in bed!
 I forgot to open a present from my dad↓
 We all get up, dressed and to pick up my Dunelm order↓
 Nice coffee with mince pie↓
 The view from my chair↓
 Then we looked around..
That would look nice in my bedroom if I had room↓
 Then off to town to get more bargains.
The view from Car Park 4↓
 I gave 5 plastic empty items into Bodyshop.
They don't do the £5 voucher no more :( :(
Got some items from there in their sale.
 I went into Debenhams and got another bargain↓
I saw a long queue to get into Pandora shop.
Then off to get some bits from Wilkinsons↓
While I was paying for my items in HMV,
I noticed a Manfred Mann boxset for £45↓
 Oh I was so tempted....
(I resisted)
Back home to unpack my bargains from HMV↓
Now onto my Dunelm order↓
 I enjoyed a Picnic↓
  Now off to work I go...
 I gets back to have a Lemsip...
As all the males of the households have coughs, and feeling shit!
Hubby tried to do tea without the Turkey that was left!
(Nice try!)
Back on the turkey we go...
A lovely turkey salad....
Yum Yum!
The 13 year old boiler is now playing up again..
It is only letting us have heat and no hot water!!!! 
We watch↓
  Then onto..
