Pressing That Button To Go Faster Than Lightspeed!

A dress has no meaning unless it makes a man want to take it off 
- Francoise Sagan
Welcome to my Saturday 💂
Off to visit my parents's grave with more flowers!
Warm hug with a brew.
Nice lie in.
Then dressed.
Coffee time 
Then out for a little ride..
When we got to my parents's grave.
My younger brother had dropped off the wooden bench (he bought it in the summer) and made a right mess of the flower display!
The lavender plants I put on the grave last summer has gone. He had put the blue vase behind the gravestone.
I sorted out the flower display!
That looks a lot better↑
I chattered to a man last year before the first lockdown, who was tending his wife's grave. He died in June last year during the first lockdown, and now finally the gravestone has gone to have his name put on it↓↓↓
Said goodbye to my parents.
I will have to get some things for Mother's Day next month!
Back home.
Quick read of today's newspaper.
James Whitmore Jr. was an American film, theatre, and television actor. During his career, he won three of the four EGOT honors: a Tony, a Grammy, and an Emmy. Whitmore also won a Golden Globe and was nominated for two Academy Awards. He died on this day in 2009 aged 87.
Hubby was going to watch the Michael Moore film I was watching yesterday.
I meanwhile had a nice cake to make.
Once the cake had been baked in the oven, it was left to cool.
Tea at 3.
Now to catch up with 2 weeks of 
Top of the Pops from 1990.
(A good tune with Paul Young and Zucchero will be released in 1991, it's at the end of this blog post!)
Next Episode.

I could have got done for speeding,
On how fast I was pressing the
 fast forward button  →→→→
The cake is ready!
So is the steak tea....
Movie time!
Great film.
I think I will leave the sequel alone.
Then it was on to watch the Newspaper review with some Sleep Tea.
Off to get under that warm 16 tog duvet!

Trying To Get Comfortable On The ......

You can't have everything.I mean where would you put it? 
- Steven Wright
I slept on the sofa last night...
(Due to hubby not being well, and I don't want to catch it!) 
He is slowly getting better...
I was awake by 6am....
Time for a cup of tea, crumpet and "Sounds of the 60s"
  Unloaded the dishwasher,
Loaded it back up.
Washing machine and Tumble drier were put on as well.
I went back to sleep for a bit.
A hour later, hubby was up with a cup of coffee for me....
I was going out on a road trip...
Kids up, dressed.
I blew a 💋 to my hubby.
Out on the road trip we go...
 Let's try out the new CD↓
First stop to visit the Charity shop in Studley.
 Nothing in there...
Back on the road trip we go...
 We finish up in Alcester↓
 Off to look around the Charity Shops..

 We got lots of lovely things.
My youngest son bought his first copy of Big Issue..
We popped into Waitrose for the free newspaper and coffee.
There was some nice reduced items...↓
 Nice, but I couldn't afford it..
I could just afford this instead↓
Enjoyed my coffee↓

 More good music to listen to on the way round to drop the newspaper around to my dad's..
We pick up his shopping list..
Back home to unpack my bargains
 Quick lunch↓
 Back out to do my dad's shopping
I pick up some bargains on the wool.
To finish off the turkey, I am doing a Gordon Ramsey receipe....
Once we did Aldi,
The great music carried on playing..
Now on to Morrisons..↓
 Drops off my dad's shopping.
I go back home to unload the wool I bought from Aldi's↓
Now to use up the last of our Turkey from Christmas Day.
Nice recipe from Gordon Ramsey...
