Somewhere Over The Rainbow!

I never did give anybody hell. I just told the truth and they thought it was hell - Harry S. Truman
Welcome to my Sunday love 💓
I woke up early and enjoyed a cup of brew in the garden↓
Hubby gets up, we have breakfast and brew in the garden.
Now time to check the tyre pressures on Sexy Beast.
Then off to see my mum and dad.
I see younger brother is using the bench he bought to tie some flowers on the legs.
He did remember Father's Day then?
I had a chat with my mum and dad.
I said goodbye.
Popped into the Green Fair.
Both sons were playing Goalie in the Football game hosted by the Redditch Lions.
Lots of lovely classic cars↓

It was getting quite warm.
Time for lunch.
Then back home to get ready to go to quiz later.
Younger son came along.
Off we go....
Gets a table....↓
We pick a team name of "Somewhere Over The Rainbow".
On our team was, Hubby, younger son, me and Hubby's snooker mate and his wife.
Half time↓
Hubby's Snooker team won a trophy for finishing runner up in Divison one table.
The song I used for the winning answer is at the bottom of this blog post.
The last round we romped home to win by one point!
We won £40!
Woo hoo!
Back home.
Sleep Tea time.
Back on the Wobbly Work Wheel tomorrow 🎡

Wow,They Look Good!

I can live for two months on a good compliment - Mark Twain
After going to bed at 2am this morning...
I had a much deserved lie-in!
Our kids were doing their good deed of the month by doing goal-keeping for the Redditch lions at the Green Fair around the Near-by lake today
Once they got up, 
Dressed,had breakfast, they were dropped off.
We had to do some errends ourselves.
We had to get another washing line,
As the last one was cut down to get the scaffording up.
Nice things in B&M.
Some people were sniffing the bottles of Zoflora.

So many lovely smells!
I got my dad's newspaper from Sainsburys.

Then off to do this week's food
I got two nice magazine holders for £3.99 each.
It's getting warm \o/
We gets home,
Puts the shopping away.
Now to head to the lake!

Some nice cars and motorcycles to look at.

Some birds of prey to look at.

I bumped into a ex-work mate who I worked with at "Fawlty Towers".
She was saying she wasn't getting no help with her daughter at the school.
I did say there were more than one school in Bromsgrove to go to if she wasn't happy!
There was a nice car to look at on the way out↓
The kids were given £10 each for helping out with the Redditch Lions.
We had a late tea due to trying to get things in the loft!
I meanwhile had to repot some plants and give them a good water!
Beans are growing!
  Lots of veg this year!
We caught up with this week's Top Gear..
Paddy and Freddie head to Borneo for a jungle adventure with the Gurkhas in a pair of very rare, very cheap old cars. Chris Harris tries out the world's most luxurious SUV, the Rolls-Royce Cullinan, while Bob Mortimer is the studio guest.
Really good episode! 
All ready to mount the Wobbly Work Wheel 🎡 tomorrow!
