Cup of tea.

Lots of sewing threads in....
We got a wonky box :)
Back home to unload the shopping.

To look at the lovely sewing things I bought.
Caught up with the One Hit Wonders from the 1970's we recorded from this week.
Son wanted a lift, so off I went to pick him up.
Nearly had my car took out on the Asda roundabout.
Son had left work and was walking home, I found out this when I got to his workplace.
Great!
At least I had my good CD with some big songs to listen to on the way home.
I had to reheat up my coffee!
Now for lunch!
Now to open the box...
Lots of blue language to try and thread the machine....
I had a quick play on.
Tried out the letters and numbers.
I am sewing another layer of material onto the Living Room curtains tomorrow. 
Tea time.
We watched two episodes of Hell's Kitchen.
Then we went out to collect 2 Magic Bags.
One red van was in the wrong lane on the Sainsburys Island and nearly took out my hubby's car!
Nice moon tonight.
Back home to unpack the magic bags.
Now to catch up with last night's
Have I Got New For You.
I looked into today's newspaper.
William Scott "Jack" Elam  was an American film and television actor best known for his numerous roles as villains in Western films, and later in his career, comedies (sometimes spoofing his villainous image). His most distinguishing physical quality was his misaligned eye. Before his career in acting, he took several jobs in finance and served two years in the United States Navy during World War II.
Elam performed in 73 movies and in at least 41 television series. Some of his more memorable roles are in Once Upon a Time in the West, High Noon, Support Your Local Sheriff!, and on the series The Twilight Zone and Gunsmoke.
He would have been 101 years old 🎈
"GoldenEye", 17th James Bond film, starring Pierce Brosnan for the first time and Judi Dench as M, released in 1995.
Sleep Tea Time.
Now off to a very warm bed!
