Playing With The Nutcrackers!

I like to do all the talking myself. It saves time and prevents arguments - Oscar Wilde
Welcome to my Saturday fun 👅
I woke up normal time I get up on a week days.
I downloaded all the pictures of these week, while I listened to "Sounds of the 60s"
 Hubby woke up later on.

Now for some nice breakfast and coffee.
We nipped into the Co-op to get the newspaper.
We went back up the High Street to go to a Craft Fair that was being held at the local Care Home.
I asked the staff if they would be interested to having my Rainbow cake I made.
"Yes," came the answer.
Dropping off the cake on Monday.
Got some nice bits from the craft fair.
We tried to go the Psychic Fair but there was no where to park. Back home we go.
Coffee time.
Now off to town.
We park in Car Park 4.
We have a look in the Charity Shops.
I got some nice rainbow shoe laces for 50p each.
Got chatting to my friend who worked for Royal Mail at the same time as me.
In need of a drink!
Now to look in TK Maxx.
The car parking machine was playing up, so we walked over to the other one.
We did our shopping at Lidl.
We popped into Morrisons to pick up a magic bag.
We went to the counter to get the magic bag.

Back home.

Now to visit town.
We park in Car Park 4.
Looking down↓
I waited when hubby went to get his eyes checked. I chatted with a friend I used to work at Royal Mail, and someone else who works in a Charity Shop. Told them what our beloved council had plans for the Library and how much it is going to cost.
There was a exhibition on 50 years of the Kingfisher Shopping Centre.
There used to Palm Trees.
Now for a much needed coffee.
Tea Cake.
We looked in The Range and two charity shops.
There was nothing we wanted.
Now to go over and see my mum and dad.
I had a good chat for 20 minutes.
Then we had a ride out to the Church and Graveyard where we are going on Tuesday for my dear friend's funeral.
Now to look around the graveyard.
Found where my friend is being buried on Tuesday ↓
She is being buried next to her late lovely Grandson George who passed a way too soon :'(
I walked around a bit more, and found some of my late customers, who I delivered their mail too. I rolled off where they used to live.
As I delivered the mail in Studley for 19 years.
I bumped into my late friend's daughter, and passed my condolences onto her dad. 
I got chatting to two ladies who was tidying up some graves. One of them I see around the village, she said to come early on Tuesday for the funeral as it is going to be packed.
I wished them a good weekend.
Off to the car we went.
So much bad driving on the way back.
We nipped into Asda to get our tea for tonight and we will do the rest of the food shop tomorrow morning.
Liquid Lunch.
Then I wrote 2 blog posts.
Tea was put in the oven.
I looked into today's newspaper.
Tea is ready.
Telly time.
Then we watched:

Sleep Tea Time.
Might have a little lie-in tomorrow....
Night all x
