More Magic To Give Out!

Everything takes longer than it should it should except sex - Murphy's Law
Welcome to my Magic SaturdayšŸ’„
Breakfast and Brew.
We listened to the "Sounds of the 60s"
UK top 3 from 1963.
3: Eydie Gorme & Steve Lawrence - I want to stay with You.
 2: Cliff Richard - It's All In The Game
1: The Beatles - She Loves You. 
Dressed.
Quick coffee
Quick road trip to Bromsgrove.
Looked in some Charity Shops.
There were some Lloyd Loom bargains↓
We missed out on the final Charity shop as we had our hour.
We got loads of bargains...
Now to do some Lidl shopping.
Anyone want a cucumber↓
Christmas coming soon↓
Back home.
My cake order had arrived......\o/
(That was 3 days late)
Bargains from Bromsgrove.
Salad for lunch↓
Back out....
We park in Car Park 4.
Hubby picked up his snooker glasses.
Then it was time to pick up some magic bags.
I bumped into one of the Stepford mums from my sons's First school.
Both her kids are at Uni.
"Isn't it expensive going to Uni?" She said.
"I wouldn't know,"I replied.
*This is some of things she said to me when I was going through the breakup of my first marriage back in 2011.*
*"You moved your boyfriend in a bit quickly, after your husband left!"
My reply was: "Hotel rooms are very expensive!"
She blocked my car in the school car park, so I couldn't get out. When she FINALLY came back to the car, I told her either move it, or I will take it out...
*The fun I had with those Stepford Wives!*
2 from Cafe Nero.
2 from Starbucks.
Lets go on the lookout for some Sequins...
Too small.
Alas too small again.
Nutcracker Time!
Back home.
Back out of the house.
We dropped of two baps each to two of my friends.
Next was to check my tyre pressures.
Back home.
Younger son comes back from doing an 10 hour shift at Morrisons.
Tea was put in oven.
Looked in today's newspaper.
Tea is ready.
We finally finished the first episode of:
Next up is a big big film to watch:
Sleep Tea Time.
Watched all of the film!
What a great film!
Bed time!

Leaving The Cake Out In The Rain

"I was so naive as a kid I used to sneak behind the barn and do nothing," - Johnny Carson
Welcome to my SaturdayšŸ„®
I have the cake being judged later...
Sleepless night doing lots of tossing and turning...
 Hug and brew first.
Breakfast.
Dressed.
Out in Sexy Beast↓
 The view from Car Park 7↑
 The view of the church.
We get the balloons,
Go off to enjoy coffee while they are blown up↓

 Back to Sexy Beast↓
I got another Lloyd Loom basket to put all my fabric in↓
Quick peek in the newspaper↓
   With coffee↓
 The cake is ready to be dropped off↓
 Has a late lunch↓
 Catch up on some programmes we taped↓
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 Nervous about the judging of my cake↓
Off to the  Redditch LGBTQ Support Services BBQ and to see how my cake has gone on in the LGBTQ Bake Off↓
While the judges added up their marks.
Suddenly started to rain...
I'm not leaving cake out in the rain.
We hurry the cakes indoors ready to hear how everyone got on.
The moon cake came first.
Whoo hoo I came second \o/
All the cakes were then cut up and sold to help with the Pride Event in Redditch next year.
(Over £100 was raised \o/)
I swapped my second place prize of a bottle of white wine for some lovely Avon products.
(As I have been tea-total for 7 years)
We all had a great chat.
I was so proud of finishing second...
 Then off to do our food shopping↓
 Pity I don't drink↑
 I got one already↑
Gets back,
Gives my neighbour his shopping.
Unpacks ours.
Nice beefburgers in a bun for tea.
I put my Certificate next to our wedding photo in the hall↓
I was asked to make some black facemasks for a dear friend.
The only black material I had featured red dots on...
Off to Dunelm tomorrow, as younger son wants some black facemasks for school.
More of NYPD Blue↓
With some sleep tea↓
 Off for some walking tomorrow to walk off the cake I ate!
