"Pieces Of 8"

It is better to have a permanent income than to be fascinating 
- Oscar Wilde
Welcome to my Sunday๐ŸŽˆ
I had a much needed lie-in.
I enjoyed a cuddle and cup of tea in bed.
 We had more snuggles after breakfast.
Then we got up, got dressed.
Time to leave the house↓
 I really do hope they have got what I want in Lidl...
It is in the store today↓
 They got one in!
Next stop was a visit to Dunelm↓
 I enjoyed a mocha and tea cake↓
 The view from my seat↑
A really great card I found↓
 I got a pink pom pom blanket £5
Small box for 75p
3 pillow cases £3 each
Pom Pom strings 75p each
Pisces mug £1.25
The Parrot I got from Lidl was at home with everyone else↓
 My new 70's CD arrived.
I used my new cup I bought from Dunelm↓
  Hubby took our kids to see my dad in Hospital.
I meanwhile had school clothes to wash and dry.
Tidy up around my computer....

When hubby came back, he said the progical brother popped into see our dad last night as well as the younger brother.
However suddenly getting hold of my younger brother is getting more difficult as he is not replying to his text messages on when he is going to visit our dad next...... 
It was unlike last Thursday afternoon...
When he was speed-texting my hubby and me all the time!
Tea is served...↓
 The tumble drier working overtime!
All ready to mount that Wobbly Work Wheel๐ŸŽก
