Getting In The Christmas Mood!

I'm not a snob.Ask anyone.Well, anybody who matters - Simon LeBon.
Welcome to my Sunday.
I thought we had a too longer lie-in,
Until I realised I didn't put my watch back a hour.....
At least the sun was out!
 We made full use of the new toaster
New jar of Nutella↓
  We had snuggles...
Now for a little ride.. 
 Webbs Experience↓
 We then left after getting some bits from Hobbycraft.
Next stop↓
 It was nice to enjoy a reduced mince pie↓
 Then off to Aldi  to finish off this week's food shop.
Gets back to unload the shopping.
My nice stuff from Hobbycraft↑↑↑
The kids swept the path of leaves.
We sorted out the car park ticket for next week's visit to the NEC.
I bought my younger son's Xmas present.
(Which can be used every year!)

Always Bring A Trolley,Never A Bag..

A Penny saved is a penny earned - English Proverb
No chance of a lie in..
We listened to "Sounds of the 60s" in bed with a cup of tea...
So many things to do and places to visit...
Out of the house...↓
 Popped into see Grumpy Granddad.
Then off to see Jeffery↓
 The view from the car park↓
 Anyone want a tyre???
 Off to see the Droitwich Lions.
They couldn't believe the stuff I got.
I said, "I have cleared you out,that's why I always bring a trolley never a bag!" 
All for £13↑
We moved the car to where I parked yesterday.
 We did some charity shop looking and buying bargains.
We rested out feet in the Library.
 Nice car I bought..
(To go with the other two I have)
 On our way to our final charity shop
 We nipped into Waitrose, and got a yellow sticker lunch...↓
 Now to do my dad's shopping↓
 Back home.
 My car collection↓
 All the bargains we got from the Charity Shops↓
 I went down to do my other cleaning job.
After tidying up in the kitchen, I found some cake expiry date 28/2/2019↓
