Oh Yeah, I Got Four More!

I'm not a snob.Ask anybody.Well, anybody who matters -
Simon LeBon.
Welcome to my Saturday πŸ‘£
Nice warm hug.
Brew with breakfast.
We listened to "Sounds of the 60's" 
UK Top 3 from 1960. 
3: Michael Holiday - Starry Eyes↓
2: Anthony Newley - Why↓
1: Emile Ford & The Checkmates -
What Do You Want To Make Those Eyes At Me For?↓
Thermal vest goes on.
As well as some layers.
Now out of the house we go.
Parks car.
Now to look in the first Charity Shop.
There was nothing in there.
Picked up an Americano
(With blue milk)
Plus a cake to eat later on.
Moving on with the Road Trip.
Lots of bargains we got.
Nipped into Waitrose for some bits.
Then back out for a nibble!
On the way back, 
Hubby got his car cleaned...
All nice and clean now.
Back home to unpack all the lovely bargains.
More jigsaws for younger son to do.
We rewatched the Meatloaf programme again from last night.
Really good programme.
R.I.P Meat Loaf.
Now to put all the Minions together. 
I will have to make some trousers for the Hulk teddy.
Younger son already did one Jigsaw that we bought earlier.
I carried on writing two blog posts.
Hubby recovered from his migraine.
(Slept it off)
To do the tea.
Tea was finished.
Blogs were published.
Time to catch up with 2 episodes of Top of the Pops from 1992.
A good song was at number 11.
There would be a new number one for the next 8 weeks...↓
Marcella Detroit was sacked in 1993 from the band.
 While unsurprised at the final dissolution of the partnership, Detroit was distressed by the way it ended and how it was announced. Many years later, she would comment "I was never in it to steal anyone's glory away; I just did my job. I was asked by everybody to become part of it and then everybody wanted me out... I learned a lot about what it means to be an artist... To put two people as different as we were together – well, we were bound to have differences personality-wise. In the video for 'Stay', I was singing to this guy who was dying and she (Siobhan) was the Angel of Death. We used our personality differences to our advantage, but it was a little too real!"
Detroit and Fahey had not spoken to or seen each other for 25 years before eventually meeting and talking again in 2018.
They did some good songs together in 2019.
I looked into today's newspaper.
Bill Bixby  was an American actor, director, producer, and frequent game-show panelist. His career spanned more than three decades, including appearances on stage, in films, and on television series.

He would have been 88 years old 🎈
He sadly died aged 59 in 1993.
Exactly a week after it aired in America, the first episode of Hill Street Blues received its UK premiere on this day in 1981.
Joan Armatrading releases
"Drop the Pilot" on this day in 1983.
On this date in 1984 "Relax" by Frankie Goes to Hollywood reaches number one in the UK singles chart, despite the BBC ban; it will spend a total of 42 weeks in the top 40.
"Owner of a Lonely Heart" by Yes was the #1 song on the Billboard charts today in 1984. It was the first of two 2 straight weeks on top.
Airwolf, the action drama tv series debuted today in 1984. The series ran for a total of four seasons airing 80 episodes. 
Then we moved onto watch
"Dragon's Den"
Then we caught up with the news.
Sleep Tea time.
Now to enjoy a very warm bed with a nice and warm hubby!

Welcome to my busy SundayπŸ’“
Little bit of a lie-in.
Hug with brew.
Now to start to get the back garden cleared of stuff to go down the tip.
Filled car up, hubby and younger son went down to empty the car.
Meanwhile my other son and me were sorting through lots of black bags from the loft.
I found a Duck!
Edd the Duck.
When hubby came back...
Time for coffee!
Then to load hubby's car to go down the storage unit.
More sorting out to do.
Once car was loaded up.
We had a quick lunch.
Hubby went off to the Storage unit to unload his car.
Hubby comes back.
Now out in Sexy Beast. 
Check tyres,
Fill up, and get today's newspaper.
Back home to fill hubby's car up with more things to go to the tip!
Once filled up, off he went!
I found my Misty Annual from 1981!
I had this every Christmas until 1985!
Nice easy tea.
I was going to collect a Magic bag from Waitrose tonight, however they didn't have enough food.
So it was cancelled.
We picked up the first Magic Bag from Morrisons.
Then a Magic bag from M&S.
Now to catch up with a great film, we recorded earlier.
Sleep Tea time.
Quick look into today's newspaper.
David  McCallum  is a British-American actor and musician. He first gained recognition in the 1960s for playing secret agent Illya Kuryakin in the television series The Man from U.N.C.L.E.. In recent years, McCallum has gained renewed international recognition and popularity for his role as NCIS medical examiner Dr. Donald "Ducky" Mallard in the American television series NCIS. With John Leyton, he is one of the last living actors from the 1963 classic The Great Escape.
He is 88 years old 🎈
Michael  Elphick  was an English film and television actor. He played the eponymous private investigator in the ITV series Boon and Harry Slater in BBC's EastEnders. He was nominated for a BAFTA Award for Best Supporting Actor for his performance in the 1983 film Gorky Park.
In his prime, Elphick always looked older than he was, and with his gruff Sussex accent and lip-curling sneer he often played menacing hard men.
Elphick struggled with a highly publicised addiction to alcohol; at the height of his problem he admitted to consuming two litres of spirits a day, which contributed to his death from a heart attack in 2002. 
He would have been 75 years old 🎈
John  Challis was an English actor. He had an extensive television career but is best known for portraying Terrance Aubrey "Boycie" Boyce in the long-running BBC Television sitcom Only Fools and Horses (1981–2003) and its sequel/spin-off The Green Green Grass (2005–2009), as well as Monty Staines from the seventh series onwards in the ITV sitcom Benidorm, from 2015 to 2018. 
He sadly died today aged 79.
I actually met John Challis at a book signing in 2015.
Back on the wobbly work wheel tomorrow 🎑

Something For Nothing (Almost!)

Woo hoo the weekend arrived by gusts of wind we had last night!
Everything was nailed down, so it wasn't blown away.
All the males in the household had haircuts this morning.
Done the food shopping.
The Dr Who quiz was cancelled at the Library :(
Still enjoyed a takeaway M&S mocha and a read of a free newspaper.
We popped into Sainsbury's and picked up a early Christmas present...
What was even better, I had £15 of nectar points to spend...
So I got Chinese takeaway and a good film for nothing ;)
