Bank Holiday Monday
Welcome to my Bank Holiday Monday 💂  
Nice warm hug ;)
Brew with breakfast.
Thermal vest goes on.
Now to take out Sexy Beast for a little ride. 
We pick up the newspapers on the way.
First we nipped into the garden centre for some bargains.
Lots of Nutcrackers soldiers in the sale.
Hubby got two small ones off a display.
One customer gave my hubby a look for doing it.
Next stop was the Co-op to get some bits.
The Easter eggs are coming out now↓
Now back home to unpack everything.
Coffee time.
Ex-plum came to visit his kids.
His wife did some really nice crochet items for me.
Found a place for the little santa hats.
Once Ex-plum dropped of our kids, he left with 2 pieces of Christmas cake and a Christmas card.
Time to hit Sainsburys!
Got some more bits, including things for next year's Christmas Cake.
Back home to unpack.
Wrote yesterday's blog post.
Then got on with the Meat-Free Stir Fry.
Tea is served.
Soon after I had hot shower.
Now to visit some Louis I haven't watched before.

María de Montserrat Viviana Concepción Caballé i Folch  was a Spanish operatic soprano. She sang a wide variety of roles, but is best known as an exponent of the works of Verdi and of the bel canto repertoire, notably the works of Rossini, Bellini, and Donizetti. She was noticed internationally when she stepped in for a performance of Donizetti's Lucrezia Borgia at Carnegie Hall in 1965, and then appeared at leading opera houses. Her voice was described as pure but powerful, with superb control of vocal shadings and exquisite pianissimo.
Caballé became popular to non-classical music audiences in 1987, when she recorded, at the request of the IOC, "Barcelona", a duet with Freddie Mercury, which became an official theme song for the 1992 Olympic Games. She received several international awards and also Grammy Awards for a number of her recordings. 
She would have been 88 years old 🎈
She sadly died aged 85 in 2018.
