Magic Mystery Tour....

If you have to ask the price, you can't afford it - J.P.Morgan
Welcome to my Sunday 🚫
We wakes up early,
As we are off to the Creative Craft Show at the NEC.
Before anything else...
It's Heardle time....
Heardle 60s was:
 Son's answers↓
Time for breakfast with brew.
Dressed.
Now for a little ride in Sexy Beast.
Going on the motorway was fun...
Younger son's Birthday request was read out on the radio for Wednesday.
They played a good Wings song for him↓
Parks in the car park.
Now off to look around the show
I had to go through a metal detector...
I did my normal twirl through it.
Made the Security men laugh.
Now onto the show...
I got chatting to a nice stall holder↓
I bought some things off her.
I asked her how much it was a stall for the 4 days?
"£600, and she hasn't broke even yet!"
I suggested to her to go on "Dragon's Den".
She would think about it.
This time the Creative Craft was really small.
Walked around in half an hour.
Time for coffee..
They didn't have no WHOLE milk.
So it was either SOYA or SEMI-SKIMMED milk.
I chose the Soya....
I could taste the soya milk and not the coffee!
We walked around once more.
Met my nice Scottish lady who only came down to sell off some bits of material.
It was nice to have a catch-up.
Bought some lovely material.
It was slowly starting to get busy.
We walked back to Sexy Beast. 
Someone in front was wearing a nice dress,
Going to look for that dress later when I get home...
This is where the fun starts...
Starts on the way home,
Hubby lost his bearings on the roundabout to the motorway, and ended up going the wrong way!
No roadsigns on the motorway.
We had to get off the next Services.
One large strong coffee and a nibble.
Back on the motorway.
Gets off at Junction 3, and back on the otherside of the motorway.
It didn't help the hubby left it late for me to change lanes to get back onto the right motorway home!
Finally got off the motorway!
Nipped into Morrisons to get some bits.
More fun I had!
I bought some reduced cake items...
None of the barcodes would work.
I had to type in 7 different barcodes.
Then the red light came on!!!
The assistant turned off the light.
Now to get back to Sexy Beast. 
Finally back home!
Unpacks the goodies from what I bought from the Craft Show.
Hubby makes a cup of brew.
Much needed cup of brew needed.
I get on with writing two blog posts.
Fry up some chicken, with garlic, mushroom, and tomatoes with added rice.
It was so nice, I didn't get to take a photo of it.
Still couldn't get this weekend's i newspaper.

Real Thing - You To Me Are Everything.
UK No.1 on this in 1982:

You Know You Want It!

If you have to ask the price, you can't afford it - J.P Morgan
 Welcome to my Sunday 🎊
No lie-in this morning...
Hug with brew.
Breakfast.
Dressed.
Collects the shopping trolley and tickets for the show, and off we go.
Parks in the car park near the hall we are going to visit.
Someone is already in the Christmas Mood...
Show both of my Covid Vaccine cards.
I was given a orange wristband.
Now off to the show...
We have another wristband for being VIP.
We go off to the VIP stand for a coffee and nibble.
They didn't have the blue milk which I have, as green milk doesn't do my stomach much good.
I had to choose between soya or green milk...
Wish I had bought my own milk now...
Now to look around the show.
£10 for half a metre.
I asked "If he was on-line?"
"Nope," He said.
I carried on looking, further up the aisle, was some lovely fabric. Bargain price.
I found a Janome sewing machine I was interested in.
There was already £100 off it on the internet.
They wouldn't knock anymore off because they were at the show.
I carried on round to the Brother Sewing Machine instead.
They had the sewing machine I was looking for.
Only £180 cheaper then the Janome.
 Plus a £150 Quilting Kit was thrown in as well.
The only problem was DPD was going to deliver it....
"I sure you won't have no problems with the delivery with DPD",The Salesman said.
"You will be the first one to find out if I do have problems with the delivery!" I laughed.
We looked around the  Simply Christmas event, and couldn't wait to leave.....
We went to look around the Cake International Event.
I did put a cake in back in 2013...
Shaun the Sheep and Friends in Halloween Costumes.
Now for more pictures of cake...
Back to get our final coffee with a bit of cake.
 Once eaten.
Playtime...
 We walked back to the car.
I was so glad of some fresh air!
Once we got back, I unpacked the trolley.
Now for some much needed lunch.
Out again to check the tyre pressures of Sexy Beast.
Once that was done, I covered up Sexy Beast.
The tumble drier went on, after the washing machine had been on twice.
Showers were taken by everyone.
Hubby put the tea in the oven.
Now two more episodes left of Narcos:Mexico series 3.
We finished the whole series by 10pm!
Sleep Tea time.
Back on that Wobbly Work Wheel🎑
