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.
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.
 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🎡

Bed early...
