Oh Dear, How Sad!

 Cheer up! The worst is yet to come! - Chase Johnson
Welcome to my Saturday πŸš—
I listened to Sounds of 60s.
Then it was Breakfast and Brew.
I got dressed.
(I left the thermal vest off)
Got both kids up.
Loaded up shopping trolley into Sexy Beast. 
I gets the newspaper.
Drops off son at work.
Then off to enjoy some car booty at Stratford Car Boot.
The whole field was full.
My son and I went around twice and got some bargains!
Then I drove back home.
Bargains I bought today↑↑↑
Now for some nibbles...
I went to pick son up from work.
Nipped to the Garden Centre for more compost.
Came back.
Now for another nibble.
While I was in the front garden, potting some plants. Someone handed in next door's neighbour's son's keys as he left them in his Land Rover.
As hubby has got Covid, I went round to hand them in.
Went past their old television...↓
I gave my neighbour the keys. Made him a coffee.
I told him about hubby's dad passing away.
His response was: "Oh well, nevermind."
I left soon afterwards.
Now to carry on potting some plants.
Finished for now.
Still got more to do tomorrow.
Tea time.
Yum!
Quick look in today's newspaper.

Time For The Earth To Move!

When a man opens a car door for his wife, it's either a new car or a new wife - Prince Philip 
Welcome to my Thursday Fun 🍍
We had our brew and breakfast early, as we were expecting a shopping order from Waitrose, early.
Got dressed.
I went outside to get some fresh air while waiting.
Hubby had to go to work.
He had a wave from me.
When the shopping arrived,
One of my sons took the shopping from the driver.
The driver commented, "I didn't know there were houses down here!"
I replied from my kitchen,"If I had a £1 for everyone saying that, I wouldn't be living here."
I thanked him for delivering my shopping.
I unpacked it and put it away.
Coffee time.
With a little nibble...
Afterwards I unloaded the dishwasher.
The sun was shining,
Now to enjoy it!
Now to have move the Toucans about in the garden...
Now to get yesterday's blog post wrote.
Once that was done.
Time to finish off the soup!
Then I finished answering all the answers to the 8 stages of my Crystal course I have been doing.
I will hand them in on Saturday.
Only 2 more weeks left!
Tea at 3.
I practiced doing a tarot reading on myself.
I just can't get on with these Tarot cards.
I looked up at the meaning for these cards using the booklet that came with the pack.
Didn't make much sense.
Used another Tarot book on meanings of the cards and I understand  it better.
Time to put the tea on....
Hubby came back and went to take a Covid Test.
I dished up the tea.
2 Types of Pasta with mushrooms,garlic, red onions and Spinach.
Hubby's test was negative.
I will do one later on.

Once the kids came home, they were going to deliver some leaflets for our great friend Joe.
Dropped them off.
