Welcome to my Saturday 🎢

Hubby meanwhile had to sort his clothes out...
We had a break at dinnertime...
Back to blogging and sorting out clothes for us.
Hubby dropped off 2 bags of clothes at the recycling bank at Sainsburys on the way to pick up son from his job.
It's my late dad's 80th Birthday next Thursday.
I put a Birthday mention in the local newpaper for next week.
This is the picture I chose to add to it.

We shall see if those gold digging brothers will bother! 
Hubby starts on the evening meal...
It was well tasty!

Welcome to my Saturday 👅
We listened to "Sounds of the 60s" in bed.
Great selections of good tunes to start Saturday with.
Brew with hug.
Hubby and son left the house to do this week's food shopping and next door neighbour's shopping as well.
I went outside for fresh air.
Followed by the important coffee...
Hubby came back after a while with all the shopping.
I had wrote half of yesterday's blog post.
However, I had to leave it as we had to fetch my yellow paint from Alcester!
Nice ride out!
No trip into Waitrose,
As I have to save as much money as possible as my the MOT on Sexy Beast is next week!
Collects my pot of paint \o/
We have a walk down the high street.
We grab a takeaway coffee with nibble.
Someone in a big car dropped off some bags of clothes and put them in the charity bins by us.
Only forgot to close the boot lid, they got out by the entrance of the car park to close it, and something was blocking it closing.
After several attempts she finally shut the boot lid!
Back home.
Finally get the skirting done this week \o/
Then we went for a walk around the block for 25 minutes.
Hubby put the gamon in the oven when we got back.
I had a quick look into today's newspaper.
