Getting Them Bargains In!

It took me 15 years to discover that I had no talent for writing, but I couldn't give it up because by that time I was too famous
 - Robert Benchley
Welcome to my Boxing Day!
It is the Sixth anniversary of me being Tea-Total 🎈🎈🎈🎈🎈🎈
I had a little lie-in....
Followed by tea and cuddles in bed!
 I forgot to open a present from my dad↓
 We all get up, dressed and to pick up my Dunelm order↓
 Nice coffee with mince pie↓
 The view from my chair↓
 Then we looked around..
That would look nice in my bedroom if I had room↓
 Then off to town to get more bargains.
The view from Car Park 4↓
 I gave 5 plastic empty items into Bodyshop.
They don't do the £5 voucher no more :( :(
Got some items from there in their sale.
 I went into Debenhams and got another bargain↓
I saw a long queue to get into Pandora shop.
Then off to get some bits from Wilkinsons↓
While I was paying for my items in HMV,
I noticed a Manfred Mann boxset for £45↓
 Oh I was so tempted....
(I resisted)
Back home to unpack my bargains from HMV↓
Now onto my Dunelm order↓
 I enjoyed a Picnic↓
  Now off to work I go...
 I gets back to have a Lemsip...
As all the males of the households have coughs, and feeling shit!
Hubby tried to do tea without the Turkey that was left!
(Nice try!)
Back on the turkey we go...
A lovely turkey salad....
Yum Yum!
The 13 year old boiler is now playing up again..
It is only letting us have heat and no hot water!!!! 
We watch↓
  Then onto..
 Breaks open the new dvd of:
Leslie Dwyer, English actor (Hi-de-Hi!), died at 80 in 1986.↓
 Sir Nigel Hawthorne, English actor (Tartuffe, Pope John Paul II) died aged 72 in 2001
 Fontella Bass, American R&B and soul singer and songwriter (Rescue Me), dies from a heart attack at 72 years old in 2012.

I Know What My Body Clock Needs...

I never had a penny to my name. So I changed my name
 - Rodney Dangerfield
It's not great to wake up at my normal time on a weekday!!!
Alas it's not a's the weekend!
(Body clock playing up!)
I took out my earplugs.
Enjoyed listening to the "Sounds of the 60s" with a cup of tea in bed.
 Goes back to sleep ......
Later on it's breakfast time in bed↓
 Then it's up up up ↗↗↗↗
Washing machine goes on...
Then it's time to get some fresh air..
The hat is back↓
Drops off son to his boxing lessons.
We carry on to get some more Nectar points..
 This week's Private Eye magazine made me laugh↓
We had a nice coffee in the cafe↓
We then picks up son from his Boxing lesson.
I pop into see Joe in Omega Therapies.
He told Jack they had tried to phone him to say he had won the raffle price.
After he didn't pick up his phone, the next ticket holder was going to have it.
I could see Jack's bottom lip drop!
"You are the real winner Jack!"
 I got some great stuff in his Black Friday sales...
£2.50 :)
I said goodbye to Joe and his sister Tracy.
Dropped off my dad's newspaper on the way home.
I had a quick look at the magazine I bought earlier↓
 with my late lunch↓
 Washing machine and tumble driver were put back on.
I meanwhile had to write some blog posts.
While doing that we put some good films on to watch...
We will be watching number 3 tomorrow..
Nicolas Roeg died on this day in 2018 aged 90.
 He directed one of my favourite films.
Time for a nibble on pizza↓
 Then we caught up on more:
 Then it was off to bed as we were yawning too much!
