Another Road Trip to .....!

 “If you have to ask the price, you can't afford it - J.P Morgan
Welcome to my Saturday Bargain Hunt 💰
I woke up at 5.30am...
Time for a brew downstairs.
I caught up with my blog.
Listened to "The Sounds of the 60s"
UK Top 3 from 1967
The Last Waltz - Engelbert Humperdinck
The Move - Flowers in the Rain
Bee Gees - Massachusetts
Once Sleeping Beauty rose from the bed.
I went upstairs to have 
Brew with Breakfast!
I went to bed to catch up on some sleep.
Hubby dropped off son at work, and went to see a man about a tyre for his car.
After the catch up of sleep.
Out for a ride in Sexy Beast.
First up to check Sexy Beast's tyre pressures.
The man using the air machine in front of us, was getting very angry. He punched the machine twice, went off to the see the staff in the Petrol Station.He came back, the machine wouldn't work, he punched it again and went back into the Petrol Station.....
It reminded me of the film Anger Management....↓↓
We left behind he returned to the air machine.
On the way to Shirley, I had a car driver who didn't like doing 40 m.p.h.
The car was trying to kiss the arse of Sexy Beast! 
We parked outside Aldi.
Now to get some bargains....
(I already have a red sofa thanks!)
I need another farting Minion in my life!
We nip into Iceland for a nibble before we go home.
We sat in the park to enjoy an apple!
We missed a road we were supposed to go down and ended up getting lost!
Once we got a signal, we got back on the right road home.
We made it home!
Unpacks all the bargains we got↓
I ordered some more Hairy Bikers Books.
As the recipes are easy to make and tastes yum!
Light lunch time!
Back out to finish off the food shopping.
(We did half in Aldi's in Shirley)
Nice Autumn colours of the trees..
Hubby drops me off at Lidl's, while he get's his tyre sorted out.
Gets most of the shopping on the list except 4 items.
Hubby had got his tyre sorted and while we were waiting to load up our food on the belt.
There were 3 women in front of us, one hugging the box of hair straighteners and not putting it on the belt.I couldn't wait any longer, went in  front, put there divider down, followed by ours.
"We have a lot of food to load up on the belt!"I said after they looked at me.
We soon put the food on the belt in time.
Food was back in the trolley and paid for.
Hubby loaded up his car with it, next stop was Food Warehouse.
Got some bits in there.
A man with a classic car has parked a bit close to hubby's car. We went into Home Bargains.
Came out, still the passenger door was blocked.
I sat in the back, and off to Waitrose to get the final item we couldn't get from anywhere else!
Still looking good :)
Great Private Eye front cover.
Now back home.
Puts the shopping away.
Now to get on with tonight's tea!
Used up the half of bottle of red wine!
While that was cooking in the oven.
I looked into today's newspaper.
