Remembrance Day

All a soldier needs to know is how to shoot and salute 
- General John Pershing
Welcome to my Remembrance Sunday 
Breakfast and Brew.
I gets on the sequins and my red hat.
It's not looking very good for the weather!
On goes the rain mac.
Now to leave the house.
Gets down there early to get a car parking space.
I helped with the cakes going into the Social Club.
Then hubby and I went over to the car park for the parade in the rain.
I was at the front of the parade with 5 other Councillors.
We walked to the war memorial which took about 25 minutes.
At 11am it poured down with rain.
Then  we carried on with the parade.
The High Street was closed off to traffic,
However as we were going up the road, car were coming down. 
We finished back in the car park where we started.
Then we off for a hot drink at the nearby Social Club.
Got talking to a lot of people.
Had some nice food.
The coat came off to reveal the sequins.
After the raffle we left to go home.
I must have a caught a chill as I had a lemsip and a sleep to shake it off.
Hubby done the tea.
Then to watch...
We watched 2 of the 3 episodes.
Sleep Tea Time.
Back on the Wobbly Work Wheel  ๐ŸŽก tomorrow

 Welcome to my Remembrance Sunday๐ŸŒน
Hug with brew.
Breakfast.
Dressed.
Now out to get some fresh air!
Checks Sexy Beast's tyre pressures.
Back before the 2 minute silence.
Watches the full service until 12.30pm.
Then it's time for a little bike ride...
Watches a bit of Ronin while cycling.
Felt better after that!
Time for lunch!
Then it's time to put another layer to the Living Room curtains.
One done.
Second one done.
Hubby hung them back up.
Then I got on with making tonight's tea.
Once it was put in the oven.
I went off to have a hot shower.
Then it was time to dish up the grub!
A bit of music is needed from the 1960s
While everyone was else having showers, I caught up with yesterday's blog post.
Once that was done.
We caught up with episode 3 of series one of "Fame."
Quick look into today's newspaper.
Freddie Garrity was an English singer and actor who was the frontman and comical element in the 1960s' beat band Freddie and the Dreamers.
He would have been 85 years old ๐ŸŽˆ
He sadly died aged 69 in 2006.
Sleep Tea Time...
Back on the Wobbly Work Wheel tomorrow ๐ŸŽก

Remembering......

The trouble with words is that you never know whose mouths they've been in - Dennis Potter
Welcome to my Sunday.
The sun was back \o/
 I had a nice cuddle and cup of tea in bed.
 Then we got up, and out to do some shopping.
 The sun might be out,
But its still cold↓
 We get to the Shopping Park↓
I pick up a Poinsettia for £1.99
Also I had £10 off my shopping from buying the Mail on Sunday.
At 11'o clock we stopped what we were doing and stood in silence for two minutes. Pity no one did. Everyone else carried on with their shopping and talking on their phones.
Then we went to Pets At Home and Homebase.
 No I did NOT buy another pet!!
Next stop was Webbs.
Car park was rammed.
 Webbs
Poinsettia's were £6.99 each.
 
 
 Some nice table Xmas Decorations on show.
Then we went to the till.
The first couple spent £100 at the till.
The couple in front of us spent £247 and didn't bat a eyelid.
I only spent a tenner!
Finally got home!
 Late lunch↓
 More housework done.
Finally got the curtain up over the large window at the top of stairs↓
 My new book has arrived to read↓
 Chicken tea↓
 My new plant looking good!
We now have moved onto series 12 of Law and Order.
Back onto that big Wobbly Work Wheel ๐ŸŽก tomorrow.
First Monday of using the ๐Ÿญ 
(Wish me Luck Please)
