Pushing Me To The Limit!

 When all else fails, and the instructions are missing... kick it -
Welcome to my Saturday 👅
Nice warm hug to start Saturday with.
Breakfast with Brew.
Now to listen to "The Sounds of the 60's"
The Top 3 is from 1969. 
Diana Ross,The Supremes,& The Temptations-
I Gonna Make You Love Me.
Peter Sarstedt - Where Do You Go To (My lovely?)
Amen Corner - (If Paradise) is Half As Nice 
Thermal vest went on.
Now off out.
Dropped off son at work.
Now to do the shopping.
Just parked the car, when a woman came out of Lidl and just was gawping at me, especially when I got out of the car.
Under my facemask, I said:
"Do you want a picture?"
We done the week's shopping.
My younger son did my neighbour's shopping.
Then the rain came down.
Further visits to Food Warehouse, Home Bargains and Morrisons, I stopped in the car.
Then back home, in the rain.
7 parcels were put under the garden table.
I put the coffee maker on,
As well as the soup maker.
Helped put the shopping away.
Now for Coffee
My Godfather books arrived.
Now for some soup!
Gets all my things ready for the Tarot and Crystal Course.
Gets dropped off.
Learns more about crystals and moving onto doing our own Tarot Reading.
That hour went quick.
Bought something to help to learn what colour crystals I need to use during Charka crystal healing.
Gets picked up.
Back home to drop off my Course Paperwork.
Now back out.
I couldn't get what I wanted anywhere else except for Dunelm.
Got it.
Then went somewhere to look at a new gas cooker.
Oh dear, the Salesman had to deal with an awkward customer, so we had to wait.
I was going to wait another 5 mins before leaving.
Some nice new Kennys
The Salesman finally got that sale wrapped up,just in time.
First he tried to flog the warranty for the cooker to me:
3 years - £186
5 years - £214
No thanks
Then for it to be delivered (£20).
Uninstall the old cooker was extra as well.
 £90 to install the new one and take the old one away.
To unwrap the new cooker, was extra.
I told him no thanks for that.
The Plumber we had 3 times before, only charged £60 to uninstall and install the currant gas cooker.
(He didn't like that)
I was waiting for him to knock some off...
(£20 was added on for delivery)
He in the end, knocked off £50.
I only hope they find my house when they delivery next week, as he scrolled down the addresses for my postcode, and my house wasn't on, but my neighbour was. 
The receipt for my oven was given the previous customer, who had already left the store with it, before I got to pay for it! 
They printed another one off for me before I left.
I had to nip back into Dunelm for something.
Oh dear, one person on the till. The queue was backing up, the till operator was asking for more staff to go on the till, no one came.
One woman in the queue behind us, put her stuff down, left the store. Two people who were in the queue after standing there for 10 minutes, decided to put their facemasks on!
I paid for my purchase finally, and out of there I went!
Back home.
Hubby started on the tea.
Quick look in today's newspaper.
