More Of It To Clear......

When a divorced man marries a divorced woman, four get into bed - The Talmud
Welcome to my Sunday 💓
We had a bit of a lie-in...
Then it was nice hug to start Sunday with.
Brew with breakfast.
Dressed.
Then it was load up the car with stuff to go down the tip.
Full car, hubby went with one of our sons.
I meanwhile put the coffee machine on.
And sorted through more boxes from the loft.
When they came back,
It was coffee time!
Now back to sorting through boxes.
Found some Woolworth's vouchers...
Once the car was loaded up,
Off to the Storage Unit , hubby and son went to.
When they came back,
It was lunchtime.
Then it was time to pick up 2 magic bags from two different branches of Morrisons.
While waiting to pick one up from the Redditch Branch. One woman was arguing over her lottery scratch card with the cashier....
A good five minutes, she still left with £5 winnings, but she is coming back later to argue that it should be doubled.....
I finally got my lucky bag!
Then we drove to the Kidderminster branch of Morrisons.
We had to wait 5 minutes for it.
Once we had it, we sorted a bag out for hubby's dad to have.
As well as 2 big slices of Where's Wally's cake for him as well.
Then we drove home to load up the remaining things to go down the tip.
I tidied up the back garden while they went there.
The Pork Joint went into the oven.
Used up the vegetables I had in my Magic Bag today.
A cat left us a present.
In the past week, he got left 2 mice and now 2 rats.
Once all the washing was dried in the tumble drier.
Time to dish up the tea.
Used up the mint sauce, as we had no Crab Apple Jelly left.
Now to go and collect two more Magic Bags.
One from M&S which was half a bag.
&
From Waitrose,which was half a bag as well.
While reading the Waitrose newspaper.
Paul Jones was in there↓
He likes drinking lots of Green Tea!
I go and have a nice refreshing shower.
Then it's onto the Sleep Tea.

Deciding on what films to watch this afternoon.
I first chose:
Changed my mind after 5 minutes to watch:
Really good film.
I gave hubby a sloppy wet kiss when he came home.
Now to serve up the tea!
Gammon with stuffing with onion gravy.
One film we are going to watch tomorrow which looks quite good is:
I found this on the Redditch Labour Facebook page:
Redditch Labour Party are pleased to see some information on the contents of the Town Deal bid - the maximum amount which can be granted is £25 million, and we hope that Redditch is successful in achieving that maximum amount.
The bid consists of the following proposals.
🔘 £8.5m to improve the train station area with a 2 storey building, open space and improved car parking, taxi rank and bus service area.
🔘 £8m for digital support to businesses including a 5G test bed and office / workshop space.
🔘 £4.1m to demolish the library building to create a public square. (NOTE - no information on a new location for the library if this is approved.)
🔘 £3m to improve Unicorn Hill, Church Green and Evesham Walk - including “street furniture” and “waymarking.”
🔘 £1.1m to improve eco projects mostly electric charging points. (This is across residential areas and Abbey Stadium as well as in the town centre.) 
£4.1 million needed to demolish our library?????
Our Library houses the Job Centre, computers, and clubs.
It is our community hub!
Going to replace it with a public square?????
No news where it is going to go in the future!
It's been there for over 40 years!!!
I let rip on the Labour facebook and Conservative facebook telling it is a stupid mistake. No thoughts no planning.....
We carried on watching 
With my Sleep Tea.
Going to try out my new boxes of grey tomorrow↓
We are expecting Storm Christoph tomorrow!
Will I need to row a boat to get the newspaper on Hump Day đŸĢ
