More Humpty Than Tumble!

 If it flies, floats or fucks, it's always cheaper to rent than to buy - Anon
 Welcome to my Saturday, not long to go until we go on holiday..🗼
As normal I woke up early.....
I enjoyed a brew before I started to write yesterday's blog post.
I listened to Sounds of the 60s while blogging, 
Once Sleeping Beauty rose from the warm pit.
I finished and published yesterday's blog post.
Now for warm hug, brew and breakfast.
Gets dressed.
Now to drop off son at work...
&
the other son to help out at the uniform bank. 
Now to town we go...
Parks in Car Park 4.
Cheeky Costa...
I then to go off to have my eyes tested....
I don't need new glasses \0/
That saved £150+
I buy a new dress to wear on holiday.
Found something to help with my worries...
Now to pick up son from work.
We were enjoying coffee and cake...
When suddenly a flock of loud mouthed crows entered the room....
One said to me as she walked into the room and called me: "Mr Tumble!".
Considering I was just sat there wearing a black flowing maxi dress with my red multi-coloured hat....
I don't look nothing like Mr Tumble
(as far I know!)
More like Humpty Dumpty!
They were being nasty to my son who served their drinks....
So reminds me of those horrible Stepford Wives I had to deal with at my kids's First School...
I just had to leave the room as my eye rolls was getting louder by the minute.
I said goodbye to Joe and Tracy and off home we went....
Gets home to find the shop had given me the wrong size dress!!!
It wasn't the same size that was on the clothes hanger..
Great, will have to change it when I get back!
Hubby went to pick up the other son from the uniform bank.
They nipped into Lidl to get tea for tonight.
I meanwhile had to pack my bags for the upcoming holiday...
Tea is served.
