Stopping That Noise!!!

It may be that your sole purpose in life is to serve as a warning to others - Anon
Welcome to my Thursday πŸ’„
After spending a lot of night trying to get comfortable on a 2 seater sofa, it was time for a much needed cup of tea!
 Sleeping Beauty rose and made breakfast.
We got both sons up.
(One son is going into work)
While I was getting dressed, hubby fetched the newspaper and filled his car up with fuel.
Then he dropped son off and came back to pick us up.
The postman arrived and gave me my mail.
I had a reply from one of the prisoners on Death Row, I wrote to at the beginning of the month.
Now onto another Road Trip...
We looked around the market.
Now to hit the Charity shops..
Now for a coffee...
They didn't have Full Fat Milk (Blue)
So had soya milk with my Americano
Now to get back on the Charity Shop Hunt.
Got lots of bargains!
Now back home.
Got the soup maker out....
The soup didn't taste as good as yesterday :(
Live and learn. 
Hubby went out to get some Ear Plugs, as it would have been another night for me on the sofa as my Ear Plugs from Amazon wasn't coming until tomorrow.
He found some!
Hubby then went out with son to do the week's shopping (And next door's shopping)
One Black Audi travelling with no headlights, actually went off the highway and went back on.
Hubby was glad it turned left at the Road Traffic Island.
I got on with writing the blog from yesterday.
When he returned, I helped put the shopping away.
Now for tea.

 Now to watch the second film...
Now to read today's newspaper.
