I Don't Need For Those Push Ups Thank You!

The thing with high-tech is that you always end up using scissors - David Hockney
Welcome to my Sunday๐ŸŽˆ
Picking up another sewing machine later....
Nice drive out...
I wakes up at 7am...
Leaves sleeping beauty along to snore..
Looks out the front door,
Is that a rain cloud or not?
 Too early to be up on a Sunday↓
 Enjoys a brew↓
 Once Sleeping Beauty rose from the warm pit.
We had breakfast, dressed, and out for a much needed walk↓
 Someone has pulled a sold sign up????
 Oh dear, look at my dad's front garden :(
 Another street sign pulled up↓
Too much of this I expect↓ 
 Down the steps↓
 Up the bridge we go↗↗↗
 The view↓
 Football appeared like magic↓
Nice to sit in the garden we will got back↓
 Then off out for a little ride↓
 Nips in to Dunelm,
As it's the last day of the sale.
 I don't think I will be needing no push up pads thanks↓
 Gets back home to find, they hadn't looked at a sale price, and the barcode they scanned was wrong.Back in on Tuesday for a £4 refund....
 Early lunch↓
  Quick read of the newspaper:
Robbie Robertson, is a Canadian musician, songwriter, film composer, producer, actor, and author. Robertson is best known for his work as lead guitarist and primary songwriter for The Band, and for his career as a solo recording artist.He is 77 years old๐ŸŽˆ
Now off for another ride↓
 Woo hoo got my sewing machine with extra bits↓
 Now on the way back↓
 Woo hoo a big monster↓
 It still has the receipt from John Lewis for £400 back in 1993!
Pork Tea↓
 For the next two hours I was trying to get the machine to sew a bobbin....
Nothing happened....
Uses the other sewing machine to do that.
It uses a special bobbin, so can't use the metal or plastic ones other machines can use.
Found some on Ebay.......
Now to see if it can sew!!!
2 Hours later....
A lot of blue language....
I move the foot petal a bit.....
*Hey Presto!!!!!*
*It's sews!!!!!* 
 I put some spare material in , and away I go!
I looked how much a new foot petal would be......
(I could get another machine for that!!!)
Let's hope tomorrow,
It's play ball and works.......
After that...
I was so glad of some sleep tea after that ๐ŸŽก

If Needs Must...

How times flies when it's you who's doing all the talking - Harvey Fierstein
I had a lovely lie-in...
(Missed "Sounds of the 60s")
No sunshine just yet↓ 
 I enjoyed my snuggles and cup of tea.
 I wrote up yesterday blog post.
Younger son has lost interest in the Boxing session. Our other son hasn't.
So we went our separate ways...
 Younger son and I went to fill up Sexy Beast.
We got a few items from Morrisons.
My son commented:
"You haven't met anyone to chat today,that is a first!"
I laughed.
I enjoyed a take-away coffee.

We popped my dad's newspaper in,
Then off to B&Q for some new curtain poles.
 Nice kitchen↑
It must be a rare day of bumping into anyone to chat to! 
By the time I gets back,
Hubby and other son is back from the boxing.
We have a late lunch↓
Then out to get some more food shopping.
We gets back home to unpack the shopping.
Catch up time:
 The Graham Norton Show:
In a rare UK talk show appearance, Bruce Springsteen discusses his new documentary Western Stars. Robert De Niro talks about his role in Martin Scorsese's The Irishman. Plus music from James Blunt.
Have I Got News For You

My younger brother had tried to phone me.
I didn't answer as he was going to make excuses for not visiting his dad Monday Night...
My younger brother texted my hubby.
"IF NEEDS MUST, He will pop in on Monday to see our dad, even though he has got a small cold!"
Rolling my eyes on that text.
Off to enjoy my hubby and a warm bed...
