Magic Bags Time!

 The safest way to double your money is to fold it over once and put it in your pocket - Kim Hubbard
Welcome to the Sunday πŸ’“
Breakfast and Brew.
Then back to sleep!
Later on, we got up.
Quick coffee.
Then out to give Sexy Beast a run...
First to test the tyres↓
We went past the lidl we shopped in yesterday, and saw one of my friends who I chat to in the afternoons, sat in his car.
He got a toot and wave, then we carried on to see my parents.
It's my late mum's Birthday next Sunday.
She would have been 78 years old 🎈
In the UK we are having a one off Bank Holiday next May 8th.
May 8th 2023, it will be the 10th anniversay of my mum's death :( 
There were some nice flowers left at one grave.
It started to rain.
Back home.
Coffee time.
I got on with making tonight's tea.
Once I have done it, it went in the oven on low.
We had a cheese roll for lunch.
Now to collect some Magic Bags.
First one was from Redditch Morrisons.
Then to go and get one from Bromsgrove Morrisons.
We dropped off our younger son's friend at home.
Now back home to look at the lovely stuff in our Magic Bags!
Loads of lovely stuff!
Now to dish up the tea.

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 Sunday🎈
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 old🎈
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 🎑
