Stratford, Here We Come!

If I were two-faced, would I be wearing this one? - Abraham Lincoln
Welcome to my roadtrip Tuesday 🚗
Breakfast and Brew.
Just after 8am, I had a phone call from the Councl Gas Department saying sorry for sending out the letter yesterday, telling me that are taking me to court to get access to my house to do a gas check.
(Even though they did the gas check last Wednesday!)
Great start for the day!
Gets dressed.
Now to get out of the house...
First stop was to do my Councillor duties of checking the Recreation Ground.
No newspaper at the local shop.
(It was the same last Tuesday)
Oh dear.
Files my paperwork.
Now onwards to Stratford upon Avon.
The parking charges had gone up today.
£5.50 for 4 hours.
Lots of things in the Charity Shops.
Really good cup in one shop.
More walking and looking in shops.
Cream teas time!
Then off to more walking about.
While we were chatting to the nice Parking Attendant, a car mounted the pavement and nearly took us out!
I told the passenger who got out of the car,
"Thanks for trying to take us out!"
She grumbled sorry and crossed the road.
Said goodbye to our friend and carried onto the next Charity Shop.
That is so nice!
Nice hat, nice price.....£350..
We had look at the market.
Looked at the river.
We had a few more Charity Shops to visit.
Got more bargains.
We ate our lunch in the car.
Then off to the Recycle Centre at Stratford Household site.
Plenty of bargains I got from there too.
On the way back, the Repairs department phoned me to say, the Pointing will be done in November, and someone is coming to look at the windows and doors. Fingers crossed we can have new windows soon....
Back home to see a large van parked over the drive.
The Council is finishing off clearing next door's house.
(The stuff left out by the back door was starting to smell)
Unpacked all the bargains we got.
Hubby strimmed the grass out the front.
I put in tonight's tea.
The men left after clearing everything out of next door's house.
The cooker and washing machine has finally gone!
Tea is ready.
Now to watch one of the Dvds we bought today.

Let's hope for a sunny hump day tomorrow 🐫
