I Only Went In To Get One Plant!

 Between two evils, I always pick the one I never tried before  -  Mae West.
Welcome to my busy Saturday ⚘
I got bit later than we normally get up during the week.
We caught the last hour of Sound of the 60s.
Brew with Breakfast followed.
Then to take son to work.
We popped into  Omega for a chat and a coffee.
We nipped into Boomarang and got two bargains.
One ideal present for hubby's dad who likes Blackpool.
We blew up the balloons to put on my dad's grave for Father's Day.
(It will be a nice surprise for brother's went they come up tomorrow to see him!)
Puts them on my dad's grave.
All ready for tomorrow.
At least it brightens up the grave yard!
Back home for a light lunch in the garden.
Then we went to pick up our son from work.
We carried onto Homebase in Bromsgrove.
Compost, reduced plants and pots....
Loads of bargains.
I told one woman while we were pushing the trollies back to the car;
"I only went into the store to get one plant!"
As the kids and hubby loaded up his car full of plants. I carried on talking and they went home to unload the car.
I was still talking when he came back.
(Nearly an hour later, I said goodbye to the woman, who I had never met until today!)
Off to Aldi to get a drink, my throat was all dry from all that talking!
Anyone fancy a mince pie in June?
Nice drink and nibble↓
We got home to unload our bargains.
Next to visit Co-Op for some more bargains.
Lots of things I can cook with on the reduced stand.
Back home to unpack.
Now to use some of the compost up to replant the plants I bought earlier....
Time to use those Diffusers I bought from Aldi↓
Now for a nice bit of tea.
Now to catch up with 4 weeks of Top of The Pops from 1991.

Getting ready to celebrate Father's Day tomorrow......
