The weekend is here \o/
I woke up and saw the sun coming up↗↗
 I caught the last hour of "The Sounds of the 60s", while enjoying a cup of tea in my warm bed!
  Once we had breakfast.
Kids were woken up, as they had boxing club to go to. 
My dad failed to tell us on Friday that he had run out of some of his tablets. As his doctors were not open today, we had to phone 111 to get a urgent perscription for this tablets!
 Hubby took kids to boxing and pick up his perscription.
I meanwhile played with the saw!
 Then coffee with nibble
Quick read of a nice magazine that came yesterday↓
Nice items, nice prices!
Hubby and kids come back.
My dad failed to tell my hubby last night and this morning to get his newspaper.
