Sleeping Beauty rose from his warm pit.
We had breakfast.
Thermal vest went on.
Dressed.
Time to do some food shopping
(And use the £10 off voucher for Lidl)
We got 2 wobbly boxes.
Then we moved the car and had a look in the charity shops.
Hubby needed another suit jacket for his Aunt's Funeral next week.
Found a nice one with a long black rain mac for £16.
I was on the hunt for more minions to go with the one I bought last week.
I was not disappointed.....
We looked in all the charity shops and had to hurry back to car as the parking ticket was running out.
Now back home to unpack all the shopping.
Lots of jigsaws to keep the younger son busy.
Lunchtime.
20 minutes power nap.
Then to put all the things away I bought earlier.
The Christmas Balloon and Bakery came out for Christmas.↓
I have wrote to two more inmates in prison in the United States.
I hope to hear from the other four I sent letters too in the near future.
Tea time.
Steak Time.
I found two shopping lists while I was in Lidl this morning.

We finished watching the BBC Three series on 
Life and Death Row.
Truth
Life and Death Row Series 2
Episode 3 of 4
Life and Death Row tells the story of capital punishment through the eyes of young people whose lives have been shaped by it. With unprecedented access inside prison walls, it discovers what it's like to live with the threat of the death chamber, as well as hearing from victims and their families, and the family of those on death row - some praying for execution, some hoping for a reprieve. Each episode focuses on different aspects of the system - execution, punishment and the complex nature of 'truth'.
In January 2014, Waynesville, Ohio, 18-year-old Justin Back is brutally murdered in his own home. Two of his 19-year-old friends, Austin Myers and Timothy Mosley, are arrested and charged with his murder. However both give very different versions of events, begging the question, who is telling the truth?
With prosecutors seeking the death penalty for the crime, what will each one do to save themselves from the ultimate punishment? With access to the families of all three boys, the devastating nature of this gruesome crime and it's repercussions are revealed. It's one crime but will there be two different outcomes?
Forgiveness
Life and Death Row Series 2
Episode 4 of 4
Tyrone Trottie killed his wife Barbara and her brother Titus on May 3rd, 1993. He has been on death row for the last 21 years. An execution date has been set for a week's time. Tyrone and Barbara had a son together, affectionately called T.T. This is his story. T.T. was raised by Tyrone's parents, who for years kept the fact that T.T's father had killed his mother a secret from him. As a teenager he met his father for the first time behind prison bars and discovered the devastating truth about what his father had done. With Execution Day a week away, T.T has to prepare himself to lose a parent all over again. Will he forgive his father before he loses him forever?
 Love Triangle
Over eight mini-episodes, Life and Death Row: Love Triangle tells the story of Heather Strong, a beautiful young wife and mother, who has disappeared without trace. Concerned for her whereabouts, detectives bring in her estranged husband Joshua Fulgham for questioning. During his initial interview, police discover Josh had a pregnant lover, Emilia Carr. Growing more suspicious, detectives want to interview Emilia to find out what she knows about the disappearance of Heather.

In the later part of his life, Rich acquired the nickname the Silver Fox. He is perhaps best remembered for a pair of 1973 hits, "Behind Closed Doors" and "The Most Beautiful Girl". "The Most Beautiful Girl" topped the U.S. country singles charts, as well as the Billboard Hot 100 pop singles charts and earned him two Grammy Awards.
