Points Don't Mean Prizes!

I'm not a snob. Ask anybody. Well, anybody who matters - 
Simon LeBon.
Welcome to my Saturday 💪
Hug with brew.
We listened to the last hour of 
"Sounds of the 60s".
Both kids were up...
Now out of the house.
Drops off one son at his workplace.
Off to Lidl.
There was a nice t.v for sale in Lidl.
It wouldn't fit on our tv stand even if we wanted it!
I did a bit of shopping to get the £10 voucher for next week.
Now to park in the Asda car park.
Off to look in the Charity Shops.
The Town Crier was giving a good shout out!
Now to hit the shops.
I got some great bargains...
I popped into Costa Coffee for a drink.
I don't mind waiting.
The 3 members of staff was rushed off their feet.
 The woman in front of me, her bill came to £5.90, she handed over a piece of paper and then the total went to £0.
Then she wanted points added onto her Costa Coffee account. The staff tried and couldn't do it.
She wasn't happy about it! 
(Karen alert!)
I got my coffees and left the shop.
I got some 50s CDs for £1.
Found a older version of my Kenny in one Charity Shop↓
Then we heard Bagpipes...
Then we saw
Sajid Javid, the MP for Bromsgrove.
This is what was going on in the High Street.
I saw a nice hat in the shop window.
I went in, bought the multi-coloured hat 
Blue one.
Dropped off the bargains in the car.
Quick look in Asda...
There were some nice Ghomes on the way out.
On the way home, we got another coffee with doughnuts....
Back home to unpack everything...
Time to have a doughnut!
Hubby went to pick up son from his workplace.
The Daily Star had a funny front page.
(Free facemask)
I added more things to tree..↓
I wrote two blog posts.
Now for a nice tea....
Then we watched Oceans 13.
The Health Minister has now resigned over the scandal...
Sajid Javid is now the Health Minister.
Sleep Tea time.
Now it's time to make the most of Saturday Night in a warm bed with warm hands!

 I picked up a bread mix from Waitrose last Saturday. Time for the bread maker to come out.
I got Kenny the Kenwood out for a very quick play too.
Then to rest the leg, by writing yesterday's blog post....
The chocolate orange tray bake turned out alright ;)
Light lunch
My sewing pattern to make my own skirts arrived in the post.
My friend phoned and suggested watching 
The Great Sewing Bee.
I managed to track down Series 4.
The bread turned out to alright as well.
My youngest son has a bit and loved it!
He sat and watched a episode of The Great British Sewing Bee.
Hubby went to shop in Aldi after work.
Much better in there, there was a cleaning station for the trolley and your hands.
Ordered more fabric to make some skirts for me.
The books from the Great British Sewing Bee show was bit expensive for me.
I have another book coming tomorrow to help with my tasks of improving my wardrobe!!!
Tea was ready.
Vegetarian tonight!
Hubby went to do my job.
I watched more of the Sewing Bee.
We caught up with the news when he came back. 
Some fun in Parliament earlier↑↑↑

Had A Couple Of Little Pricks..

A gift, with a kind countenance, is a double present - Thomas Fuller
Welcome to my Tuesday 💮
Brew and Hug.
I gave everyone their sloppy wet 💋💋💋
I took some nice sunrise photos...
I start my lollipop job.
I am stood in the middle of the road.
A car on behind me, decides he doesn't want to wait, and carries on driving, and nearly takes my hand with him!
The BMW driver from yesterday, did stop this morning and let me cross some school children over the road.
A few cars didn't stop.
I was glad to finish in one piece.
I had to get a move on as I had to have my flu jab by 9.30am.
While I was there, I had the pneumonia jab.
Two little pricks....
Then off home afterwards..
Much needed coffee↓
I needed that!
Back out with some more singing!
Quick read of the newspaper↓

 Now to look across the fields of fun↓
I go in to do my bit.
Back out later for more singing...
Back home.
Light lunch
Back on the Lollipop...
The BMW driver stopped for me once more.
A few car drivers didn't want to stop and didn't even look at me crossing over the road!
As soon as I finished, I got chatting to my friend and gave his dog some fuss.
I gets home.
Puts the tea in the oven.
I writes yesterday's blog.
We had noodles with chicken.
Caught up with one episode of NYPD Blue.
Then off to do some work with a dash of singing...
When I got back.
I jumped into a hot shower.
It was nice to have some heating on!
I found the address I can send Manfred Mann his 80th Birthday Card for next week.
I will be getting his Birthday Card tomorrow.
Hoping for a sunny Hump Day tomorrow..
