Welcome to my Mother's Day 🌺
Lots to do and see.... 
Once I got up, I got the Flask ready to take.
Breakfast and Brew.
Then I put on a short sleeved thermal vest.
Loaded up the car.
Then off we go...
Nice view of a plane landing ↓
Took a picture of the car park to remember where we parked the car!
Now to walk to the show.
Found a load of Teslas parked up.
We got to the show,
(After getting through the metal detectors)
Hubby let the trolley fall over twice.
(We found out much later when getting the flask out of the trolley, the flask has smashed!)
We wasn't very impressed with the first hall we went in.
Moved onto the second hall. 
I met up with my friend from Scotland.
I got some more Minions material.
We sat down for twenty minutes to enjoy the spot of coffee we could get from the smashed coffee flask.
We went back around the second hall.
I got some sequin material.
Then we walked back to the car.
It started spitting with rain when we were walking. Got back to the car just in time.
Now for a nice drive home.
Unpacked all my bargains.
Lunch time.
We pumped a balloon and put it and the flowers in
Sexy Beast.
Now out for ride in Sexy Beast.
First to check the tyre pressures.
Now to see my parents...
Flowers and a balloon were given.
Nothing from the other two siblings.
No surprise there. 
Off to town to collect two magic bags.
Nice view from the car park.
Gets some nice bits for the garden.

Back home to put out the nice bits in the garden.
Both sons were back.
Nice to be spoilt :)

Driving In Some Nice Cars!

It's fast, my Cortina.You could drive 50 miles for a bag of chips in this car and they would still be warm when you got home.
 - Rigsby, Rising Damp
Welcome to my Hump of the Week 🐫
As far as Heardle 60s is concerned.
Never heard of it.
(Plus forgot to take a pic of my son's answers)
Time for brew and breakfast.
Puts the coffee machine on.
Now to water some plants in the garden.
Then the heavens open!
At least this was right!
Time for a coffee until it stops raining!
We put some bottles of water in the ice bag.
Now off for a Classic Car Experience.
Lots of nice cars to drive.
Bottle of wine anyone?
The Black MG is the one we drive first.
The gears are really close together.
We get to the first stop in one piece...
Nice drive in it↓
There were loads of classic cars there too.
There were Reindeers too.
Another classic car.
Nice views!
Which car are we going to drive now?
BMW time
 Out of the four couples, I turned right at the Crossroads, and everyone else kept going!
It was nice to have the roof down!
Gets to the next stop!
Coffee time!
Now for the final ride in a classic car.
There was traffic lights on the way home.
We drove to Evesham, through Hanbury, then to Bromsgrove.
We had to turn right into the yard.
The other Jag arrived back the same time as us.
We dropped the car back. 
Back home!
I did a quick pasta tea.
Hubby went off to a lads night watching WWE wrestling.
