Road Trip To....

Friends come and go, but enemies accumulate - Murphy's Law.
Welcome to my Thursday πŸš—
Nice big warm hug to start the day off with.
Brew with Breakfast.
No thermal vest needed.
It's going to be warm!
I left the house early to fetch a Magic Bag.
Nice crane moving about.
Collects the magic bag.
Goes and gets the newspaper.
Now back home.
Coffee machine goes on....
Blue summer dress goes on.
And back out we go.
Drops off son at school.
Then we start on the roadtrip....
Park up.
Now to look for bargains in the charity shops.
We went into 4 and didn't buy anything.
We looked into the Christmas Show.
Then off for a much needed coffee with nibble.
Now to carry on walking....
 
We were going to have lunch,
But we looked at the menu.
Too expensive. 
Back to explore Stratford.
Now to hit more Charity Shops.
My dad's favourite film↑↑
Every John Wayne film for £28.
I was tempted....
We had a lunch on a bench where the market normally is on a Saturday.
Now to walk that lunch off by going back to the car.
Then off to the Reuse Centre to get more bargains.
Then off to Aldi to get something for tea.
I saw one of my friends in the car park,
(Who I chat too in the afternoon)
She went off to work.
Goes in and gets out tea.
Phone goes, it's my lollipop boss up at my spot asking why I'm not on duty!
I booked it off last week to spend some valuble time with hubby after yesterday.
He didn't get the email!
Back home.
Unpacks the bargains I got.
While I wrote 2 blog posts.
Hubby made the tea.
Looked into today's newspaper.
UK No.1 on this day in 1973:
Wizzard - See My Baby Jive.
USA No.1 on this day in 1973:
Stevie Wonder - You Are The Sunshine Of My Life
Hubby and I watched the lovely sunset..
Sleep tea time.
Hubby's snoring went extreme loud.
I could hear it through my earplugs.
Back on the settee I went to sleep...
Friday Feeling's back tomorrow  🎈

Jazzing It Up!

We may go to the Moon, but that's not very far. The greatest distance we have to cover still lies within us - Charles De Gaulle
 
Welcome to my ThursdayπŸ‘―
No problems on the snoring front....
Hug with a brew.
Breakfast.
Dressed.
Hubby went out and got my newspaper for me.
He had a jolly good wet πŸ’‹ before he went to work.
One of our other sons couldn't escape from it either!
I went round to see my neighbour with his magazine.
I found out why I hadn't received my gardening magazine, as it was delivered to him and not me!
Back to mine for coffee..
Quick read of the newspaper.
 Jodie Foster is an American actress and director. She has received two Academy Awards, three British Academy Film Awards, two Golden Globe Awards, and the Cecil B. DeMille Award. For her work as a director, she has been nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award.She is 58 years old 🎈
 I wrote yesterday's blog post.
Found out where the staples were stored.
Now to jazz up the floor lamp!
The trim was in the sale, in Dunelm before the second lockdown took place. I always find something to use things with.
I had to phone the Doctors, has I have been having stomach cramps for the past four days.
I read the leaflet for the tablets, if having stomach cramps stop taking them.
Will wait to see what the Doctor has to say about it.
Lunchtime
Plus 2 episodes of Hell's Kitchen season 9.
I actually had some post today.\o/
One Christmas present had to be hidden away!
The Doctor phoned. Stop the tablets straight away. If the knee is still painful, before I am due to go back, they will extend the sick note.
(I will so be popular if that happens!) 
Now to thread the bobbin!
Woo hoo....
My chalk and pinking shears has arrived!
Now to measure up the material for the curtain!
It has two layers of thermal backing.
After I clipped it altogether, pan fried the pork chops and let them cook in  some nice cider.
Got the curtain made \o/
Found some curtain rings I bought in the sale at B&Q a few months ago, that will help!
Dished up the meal for everyone.
Pork Chop with homemade Stuffing, on top of noodles with Crab Apple Jelly.
Then we caught up on the two episodes of Season 19 of Hell's Kitchen.
With Sleep Tea.
We are putting up the Christmas decorations up this weekend. How this year has gone, we need a bit of sparkle....
I'm glad I got my late mum's Xmas decorations from my dad's house↓↓
I was looking to see what is coming up on the early Black Friday on Amazon for tomorrow....
I might update the Christmas lights...
Our house won't end up looking  like Blackpool Illuminations, but it might be close!
Friday Feeling is back tomorrow🎈
