I Can See Miles Of Motorway

 “I generally avoid temptation unless I can't resist it.” ...- Mae West.
Welcome to my Sunday 🎈
Hug and Brew.
We had to drop off son at his Boxing lesson.
Out we went in Sexy Beast. 
It was still raining.
Checked the tyres...
 Back home to swap over the cars.
Checked tyres on hubby's car and
filled up for the week.
Picked up a take away coffee..
Picked up son from his Boxing lesson.
I sorted out my lollipop gear for tomorrow.
Had lunch
After lunch we went to look at a new hamster.
Out in Sexy Beast we went....
The lovely hamster will be ready to have in 2 weeks.
Back on the motorway home.
By the time we got back, we fitted in a little walk of 0.98 miles.
Nice easy tea for Sunday.
I wrote two blog posts.
Read yesterday's newspaper.
