Getting Some More!

Some mornings, it's just not worth chewing the leather straps - Emo Philips.
Welcome to my Saturday πŸ‘£
At least the sun is out!
Heardle Time!
Heardle 60s:
My son's answers:
Now for some brew with breakfast.
Dressed.
Hubby and younger son went off to do some food shopping.
I put on the coffee machine.

Unpacked the shopping.

Cold coffee and nibble time.
Now out for a ride!
Got caught up in the four way traffic lights on the way, glad I know a few short cuts so not to sit in them too long!
Those dark clouds don't look good!
Now to have a look around some charity shops.
First one had vinyl records...
DVDS...
&
A unicorn, which I bought!
Next Charity Shop had a nice crochet blanket for sale.
Then as I bought it, everyone was talking about each other's level of crocheting!
I am a true beginner I said.
At least the blanket will keep me warm in the winter!
Nice shoes pity they are not my size!
One charity shop had a Minion I didn't own,
Then they had another for sale!
Nice flowers for sale.
Got some bits from Waitrose.
Drink time↓
Back home to unpack all my bargains.
Another Unicorn for my collection!
My Minion collection is now growing...
Play Time!
Late lunch.
Sorting things out on the planner to watch later.
It's down to 9%....
'Allo,'Allo: 40 Years of laughter.
Tea.
3 episodes of "Top of the Pops" to watch.
My fast forward button was being used.
At least 2 Unlimited was still in the top 10 with:
Then watched a half an hour special on the 50th Anniversary of the Godfather.
Followed by:
Top of the Pops - Secrets and Scandals.
Quickly looked into today's newspaper.

We had our second Christmas card
Some nice material arrived just in time to make some Christmas face masks!
Nice cup of coffee...
We wrote out the list for the shopping....
One of our children got the list from next door for his shopping.
I attempted to write yesterday's blog post.
It was taking longer than expected...
(Kept replaying Jesus Jones and some of the other 60's to sing along to!)
Hubby went to get the shopping in.
I bought another sewing table to do up.
Make the most of the time before I go 
BACK TO WORK....

Curtain ties for the living room.

Once hubby and son come back.
The tea gets put in the oven.
I just finished the blog when tea was ready to be served up!
We watched one episode of 
Season 11 of Hell's Kitchen...
Then watched↓
I needed cheering up after that.
I earlier was looking through my late dad's DVDs and came across a feel good movie↓↓
Really brilliant film!
Now to watch the final of 
Hell's Kitchen season 11.
The winner was:
Ja'Nel
