Road Trip To....

Friends come and go, but enemies accumulate - Murphy's Law.
Welcome to my Thursday 🚗
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.

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  🎈

Welcome to my Sunday 🔮
Nice warm hug.
Breakfast and brew soon followed.
I was up early as I was doing all day course.
Why is it you can never find a flask when you want one?
Put the coffee machine on..
(As I am taking some nice coffee with me!)
Thermal vest goes on!
Finds flask.
Loads up bag.
Now out of the house I go.
Gives hubby a sloppy wet one.
Off I go.
Gets there a bit early, as the gates are locked.
Once the gates are open.
I break open the flask and look forward to a good course with good company!
While I was doing my course.
Hubby and kids went to have their haircuts.
Then off to Stratford Upon Avon to have a look around.
Nice ring for £79,000!
I took in some homemade soup for my lunch.
Hubby and the kids got back about 3pm.
I gets back home.
I got some nice things to exercise my mind with:
Enjoyed a much needed cup of brew.
Hubby got the tea on the go.
I wrote yesterday's blog post.
When I finished...
Tea was ready!
Afterwards, sorted out all the washing we had done over the weekend.
Quick look in today's newspaper.
