Stratford, Here We Come!

If I were two-faced, would I be wearing this one? - Abraham Lincoln
Welcome to my roadtrip Tuesday πŸš—
Breakfast and Brew.
Just after 8am, I had a phone call from the Councl Gas Department saying sorry for sending out the letter yesterday, telling me that are taking me to court to get access to my house to do a gas check.
(Even though they did the gas check last Wednesday!)
Great start for the day!
Gets dressed.
Now to get out of the house...
First stop was to do my Councillor duties of checking the Recreation Ground.
No newspaper at the local shop.
(It was the same last Tuesday)
Oh dear.
Files my paperwork.
Now onwards to Stratford upon Avon.
The parking charges had gone up today.
£5.50 for 4 hours.
Lots of things in the Charity Shops.
Really good cup in one shop.
More walking and looking in shops.
Cream teas time!
Then off to more walking about.
While we were chatting to the nice Parking Attendant, a car mounted the pavement and nearly took us out!
I told the passenger who got out of the car,
"Thanks for trying to take us out!"
She grumbled sorry and crossed the road.
Said goodbye to our friend and carried onto the next Charity Shop.
That is so nice!
Nice hat, nice price.....£350..
We had look at the market.
Looked at the river.
We had a few more Charity Shops to visit.
Got more bargains.
We ate our lunch in the car.
Then off to the Recycle Centre at Stratford Household site.
Plenty of bargains I got from there too.
On the way back, the Repairs department phoned me to say, the Pointing will be done in November, and someone is coming to look at the windows and doors. Fingers crossed we can have new windows soon....
Back home to see a large van parked over the drive.
The Council is finishing off clearing next door's house.
(The stuff left out by the back door was starting to smell)
Unpacked all the bargains we got.
Hubby strimmed the grass out the front.
I put in tonight's tea.
The men left after clearing everything out of next door's house.
The cooker and washing machine has finally gone!
Tea is ready.
Now to watch one of the Dvds we bought today.
Sleep Tea Time.
Let's hope for a sunny hump day tomorrow 🐫

Happy 4th Anniversary!

Welcome to the 4th Anniversary of this blog...
Little did I know back in 2014 how many people liked reading about what I get up toπŸ˜‰

Hubby was up early to have his hair chopped back, and kids to have their hair styled ready for school...
I enjoyed some tea in bed..
 I got up and enjoyed coffee and kiwi fruit..
 My little brother hadn't come to pick up his card and present.↓↓
 While I went to do Job,
hubby came back and mowed the lawn. \o/
 I meanwhile put name tags in all my youngest son's school uniform and PE kit.
At least he won't forget his name!
 I'm in the need for some  fresh air.
I visited some Dunelm to get some bits...
 Nice duvet cover :)
We got back and the bush needed chopping back again↓↓↓
 New dog that we won't have to feed or walk 🐢
 New peg bag↑
 Pineapples anyone???
 It was nice to sit out in the garden...
My brother finally came round at 8pm to pick up his card and present.
He looked at his cup, and it said:
"Sometimes a pain in the arse"
"That's nice, I'm not that bad am I?" He asked.
"I'm not going to answer that, 
As I know the answer, and you do...!" I laughed. 
After we caught up with "Dragon's Den" on catch up...
We crashed on the bed....
Busy Monday ahead....
Need for Zzzzzzzzz is so underwhelming

Which One To Do?

Welcome to this wonderful Monday *Feeling*
Once everyone had left the house.
Coffee with a smile...
 Washing machine went on....
Had a little play with Henry..
Caught up on some reading....
✂ Cut out some nice recipes...↓
 After a liquid lunch....↓↓↓
 As it is Shakespeare Week,
To be or not to be...that is the question?
Do I do baking or crafting???? 
 Crafting while watching House MD *Wins*
 Now onto Season 6...
Getting the hang of making Flower looms now \o/
 Nice little hot stir fry to end the day with...
The other half is being frozen for next week.
