Reaching Half A Century!

 “At age 50, everyone has the face he deserves.” - George Orwell
Welcome to my 50th Birthday Party 🎈
Time to open the cards and presents!
Now to get dressed.
(thermal vest goes on)
Then it's Breakfast and Brew time!
I have 2 lovely cards and presents off my two sons.
Now to leave the house....
I gives hubby a wet sloppy one before I leave.
Two winter hats and big gloves go on.
I put on my lights.
Now for the fun to start!
The High School has got a TE day.
The other 3 schools are still open.
I had lots of Happy Birthdays greetings.
It might have been quiet for traffic,
still got cars doing the Limbo under my stick and just looking up to see if I can hit their car roof as they go under....
BOING,BOING,BOING went my stick!
At least I finished in one piece.
Picks up newspaper on the way home.
Dropped off the newspaper.
Now back out.
Coffee & Chat time.
Both of my friends were there,
(Who I chat to in the afternoon!)
More lovely cards and hand cream :)
Chat, coffee and toast :)
Once finished we all said to each other.
"See you later Alligator!"
Back home I go.
Now to put all the cards on display!
My younger brother dropped in a Birthday card through the letter box on Saturday.
He must have forgot my first name, as he just wrote Sister in my card!
Lunchtime.
Then back out for Round 2.
It forecasted rain while doing it.
On goes the sexy lumo trousers.
On goes the boots, two hats, and waterproof gloves.
I turn on my lights, and walk back to my two friends waiting.
Time for a Rabbit....
As soon as I say "Goodbye!"
It starts to rain.
On goes the hood.
I was crossing a dog walker over the road.
When the dog wouldn't go any further, the woman wasn't looking where the lead was, and tripped over the lead, straight on her face she went, I was in the middle of the road.I helped her up.
"The dog is frightened of your big stick,"She said dragging the dog past me.
I replied,"Most car drivers are frightened of my big stick as well!"
Lots of BOINGs been given out as some cars were just driving under my stick.
At least I finished in one piece.
&
Still raining!
Back home.
Now to get ready for the meal later on.
Hubby comes back for a wet one.
Time for rain mac....
3 Mixed Grills.

Looking In The Mirror!

There is no such as a little garlic - Arthur Baer
Welcome to my Saturday 👍
I woke up at 5.50am.
I got up and made a brew.
I listened to "The Sounds of the 60s" while writing yesterday's blog post. 
Sleeping Beauty woke up and we enjoyed breakfast.
Then to wake up son to drop him off at his work.
Dressed.
 It was my hubby's late mum's 81st Birthday today.
(She passed away 26 years ago)
Then out!
Drops off son.
Then off to Stratford Car Boot.
We had to park in the overspill car park.
Spot the Eastenders Characters!
Now to look around....
Here is the conversation I overheard...
Buyer: The view is not nice in this mirror..
Seller: Beauty is in the eye of the beholder
Buyer:I'm interested in this mirror
Seller:Give me an offer for it
Buyer: There is a bit missing of the mirror, no thanks, and he put the mirror down!
I found another Black eyed Susan vine.
Red flowers on it.
It was only £2.50!
Bargain!
Another look around.
I went past a old Singer Sewing Machine...
It looked good...
Bit the hand's man off for how much it was.
It was heavy, hubby had to swap hands taking it back to the car!
The boot full.
Now off to visit Alcester.
There was no price on anything....
I got a card and balloons for my friend who is 70 today. 
We enjoyed a fishcake and chips lunch.
Now to deliver the balloons and card!
He wasn't in, so I tied the balloons to the door handle.
(I'm sure he will be pleased when he came back!)
Back home to unpack the car 
&
Have a much needed coffee!
Here is a pictures of before my house and garden looked like 12 years ago, and now.
Now out to get a lucky bag from Morrisons.
Then for tea. 
Yummy.
Quick look into today's newspaper.
Windsor Davies  was a Welsh actor whose career in film and television spanned forty years. He is best remembered for playing Battery Sergeant Major Williams in the sitcom It Ain't Half Hot Mum (1974–1981) over its entire run. The show's popularity resulted in Davies and his co-star Don Estelle achieving a UK number one hit with a version of "Whispering Grass" in 1975. He later starred with Donald Sinden in Never the Twain (1981–1991), and his deep Welsh-accented voice was heard extensively in advertising voice-overs. 
He would have been 91 years old 🎈
He sadly died aged 88 in 2019

Now for some Sleep Tea...
As normal we carried on watching something on Netflix, and fell asleep!
Upstairs to bed as off to visit another car boot tomorrow!
