Oh Dear, How Sad!

 Cheer up! The worst is yet to come! - Chase Johnson
Welcome to my Saturday 🚗
I listened to Sounds of 60s.
Then it was Breakfast and Brew.
I got dressed.
(I left the thermal vest off)
Got both kids up.
Loaded up shopping trolley into Sexy Beast. 
I gets the newspaper.
Drops off son at work.
Then off to enjoy some car booty at Stratford Car Boot.
The whole field was full.
My son and I went around twice and got some bargains!
Then I drove back home.
Bargains I bought today↑↑↑
Now for some nibbles...
I went to pick son up from work.
Nipped to the Garden Centre for more compost.
Came back.
Now for another nibble.
While I was in the front garden, potting some plants. Someone handed in next door's neighbour's son's keys as he left them in his Land Rover.
As hubby has got Covid, I went round to hand them in.
Went past their old television...↓
I gave my neighbour the keys. Made him a coffee.
I told him about hubby's dad passing away.
His response was: "Oh well, nevermind."
I left soon afterwards.
Now to carry on potting some plants.
Finished for now.
Still got more to do tomorrow.
Tea time.
Quick look in today's newspaper.

Reaching For The Gardening Gloves....

Did you really pose for that calendar with nothing on?
"I had the radio on!" - Marilyn Monroe
Welcome to my Sunday Love 💓
Nice big hug...
Brew with breakfast.
Up I got,
Thermal vest goes on.
Lots of chores to do...
Coffee machine goes on....
As does the breadmaker..
Now to get out for some fresh air...
Nips to the local garden centre.
Reminds of someone....
Meets someone in there, I used to work with.
She left the company, 3 weeks ago.
They still haven't replaced me after 2 years!
We loaded the plants in the car.
Then off to Co-op for some reduced food.
One of my friends who I talk to on weekday afternoons was just driving off in his car.
I shouted several times, he finally stopped.
I asked him,"If there were any bargains to be had."
"I didn't see any,"He said.
"I will see you next week, and have a good Sunday!" I said to him.
We get a trolley and look in there.
Loads of reduced food!
Loaded up car, and off to see my parents.
I taking away the pot of plants, as the lavender has died over the winter.
Back home we go.
Unloads the car of food and plants.
The bread was done!
We had sandwiches outside in the sunshine.
Afterwards, he did his thing.
I had some quiet time in the garden to pot and tidy up the garden!
Not bad for 3 hours gardening!
Meanwhile hubby had been getting on with the Roast Chicken Tea.
We then caught up with the final episode of "Dragon's Den".
"Have I Got News For You!"
Final 2 episodes of the second season of "Fame"
Quick look in the newspaper.

Welcome to my Monday in Blackpool🗼
Nice warm hug with brew to start Monday!
Had a lovely cooked breakfast.
We are going to explore outside Blackpool today.
Now out to get the tram!
We missed one tram.
The next tram was full.
The next tram we squeezed on.

We sat down in the public square to rest our feet!
Then we caught the bus to
St Annes on Sea.
I got loads of bargains.
Our favourite shop shut at 3pm.
So we nipped into another Coffee Shop.
The person serving wasn't very nice, when I only ordered 3 drinks and not 4.
One of my sons didn't want anything!
I bought some crochet blankets...
I hope soon I will be able to do my own!
We went into one place and before he gave us a price on anything, he looked it up on Ebay!
The Porsche was £16
The lambo was £14.
I decided on something else...
It was too late to visit the Les Dawson Statue.
