Another night enjoying the king size bed instead of the sofa....\o/

We drops off our sons for their little walk.
I visit and tidy up my parent's grave↓
Then off to Asda↓

While my hubby waited in the car, I got two lovely plants from B&Q.
Then we drives to Sainsburys.

Pork Tea↓
 For the next two hours I was trying to get the machine to sew a bobbin....
Nothing happened....
Uses the other sewing machine to do that.
It uses a special bobbin, so can't use the metal or plastic ones other machines can use.
Found some on Ebay.......
Now to see if it can sew!!!
2 Hours later....
A lot of blue language....
I move the foot petal a bit.....
*Hey Presto!!!!!*
*It's sews!!!!!* 
 I put some spare material in , and away I go!
I looked how much a new foot petal would be......
(I could get another machine for that!!!)
Let's hope tomorrow,
It's play ball and works.......
After that...
I was so glad of some sleep tea after that ๐ŸŽก
