New Year's Eve
Welcome to my Saturday Fun!
We were early to do today's Heardles.
Heardle 60s.
My answers:
Breakfast and Brew.
We listened to "The Sounds of the 60s"
UK Top 3 Singles from 1964 
Val Doonican - Walk Tall
Petula Clark - Downtown
The Beatles - I Feel Fine 
Now to put on the thermal vest.
Out to visit some charity shops and to do food shopping.
First stop was to collect some plastic boxes from Argos.
Nice car in the car park↓
Looked in 3 charity shops before Argos.
Pity they weren't my size :(
I did however pick up 2 more minions!
Picked up boxes from Argos.
Now onto to Lidl to do the food shop.
Pity they weren't in my size ↑
We did the shopping.
Back home to unload it all.
Light lunch.
Now to start making room for everything.
Found the Return Back to Work Form from my old lollipop job from 4/7 2018.
I just returned to work after having 8 months off due to my foot injury.
I was only back to work for 2 weeks.
As I asked on the form,
Can I come back in September?
I found out sometime soon after I broke up for the 6 weeks holidays, I was up for redundancy.
My last day was Aug 31st.
Pity one arm don't talk to the other leg and they paid me for September. So after they clawed back the overpayment, I was left with £100 redundancy money! 
More moving about in the Living room!
We ran out of room to put the DVDs.
We made room on top of hubby's wardrobe!
All the minions were put together.
After all this moving about,
Time for a stiff drink!
We had some party food to go along with it.
Quick look in the newspaper:
US No.1 on this day in 1966:
The Monkees - I'm A Believer
We caught up Gordon...
I wasn't going to keep awake up to midnight.
I kept yawning....
Off to bed I went.
I wished my hubby a Happy New Year.
(As we are going travelling alot in 2023.
Some of the places we are going to are:
 Las Vegas, Australia, and going on the train to Scotland in 2023)
Wishing you all a Happy New Year!
