Road Trip to Droitwich!

 Keep your friends close, your enemies closer, and receipts for all major purchases - Bridger Winegar
Welcome to my Saturday Fun 🎄
We listened to the "Sounds of the 60s" in bed.

Now for Breakfast and Brew.
The thermal vest went back on!
Opened the curtains....
The sun is back \o/
We got the trolley ready.
Now to leave the house...
Now off to Droitwich Spa.
We parked just over the road.
Now to visit the Lions.
We said hello to everyone.
Bought some nice stuff.
Said we have three boxes full of books to give them, when they get low on books.
Wished them a Happy Christmas.
We moved onto the next Charity Shop whose system went down, couldn't accept cards,so I had to dig deep for £7 in cash.
Back to the car and to move it to the Waitrose Car park.
The church on the hill.
We visited two more Charity shops.
The third one had a good song playing in the shop, and we had to sing along with it...
 Nice Christmas Tree I found in Wilko↓
Then off for a coffee to warm up!
Then more Charity Shops to explore.
Salvation Army Band was out playing some great Christmas Tunes.
Next stop was to pick up some bits in Waitrose.
There was a brass band playing out the front.
Some nice bits in there↓
Great Private Eye front cover↓
I nipped into the final Charity Shop and found a Frank Ifield signed album!
I found out the story behind the album cover.
Let's have a little bit of Frank Ifield shall we?
Back home to unload all the bargains!
Light lunch...
Then we go out to put a wreath on my parent's grave.
Back home.
I put the tea on.
Then we did today's Heardle.

Then I looked into today's newspaper.

Welcome to my Hump of the Week 🐫
Nice and dark out there....

Heardle 60s:
My answers:

Thermal vest goes on, as well woolly leggings and my long jumper dress....
Time to leave.
I gives hubby a sloppy wet one 💋 before I leave.
On goes two hats, winter coat and gloves.
Gets my newspaper.
Collects my big stick.
Now to turn on my lights.
Once I put on my lights.
Off to work I go 🍭
There is some work at the Angel light opposite me. The light hasn't been on since the big switch on last Friday.
There were a few cars had to brake quickly!
A few BOINGs were given out.
I was getting well warm in all my layers!
Off went the Panda Hat and one glove!
Opened my coat to let the steam out!
Finished in one piece...
I went down the Co-op to get bits for my homemade soup.
(The Christmas Tree) in the car park.
I got my bits and headed home.
Coffee machine went on.
Now for some housework.
Loaded up Dishwasher.
Puts the bins out for tomorrow.
Put the shopping away.
Put the soup maker on.
Now for coffee..
Once the soup was done, in a big jug it went.
That should last up to 3 days!
Ticked off things I have got for everyone for Christmas.
Wrote out the list of people for Christmas Cards.
As of every year the list goes down every year.
I will have to send off the Christmas Cards to people who live outside the Redditch soon.
I am making a Fake Faux Pom Pom wreath.
I have ordered some Pom Poms in the sale.
I hope they come before Christmas.....
Now for some exciting liquid lunch...
Chicken, Sweet Potato, Mushrooms and Parsnip Soup
Now out to enjoy the afternoon shift! 
I only put on one hat, winter coat and winter gloves goes on. Turns on my lights, and returns to sit in Sexy Beast until my friends appear.
One friend appears and we go have a rabbit in the square. We are then joined by another friend and his dog.
The time goes on, and then it's time for me to start my shift.
I say goodbye to my friends, and so I start.
Here we again.....
Refusing to stop on the otherside of the road.
Pity I haven't got a much longer big stick!
Then it's stopping in the Keep Clear space.
I was offered free milk by one of the houseowners on the otherside of the road.
"Yes Please!" I say.
Finished in one piece.
Collected my free milk and back to Sexy Beast.
Back home I go.
Now for a cup of brew.
I put the multi-coloured pasta in a saucepan of  boiling water.
Once that was done, added the homemade tomato sauce, gave it a big stir.
Hubby came home and a had a big sloppy one 😘
Tea was served up.
Everyone ate their's \o/
