Pool Time!

If you have to ask the price, you can't afford it - J.P. Morgan
Welcome to my warm Saturday 😎
The sun is back once more....
Time for a bit of guess the intro...
Heardle 60s:
My son's answers ↓↓
Brew with Breakfast.
Hubby was going to do the food shopping with younger son who is doing our next door's neighbour's shopping.
Hubby is also dropping the other son off at work.
Time to go for a little ride in Sexy Beast
Gives hubby a sloppy wet one 💋
First stop was to visit the Charity Shop.
Loads of bargains and yak!
Then into Co-op.
I had £4 off £40 to spend.
Got all the things I need for lunch this week.
Back home.
Puts on the coffee machine.
Unpacks all my bargains I got from the Charity Shop.
Unloaded the dishwasher.
Loads it back up.
Now outside to try out the new sunhat and fan.
With coffee.
Hubby comes back.
He has a sloppy wet one 💋
He puts the shopping away.
Then we go back out in Sexy Beast. 
Check tyre pressures.
It didn't help I lost one of pink tyre cap!
Disappeared into thin air!
Next stop....
While I was paying for my things at the till.
A old friend of my late mum's said to me:
"You won't be wanting them in this heat Sandra?"
I finished paying collected my things and left.
She must be getting confused with me and my late mum!
Now off to visit my late mum and dad.
Popped into see Joe and Tracy.
Back home.
Light lunch.
Parasol and Pool time!
Hubby fetched two lucky bags.
They went with the kids and our tea.
Now to look into 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.
