Goes In With A Basket....

Biologically speaking, if something bites you, it is more likely to be female - Desmond Morris.
Welcome to my Sunday 💓
We got up early to have breakfast out.
Where has the sun gone?
I didn't have the fried breakfast.
Everyone did. 
The kids went for free.
I chatted with the waitress when I paid for the Breakfast. She commented when she was working through Covid Lockdown at another pub.
One man wouldn't give his details for Track and Trace and threated to slap her is he wasn't allowed in. She said he was on camera and the Police be called if he raises his hand to her.
He suddenly left after that.
I said,"You have more patience than me!"
Then off to see my mum and dad.
Dropped the kids back home.
We went back out.
Hope it isn't going to rain!
Robin came in to look at the Bird food section.
Got all the bits what I wanted.
Going to pop next door to the other Garden Centre.
Goes in with a basket, and to change it for a trolley instead!
Gets home.
Unpacks all the things I got.
Coffee time.
We did the Heardles before we started on the garden.
Heardle 60s:
My son's answers:
Potted all the plants in the garden.
Hubby added some jam to the wasp catchers, we hung them up in the Plum Tree.
Once finished.
We had a light tea.
Now for more telly watching..
then onto Talking Pictures...
Next up...
Really good film!
Quick look into today's newspaper.

It Works \o/

More always means worse - Kingsley Amis
 Welcome to my Sunday 💗
Warm hug with brew.
I jumped into the hot shower before breakfast.
Now out early before the rush starts...
We go again to Stratford Car Boot.
There is only about 12 car booters here.
I made full use of the man selling plants.
Had a little yak like you have to!
I got some bargains!
Loads up the car.
Someone was giving away free pallet on Facebook market place.
Went to see it and try and get it in the car!
No such luck!
It was too big!!!
Off to town for hubby to pick up his new glasses.
Parks in Car Park 4.
He picks up his new glasses.
Then we go and have a look about.
Then off to enjoy some coffee!
Bought some rubble bags.
Now off to see my mum and dad.
I had a chat.
Then off home to unload the plants we bought earlier...
Then out in Sexy Beast.
Checks the tyres.
Fills up.
Now to visit the garden centre for bits and pieces.
Once loaded up Sexy Beast.
It was dinner time! 
Now back home to unload Sexy Beast! 
Unloaded the car.
Kids had filled the rubble bags up with old wood and branches from the trees, hubby had cut off.
Now Hubby and younger son loaded up his car, and took the all the rubble bags off to the Household tip.
I meanwhile had watered the plants in the garden!
When he got back, we had a little ride to get some Lucky bags from Droitwich!
That was tea sorted.
Now the 3 to 2 plug adapter had arrived.
Now to see if the Singer Sewing Machine from 1938 actually works!
At least the light works!
Now to move the lever....
It works!
Woo hoo!
I will have some fun trying it again!
Puts it back in it's case.
Time for a quick look in the newspaper.
