The Price Of A Balloon Keeps Going Up!

I don't fit in.I'm like the only one in a nudist colony with a duffle coat - Victoria Wood.
Welcome to my Saturday 🎈
The big bed was so lovely!
While having the first cup of tea, we did all the Heardles.
60 Heardle was:
Now to use that big shower....
I had the bill for the room.
I was charged £15 for the balloon!
(Next time I will bring my own!) 
Down for breakfast.
The view from our table.
I didn't have the cooked breakfast.
Hubby did.
After we finished,
Off to the room to collect our things.
We put them in Sexy Beast.
Now to look around the grounds.
I handed the key in.
Told the receptionist I wasn't happy on being charged £15 for one single balloon. That was the only blot on our stay.Next time I will bring my own balloon!
Now back home.
Back home to unpack the overnight bag.
Hubby went out with son to do the shopping.
I had balloon to pump up for son's 18th birthday tomorrow.
Now to sort out the bunting for the garden.
Hubby came back with younger son with the food shopping.
Unpacked it all.
Still can't get a picture on our television when using Sky :(
Will have to get someone in I suppose!
Carried on with writing the blog posts from last week!
We listened to "Sounds of the 60s" from earlier.

Nice bit of Pizza for tea.

Back To Reality!

There are two types of people: those who walk into a room and say, "Well, here I am,"and those who walk into a room and say,
"Ah, there you are." - Frederick Collins 
Welcome to my Sunday love Lie-in 💓
Made full use of that bed!
Now slip into the↓↓
Then for some....↓
Followed by↓↓
Now to use the lovely shower.....
That's better!
Nice views from our bedroom windows!
Now to go down for breakfast.
While we were waiting to seated, the woman who was well pissed last night, looked me up and down. I just returned her stare when we sat down!
Breakfast is served!
Where are the beans?????
Once I had finished my third cup of coffee.
(They used Full Fat Milk, as I was worried I had to fetch my pint of milk from my bedroom)
Back to the bedroom to pack and hear my Birthday Dedication on the radio...
As for this special Birthday of mine...
The Hawaii Five 0 Intro was playing in the back ground....
All packed up and ready to leave.
Hubby paid the bill.
We loaded up the car and went for a walk down to the pond.
Then back home we went.
Cake and balloons were ready for tomorrow.
Once we unpacked.
Back out in Sexy Beast. 
There was still queues for petrol, so I couldn't get to check my tyres.
On the way to the garden Centre,
My Birthday Request was read out again.
They played a great song...
(which is at the end of this blog post)
I got some plants for me, and some for my parent's grave.
Now for a look around...
After I got my plants, I nipped into Co-op to get some reduced veg for the soup this week.
Next onwards to see my parents.
I hope they like the daffodils I put on their grave.
Back home.
I gave my daffodils some water.
Soup maker was put on....
Coffee time.
Soup was ready!
Once the tumble drier had finished.
We sorted out the dry washing.
Not before the washing machine had to go back on again!
Hubby sorted out the tea for tonight.
I caught up with yesterday's blog post.
We had a nice Roast Chicken Dinner.
As normal I was late taking a photo of it!
My presents and cards are building up!
Everything was put back into Sexy Beast.
As it might be my Birthday, but it is also back on that Wobbly Work Wheel 🎡
We caught up with 
"Dragon's Den"
Sleep Tea.
Back to our warm bed..
Already for the Big Birthday 🎈
