To look at the lovely sewing things I bought.
Caught up with the One Hit Wonders from the 1970's we recorded from this week.
Son wanted a lift, so off I went to pick him up.
Nearly had my car took out on the Asda roundabout.
Son had left work and was walking home, I found out this when I got to his workplace.
Great!
At least I had my good CD with some big songs to listen to on the way home.
I had to reheat up my coffee!
Now for lunch!
Now to open the box...
Lots of blue language to try and thread the machine....
I had a quick play on.
Tried out the letters and numbers.
I am sewing another layer of material onto the Living Room curtains tomorrow. 
Tea time.
We watched two episodes of Hell's Kitchen.
Then we went out to collect 2 Magic Bags.
One red van was in the wrong lane on the Sainsburys Island and nearly took out my hubby's car!
Nice moon tonight.
Back home to unpack the magic bags.
Now to catch up with last night's
Have I Got New For You.
I looked into today's newspaper.
William Scott "Jack" Elam  was an American film and television actor best known for his numerous roles as villains in Western films, and later in his career, comedies (sometimes spoofing his villainous image). His most distinguishing physical quality was his misaligned eye. Before his career in acting, he took several jobs in finance and served two years in the United States Navy during World War II.
Elam performed in 73 movies and in at least 41 television series. Some of his more memorable roles are in Once Upon a Time in the West, High Noon, Support Your Local Sheriff!, and on the series The Twilight Zone and Gunsmoke.
He would have been 101 years old 🎈
"GoldenEye", 17th James Bond film, starring Pierce Brosnan for the first time and Judi Dench as M, released in 1995.

Enjoying The High Time!

Anyone could write a novel given six weeks, pen,paper, and no telephone or wife - Evelyn Waugh
 Welcome to my Saturday 🐀
This is the view from our bedroom window at 7am...
Lots of hugs and things in this comfy bed!
Then to look out of the window again for the lovely views!
On goes "The Sounds of the 60s"
Breakfast time.
Afterwards...
Shower for 2!
That's better!
Dressed.
Packs up the overnight bag.
One last look across Birmingham.
Now to go down 18 floors in the Lift.↓↓
Handed the keys in.
I did make a suggestion to leave some Method surface spray, to clean down the kitchen..
"Not allowed due to Health and Safety"I was told.
"Pity there wasn't a vaccum in the appartment, I could have hoovered the living room.....,"I said.
"We do that,"He replied.
On the way to the station,
Was a Pink bus...
Now through New Street to our platform.
(The previous train leaving)
Once our train arrives, on we go and looking at all the stations until we got to ours.
We decided to walk back.
We nipped into the Kingfisher Shopping Centre.
Bumped into my former work employee.Had a quick yak, and then off we went for the long walk home in the sunshine.
Once we did get home, got the kids up,
We had a light lunch.
Hubby and son went off for the final car journey load from the storage unit.
Empty....
I went back in the kitchen to see if the washing machine had finished...
Water all over the floor from the bottom of the washing machine!
We had been laying poison bait out for a rat that chewed in his way into our kitchen.
We tried the blue blocks, now it had started on the red blocks now.
However there was 2 red blocks that had remained untouched...
Had the rat chewed through the waste pipe to escape?
(A few years ago, we had another rat ate through the waste pipe in the kitchen , three times in a week!) 
We mopped up the water.
Cleared all the stuff from under the sink.
Hubby felt about under the sink and came some thing hard.....
DEAD RAT!
In the bag and in the bin it went.
Bleached everything and tried to get through to the Emergency repairs at the Council.
No one picking up the phone!
Everything from the storage unit was in the loft.
Hubby went and done the shopping with son who was doing the neighbour's shopping as well.
I had a blog post
 from yesterday to write! 
When they came back, we unloaded the car of the shopping.
Then back out to pick up some Magic Bags!
Now for some food for us!
Once I wrote and published yesterday's blog post.
Time to get into our own bed!
Night All x
