Camping Bed Anyone?

When a stupid man is doing something he is ashamed of, he always of, he always declaires that it is his duty - George Bernard Shaw
Welcome to my cloudy,wet Thursday.
After being on the sofa since↓
  I went back upstairs to bed,
4 hours later...
Brew and hug time↓
 I had breakfast.
I needed to go back to sleep.
(Which I did)
Hubby went and got the newspaper.
Then off to work he went
(To the living room).
I rose later on.....
Much needed coffee...↓
 Quick look into the newspaper↓

 The rain was pouring down.
I breathed in some fresh air.
Back on to the blog.....
Light lunch time↓
Let's see how hot it is in the USA↓↓↓
 Finished writing the blog.
That was published.
Just in time for 
Tea at 3 
Sorted out all my material to play with the big monster tomorrow↓
 Once hubby finished work
The tea was put in the oven...
Time for more...
 Chicken and wedges for tea↓
 It was still raining when I went to work.
Nice big tune to start work with↓
 It had thankfully stopped raining when I got back.
Snuck one more episode in....
With some sleep tea↓
 We have 244 episodes to watch before we finish the whole boxset!
Fingers crossed I don't end up sleeping on the sofa later.....
(I might get a fold up camping bed, as the sofa doesn't make for sleeping on for a long time,in for the long haul!)
At least it's Friday tomorrow🍿

Raiding The Bargains....

We visited Alcester to get some Charity Shop bargains.
We popped into six Charity shops....
Got some really good bargains.
Even popped into Waitrose for my free coffee and magazine
Got some reduced food as well ;).
Nice couple of hours out, in non-windy, dry weather  for once.
