Name That Tune!

The difference between light and hard is you can sleep with a light on - Anon
Welcome to my Sunday 🚧
Nice hug to start Sunday with.
Brew with breakfast.
Got up the kids.....
Hubby went and got a car full from the Storage Unit.
While he was doing that, I was sorting through boxes in the Dining Room.
The pile for the tip was getting bigger.
Some of the things that came from the storage unit, were put in some other boxes.
Coffee time.
One car load sorted out.
Early lunch is needed!
Found something we bought for our wedding 10 years ago.
One son put it up in the garden...
Will come in useful for next year!
Then we popped out to pick up some free food from Olio, magic bag from Morrisons, and pick up some more storage boxes from Argos.
While we put 3 bags of clothes in the recycle bank, the cardboard box bank was overflowing.
Popped into see my mum and dad.
Then back home to unpack the shopping.
One more car load from the storage unit.
Sorted through all that.
Then load up the car for the tip run, while I put the tea on.
While that was cooking, I had to write 2 blog posts.
Soon tea was ready to dish up.
Finished blog writing.
Got all the washing sorted out.
I was playing spot the intro with my youngest son, he is getting very good at it.
Husband tried it, and didn't get one song from the 1980s...
My Father-in-law is having his own full bag of magic.......
Looked at today's Birthdays...

More always means worse - Kingsley Amis

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.

Welcome to my Saturday 👯
Brew with hug.
The helicoper had returned.
We went back to bed to enjoy the warm duvet cover.
Now to get up,
Out of the house for some fresh air!
We paid a visit to my parent's grave.
The gravestone behind my parents, was returned and filled the details of the man I chattered last March before the first lockdown.
Then off to pick up some shopping.
I sat in the car while we waited.
Hubby loaded the shopping in the boot and off we went back home.
We put the shopping away.
One of my kids found a 48 year old picture of me with my late dad :)
