Reached The Big Number 5!

All happiness depends on courage and work - Honore De Balzac
Welcome aboard my small Wobbly Work Wheel 🎡
 I enjoyed tea and hugs in bed↓
I gave hubby a big sloppy 💋 before he left the house.
I got up to put all the things away from what I bought on our holiday to Blackpool.
*This blog is now Five years old!!!!*
 Thank you to everyone for reading it!
Once kids were up.
We went out the house...
 Big big sunglasses time!
The temperature is going ↗↗↗↗
 I gets the newspaper↓
 First stop is Aldi
 They had loads of paint I wanted.
(They didn't have none left in the Bromsgrove Aldi yesterday)
The assistant said."There isn't a high demand for that paint here in Redditch, unlike in Bromsgrove!"
Then into Poundstretchers for some bits.
Unload the things in Sexy Beast.

Visiting Old Friends!

I have been waiting for you for six long days”
Charmaine J Forde 

At last we reach Saturday!
I missed "The Sounds of the 60s"
We had tea in bed.  
 The sunshine is out at last.
 We visit B&M bargains to get some bits.
I price up the tins of paint.
 I pop over to see some late friends↓

 I actually visited this grave for the first time, as I keep seeing it when I go pass after visiting my mum's grave↓
 I gave my mum some more flowers↓
 Blue skies \o/

 It's getting warm!
 We visit Dunelm↓

My table is looking nice :)
 The bed is covered in so much,
We ran out of time to get it off...
Our bed for tonight is:
Must not forget the earplugs!

 We went too the Range.When we got there, we saw two people trying to get a large picture and a ironing board in a Mini. The passenger was squashed in the front seat afterwards...↑↑↑
We got the paint to update our kid's bedrooms.
 Then we had a Boost↓
 We had to have another trolley, as the first trolley was rammed with bargains.
We popped into see my Father-in-law.
He was amazed on how many bargains we got...
He replied:
