Flowers were coming up and looking lovely.
Said my goodbyes to my parents.

Welcome to my Weekend.
As normal, I was up far too early for a Saturday.
I left Sleeping Beauty to snore.
Downstairs I went↓
 I had tea with toast↓
 Wrote yesterday's blog.
I was listening to "The Sounds of the 60s."
The sun is back↓
 Sleeping Beauty woke up and came down to say hello.
We had warm hugs.
Got changed.
Out to to get shopping↓
 First stop was to get the newspaper from Tesco Express.
A former work mate from Royal Mail was in there. I said hello from a distance.
(I normally say morning to him when I am doing my Lollipop job🍭)
Next stop, was to see the newly installed gravestone at my parents' grave.
Oh dear, It looks like a bomb has hit it↓ 
 I put everything back the way it should↓
 Next stop was the Farm Shop.
Heard the joke about the chicken crossing the road?↓↓↓
 A man was starring at me in the car park.
I looked at him and recognised who it was.
He says "Good Morning" to me when I am doing my Lollipop job in the morning.
(He gets his newspaper, and makes a joke about the weather :))
I said to him from a distance.
"Hi, how are you?"
He laughed, and said "Morning,fine thanks."
"Nice to see you again, hoping to see you soon, when I get back to the lollipop job!" 
Next stop, was to get some meat for the week↓ 
 There was no queue outside Waitrose.
I went straight in with a newly wiped trolley↓
 Back home to unpack the shopping
 Coffee and nibble↓
 I had the message come throught to pick up the drill from Wickes↓
 We did the social distance when I had my order given to me.
"My new toy to play with!", I told the men who was waiting for their order.
Back home for a late lunch↓
  I catches up on the newspaper↓
