Being The Singing Sensation!

 I can live for two months on a good compliment - Mark Twain
Welcome to my Saturday 💪
As normal I woke up early after having a early night.
So while drinking hot tea, we listened to "Sound of the 60's" from 6am.
The top 3 from 1962 were:
It was really raining hard outside.
We postponed the trip to Pershore and decided to visit Alcester instead.
Now to leave the house...
We collected the newspaper on the way of dropping son off at work.
Lots of surface water on the road. 
Parks in Waitrose car park.
Now onto the first Charity Shop.
On came a good sing-a-long with:
I started to sing and two men in the shop really enjoyed me singing!!!!!!!!
Hubby paid for his CDs.
I waited until the end of the song, before I left.
The men thanks me for my singing and it made their day!
"It made mine,"as I left.
Moved on further down the High Street.
One charity shop wasn't open until 10am, so we had coffee and nibble...
Nice sign by where I sat.
While we were waiting to pay. The woman paid in advance for some cocktails that was being drunk there tonight.
The price was £68.
(Special offer was 2 cocktails for £12)
Goes to two more Charity Shops....
Gets more bargains...
Now to nip into Waitrose...
Finds the zero salt stock cubes I was looking for.
Now back home.
Unloads the things I bought today.
Jars are for one son for his seashell collection.
The Red lampshade is for the other son.
I am going to make a fabric Advent Calender for Christmas...
Coffee time.
Light lunch time.
Now to watch a good film while having lunch.
Really good film 
Now to check the types of Sexy Beast.... 
Back home.
I wrote yesterday's blog post.
Then we carried on watching 2 episodes of Hell's Kitchen.
Tea Time.
Then out to get some magic bags.
When we got back, let's have a look inside.
The milk was out of date by 2 days :(

We enjoyed the number 2's of the 1970s.
Plenty of newspapers to read..

Out With The Old ,In With The...

Welcome to my Hump of the Week,
It is out with the old...
 And in with the new.....
(new plaster cast time) 
The day started off badly with me being up early, reaching for the pain killers.
The left shoulder really hurting :( 
Then back to bed for another two hours.
Time for the red hat to make appearance!
Once the kids were dropped off at school.
I had to make the grand entrance out of the house, via hopping, funky frame and wheelchair.
Forgot the thermal knickers!!!!
Got the bad leg in alright...
Dropped off the perscription first.
Nice view...
Now off to the hospital...
Hopped out of the car into a wheelchair.
Now to wait with foot up on stool..
I was seen after an hour.
They cuts off the cast...
I was expecting...↓
What was revealed was:
A non hairy leg!!
 I had a choice of 3 colours...
Red,white or blue...
(You know the colour I chose...)
The new cast was put on.
Gets wheeled back to the car.
I'm trying to get in the car via all means I can
(hop, hop and more hop)
One car driver didn't like having to wait for the empty space I was hopping in...
Gets safely in...
 Gets back home,

Puts the leg up.
Going to enjoy this Hump Day with
 coffee and plenty of rest...
