Back to the car.
Off to Worcester we go to watch a great play.
We park by the Racecourse.
Quick lunch.
Now to go to the theatre.

I last saw this play in 1998 at the Redditch Palace Theatre. Was so funny!
It is still funny!
If you get chance to see it, SEE IT!
Back to the car.
Back home we go.
Once home, we unpacked our bargains.
Back out in Sexy Beast to check the tyres. 
 I dropped off the bags of wool in a porch of the secret club of knitters.....

Road Trip to Bewdley

When all else fails, and the instructions are missing - kick it - Anon
Welcome to my Sunday Road Trip 🚗
Little bit of a lie in....
Then it was Breakfast and Brew.
Time for the thermal vest to go on....
Road trip time...
We went past West Midlands Safari Park↓
We got to Bewdley.
Now for a look around!
Time to look in the Charity Shop.

Don't Tempt me!
Some nice things in there↑↑
Now to enjoy some coffee and nibble↑↑

Now onto lunch...
Mmmmm lovely.
Full up, so I didn't have a dessert.
Hubby found room for one ;)
Now back to do a bit of shopping in Morrisons.
Private Eye Magazine front cover↓
Popped around to see my late father-in-law's house for the last time.
Back garden.
The view from the back bedroom.
The views from the Attic window.
Then time to get home....
Nice cup of tea...
Unpacked all my Charity Shop bargains↓
Quick look into today's newspaper before tea.

We had a lovely tea of Smoked Salmon on crackers :)
On Social Media, I discovered this↓
 Sometimes when I'm sad that I left my now ex-partner and our marriage because they cheated on me with the person they are now with, I go on Amazon and read that person's one star reviews of the books they wrote. It always cheers me up.
My response to it was:
Your ex-wife is probably a lot happier now with her new partner. Assuming you didn't satisfy her needs...
(Sounds a bit too close to home considering I had one star for one of books as well↓↓)
Sleep  Tea Time.
Back on the Wobbly Work Wheel 🎡 tomorrow.
