We go down the escalator to pay a visit to another Charity shop.

The Escalator going up was broke.
Ran to the lift, and we had to keep the door open to let 3 more people in.

It Works \o/

More always means worse - Kingsley Amis
 Welcome to my Sunday 💗
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.
Then off to enjoy some coffee!
Bought some rubble bags.
Now off to see my mum and dad.

Once loaded up Sexy Beast.

Now back home to unload Sexy Beast! 
Unloaded the car.
Kids had filled the rubble bags up with old wood and branches from the trees, hubby had cut off.
Now Hubby and younger son loaded up his car, and took the all the rubble bags off to the Household tip.
I meanwhile had watered the plants in the garden!
When he got back, we had a little ride to get some Lucky bags from Droitwich!
That was tea sorted.

Now to see if the Singer Sewing Machine from 1938 actually works!
At least the light works!
