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.
Dressed.
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!!!
Grrrrrrrrr
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.
I had a chat.
Then off home to unload the plants we bought earlier...
Then out in Sexy Beast.
Checks the tyres.
Fills up.
Now to visit the garden centre for bits and pieces.
Once loaded up Sexy Beast.
It was dinner time! 
Yum!
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 the 3 to 2 plug adapter had arrived.
Now to see if the Singer Sewing Machine from 1938 actually works!
At least the light works!
Now to move the lever....
It works!
Woo hoo!
I will have some fun trying it again!
Puts it back in it's case.
Time for a quick look in the newspaper.

Nice brew with warm hug.

So much washing to do from the holiday...
Washing machine goes on....
Chores were handed out...
Now out for a little ride in Sexy Beast. 
Time to pump up the tyres....
Then off to town ...

I exchanged a dress for a smaller size.
Bumped into a friend from my working for Royal Mail. Had a yak.
Picked up a coffee on the way back to Sexy Beast.
Much better view of the ring road...
Goes to see my mum and dad.
No one had been up since I last went.
Removed the dead flowers one of those brothers left on the grave for my dad's Birthday.
Tidied up a bit...
Then the rain came down!
Said goodbye to my parents...
Off to have a quick look in Sainsburys...
I found another Kenny...

I picked up my clothes order which was delivered elsewhere and I should have received it on the Friday before going away on holiday!
Oh well, at least I got it!
Back home...

Banana Time!
All the windmills went in the garden!
Now for a late lunch....
I have missed salads so much!
Once ate our lunch.
Now to check hubby's car tyres...

Back home to see what I go in the Lucky bag!
Now to drag the kids out for a little walk while the sun is still shining!

Then back home to start on the tea....
While that was cooking in the oven.
We caught up on two weeks of Hotel Inspector.
Tea was ready...
Lovely!
Then off to get two lucky bags from Morrisons.
My neighbour had the yum yums.
There was a new documentary about Jimmy Saville...
