Breaking In The New Duvet Cover......

It is by acts and not by ideas that people live - Anatole France.
Welcome to my Saturday๐Ÿฟ
We had a tiny lie-in.
Followed by brew and hug↓
 Breakfast.
Dressed.
Off for a quick ride to town↓
 We parked in Car Park 7
(As Car Park 4 was still closed)
 
  We put on our face masks.
I wore the one I made yesterday.

We get the newspaper from WHSmiths.
Body Shop is now closed in the shopping centre!
I gets two lovely balloons 
(And they are blown up too)
On the way to get a much needed Costa Coffee.
I see a ex-boyfriend sitting down in Costa Coffee.He had took his mask off and I recognised him straight away...
I went out with him in 2000.
He is nicknamed "The Creature" as he put my hamster down the toilet out of spite, when I rewound a video he hadn't finished watching.
When I finished work, I found the poor hamster in the toilet, I carefully gave him a wash, and dried him off. The poor thing sadly died a few days later....I hope Karma visits him after 20 years..... 
I had my mask on, he kept looking at me stood over by the exit, I just turned my head.
We walked back to the car park, to drink our coffee.
 It is still getting warm↓
 I put the new balloons on my parent's grave↓
  My younger brother has bought a bench to sit on opposite their grave↓↓
 We sat on it for a good half an hour.
Nice view of the grave from there↓
 Those clouds coming over↑
Off to the Farm Shop to get more Lavender!
 Gets home.
Repots all the lavender around the garden.
Light lunch in the garden↓
 Watered all the plants as they needed it!

Get's yesterday's blog wrote as well.
Picks up next door's shopping list.
 Back out we go...
After Lidl shopping.

Back home.
I deliver next door's shopping to him.
Then unpack ours.
While tea is cooking...
We put a new duvet cover on our bed!

Balls Or Tyres!

It was a mixed marriage.I'm human, he was a Klingon - Carol Leifer

I enjoyed a snuggle and a cup of tea in bed.
 Even the sun was out :)

 Together on Graham’s sofa this week: Arnold Schwarzenegger and Linda Hamilton discuss reuniting for Terminator: Dark Fate, and Debbie Harry and Nadiya Hussain talk about their new autobiographies. With music from DJ Spoony's Garage Classical featuring The Sugababes.
The Plumber arrived...
We had a laugh especially when he asked "Who broke the cooker this time?
"The same person who broke the last one, 9 months ago!"
Then I commented to him.
"If it has balls or tyres you will have problems!"
He replied, "I have problems with both!"
 All fitted in!
Now to use it....
Nice bit of Pork Curry to give us some warmth!
 
 There were 4 empty plates.
Everyone liked it \o/
