Freaky Friday

It was Freaky Friday at Midland Chandlers which meant there should be bargains to be had, with the promise of 20% discounts a Mondeo full of boaters left the marina for MC's Penkridge warehouse.

I was going for a looksey not really needing anything in particular, but I had that nagging feeling I would miss out on a cheap gem if I didn't go along. I walked up and down all the aisles more than a few times perusing the shiny bits to find a discounted pearl.

Tempting as a new automatic bilge pump was I left it on the shelf, we had discussed about getting a freezer installed but this needs some more thought. On the last shelf of the store I spied a 19" LED. TV/DVD player, we'd been thinking about replacing the one in the bedroom as the picture on it is poor, a quick check on the internet to make sure it was a real bargain and it was in the boot. We stopped off at the Greyhound for a pasty & pint on the way back to the marina.

 Saturday
Our daughter and friend stopped off on their way down south from the Isle of Man ferry at Heysham, arrived at 02:00 leaving at 12:30 after a sleep and some breakfast. They were off to a Bob Dylan concert at the Royal Albert Hall -  didn't realise youngster were into his music. Interestingly Bob started this 'Never Ending Tour' in 1988 when he was just a youngster aged 47.

Watched the NZ v Sth Africa game on TV during the afternoon, a great game with a narrow victory for the All Blacks 18-20.


Sunday - Had the stove lit first thing, chilly start to the day with temperatures not expected to reach double figures. Did some brass polishing before settling down to the rugby semi-final- the Wallabies proved too smart for the Pumas during their 15-29 win.
