Just a Lucky Day

We had some things we needed to get here at Rugby so we set off early to get some tarpaulin for our cratch cover. We plan to have it all re-stitched and given some TLC, so we need to cover up the bow while we do this. We found some which hopefully will be the perfect size.
We then went and had some lunch in Frankie and Benny's where we had some vouchers giving us 50% off our main meals, we had a pizza each and it came to £9.00, our first piece of luck.
Al then went to Boots and got some cosmetics, and with that got a free gift, and when we got to the till the lady said if we put a few things through separately she could then use the voucher on that receipt to get a further discount, our second piece of luck.
We then went back to Derwent6 and ordered a few items to pick up tomorrow, and then at 7.00pm we went out into Rugby to watch the football on the big screen. We ordered the drinks and just caught happy hour, they came to £5.50, touch, and when we sat down at our empty table Al found a five pound note under her chair, our third piece of luck..
After the football we then walked over to The Merchants Inn, (Del's favourite pub,) because there is music in there on a Tuesday night.. When we arrived it wasn't who we thought it was and it turned out to be Kent Duchaine with his famous guitar Lead Bessie.
The man is a Legend in his own right and is just a fantastic Delta Blues player, and if you ever get the chance, go and see him..
To make things even better, two people had to leave there seats as we turned up so we were right at the front.. Our forth piece of luck.
We came out of the Merchant's at midnight and walked the half hour walk back to Derwent6. We had already made up the bed and fell into it with big smile's on our face's, we just could believe our luck!
