I always look forward to Friday's - I have done since I was a child. Even now I'm no longer working there's something special about Fridays.
The day started not brilliantly - even with 3 alarms we all were late up this morning so the despatching of boys to school was a bit hurried and frantic!
Once they'd gone on their way, I took myself off upstairs to have my 20 minutes crafting with my sewing machine. I showed you yesterday the first fabric box - well I've made 2 more and refined the technique;
The stanley one is for me :)
A phone call from a sister suggesting we meet for lunch and a mooch around the charity shops put paid to any plans for further spring cleaning! I'd decided to cycle rather than walk to meet her and had planned a photograph hungry route into town - however just after this picture was taken it started to rain so the camera was put away & all I have is this picture of my bike loaded up and ready for our ride;
Lunch was lovely - we went to a little cafe in town which serves good basic food and at a reasonable price too - cheese&tomato toastie for me - scrummy :)
We then had a wander around the town. I'm quite lucky our little town is full of small independent shops. Our florists was taken over before christmas by a wonderful lady and it is now doing a roaring trade. I couldn't resist this little hyacinth in its red pot;
The charity shops came up trumps today too - a red polka dot summer cardi for me and 2 pairs of knitting needles (both bought because of their colours rather than sizes)- total spend 70p!! Though it doesn't show it properly the grey ones have the most gorgeous green tops!!
Came home to find the postie had been kind again and brought me a parcel from a friend from another internet forum - 3 Ladybird books for my collection :)
All in all the day that started badly ended really well.
Have a good weekend - here's hoping MrSunshine puts in an appearance.
