Everyone loves a bargain

Good evening

How was your day? Mine was good - loads done in the house - amazing how much mess we can make over a weekend, especially when we weren't here for one day! Had to refill the cake & biscuit tins too for packed lunches & after-school nibbles - Floss your ginger biscuits are still very popular :)

On my way to visit my sister & niece this afternoon, I nipped into the charity shops - dropped off a bag of clothes to one and picked up a fantastic bargain in another - 7 vintage ladybird books, all in brilliant condition for just 50p each!!

I already have a copy of Elves from my childhood but that is very fragile & well read - this one hardly looks like its been read at all, which I find quite sad. The others were also in brilliant condition - quite my lucky day :)

See you soon

I loved that story. Ladybird books are really the best. I remember my last day of nursery before I was to move up to Primary school and I got to choose a ladybird book from a selection on a piano. I chose The Gingerbread Man. I loved it, but my brother drew witches over every page and I cried for days! xxxxxxxxxx
