Well the wall to wall sunshine of earlier in the week was replaced today with blue skies/grey skies/fluffy cloud/great big black ones which threatened rain and then blue skies again! Was really windy too - at least it meant the washing got dry & aired - such an exciting life I have sometimes!!
As you all know, I have a bit of a thing about charity shops - can't walk past one and am getting pretty good at spotting something lovely buried under piles of stuff that I doubt will ever sell. The ladies in my local Church shop are getting to know me very well - even putting aside things they think I might like. Here's some of the lovelies that have been rescued by me over the past few weeks;
Easter/Spring themed linens - 4 napkins and pretty cloth.
Barge ware painted enamel mugs - not good enough to drink from but pretty enough for flowers :)
More playing cards to use as labels - these have the prettiest backs.
Another ladybird book for my growing collection - first one I've found in quite a while.
Trying to think what I've done since I last wrote - started filling in my census form - just waiting for boys to decide what they'd like to put as religion, debating between Jedi & Nintendo at the moment! Though little son did 'get married' in a Hindu ceremony yesterday! (They has an RE day at school and were visited by 6 different faiths). I've almost finished another pair of dolls. I've been losing my battle with the spiders again - I just don't want to have to add them to my census form as permanent residents in this house! Oh and I've been getting things together for the 2 swaps I'm doing and I've just realised there's another birthday coming up soon on the Birthday Swap list!!
I suppose I really ought to go back to my corner of the sofa and battle with yarn & thread then.
See you soon
