Beautiful morning – blue sky, sunshine – but bloody cold. Cat woke us at 4 am with more Saturday night shenanigans involving a mouse, which we had to rescue and return to the garden. Not much sleep after that.
We’re having a lovely weekend here – for once Ashley didn’t have to work yesterday, and we had a morning out in Exeter, which was nice. Our planned walk along the canal (to the pub, obviously!) was scuppered by the weather, but it didn’t really matter as we found plenty to keep us amused. Friday night we dined at Wetherspoon’s (£18 for two starters, three main courses and drinks – total bargain!), though we missed the friends were usually go with as they were otherwise engaged.
Will goes back to school on Wednesday, so only a couple more days of lazy mornings, and I’m planning to make the most of them, particularly after this morning’s early start!
Here are today’s car boot sale purchases:
Wooden Cluedo game, Will’s been wanting to play Cluedo for ages, so I was really pleased to get this for only £2 – hopefully I can drag him away from the Xbox to actually play it!
And a stick blender (which works – I’ve checked it) for 50p. Mine died a few months ago, and I hadn’t got round to buying a new one, so was delighted with this bargain.
Really pretty H&M dress (brand new) for £1.
Fab shoes this week – gorgeous patent pale pink Aldo platforms, Jones snakeskin ballet flats and Kurt Geiger brown wedges – just £1 each!
A really useful storage basket which will be used for some of my make-up – 20p.
And Geox kids’ trainers in beautiful condition – £1.
Plus size Ann Harvey ladies linen trousers £1, pink baby Nike trainers 50p.
Gents Havaianas, hardly worn – lady wanted £5 for these, but I eventually paid £1.50! Whoop!
River Island leather sandals, which might just have my name on them! £1.
A successful morning’s shopping, all in all. Quiet day here, I think – William has just woken up with a nasty sore throat and all his glands up, so have dosed him up with paracetamol and he’s gone back to sleep. Ashley is in bed watching the Grand Prix. I’m going to put some laundry on, and then do some eBay listing, accompanied by a vegetarian sausage sandwich, as I failed to buy any meat sausages when I was out shopping yesterday.
Happy Sunday, one and all! x
