Five days since my last blog post and I honestly do not know where the time has gone. As usual, I seem to be busy doing nothing - except cooking and washing up with a little laundry and ironing thrown in for good measure. The local charity shops remain resolutely full of absolute tat - some of it wildly over-priced at that. Technically, the car boot season round these parts could well start up again this coming weekend - it'll all depend on the weather and how wet and boggy the boot sale fields are likely to be. I cannot wait to get back into the swing of a shiny and new boot sale season - it seems like flippin' ages since I've had a good root around in other people's cast offs and junk!! There is the added bonus of the Shenfield Scouts Mega Jumble Sale taking place on Saturday 10th March too. That jumble is always well worth going to as they have HUGE amounts of stuff for sale and I inevitably find some wonderful gems there.
I did got to a table top sale in a local village hall last Sunday. I didn't buy much but did come away with this rather nice embroidered and beaded black velvet evening bag from Accessorize, still sporting its original £22.00 price tag, for the princely sum of £2.00. Plus I got a few bits and bobs for myself and some Super Mario pyjamas and a fleece top for my nephew. Sunday was a gloriously warm and sunny day here in Essex and as the table top sale was being held at one of the villages around the Hanningfield Reservoir, P and I had a lovely leisurely stroll in the sun and sat watched the various geese and ducks waddling and flapping about on the banks of the reservoir and in the water. Sadly, I forgot to take my camera.
