Good morning to you
Today first thing after taking Miss V to school I had to drop the car to the garage. Its supposed to red but its gradually turning pink much to Mr V's annoyance. So its having a polish with some special stuff to hopefully bring the colour back. Walking back to the 'village' shops was lovely , along the River Erme with the bluebells out, very pleasant.
Next I met my good friend Cathy for coffee, we have met for a coffee almost every Thursday morning since our kids were tiny babies (they're nearly eight now!)
Next I popped in to the charity shop next door to the cafe not expecting much but you never know...
I bought all these things to sell on (hopefully!)
A Karen Millen skirt (crikey!)
Some baby coat hangers
A full Brownies uniform
For me, a small bag of wool and a wooden coat hanger - I am gradually replacing my horrid plastic hangers with vintage wooden ones. Mostly I only pay about 10p each and they should last forever. I love the ones with hotel names on. Todays is Royal Pier Hotel Weston Super Mare. One of my favourites is from Monte Carlo. I love to think about their history and what tales they could tell .
You probably think I am mad or sad but I like them !
What a good result
Next job was to post the little giveaway parcel to DosieRosie
