Hi Thank you for visiting my blog. My name is Sue and I live with my lovely husband who I will call Mr V and our nine year old daughter Miss V in a small town in South Devon. Everyone who lives here talks about it as The Village so that will be my blog name- Vintage fron the Village Also in our family are two cats, two guinea pigs some tropical fish and a pond with goldfish I have always loved making things and love pretty vintage things which I hope to sell as well to fund my passion! I am addicted to buying fabric,ribbons, buttons,wool etc and love to visit charity shops and car boot sales.I love glasses of wine, gardening, crochet (easy stuff!) and I am a big E-Bay fan ! I also love to read other people's blogs which inspired me to start my own. I look foward to hearing from you Best wishes Sue

Just another manic Monday .......

Hello to you, I think I may have used this picture some time ago on a post but it seems quite suitable !
After quite a pleasant weekend , it was a busy and expensive day today

7.15 am - phone rings to say new washing machine is on its way in the next 20 mins !
have very quick shower and make Mr V's sandwiches

7.40 am - washing machine arrives and old one gets removed. This is all a good thing as I have not been able to do any washing for a week and since Mr V had to unplumb the old one yesterday it was in the middle of the kitchen floor while I was trying to cook a roast yesterday.
If you have seen the size of my kitchen you will know that must have been fun !

Meanwhile Miss V comes down and is all very interested in the goings on and with the other hand I am seeing Mr V off to his new job which he started today

8.40 am - walk Miss V to school - phew. New washing machine replaces old one in the middle of kitchen floor all day while waiting for Mr V to come home and plumb it in !

A bit later on, garage rings to say a tow truck is on its way to take away the car (thank goodness we have 2 ) this a drama carrying on from last week -  the battery appears to be flat and jump leads didn't work.
Garage rings to say the alternator is broken and this will be a lot more than a battery !

Luckily we live within walking distance of Miss V's school and the post office and shops, so off I trotted with my Ebay pile.
Popped in the charity shops on the way home, one of them had a new rail in the centre full of clothes, didn't look on it as one of the mums from school was in there ! While walking past on the way to the bric a brac rack the rail collapsed and broke and about 30 items of clothing fell onto me ! Was a flimsy rail completly overloaded but a bit embarrassing !

Anyway the new washing machine is on and all seems fine- still in the middle of kitched just in case there are any leaks !!!

Right then after all that I am now hopefully going to make a start on listing the crochet patterns for half an hour before bed

Hope your day ran a bit more smoothly and cheaply !

Love Sue x


  1. what a lovely post, hoping you have some time to relax :)

  2. Wow -- what a terrible day!! Mine was a dream in comparison. Home all day - 5 apple pies in the freezer and a French Apple Tart for DMIL's 80th birthday on Saturday. Hope tomorrow is better and cheaper
    Kindest Regards Linda

  3. LOL!!!! Sorry, I had to laugh! Hope tomorrow is better for you. Full of washing no doubt! xxx

  4. Hello Sue, I am still laughing about the clothes rack. Shouldn't really. What a day for you, sometimes things always happen at once don't they..and I know what you mean by expensive. Hope it gets better for you.

  5. What a day, time for a rest and a glass of something I think.
