I am a bit late posting today – been here, there and everywhere and pretty busy indoors too.
Up and out early to see to the chickens – three eggs today bless them. We have torrential rain all day today, every where is water logged. Really dreadful.
We went into Attleborough today, but I couldn’t get any of the things that I wanted, so had a browse in a charity shop and actually found some bargains.
I wanted to start a stash of material for a new hobby – patchwork and also appliqué. In the charity shop I found a box with material samples – those from interior design shops. The lady emptied them all out of the counter and we had a good old sort through. I probably haven’t picked the right sort of designs, but I went for coordinating colour schemes and just pieces that I liked. The swatches were all different prices, but the lady just put the ones I chose into a bag and charged me £1.50. When I got home and cut all the prices off they added up to £7.20. I also found a pressure cooker – I have wanted one for ages, and it was nice and shiny and hardly used – it even came complete with a recipe book. That was £9.50 and I also saw an electric yoghurt maker. I have one – a different sort, like an electric flask. The one I bought is rather posh one with about 8 or 10 individual glass pots with lids on a base. I haven’t got that out of the box yet to, but it has been checked out physically and the electricity has been checked and verified. I was amazed that it was only £2.20! I also go a hand made book which is hard to describe, if I get time tomorrow I will post some photos if anyone is interested. That was £2.20 too.
When I went to pay, the lady told me that there was a half price sale on, so I paid a total of a little over £8. Not often I get a real bargain like that! It made up for not getting the other things.
Did lots of jobs about the home, then this afternoon I made a birthday card for a little friend of mine. I should have taken a photo of it for here, but it took me a couple of hours to do and I had to get to the post office to catch the collection.
Caught up with a few forums, and am about to relax the rest of the evening.
Plans for tomorrow? None at the moment – but as terrible weather is forecast then probably indoor stuff.
