We didn't know we had until the Auction House sent us a note to say they held them back from the huge agricultural and machinery sale at the end of May. Colin had forgotten that he'd found them in the workshop - they were left behind by Mrs F - and had loaded them onto the trailers just to get them out of the way. Guide price............not a lot.........but every little helps.
We thought we'd go over to the Friday afternoon viewing and as always things that look interesting in the catalogue turn out to be mostly junk.
(By the way these photo's are extra exciting - because I took them with a camera ON MY NEW PHONE! Good grief. After donkey's year with a teeny old phone that just let me phone and text people. Now I'm really with it!
My little camera had developed a spot on the lens and my old phone no longer held it's charge so my solution was to get a new cheap phone that does exciting things......probably!
I had to have youngest daughter set it up for me, but then I found I couldn't transfer pics from phone to lap top so when eldest daughter was here she found out why and put it right.
I could really do with a live in phone/computer expert!)
Anyway, back to the sale................ this looked fun...........an old Bakers delivery van ...........sorry about the blur, still struggling with the phone camera!
This would have been brilliant for selling stuff out the front of the smallholding!
Wonder where these Victorian jigsaw puzzles and games had been for 120+ years?
Just down the road from the sale yard is a village shop selling '99s (whippy ice-creams with chocolate flake for those of you from foreign parts!) so we stopped on the way home and had one each...............it would have been rude not to.
|Photo from Google - ours were eaten too quickly to take a photo!|
Day 6 of the painting and the end is nigh! One wall left to have 2 coats on the walls and one more on the coving plus the skirting boards on one and a bit walls. Then I'll need to search for new curtains as the ones that were here, and I intended to put back, still look grubby and tatty even after washing.
Back in a jiffy or Monday
