Another Jolly Jumble last Saturday and another car-boot sale on Sunday. We headed out to one jumble and found another on the way. All I got from the one we knew about was a new set (pair?) of nutcrackers for 20p but at the first I found the DVD of the recent film - Their Finest - for 50p and the heavy glass sundae dish also 50p, Col found a book he'd not seen for another 50p. I didn't realise Their Finest was based on the book "Their Finest Hour and a Half" by Lissa Evans which I've already read a few years ago. No wonder the film sounded vaguely familiar when it was trailed on TV earlier this year. I think John Grey might have done a review of it on his blog too.
getting to the end of car boot season at our local one and most of the
people there are just the regulars but we picked up these few useful
bits. The wooden toy with push round pegs (20p) is for Florence (I'll save that for Christmas as it's in lovely condition) as are
the board books (£1 the lot). The handy thing being that she'll have
grown out of these by the time grandchild #3 will be old enough and
they can be passed on. The box of individually wrapped Christmas candles were £1 and I'll
add a couple to the hampers and Col picked up the golf-ball
radish seeds for 50p a pack. Hope the man with boxes full of T&M
seeds will be there next week so I can take my seed list and see what
else we can get cheap.
do love picking up little things for the grandchildren just wished we
saw more of Jacob. They were due to be up from Surrey next weekend but change of
plan at J's work has put paid to that. Hope they get here before Col
goes in for the stem cell treatment. I'm pleased that we'll have 2
grandchildren in Suffolk when Son and DIL's littl'un arrives next year.
Apologies to folk who saw this post when it escaped on Sunday. I had to tether it back again, so it became "doesn't exist" and thanks for comments this week, I discovered lots of comments on the Hares post that I'd not noticed so apologies for not replying. Also Big welcome to follower 216. Hi, hope you enjoy reading.
