Car boot season is well underway and it was time to find some bits and bobs for 3rd grandchild due in April.
At a car-boot last month I struck lucky and found someone with a box-full of toys for babies and picked up 7 things for £3.....all washable so will be good first toys. Then at last I found a doll for Florence - been looking for something suitable for months but so many at boot sales are old, tatty and dirty. This nice clean and tidy doll, with newly knitted clothes was £4.
Also bought a ceramic dish for 50p to replace an old pyrex one with a chip plus a pack of 6 large Christmas badges for 75p. I think they will be good for Christmas cards for Grandchildren in few years time.
Then I found a "mystery" plastic bag full of notebooks, writing paper and cards for 50p.
When I got it home and looked at it properly it turned out to have all this lot inside
Yes, a good 50p worth, some cards I may not use but the notebooks will be good for grandchildren in a while and writing paper for me, buried under the heap is a pack of blue-tac and some sticky labels too.
Addenbrookes hospital on a Sunday is a much quieter place than on a weekday and it was an easy drive there and back too. Col has had the blood test etc that we couldn't get there to get done last week. Much less snow over in Cambridgeshire than we had had here. It will take a day or two of milder weather to melt away some of the huge heaps on the sides of the road near us where a digger has cleared the road. Around us the green-ness is back, the dwarf irises buried under 6 inches of snow have reappeared looking none the worse for it.
Hopefully our new neighbours should get the rest of their furniture and possessions delivered today.
Thank you for Saturday comments
