My first excursion on Saturday morning was somewhere I went last year and the year before........ the Crowfield Church Flower Festival and mini fete. Headed straight to the book tent where they sell them cheaply at 50p each or 3 for £1 and spent £2 on 6 books.
A Mary Wesley, that I've not read for me (and when I got home I found I had a copy already. -Bother! I'll pass it on to a charity shop) And the rather interesting looking Medieval Cookbook............... a British Library publication in perfect condition. It's got recipes converted for modern use and uses illustrations from books and paintings in the British Museum. I don't think it's ever been opened.
Then I went into the church.........an interesting theme for the flower arrangements................Baskets, All Shapes and Sizes.
I liked this one - Bicycle Basket titled Last Of The Summer Wine
Then I had a cuppa and a cheese scone............still plenty of boxes of books in the book tent and lots of jigsaw puzzles outside. (sugar on all the tables - not for me!)
During the rest of the day I popped over to see Son and DIL and Willow and also got organised for the next bit of work in the bedroom - skirting board and window sills.
One of the random things about this house we found when we moved in was that several bits of skirting board are not fixed to the walls, heavens know why. This has turned out to be a Good Thing as I was able to just lift out the bit of skirting board where the new bath is going and paint it to be used to fill the gap in the bedroom. Handy!
