In one charity shop I found four books** and two packs of curious craft stuff *, (do I need books and craft stuff? er................. no but yes)
but then forgot to go back to the charity shop that wasn't open when I arrived, the one that is jam-packed full of bits and bobs! Bother.
Got home and found a couple of things that were on offer in Tesco had gone through the till at full price - so annoying and then remembered what it was that I'd forgotten which wasn't on the list. Bother again
Also found the £1 off voucher I should have handed in for cat food I bought. - Hopeless!
Oh well, it's a new week and maybe I'll get myself organised.
The afternoon was better as Son and DIL popped round with Willow, 4 months old next week and such a cutie.
There is so much stuff in the workshop that needs sorting, I want to get the garage done to make room for the things that need keeping they'll then be moved there from the workshop.
Didn't bother with boot sale on Sunday as it was spitting with rain first thing although we didn't actually have any proper rain until much later. I put a few more plum tomatoes into the freezer - I'm collecting them a few at a time until I've got enough for my favourite Red Hot Relish. Also a couple of peppers added to the freezer bag. Finished sanding down the bedroom walls and ceiling. Sundays tidying was finding £20 worth of books to go off to Ziffit and a couple of bits of old junk from the garage into the bin.
*When I opened them I found the curious craft packs are 3D decoupage sheets for making Huge A4 greetings cards. 2 for Christmas and 2 others. Bit big for posting!.
** I'm pleased with the books as The History of Stowmarket is a facsimile re-print of a very old book from the C19 full of fascinating information. We had a re-bound copy of the original when I worked in Stowmarket Library, but it wasn't allowed out of the library. I've never seen The History of Ipswich book so that will be interesting to look at. The crime novel by Cyril Hare is a reprint from the 1950s and co-incidentally I have just read one of the two of his books I have from the library. I'm not sure what the Georgette Heyer Christmas mystery will be like, it was originally published in 1941.
