We've got new helpers now at the charity shop which makes it more interesting. I'm still doing the till most of the time as well as pricing up stuff that's been checked upstairs and brought down ready to go out. Last week some single duvet covers, pillowcases and matching curtains, suitable for little girls, went out for sale . I asked youngest daughter if they would be useful and she said yes, then I forgot to message the shop to save them for me so it was lucky they were still there this week. I also brought home another book to put away for the future for the Grandchildren's advent parcels and another Little Grey Rabbit book which I somehow seem to be collecting.
I headed west on Thursday to Bury St Edmunds to visit another church and the charity shops of course, where I picked up..............a bottle that I'll use for this years Christmas Hampers......Limoncello Liquer? One of the 2019 British Library Crime Classics and a £1's worth of tat for the spring mantel-shelf! which was looking a bit bare.
I also went to Poundland while I was in Bury and found their hanging basket liners at 2 for £1. Perfect for the baskets I got from the boot sale a couple of weeks ago ready to do the tumbling tomatoes.
This week I am grateful for
- An invitation to a delicious lunch with Son, DIL, Willow and DIL's sister.
- Much needed rain for the fruit and vegetable beds
- The first rhubarb from the garden
- Safe arrival of Eldest Daughter and (nearly 3 year old) Jacob for a weekend visit.
Many thanks for comments this week. And to everyone in the States who has rhubarb somewhere under snow...............hang on in there!
Have a lovely weekend everyone
