Lots of people selling and buying and I found these............
The plastic food box and the roll of baking parchment cost me 20p, fished out of one of dozens of boxes of house clearance stuff. From the boxes I also found an oven glove with matching word-burner door/pan holder which were 50p and the pink flowery thing new from Hobbycraft is a needlework kit with scissors for £1, it will be ideal for when I have to provide a prize for the WI draw.
The two hanging baskets were 50p each. I've got these so I can use the seeds of trailing tomatoes that came with the fruit bargain pack. 3 more toys for Willow were £1. There are a couple of sticker craft things to put away for when the grandchildren are older, they were £1 each as was the Red and Black brand new accounts book (£7.99 label on the back). Total spend £6.70.
Listening to the people who were selling the boxes of house clearance stuff really made me glad that I have started to clear things from the house already. She was telling someone there were 7 full transit vans cleared from the house and that didn't include any furniture and white goods!
The boot sale plus swimming, charity shop and visiting youngest daughter and Florence meant that I was in and out and driving about all week so I was glad to stay at home on Friday when my sister and BIL visited for a coffee.
It looks as if we are in for a rough wet and windy weekend - March coming in like a lion? The vegetable beds are actually really dry so we need any rain we get.
This week I am grateful for
- Son, Daughter in Law and Willow visiting and bringing lunch to cook here too
- A very quiet swimming pool to do lots of lengths
- Dry weather to finish clearing the veg beds
- A gift of onion sets from my sister, enough for a row across the bed - very handy.
Hope you all have a good weekend
