I'm sure there are now more than enough cards in the card box for this years birthdays. But when I spot someone is selling nice greetings cards for pence it's difficult to resist looking through what they have.
These were the most recent find - all from one person who originally, when I asked "How Much", said "they might be £1 each....... depending! " I said if they were going to be £1 each I would be putting them back! So he sold me all 5 for £1 instead - very odd.
The owl one unfolds to make a 3D card and has a £3.95 label on the back - bargain.
At the same boot sale I got a couple of things for Middle Grandson as I'm going to be looking after him on Mondays now and again during the rest of the school term.
I think he probably has something similar already as he is the most fanatical and knowledgeable 3 year old dinosaur fan I have ever known, but they will be new for here. £2.50 for these 2 things.
There were several garden jobs that needed doing this week, - at the beginning of the week I wrote a list to spur me on
It was a bit dull and chilly yesterday, wasn't it? Fingers crossed today is nicer.ReplyDelete
I bet your garden looks a picture. xx
More sun today but the wind hasn't droppedDelete
Your Mr Three might enjoy a game of 'Which one?' - if you put all the dinosaurs in a bag (fabric or paper) and he has to feel for the one you point to. Then he places it in the correct position on the base of the puzzle. My little guy loved this game. They are such a joy - but they do take a lot of entertaining!ReplyDelete
That's a good idea for next timeDelete
HAHA, I could hear you stamping your foot here! Hope that weather comes right soon :)ReplyDelete
It's the chilly wind that's annoying me every day!Delete
Those cards were bargains. Too good an offer to pass up.ReplyDelete
I recently needed to find a birthday card for my great-neohew, turning 5 and with a love of dinosaurs. An impossible search it seems. I shall have to resort to making my own.
I've got such a box full of all sorts now - including dinosaursDelete
The cards were a bargain - well done, but what an odd reaction from the seller.ReplyDelete
No way was I going to pay £1 each - don't think he was a regular car-booterDelete
Nooo, don't stop finding them, even if you end up five years ahead of yourself you will be saving so much money. It's been beautifully sunny and warm here all week and then on the day we are going away it's cloudy and cool ... typical !!ReplyDelete
Don't think I have room to get cards for 5 years ahead! but at 20p each there's no point in not buyingDelete
I'd gladly swop you a few of our bright sunny days for a cloudy one but my husband would object.ReplyDelete
It's the cold wind I really don't like.Delete
It isn't easy to pass over pretty greetings cards, especially when they're at that bargain price.ReplyDelete
Might as well get them as long as I have room to keep themDelete
Cards are such a magnet. And you can insert your own pages to make notebooks, which a lot of people use and like as a little unexpected present.ReplyDelete
Buying some at a bargain is good as then I can afford some of the art ones from art exhibitionsDelete
I agree with Boud - cards, especially at bargain prices are irresistible.ReplyDelete
Sounds like your garden is up together , we are enjoying really beautiful weather here in west Wales - sorry to rub it in!

We have sun today but still the cold windDelete
Please can I stamp my feet as well, its 15C on the essex coast. I have taken to reading my book in the greenhouse with the door shut. It would be lovely to take off my jumperReplyDelete
For a change we've been having sunny dry weather and even warmer than Suffolk, here in S Wales.. and long may it last. We'll have been here 2 years on 6th June so you must be near to that too?ReplyDelete
Like you, I buy cards when I see something I like. My card supply is held in 3 shoe boxes that sit in the bottom drawer of a desk. I suspect, both you and I have cards for every occasion. Your grandson will have a nice surprise when he sees his new dinosaur collection. Completing all those garden chores is a job very well done. I will mow the lawns today and plant my new apple tree.ReplyDelete
I liked your to-do list and thought it could almost be arranged so it's shaped like an egg timer - a sort of poetic reminder or what's required and of time's passing. I bought some hand made cards the other week - rare for me, but they seemed so beautiful and worthy of supportReplyDelete
It is clouding up here once again. We do need some more rain so that is quite alright. However the hail can stay far away.ReplyDelete
Love those cards and our youngest son would have loved the dinosaur puzzle.
I love that owl card! You really find such nice cards.ReplyDelete
Love the cards! Can't beat the price. The owl one looks really good.ReplyDelete
I’m a sucker for really nice greetings cards! I’ve quite a collection in a box and as well as this, I can never bring myself to throw away any that I receive! I love the Owl card.ReplyDelete
BTW I’m in South Devon and it’s very warm..,but we’ve a hosepipe ban!
And I'm in Cornwall and enjoying the sunshine but still have that dratted easterly wind until late afternoon. Exhausted with all the buckets of water needed for keeping everything alive - our hosepipe ban goes on and on, until CHRISTMAS, we're warned. Yesterday I sneaked out just before dark with the hosepipe and brush to wash the mess left by local seagulls all down my newly painted white bungalow. Mucky beggars!ReplyDelete
Nice cards you found for less money. I was going to get one for my brother in law at Safeway on Friday but didn't have to time do it. My daughter and I were in there for 2 hours and then she got gas before we came home. It is a bit warm here but we have air conditioner on so it makes me cold as I am having health/allergy issues since last week. My daughter has been watering the plants outdoors lately. We watched "Mrs. Harris Goes to Paris" movie this afternoon. I am sure it was done in England and it was good to watch. Have a good week!ReplyDelete
