I do hope you're all well and that the sun has been shining on your day.
We're fairweather car booters and we were grateful for this morning's pleasant weather to indulge in one of our favourite Saturday morning pastimes. Well. One of those which can be divulged before the watershed at least! Fnar fnar.
My friend came with us today so we were able to travel up there in (free) style. I'm not sure whether any of you recall my rant about car boot parking a couple of weeks ago, but today, to add insult - I found out that the car parking on site is actually FREE and not 50p per parking space as I had originally imagined - so there's even less excuse to park on the road. But as usual the one horse road was still lined chockablock with vehicles! Gah!
Ah anyway - car booty bargains today comprise as follows:-
Couldn't resist this chicken!! *snigger*
Aw - she was only 50p. How could I leave her there?!
More candle holders!!! I can't resist!! This is another Partylite product - the iced crystal trio. I sold these by the bucket load during my time as a consultant at an eyepopping £28.00 for the three!! My kit sample got damaged in transit a long time ago and I was delighted to find this perfect set today for a rather more modest £1.50!! They are the best votive holders I've ever used. As I only usually burn Partylite candles then I know their votives fit these holders perfectly. I'm burning spiced plum votives this evening - they're divine and just these three are scenting the whole of the house. I love how these candles liquefy as they burn - they're beginning to look like rose wine with a flame on top! Yum!!!
We got home at around 12ish so whilst Mr B went to bed (he'd not slept since coming off his night shift early this morning) I sat in the garden reading my new recipe book and adding a line to my ripple blanket. I was quite industrious! Charlie, however, decided that it was all too much for him.
Raspberry and white chocolate muffins followed. I also used my new cookery book's recipe for a Victoria Sponge. This is theirs.................
We're settling down now to a nice relaxing evening watching Rammstein in concert then Saw II.
Yay!! How rock and roll are we eh?! hehehehehe....
See you very soon!!
