We are, what is commonly known in the trade as a bit 'boracic lint' this week and so our planned outing to the local MCC's custom bike show was shelved in favour of pottering around at home.
We did venture up to the local car boot sale but the decidedly dodgy weather over the last few days had halved the amount of traders and the field which is usually heaving with buyers and sellers was decidedly quiet. The sun, however, did shine it's little head off for all the time we were wandering around and so it was a pleasant way to spend our early morning.
Pickings were relatively slim, however we did spy a Sex Pistols documentary dvd we had been looking for for a while, and also a couple of films. I really admire Monty Don and was pleased to pick up the collaborative book from him and his wife, Sarah, entitled 'From Fork to Fork' which is mixture of veggie gardening advice and recipes for utilising your produce.
I picked up a really good quality cotton, pretty gingham/floral single quilt cover with two matching pillow cases for three quid which I intended on cutting up to begin a patchwork quilt with. Darling daughter, however, had other ideas and snaffled it as soon as she saw it. The patchwork may have to wait!
Saturday evening was beautiful. We decided to take a walk over the fields at around 7 and the light was stunningly beautiful. I love that time during a mid-summer evening where everything is bathed in golden light. My camera really is on it's last legs now and I'm having to hold the battery in with my thumb when I take a photo so these aren't as clear as I'd like. I'll stop waffling now and let you enjoy the scenery! Hope your weekend was a good one too! xx
