I'm afraid I'm a day late posting this, I had the photos all loaded on last night but I was so tired that my brain refused to think of any words to type. So I left it and went to bed. I would have done it this morning but I was at craft today and me poor wee brain was focused on curtains for my newly decorated dressing room. I was going to show the room so far, but I'm so close to it being finished that I'm going to make you wait a few more days. There are still some finishing touches left to do on our bedroom too, so hopefully the big reveal isn't too far away.
Back to Suesday, if you thought I was in early last week then you'd fall over if you knew how early I was in yesterday...just after 9am, even herself wasn't ready for me, she still had her face to put on!
We reckoned we were due a trip to the dump shop and its better to be there early to get the best stuff.
Plate $1, teacup, saucer and tea plate $1.50 china dish $1.50
Next stop was Frankton, we gave the Red Cross a miss, but at St Vincents I found:
Book $3, cross stitch framed pic $5, sheet $3, wool blanket $3
Assorted embroidered linen, check out the butterfly shaped one!
We whizzed around the corner to Save Mart and I found
another wool blanket $3.99, cupcake coasters 99c
Next it was time for my weekly weigh in at Jenny Craig, Sue came in with me today and much hilarity was to be had, people wanted to know what we had all been up to in our room, we told 'em we'd had the wine out and we were partaying!
This weeks loss 1.1kgs Total loss so far 9.6kgs
just 400gms to go and I've reached 10kgs (22lbs/1 1/2 stone approx)
Nearly halfway there!
The Salvation Army store is just up the road so that was the next port of call
Jug $1, plate $1, bag $10..pricey but gorgeous!
After Sue's smutty joke telling to the staff (I've promised to tell one next week) and posing in the display window and not one person noticing (I was obviously a very good dummy) I was gagging for a cuppa so we went into a place across the road where they serve tea in the loveliest of teacups, Sue shouted lunch whilst we were there and very nice it was too, thanks Sue ♥
It was about this time whilst supping that I managed to totally bypass my mouth and got tea everywhere! I know wot yer finking...how'd she miss that gob?? Well it was talking 20 to the dozen at the time and obviously I got the timing wrong...it happens ya know!! Sheesh!
After lunch it was the turn of the SPCA shop in Dinsdale and it produced....
Jug $2, pattern 50c, lace 50c
Turn left out of Dinsdale shop car park, turn right into Newcastle Road, take the 3rd left, then right at the roundabout and keep on til morning..(oops sorry Peter Pan moment) and you arrive at Grandview's Salvation army Store, always something to be had here...
Table $5, Watercolour $9, linen 50c each
Reminds me of the Shambles in York
We finished in Habitat for Humanity and we must have got there too late in the day, I found a pillow case for 50c and I only got it for the pom poms!
This dog was the size of a Hamster...well maybe not quite that small,
I reckoned he would fit in me handbag
but his owner didn't look too keen to try!
And here we are in all our gloriarseness!
The only thing bought new that I had on were me boots and undies
and I figured ya didn't wanna see me undies...
Until next time when who knows what news I'll have for ya! :D
Stay turned, same time, same channel!
