Since my last post, there was some progress on the downstairs renovations, we had an engagement announcement and visitors from the UK! So as you can imagine it's been pretty full on. Our friends are now back in the UK. They left the UK on the 16th December last year, so they're in for a shock, I think, going back to work. It was lovely to have them here. I've been doing thing with plums, nothing illegal, just preserving like a mad woman. I'll come back, I promise, and share all that soon.
In the meantime, however, I will share with you what me and the City Sue got up to today, yep, we had a Suesday! Rare as hens teeth, like blog posts lately!
So, I was woken up by Joe with a cup of tea, (boy do I seem to have problems waking up lately, too many late nights I reckon) at silly o'clock. As tempting as it was to just roll over and go back to sleep, I sat up and drank my tea with the dogs keeping me company. I knew that if I backed out of today that Sue would probably have me guts for garters, so by 9am I was on my way.
Not a good picture, it's got a halter neck style top, it looks great on.
This glass dome and board was $6.99, brand new.
It wasn't staying in the shop for that price I can tell you.
6 china tea plates, $6 total.
I think I have a matching tea cup.....
just checked, similar but not the same, doesn't matter though.
Two glass shades $4 pair, jar 50c
Cute wee stool, $2. There were 2, Sue has the other.
Shoes, comfy, nearly new we reckon, $7
Books, of course there are...ranging from $1 - $3
Set of 6 Kiwiana table mats, $6
So not a bad haul for the first time out in 2017.
Okay, so now my wine glass is empty and needs topping up, I'll leave it there for now.
I'll be back soon, honest...and in this year too!
I will just leave you with this, Sue posted this on my Facebook page.
....and on that note I will sign off and wish you all a very happy weekend
PS There's been quite a lot of this going on
