Little H was away in North Yorkshire all last weekend (lucky boy) so Mr. H and myself decided we would roll up our sleeves and crack on with the endless list of jobs that were/are starting to stack up.
We got up early on Saturday despite having a late night on Friday as we were out celebrating a friend's 40th birthday.
Our first stop was an Autumn fair at a local church. This is one of my favourite weekend pastimes, stopping for a cuppa in the church hall and rummaging through the bric a brac and helping to swell the coffers at the same time.
We didn't leave disappointed, just feast your mince pies upon this little lot.
oh dear that doesn't sound very promising does it, never mind I like the box anyway.
what a surprise in a creepy kinda way and all this lovlieness for 50p
It doesn't stop there because just as we were about to leave I spotted something on the stage, to be honest I don't know how I could have possibly missed it.
....sadly it's still in the campervan and I haven't had chance to take a snap so I will have to leave you in suspense!!!
after a quick cuppa and a swoon over their lovely utility china it was onwards and upwards as there was paint to be purchased so off to homebase...so far so good until Mr. H suggested we make a slight detour to Rotherham.
Don't get me wrong I have been banging on about this place since I visited a few weeks ago but I hadn't planned on a detour, didn't he realise I had things to do and jobs to cross off my list. Just as I was about to protest he mentioned lunch and that was that, I was sold.
We had a lovely afternoon mooching around the charity shops then lunch before making our way to homebase for the paint.
By the time we made it home it was too late to do much so I plonked myself down with another cuppa and my hook and started yet another pile of granny squares.
I think I managed to cross one job from the list...Oh well there is always tomorrow.
