I'm back! - I didn't think I would be away for more than a week but never mind. Thanks for all your lovely comments about my disastrous week I had, they were all really appreciated.
Last week was half term, so I thought it would be a good chance for a bit of R & R.........
We still had ongoing issues with Comet who, after 3 attempts still didn't rearrange the installation of our new Range. However, they did take the money for it and had the audacity when we asked for the refund to not refund all of it. It's now in the hands of the credit card company.
We ended up getting a chap who lives local to us, to fit it, and indeed charged us less than Comet did. He, whilst installing it, recounted lots of horror stories involving Comet, so it's a company I will not be using again.
Here's the newbie anyway, and I'm mighty pleased with it.
Half term was a flurry of activities, most of which I couldn't keep up with. We did take a trip to the big smoke and went to the British Museum, one I had never been to before, and what a fantastic place it was too. I forgot to take my camera so no photo's I'm afraid. It's great that we can visit the capital and take the opportunity of going to so many free museums, housed in such fantastic buildings.
As the boys' are looking at Egyptians at school, it was a good opportunity to go to the Egyptian room where the 'mummies' were housed. It's incredible that after all these years we are able to look at what the Egyptians did.
By the end of the week, I was pooped, so I thought why not take a trip to the Vintage fair in Frome for a bit of retail therapy - always good for the soul! It was extremely busy, but a great atmosphere with vintage music playing in the background.
I did resist a lot of things, but came away with Mrs Eiderdown (I did pick it up, put it down, walk away twice). Excuse the poor photo's - this weather is not conducive to good photo's!
I also added to my Practical Household magazine collection - this one is a Christmas issue so I'm looking forward to having a good read of it.
I love this vase with it's green lid.
This little plastic basket is so pretty. I've got nowhere to put it so will have to do some juggling around of a few bits this week I think!
Lastly, a dog book end which will look lovely propping up some old Enid Blyton books.
I hope everyone gets off to a good start this week. I'm craving for some normality, and more importantly, catching up on everyone's blogs!
See you in the week.
