Back to it

but only for 3 days!  Hello all - did you have a good Easter, eat plenty of chocolate, enjoy the Easter break, and more importantly relish in the glorious weather?

We did a bit of everything, sightseeing, relaxing, lots and lots of walking, enjoying time with friends and just a small amount of car booting (my first this year)!

The boot sale came up trumps for me - this stack of 9 Beryl Woods Ware plates were £1.00.  I spotted these at the end and was surprised no one had picked them up, so I dutifully obliged!

Jigsaw - 10p

Set of coloured handled knives - 50p

2 books - 10p each (my camera won't seem to upload the photo's on those so I can't show you) but 1 was an Enid Blyton book and the other a Ladybird Book - The Enormous Turnip.

Not bad heh?

Anyway, enjoy the peace for those who's children are back at school!  See you later on in the week.
