Happy Days

were celebrating hubby's birthday this weekend and taking a little jaunt to a cider farm - hubby's idea of heaven!


getting a heart racing moment spying lots of charity shops on the way to the cider farm



walking in and actually feeling mighty pleased at the 'rich' pickings on offer




and even more heart skiperty skip moments when I spied beautiful coloured cutlery at only 15p a piece



eating a freshly made pear, chocolate and hazelnut cake



finishing off a couple of WIP's

Enjoy the day!
