whatever that is!!!
Our school had teacher training today so I had three children to look after ..... tomorrow is back to school day and I can't say I am sorry. I love them to bits but I am really looking forward to getting some time back for myself during the day and already have the rest of the week planned. No doubt a spanner will be put in the works now I've said that and it will all go pear shaped.
We had such a lovely week weatherwise and the garden was taken full advantage of .... it has been such a long winter and I think we were all getting a little stir crazy after being indoors for so long. Last week we went to the park and visited the museum where they had two exhibitions .... one of local lacemaking and the other called squashy sculptures.
Tich and quackers
The colours of these primulas are an inspiration aren't they
This is the first sculpture .... all red and soft with some comfy seating inside
The second is like a giant mollusc and there are special lighting panels inside giving this effect
Car boot season is now in full swing ... me and the Ellie monster went off on Saturday morning to bag some bargains .... turned out she got more than me! We came home with another Baby Annabel pram and doll (how many does a girl need??) and from the same lady a lovely Triang 5 way sit in car for Jack which was absolutely pristine together with a ball tent and zillions of balls.
On Sunday morning we went off again, this time Ellie's parents were selling at the boot so she wandered round with me and the pram. This time it was my turn and I went for quality rather than quantity.
A pair of Ikea Rosali roman blinds, a length of Laura Ashley Summer Palace fabric, a Laura Ashley candlestand, Annabel Karmel cook books, an M & S retro notebook, some pretty gingham hankies and the print was on the stall opposite my daughter .... the more I sat and looked at it the more I liked it .... I think I've finally decided on a pink and green colour scheme for my re-claimed front room (I'm getting there very slowly) so this will be perfect. Total spend was £21.
Tomorrow morning after I have dropped the children at school I am off to the Watermill to get some dog & chook food and hey ho there just happens to be a bootie there too ;-)
I hope you all had a lovely Easter x
