I went carbooting last Sunday and picked up some nice bits and bobs considering there weren’t many sellers. I haven’t photographed them all as everything has of course been tidied away! I bought a few old tins for 50p each, some Beryl Wood’s Ware utility plates £1 for the lot, a Wood’s Ware utility jug in Jasmine 50p, some brightly patterned boots for £2, a pair of adorable Scottie dog book ends £4 and a crocheted blanket which I’ve put to use on a chair in the living room that Lily sits on and covers in mud. The blanket will be so much easier to wash than taking the whole cover off. The man had a few of the mini crochet blanket and I wish I’d bought them all now for only a pound a piece.
On Friday night my friend Lisa and I headed over to our best friend’s for a girlie sleepover. I think it’s probably the first one we’ve had since school, not counting the usual crashing at each others houses after a night out. It was lovely and we ate lots of yummy samosas, bhajis and kebab things, not to mention popcorn, cheese and biscuits and left over Christmas chocs (I’m due for my band to be filled next week so it’s a bit loose at the mo, but I was straight back on the wagon the next day). We watched some stand up comedy DVDs, Twilight and Mean Girls and finally fell asleep at 6am, followed by an early morning flurry of ‘My work phone’s going, I don’t bloody work weekend’s!’, ‘Omg, I’ve gotta be at my little brother’s football match NOW!’, ‘Ugh, I’ve got work in an hour’. I was lucky not to have to be anywhere and after picking Lily up from my mum’s, headed home to watch sky plus.
|Chair: Ikea, the curtains are Laura Ashley and were a must have when I bought my house. I managed to pick up a matching blind from a carboot sale for almost nothing and it fits my small living room window perfectly. Fate and destiny obviously!|
