Just what I didn't want!

was a letter from our landlady saying that she is going to be having some work done on her Farmhouse, and is going to be moving into our house from July! We only moved here at the end of October. It was the biggest waste of time ever. We've lived a winter in the middle of no where, paying nearly £100 for oil at Christmas as we ran out, I've dug my car out of the snow to get home from work, but I thought a summer in this garden will make up for it. How wrong was I. I am panicing as well as it we looked for months, years before we took the plunge to move here. We just aren't going to get anything suitable. I am thinking of living in my tent on a roadside and save some money up to buy a palace!

I still went carbooting at the weekend...I can always have a bootsale before I move for my none necessary items!

A lovely little Meakin jug £1

 A pretty vase. The lady had some lovely things...£2

 Some kind of toothbrush holder from the Vase Lady, she said I was her best customer! 50p

Another Adam's jug. I have two now. 50p.

Everyone keep their fingers crossed I can find a house!!
  (don't tell anyone but I was wanting to try for another baby this summer, so I need a house!)

Boot Sale Season is BACK!

OH YEAH BABY. I was so excited about going on Sunday. I work nights 2 out of 5 weekends, so when I was off and it was nice this Sunday I skipped out the house at 9.45. The sale starts at 9am, but sellers arrive all the time. I had decided this season I really wanted a hen egg storage thing. My Gran has one and I have been meaning to ask her for it, but daren't. I'd love to ask her for half her house, but that's a different story. She's 87 and her and my Grandad have been needing to downsize for years. Her gorgeous immaculate house just isn't the same anymore. It needs a good clean and some TLC. Anyway, back to the boot sale...I also want vases, blue and white pottery, green and white, and gold frames. I have 6 months to get some good finds in spread between Sedgefield, Pickering, York and Thirsk carboot sales. They are all the ones between myself and my mum's.

             My spring mantle piece. So my boot sale waffle doesn't bore you too much

I got to my sisters to pick her up, she had a fit. She had nothing to wear, she's too fat, she hasn't got time for boot sales. Jees, we arranged to go. Sod you, I did what I had been wanting to do for ages, but never daring. I WENT ON MY OWN. I got my £20 out of the cash machine, and qued up to get into the car park. It was so busy. When I got there I nearly went home. I couldn't move, and people smelt so bad. Puke.

Anyway, things quietened down a bit and I managed to get looking. I found books for Harris. He is Thomas the Tank mad, and cars mad. So I got him loads of things, and clothes.

I found a lovely decanter for £1, a jug for 50p, some gold picture frames for 50p, and then I saw my Hen Egg Holder!! A lady already had it in her hand, I hovered. Put it down, Put it DOWN!!! I screamed in my head.  She did. I asked how much £3, I got her to £2, and its mine!!! YEAH!

Its only a 6 egg holder. I will be looking for more. I love the jug and the decanter. Total £3.50.

This frame can not wait to be sprayed white!

After that, you need a drink really. 

What did you get at the car boot sale?
