~Car Boot Sunday and catch-up~

I've been very remiss with  blogging lately, I think because there is complicated family stuff  going on here - my mind is so occupied and befuddled there is no room for any creative thoughts at the moment.  Trying to stay positive and looking forward to the 6 week hols to spring-clean my head!  Maybe it's the weather too; I find the normal going to work and doing housy stuff is difficult - it's too hot for me, I end up like one big grumpy, sweaty freckle!
On a positive note, L's 18th Birthday vintage tea party in the garden went well.  The weather was so hot it was 'cracking the flags' as we say in Yorkshire.  Haha I have to say that although some tea was consumed, the tipple of most was Pimms and some homemade elderflower cordial. I'm such a ditz at the moment I have deleted all my photos of the party, the garden and the cake without uploading them to the PC.
L then went to Amsterdam with 10 friends for 3 days, which I found hard as I do like to be in control of everything. She had a fab time and is back now :)
I got up early today and had a quick drive to the local car boot which has relocated to a new venue, but isn't half as well attended as before.  However, as well as a bright red showerproof cagoule for Small Dog, I found this polka dot terracotta jug for 50p...
I'm imagining this lovely jug at some point in the future on a seaside windowsill filled with daisies!
Also a white pottery chicken for £2...

 Bye for now, enjoy the sun and see you soon. x


  1. Hi - if you want to chat again - email me :)

    An 18th birthday sounds good - we have one of those early next year - can't believe time has gone so fast and my big son will be officially an adult!!

    I have to confess to loving this warm weather - perhaps because it helps with my 'taking it easy'!

  2. Only a few more days until the holidays - hold on in there! Jx

  3. Hi Sally, Glad L's birthday went well and that she got back in one piece!! You worry far too much! I love the jug and I can imagine it in your seaside home. I bet you cant wait for the summer hols to begin, not long now.

  4. Hi Sally, I'm trying not to moan about the heat as I moan too much about the cold but I think the weather is poaching my brain a bit. We can't open the windows here as they got painted shut so all I have is a fan to circulate some air.
    It's good to hear the 18th went well and I hope you have some nice things to look forward to in the summer hols. I like the chicken find :) x

  5. I know what you mean about the heat - not complaining but it really does drain me and then I don't feel like doing anything. Love the spotty jug. Glad the 18th went well.

  6. It is taking all my energy to cope with the heat , shouldn't complain but I totally understand you! Your jug is lovely xx

  7. ....polka dot terracotta jug for 50p !!! No way ! Oh ! It is SO lovely on your windowsill ! Lucky you ! : )


Please feel welcome to get in touch or leave a comment - I really appreciate it. Sally x
