It's pouring with rain (actually now it has stopped and is sunny) so there will be no bootsales today (boo hoo). I could do with staying at home though. I have things to get on with and not traipse around fields looking for gorgeous little things to buy (oh boo hoo). Once bootsale season has started I hate it if I miss them. It's like taking a drag on a cigarette after you have given up. Once you are back into it you crave them. I won't be going next week as it is Alfie's party (boo bloody hooooooo!)
I popped into a charity shop on Friday. I do this rarely these days as I haven't got so much time so it was lucky that I did go in. I found a vintage Patch doll. Do you remember her? Sindy's little sister. She is wearing her original clothes with the Patch label in too! The best part was that she was only 50p!!!! The old lady who served me said to Lizzy ,who was in her pram, 'Is this for you?'. 'Oh no' I said, 'she's mine'. I used to love my Patch doll. I am still on the lookout for Daisy the Mary Quant doll.
The Leg is getting better slowly. It now has a hard cast on. Alfie is thrilled as he is getting to spend lots of time with his dad who is normally very busy and always says 'I'll play with you later'. Now he is a sitting target and is in prime position to play numerous Play Station games! I am still required to administer 1,000 cups of tea a day along with biscuits, cake, sandwiches and alcoholic beverages. He went to work yesterday afternoon, (he points his crutches while his staff do the running around), as he had a party to run for underprivileged inner city children, so I took my (overprivileged country) children to Pizza Hut for tea. I haven't been for years. It was fun in a stressful sort of way. Our starters didn't appear and the ice cream (I use that term lightly) machine didn't work for a while but the pizzas were actually delicious and it was just nice to have a night off from cooking. We got home in time to watch the Eurovision song contest. What a hoot! Finland, completely mad but marvelous and very well deserved winners. Terry Wogan witty and wonderful as usual and with 25 points we did better than we have done in years! Pin It
