First Boot Sale Of Year


Brrrrr! Its cold- too cold really for standing around at boot sales but amazingly quite a few brave souls at the Witton Albion FC boot yesterday. Hazel bought this great brass whistle complete with wooden pea for 50pence. The green mould was free! I didn't find much, loathe to get my hands out of my warm pockets! In the end I came away with the second series of The Peep Show on DVD for 20p. Archie bought a quoit/frisbee thing for dogs to catch? Maybe he is training Wilf to fetch things.
Later we went for a walk around Shakerly as it was very sunny and had warmed up a tiny bit. Watched the ducks slide across the frozen sections of lake trying to avoid the flying crusts that Archie was flinging. BRRRrrrr!

Sorry I forgot to mention that Hazel took this lovely picture of her whistle. She's well practiced at close-ups.

Just got some vouchers for the new co-op store through the post- two quid off the first ten spent- that shouldnt be too hard! Its opening on the 22nd though- nevermind!

Talking to yourselves? That's a bad sign. You'll be texting one another next while you're still in the same room.

It's very mild down here in the sunny south.

Off to Eastbourne for the day to celebrate Steph's birthday.
