We didn't expect anyone to be at the boot sale today as the weather was awful. Much to our surprise the field at the top of Verdin Park was quite lively with cars, tents, hot dog stalls and punters. Hazel drove up the hill and parked on a muddy patch by a large marquee. Obviously something to do with the Northwich Carnival later on today - crowning of the Carnival Queen, Dog Show, Line dancing? Who knows.
The procession of floats and marching bands etc. was yesterday but it was raining so we didnt go.
The rain had stopped this morning and looked like it might brighten up. I didnt get much really but pleased with my purchases- a set of Readers Digest CD's for a few pence. Early rock 'n roll from the likes of Jerry Lee Lewis, Fats Domino and Little Richard with a few poppy things by Pat Boone and The Crewcuts thrown in for good measure. Also a 5 DVD set of Phantasm series of horror films for a quid. Hazel bought some plants and Furbie for Archie which he has stripped down to a bare carcass. I think he is taking to the school for evil experiments.
