would you take a pound for it?

today i woke up quite early, and went to a boot sale with my lovely friend Mandy. when we got there, there was not many stalls, (i think that might have been because it was raining really hard this morning) however we did find a few bits and pieces we liked. I found two cute brooches which were £1 each, which i thought was quite good, and i got a tea tin which cost me 50p, and i thought i would be able to fill it with some sort of treasure. :) after looking round we decided to go for a little drive. the weather was getting better. we stopped to look at some Poppy's. i felt quite happy as i sat in the car and took in the countryside. i guess i have missed it quite alot, since i have been living in a city. it was nice to be back.
while on our drive, i found an amazing car, which i would love to be able to drive! it looks beautiful and lots of fun.i also nipped round my nan and grandad's house today with my dad. it was really nice to see them, and i love being in their house. nan feed us cheese and biscuits, and a lovely piece of chocolate roll. while at their house i got to visit gdad's shed (which i love) and i found two small chairs my sister and myself used to sit on..they had been cleaned and ready to give away for someone else to use. I remember that i had lots of Beatrix Potter stickers on my chair.

I wannt to steal that car. Or maybe buy one just like-I'm not a criminal.

The pieces you purchased have a great antique quality. Like they are holding onto old stories.

Ahhh...nature and grandparents. Nothing more satisfying and soul warming.

I ADORED Beatrix Potter books when I was little!

hello :)

thank you for another photo compliment :)

your boot sale finds are very lovely. I am pretty fond of flowered biscuit tins.

I watched the latest Torchwood episodes that were on last week. But I haven't seen the old ones :S was a bit lost at some points.
I'm going to get the other Torchwood episodes on DVD. I was labouring under the illusion they would be inferior to Doctor Who but I am happy to find I am wrong :)

Love Gwen but Captain Jack... I felt sorry for him. There was no Doctor there to save the day, he had to do it himself and in such a horrid way :(

And poor Ianto :(

take care
