Glorious Weather

What a fantastic day of sunshine we've had her. Good thing too because we spent this morning selling unwanted items at a Car Boot Sale in Cheddar. Didn't do to badly we made £135 before going off to spend some of it on some jugs for re-enactment, and a silver tankard also for re-enactment. After costs and spending we still ended up with £100 (think that's about $185 or €146)

Sold a lot of baby stuff we no longer need and a few computer games amongst other things.

The plan is that it will cover our expenses for our couple of days away from the children for our 7th Wedding Anniversary next Sunday/Monday. First time we have been away together without children in 6 years or so !!! Nanny A is coming to stay to look after the brood; while we get to stay in a nice little B&B near Uttoxeter and get to go to Alton Towers without a Pushchair in sight !!! WOO HOO!!!

Would probably have been easier if we hadn't stayed up to watch the first to episodes of Season 2 of Lost last night, and got to bed before 00:30....maybe an early night would have made getting up at 05:15 more bearable

And sitting out in the sun next to the lake at the sale I finished off LMB's Re-enactment Shoes....So as promised here's piccies, not to bad for my first attempt at making Turn Shoes :o)

As always click to show enlaged picture...

Pretty chuffed with the results, the fit and LMB says they are comfortable too :o) Yay Me !
