Wow, it seems that summer is really here, what a fine few days it has been!
We've been making the most of it with exciting trips to a couple of beaches on the bus (Iris loves to go on buses), having proper bucket and spade days with ice cream and bouncy castles and paddling in the shallows with her friends. Then there's been trips to The Field, for weeding, watering and picking - why just yesterday we picked sugar snap peas, strawberries, salad and asparagus. Just lovely.
Today, of course, it being Sunday an' all, was time again for carboot sales. We went to one in the morning and another this afternoon. The first one was magnificent! At the very first stall, I scored so many ....books! Ha! But the best kind of books, Picture Puffins and Picture Lions. I have them all spread at my feet right now. I have been trying to catergorise them but there's too many!
Oh, and some more Young Puffins naturally.
It's been so much fun buying with the shop in mind! Not to mention the swaps, at the moment I'm working on offerings for Artemis and Laura.
So it hasn't been ALL books but lots of other delightful things as well. I haven't managed to photograph everything today so I'll show you some more tomorrow. But here's a little glimpse (all bound for the shop, well, more or less!)...
Also, thank you all so much for your lovely encouraging comments about the shop, they made wonderful reading and have spurred me on. So it's back to the coalface for me for a little while longer tonight!
