2nd Post Today!!!

Do you remember the days when the postman delivered twice???? Such a long time ago! My postie never gets to me till gone 14.00hrs, so maybe I don't have a first post!!!!
Anyway this is nothing to do with what I'm about to write

Tori and I have been out playing!!! I took her to the hairdressers, so she could see where she was going when she goes back to school next week! While she was there I went round the shops!! Look what I got!!



2 trays of dates for 50p,1 hand of ginger 79p both from a specialist veg shop! Some Lavender Joss Sticks £1. 2 x 100g balls of cotton £2!
Well we all know what I am going to do with the ginger! The dates Mark has to eat (I don't eat them!!!) The joss sticks have already been tested and are my favourite! Now the cotton, I couldn't leave it on the shelf, could I, well not at that price!! So what shall I do with it, I suppose I could make some dish cloths, they would be bio-degradable, wouldn't they? Let me know if you have any other ideas!
I tried to get 100% wool so I could have a go at felting, they had some but I didn't like the colours, (fussy)so will have a look elsewhere!!

Then we went out on a photo trip, to one of the most picturesque villages in Wiltshire! But I can't tell you cos that would spoil the surprise on the Daily photo! But there are a couple to that are seasonal and would look odd in February!!!

This was in a court yard,isn't it lovely!



I saw something similar to this on another blog, but they had wreaths on the windows of a log cabin. This is definately different for round here, very in keeping I think!!



That last photo may have given it away, but look who I got in this one..



He! He!

We went on and did an 'Orange Wednesday'! If you are on the Orange Mobile network you phone the number 241 from your mobile phone, you then recieve a text back which has a number on it. Then you go to a particpating cinema where you can go and watch a film at '2 for the price of 1'. This is only available on a Wednesday though! Tori wanted to see 'Eragon' a story about dragons and dragon riders!! Very enjoyable!

A bit of good shopping you've done there; and got GINGER! If only we could do a Dr. Who/Startrek trick and you could send me a piece. How about those hair scrunchie things to use the cotton....you may need to dye it though to make them more appealing

What a productive shopping trip you had. The tree is very pretty, & I love the pictures of the house with the wreathes in the windows...very English.

Why not knit a string bag so that you can reduce your need for plastic bags when shopping?
Lovely blog!
