As well as wandering round lovely National Trust properties over the weekend we went to a couple of car boot sales. The first one at first glance seemed dismal, just two rows of cars with hardly any browsers and buyers cars leaving as quickly as they arrived. But we had a wander round anyway and we were glad that we did. We got the lovely solid pine handmade cupboard for just £10. It will be painted and will hang in the bathroom once we get round to finally renovating it.
We also bought a Dvd box set of the first two series of Scott and Bailey for £1, and the book which caught my eye (as they do) for just 50p.
We picked up one of these boxed sets and were chatting to each other about how it was supposed to be such a good series and that we had never seen it, and the chap behind the table piped up with "you can have the lot for a pound".
Who were we to say no ... one of them is unopened and still wrapped in its cellophane wrapper. We'll give the first episode a try and if we like it we'll watch the lot, if not we'll sell them on next time we do a car boot sale ourselves, there's definitely some profit there!!
We went on to another one, which looked very promising, lots of cars parked up in row after row basking in the sunshine. There were lots of buyers bustling around ..... but there was nothing we spotted that we either needed or even just wanted. So we bought an ice cream and mooched about a bit before getting back into the car and went on our way.

The house is all quiet, very quiet, so I was wondering what the dogs and Ginger were up too .....
... I needn't have worried. Everyone was snoozing.
What a pair of cuties.
