Last week on our trip to the metropolis of Stornoway we did the usual rounds of the charity shops. I was looking for pudding bowls in readiness for making Christmas puddings. I didn't have a lot of luck so my search continues. I did however find a small glass bowl which will be useful for the festive period.
A real bargain at 50p. I also found a small glass jug which is useful for cream and sauces, whatever the season. Another bargain at 40p.
Gerard slipped in the bathroom a couple of weeks ago and dropped the soap dish breaking it. Thankfully he was OK. I did come across this beautiful shell, the perfect replacement for the bathroom, fitting the theme perfectly. 50p was its bargain price.
Finally, I always browse the patterns and managed to find some crochet patterns to add to my collection.
Each one 10p each.
We are training Mickey back to the floor, he has been a little cheeky of late loving the chairs and settling right into the cushions. When he was told to get down he took the cushions with him, he is one clever dog.
Here he is in his bed using the chair cushion for his head, he has his own but still favours mine.
Our garden seems to be on the migration route for many birds, we have been inundated with flocks of Canadian Geese and Starlings. It was at times looking out of the window like something out of the Alfred Hitchcock movie, The Birds. Sadly the camera is never handy when you want it but I did manage to snap a couple of photos.
We are going to put our feet up today and take things easy, taking our time to reflect upon the events of the last few days.
As always your comments and support are always appreciated. I am a little behind in my visits to you but ill be visiting as soon as I can. Take care.
See you soon.
