Just a quick hello before the football takes over Chez Sophie & Gav's mates turn up for a BBQ & the footie.
We've had a lovely weekend, we started it with a well deserved Curry on Friday night after a very full week.
On Saturday morning we were up early (due to the heat) which was good as it meant we were out of the house and off to the salvage yard for a nosey round.
It was really rammed with stuff, which is great to know for when we need something for the garden or house. We didn't buy anything, save some pennies up me thinks for the next visit!!
Then we went off to a new shop that has opened in Chichester called Home Sense which is a TKMAXX home store, I was in heaven!
There was soo many beautiful, wonderful lovely things in there.
We did come home with a few things, purely useful you understand!!!
We got some new bedlinen, bargain at £16.99 from a Linder Barker range, it's white with a massive green flower on it.
I got some jam & preserves labels £1.99 a pack, Gav got some big boy! steak knives.
We fell in love with this kitch napkin dispenser £2.99 great for bbq's unfortunately we are still trying to source the napkins that go in it, think I might have to chat up someone who has a cash & carry card as I think they are more of a coffee shop thing.
We found these 2 books Wild Food £4.99 for Gav & The Thrift Book £3.99 for me, I have already started reading it and I had to finally put it down late last night. Definatly worth a read if you can get a copy.
So shopping aside, I decided as the weather is so good that I would strip down 2 old deck chairs that I acquired, One has a canopee over the top which is nice the other is really old and has little latches to lik it into place.
I just need to sand them & teak oil or white wash them, not sure which yet.
What do you think?
I have measured them up for the fabric seats so might get them done this week in the evenings.
We then gardened until 9pm, filled the car to take to the tip.
So this morning we were up early again and off to the tip, which is always an achievement on a Sunday.
We had to get rid of a bucket of rubble and when we pulled up at the rubble bay I spotted something sticking out of the pile, so I was straight out of the car to see if it was what I thought!
And it was a lovely little Belfast sink, we have 2 large ones already which our neighbours have been admiring lately. So I asked the man and he said I could have it, so with that it was into the car & home.
We gave our lovely neighbours their little sink which they were really chuffed with.
That's my thrifting done for the day.
So Footie kicks off soon so I must go and be the hostess!!
Have a great day & Come On ENGLAND.
