The Weekend......

Firstly, sorry for not being about the past couple of days, I don't know where the time has gone. It's flown by in a mass of dinners and car boot sales. Whilst I was out taking my mum shopping on Saturday the posty left this gorgeous looking box.
It was my Easter/Spring swap from from Ruby's Mama! Want to see what's inside...........

Lots of prettily wrapped parcels and chicks..........................

And this little stash, a choccy bunny, ceramic heart button, Easter decoration, tissues, ice cream lip balm, cup cake coasters, pot of marmalade, a tiny little glass chick, a great stitches book and a gorgeous hand made necklace.

My pic doesn't do it justice, its so pretty, all those scrummy glass beads.
Thanks so much Kirsty. xxxxx


I hope everyone enjoyed the swap and you have all received your swap parcels now. I may host another swap in the summer, as I enjoyed it so much!

Mum and Dad came over for dinner on Sunday, and gave me this huge bunch of flowers. So many they had to go in two vases. Mum said they were a Thank you for all the shopping trips I take her on, as she's been unable to drive for over a year. Thanks mum and Dad. x

I love the Lillie's!
We had a nice roast dinner followed by fruit flan and custard, and a couple of glasses of cava. They didn't stay too late as we were all tired. I was up at 4.30 on Sunday to do another car booty with my SIL and brother. The weather was a bit of a let down though. The weather man lied, he said it was going to be sunny and maybe showers in the afternoon grrrrr. SIL went home early, but we stuck it out until about 11.30. My brother did well selling old fishing gear and I made another £32. At the end I was even giving stuff away and still couldn't shift it all. Not many good bargains to be had either. I got a couple of lamp bases for 50p each and a nice gift boxed country living coffee pot, will put a pic of that on here another time.

My friend Marie came over for a cuppa Monday, and ended up coming back for dinner too. We did a roast between us which was scrummy. Her daughter came too, and later on a friend came for some drinks. We ate more! including polishing off the batch of iced buns I'd made earlier, and had a play with my Tarot Cards.
The CK jug and keyring were an Easter Pressie from Marie. I was so chuffed. She also got me a cream egg and hubby lots of Easter eggs. Thanks Hun!

The keyring matches my handbag :o).
So all in all a very busy weekend. I need to get cracking now with a swap, that I'm taking part in hosted by Silkie Sue, and a spring swap to do on the SC forum. Busy busy busy.
Have a nice evening folks.

Thank you Pixie for arranging a lovely swap. Great minds obviously think alike, I have been thinking that a Summer/Seaside swap, Autumn/Halloween swap and Winter/Christmas swap would be great fun. If you are arranging a Summer swap I would be happy to host the other two. Please let me know what you think. Best wishes, Pj x
(ps Sorry if this comment is duplicated I think I didn't post the first one correctly, so I'm trying again!)
