Thursday seen me take Mini Me (should be mini monster) out for lunch in Forres, our nearest town.
Famous for the amount of charity shops it has we did have a good rake and found a few things to take home with us. I have had a long term love of all things Mable Lucie Attwell for many many years and vintage children's books was just an extension of that collection,
so I could not resist these even if the MLA was a bit scribbled on.
Blockbusters just because I am nostalgic that way.
....can I have a P please Bob?
The book on Florida, just because a girl can dream and two wee art books to cut up and use in altered projects if the need ever arises.
A piece of tweed and a tartan skirt (size large), I could wear this but folks would mistake me for Ma Broon and I cant have that! These things are for a craft fair I may go to later in the summer, back to my roots. Anything tartan and all things golf will be required and these fit into that basket, once the fabric is washed I am sure I can cut it up and use it for something crafty, at £2 a piece it's a bargain.
The book is full of witty golfing words perfect for plaques and cards.
We arrive home after lunch to two new arrival's....
Quick little buggers even at a few hour old!
We put them in cups so that Debbie can see them and as she has a passion for tea cut yorkies ( I want one pleeeeeeease Mummy) we thought she would like these Guinea Pigs in coffee cups. She should be on her way back to Philly from a road trip to Canada and hopefully just in time to pack up all my USA mail order shopping before coming home on Monday.
We are expecting another litter anyday so we will have our hands full again.
Today I went with the family to Inverurie as DH had some cattle to sell at the mart and I took Mini Me shopping in town, stopped in by the HOS on the way home and met Mark at the door pulling his hair out over the none delivery of Gorjuss stamps, another week passed and still nothing, I am sure its not only Mark who is driven crazy with all the troubles there has been, our suppliers keep changing the date, every week! I think the guys at PI must all be bald by now. Here's hopping that they get what ever problem is holding them up, sorted sooner than later as we have customers waiting too.
