Today has been a good day! We were up quite early and the three of us on the road just after 9am. We arrived in town in less than half an hour and managed to find a parking space straight away. The plan was to go our separate ways, then meet outside the bakery around 10.30, grab something to eat and take it back to the car.
Our neighbour went off as we made our way to the butcher to stock up with sausages for the freezer. We took them back to the car and put them in the freezer bag, then split up.
I walked to the furthest part of town then worked my way back. There were a lot of charity shops to choose from and I went in them all. Most didn’t have anything of interest, but I did find a couple of things that I’m really pleased with and I think Hubby will like them.
I went into one charity shop and the cheapest item was £40! I realised I’d made a mistake and left pretty sharpish, but the way the merchandise was laid out wasn’t exactly inviting, it was all very haphazard and disorganised in my opinion.
At 10.30, our neighbour was already waiting at the bakers, so I joined her, but there was no sign of Hubby. I called him on the mobile (so glad we have one each) and suggested we meet him at the car. Our neighbour insisted on treating us to lunch, so we took rolls, cakes and cups of tea and coffee back with us. I have my own keys so could let us in as we waited for Hubby. He was only a few minutes after us and looked so tired, but he was smiling, so I think he had a good shop too!
We enjoyed our car picnic, came home and had another cup of tea together.
Hubby then decided to wash the car and I wrapped his presents, so even if he finds them by accident, it won’t spoil any surprises.
This afternoon has been spent writing my cards which we delivered on our final walk this evening. It’s got really cold now so doubtful we’ll be going out again. As it happened, I still didn’t have enough as I saw a couple of people I’d forgotten, so used a sheet of robins and made a further 8 and have some spares now.
Still a little out of focus I’m afraid.
Hope you’ve all had a good and positive day.
Keep safe everyone
Your day sounds really nice. I have done okay, eldest son WhatsApp us this morning and we had a three way video call. Then this afternoon I accompanied Hubby and Ruby on a shirt walk. Exhausted myself but proud of me. 💜🐾🐾
Good for you getting out for a walk! Well done!! Rest up now. ❤
That sounds like a decent day x
It was a good one Gary.
Success at last. Hope both of you enjoy your presents. The cards are so sweet.
Thanks. It was a good day
I’m glad to hear that the shopping was a success! I can only guess at the treasures you found… This set of cards are very pretty, the last 2 are my favorites!
It was a sheet of ‘toppers’ and very popular a few years ago. I have a variety of gift tags left in my kit now, so next year I shall be on the lookout for something similar to make my cards with.
