So i have a whole week of no lunches because ive spent a whole £5 at the jumble sales yesterday . Really went quite mad i think , Birchwood Scout Hut Cats in Crisis yielded some very nice very heavy and lined red curtains for the big front window , they were on my summer car boot sale list and cost a whole £2 . The old ones can be washed and go in the next one to get a flat box .
Rather nice petit point evening bag that should clean up really well , resale value very low , thats my excuse for keeping it , 50p . Junk jewellery lucky bag 75p this has bits of stuff that will go to the car boot , plus it had a couple of gems for my collection , I really can spot a Miracle Brooch at a thousand paces, gilt toned with an agate stone , not one i already have. Plus a silver fake pearl swirly effort that is growing on me marked Canada .
Then i fitted a bit of work in and drove home via Poterhamworth Booths for a Scout Jumble Sale and Auction , They were practically giving stuff away , so ive acquired 2 big Pyrex roasters one for me and one for the next one to get a flat box , also a large new John Lewis wok , I did kill mine . The auction was hilarious , run by a pair of elderly gentleman , who had no idea what they were selling . Everything was £1 or even 50p . Just a few tools fetched more . If I had storage I could have acquired loads . But I stopped for the giggle.
I even bought what i thought was a gorgeous flowery Joe Brown summer dress , to be told by my daughter , that really isnt you its too girly . Sometimes I just give up , I forget that all my adult life ive had people accuse me of being a bad transexual , comment on how manly i am etc etc .
Maybe thats why i collect little bits of beautiful on my travels , to make up for the fact that it would be money wasted on me . ....oops that does sound rather negative , but really im quite accepting of what life has given me , it gets me from A to B and its better than the alternative
