Ouch, I spent some money ;o)

I went to have a look at a local car boot sale this morning. The weather didn't look too bad so I thought there might be a few sellers there. It starts at 6am, but I don't go that early. 8.30 to 9am is about right for me, after a coffee and a bowl of Bran Flakes. I wasn't there long before I had to put my hood up to keep my head warm. Not many sellers but enough. 
I was looking for something but didn't find exactly what I wanted. There was a woman who was selling all manner of haberdashery stuff so I had a root through it. Some cotton which I might have bought if it was cheaper. She asked 50p per reel. I passed on that, too dear. She is a trader I have seen before, pretending to sell her own stuff, but surely no one has that much to sell if it is their own and are selling regularly. 
Three things I did buy, total cost £2. No, I am not going to make chips, not going to hang curtains, and not going to play badminton. My mind sees other uses for these items, I think sideways. 
 I didn't stay long, just long enough to check out all the stalls. I thought I might wander around the nearby shopping centre, but by that time I was bitterly cold and decided to head off back home.

Time to put the heating on and make a cooked, late breakfast. Mushrooms, an egg, veggie burger, and garlic wedges. A day indoors I think, it's cold outside.

  5. Breakfast looks good. How do you cook the potato wedges? I remember you said you don't use the oven.

  6. hi ilona mayze heidi and oscar - loved your mushroom meal will give it a try this coming week. thank you for your lovely recipes its hard sometimes to come up with ideas on what to eat. looking forward to seeing your project evolving im sure it will be something really beautiful. Benny is out in the high winds - he is very old and we bring him in every night and care for him like mother hens. i buy him the best food and AMY too. We are both huge animal lovers do you have any ideas what i can do to improve his elderly life - i think he is a happy cat but maybe he has slight dementia which cats of a certain age do develop according to the vet. Lots of love to you and your lovely cats. Enjoy your day.xxxxx
