Just a blog post..........

Well hope everyone had a good Easter, and I would like to say hello to my new followers. 
We didn't do much over Easter, just went to see the grandchildren (see previous post).  That was an absolutely lovely day.  We love going to see them.  Saturday we were going to do a boot fair, but all of a sudden the weather was
against it turned quite cold and we didn't fancy standing in a field freezing, so we abandoned the idea.  It turned out to have been quite a fruitful afternoon and we missed it!  The first bootfair of the season and apparently every space was taken in the field and they opened another field too.  The buyers were queuing quite a while to get in too.

But............  

green bakelite sock darner bought for 50p

...........they had another one yesterday, but this time only a quarter of the field was taken up, and there was more buyers than sellers.  I am actually trying to wean myself off of boot fairs too much stuff needs to go!  I have actually stopped going into charity shops now but Alex wanted to go so we went and I picked up a green bakelite sock darner.  The top unskrews for you to keep needles and darning wool inside.  I already have my mums one which is brown and also unskrews.


The last of my birthday flowers.  The two little vases are from here


and my 50p flowers from yesterday from Morrisons!

O is for..................

Ostern*

Sorry cheating a bit!  
And sorry this is two days late, went to see grandchildren Friday
and was busy yesterday!



Is it quite dark and dismal and cold today.  They say there is more chance of having snow at Easter!

found the chocolate
Father Christmas at the back of the cupboard!
rather than Christmas!

Caitlin & Liam with their "Easter Eggs"
I know it doesn't look like and Easter Egg, but thought they would have more fun with a sandpit rather than a chocolate egg!  They did get a small egg each but gave it to their mummy quietly for today!  

Scarlett-Marie
Little sister is still rather small for Easter Eggs and sandpits


She got a handknit instead!


* Ostern =  German for Easter

P is for..........

Plants, Primroses and Pots
and Photography

If it wasn't for this man none of us would have digital cameras to hand or carry them in our bags to snap picture here and there.  

 Two large yellow plants


I can never remember the name of this plant.  
Mum always called it "Billy Buttons"


Here is it's flower.
They seem to grow on the the straight stems


Forsythia


The Bluebell patch which sits by the drive




My Primroses



Two large pots that need weeding and sorting after the winter.
...............and my indoor Pot!
remember this 

Well as you see, we have a second growth!
the fifth flower did come out but the other four died before it was out fully


But we seem to have four buds again!
I wonder if we get a fifth............


This Amaryllis has been quite spectacular!

R is for............................

RADIOS!


There is an awful lot in our house!


Some in bits or being repaired


Some go for sale usually here  which is open to the public


Some decorate the house like this one.  This one has its own stand which is rare.
At the moment the stand is housing my vintage needlework magazines, well its an ideal safe place!
