This morning I hot-footed it over to Burnham-on-Crouch as there was a Craft Jumble in aid of the Essex Air Ambulance. I managed to buy 3 beautiful patchwork and applique books and absolutely loads of fabric all for £9. What a bargain ! On the way back I stopped off at a lovely little farm shop to buy some veg and strawberries for lunch tomorrow and was amazed when I walked into the shop (I hadn't been there before) to find it stuffed full of fresh local organic produce including meat and dairy products. I bought the most delicious beef and horse-radish sausages which we had for tea this evening. I shall definitely be paying them a visit again in the near future.
I then met up with Paul and the children for lunch at Pizza Hut and afterwards we popped into PC World so that we could buy a lovely new printer for me !! I can't believe how much smaller, quieter and quicker than the old one it is - I think Paul's a bit cross because he's got to have the old one in his office now !
This afternoon was spent cutting the grass (again !) and pruning roses.
And I just wanted to show you a picture of my beautiful new shoes (sorry - I'm sad, I know !) But they have been hand-embroidered and I just HAD to have them ! I very rarely wear shoes with heels, especially since I've had the children, but Paul and I are off to the races at Newmarket in July (a corporate bash with his work), so I needed to buy something reasonably posh to wear and I bought a lovely black and white retro print dress whilst we were in the US and just needed a pair of shoes to go with it ... how nice are these??
Enjoy the sun and the rest of your weekend !
