Fun things

I just had to post this picture of the delicious purple sprouting broccoli that we have just had out of the garden. I almost gave up on this a few weeks ago - I planted it this time last year and was expecting it to sprout over Christmas. I'm so glad I persevered though. Yum!

Remember this post about the boats? Well, luckily we had our offer accepted and we should be the proud owners mid-week, I will post pictures when we collect it. In the meantime, of course, I needed deck shoes. Here are the ones I picked up locally for the bargain price of £7.

Not very inspiring, although I loved the colour.
This is what they look like now.

When we were at school, my friend Marie and I used to always funk up our shoes with ribbons and such. Funny, I had forgotten all about it until I bought these. (BTW, Get well soon Marie!)

I'm still playing with my new camera so please forgive any wobbly photos.

The most exciting news ...... I'll leave until tomorrow. It's a lot of fun!

It is funny how things from years ago thatwe thought were forgotten we suddenly remember. Yesterday I saw some plastic snap togther bags in claire's acessories that were almost identical to those that were a craze in school during the mid-eighties. Was surprised and did an lot of 'oh I remember....' Never thought I would see them again, and you know what it was the only school bag I had that never broke, I wonder what happened to it?
