In an effort to avoid having to drive we went into town to a flea market – (or should that be fleamarket?) Anyway we went off early as the market opened at 11am and we had no idea where it was being held. Well we had a general idea but once we hit the boundaries of general we were a little lost. We found the market and started to spend. I bought a white and red crocheted shawl (I know I could but doubt I ever will make one), a floral blouse and a pair of fingerless gloves. I’m particularly pleased with the gloves as I’m not fond of wool and these are almost a fleece type fabric. I’ll post a photo or two once I figure out where I’ve put the camera – yes one more victim of “I just put it down”. Himself bought two RiverCottage DVDs and a CD of somebody – I can’t remember.
Once we were finished in the market we wandered off to my sisters apartment and we got to mind my niece while Kay got ready to go out. Once she was ready she fed Aoibhe and himself told us we were cruel to be laughing at the poor child – but she was making faces and funny faces at that. She has 2 bottom teeth and she was rubbing her lip over them. Anyway after that she fairly flaked out so we bundled her into her pram and off we all went to the museum for a wander around. It was the first time that the sister had been there and although we did have to long there at least now she knows what’s there for the next time.
The only draw back to today is that our feet are killing us – him ’cause he was breaking in new boots and me ’cause I walked a lot. So home and dinner. Feet up to watch Larkrise – my husband almost referred to me as a spinster as I like the two spinsters in the episode have no children. Of course then sense kicked in when I reminded him that we were married and therefore couldn’t be a spinster. The cheek of him!! Anyway I’m just out of my bath and we’re listening to Mike Oldfield on YouTube.
It’s a nice way to wind down the weekend and build up to work tomorrow.
