So, onto other things!

Two weekends ago, we went down to Windsor. Hubby is going to be a best man in October and needed to go to the suit hire place to be measured. So after that, we had a look in a couple of the charity shops (as we do!). Hubby found another (!) board game to add to the collection, and I got a couple of yards of fabric with a blue rose print for my stash.

We played the game that night with the prospective wedding couple who we were staying with. It's from the 80's and is supposed to see how well you know the other players by deciding what their preferences are. However, the choices were rather random to say the least, not helped by the fact that the preferences were so old and the bride had no idea who a lot of the people mentioned, were! Still, it was fun, but not a game we'll be getting out very often!

Last weekend the sun came out! So, at the last minute, ie, friday, we decided to have a bbq on saturday. (We needed to get rid of some of the bbq meat in the freezer. It was taking up tons of space!) Most of the people we invited had already made plans for the weekend, but some were able to come, and a good time was had by all.
Our first bbq. In August. We normally have our first in April, (wrapped up in fleeces and jackets) but we weren't able to then, the best month, as it turns out.

My knees caught the sun! Just the knees, as I discovered later. Milky white shins and thighs, with red knees, looking like a letter in morse code (if I laid on my side). Dash dot dash!

Chatting to one of our friends at the bbq, I learned about a couple more car boot fairs, so Sunday, guess where we went!
The first one was very small, but the quality of the stuff was good. The second one was big, the biggest we've been to, and had lovely views down to the sea.

Alas, I didn't find anything, but hubby, the videogame console collector, scored a mint, still boxed nintendo NES and a Gamegear with case for £12 for both. He was a very happy bunny!

We won't be going to the boot fairs this sunday as a friend is coming to stay because he has an interview at hubbys workplace on monday. He lives in Kent at the moment, and his fiance (my bestest friend) lives in west London. A job here would enable them to get a home together, and of course, we would be able to see each other more than twice a year, so fingers crossed.

I'm going to my first BBQ of the summer next Sunday....nobody seems to be bothering this year.
I hate not finding anything at a car boot sale, you'd think with all those stalls you'd always find at least one thing, but I've come home empty-handed on more than one occasion :(. A boot sale with a sea view though, now that must make up for the lack of bargains!

Hope your bestest friend moves to Wales, it'll be fab to have her nearby. You must miss each other
