My husband is mad!

So, I finally got to a car boot sale. Yay! Unfortunately, I didn't find any goodies. Not yay.

Hubby and I made our way to our favourite one, hoping that it had started for this year. It had, although it wasn't as busy as it normally is. Hubby found a couple of bits and then we decided to head off to Cardiff to go to another boot fair.

When we parked up and started walking to the next one, we bumped into Samantha with her boys and the gorgeous Arthur who is such a sweet little thing.
I noticed Samantha was empty handed, so didn't hold out much hope of finding anything, as we seem to go after similar things, and my hunch was right. However, again, hubby found some bits, including a copy of a flight helmet. He asked how much it was and the guy said he wanted £20 for it. Hubby walked away.
After we'd been around the rest of the stalls, and people were starting to pack away, he went back, told the guy that he only had £5 and would he take that for the helmet. Score!
And here it is:

So, hubby spent the rest of the afternoon when we got home, sitting on the sofa wearing his new helmet! Yes. The. Whole. Afternoon!(He is a bit mad, that's one of the reasons I love him!)

It now fits rather neatly in our new TV unit, along with all the consoles and other geeky nic-nacs.

We spent the bank holiday monday getting some garden things and demolishing the old playhouse that was in the garden. It was too rotten to salvage, so we're getting a proper shed to take its place. Then I'll be able to get all the tools and DIY stuff out of the house. At the moment, they're cluttering up the hall, bedroom, dining room and kitchen as we don't have anywhere else to put them (no understairs cupboard and the loft hatch is too small to even climb through-that's another project planned).

On the crafty front, I haven't got around to doing any more of my crocheted scarf, but I have taken a picture of it.

I'm really rather pleased with my first attempt at crochet. I'm finding it really enjoyable and a lot easier than knitting.

I've got an hour long train journey on Friday,(more about that in another post) so I'll take my crochet with me to pass the time.
