Op Shops Day

Today, D1, D2 and I got dressed up, had a mini photo session, jumped in the car and drove an hour to town and went Op Shopping.


Had a great day, took some silly photos, got a few goodies each, here’s a pic of our haul.


The teapots are for Polymer Clay enhancement, the box is for foil-work, the glassware is for D1 who has a candle-making venture in mind, and the clothing is split between us all.  Sadly the shoes don’t fit that well once I got them home (shops seem to have in-built delusional emanations).  Am thinking of starting a little ebay shop to re-sell the things I buy that don’t fit once I get home!

The search for the elusive TPB continues, but I did manage to grab a lovely soft, wire-free, red “home” bra from Target.  I do love these so much (I have another 2 in “boring beige”), when I get home I can change into them and feel comfortable, as opposed to cut in two.  Having a big bust is not a joy when it comes to containing said big bust, but these bras make it bearable when I am home.  I’m not going to post a photo, as, quite frankly, I don’t think there is enough screen space for it.  {laughing}

Last Day of Summer

So here in sunny Taswegia, it’s the last day of summer.  Took a picture of the sun rising over the hills this morning at about 7am.

last morning of summer

I don’t mind being up at 6.15am, to get D2 ready for the 7am bus to college, it’s “getting” up, out of bed, that I don’t like!

Off to work, driving beside the beautiful river for 20 minutes isn’t a hardship either, actually stopped and took some photos this morning, it really is beautiful and most times I just don’t notice it because I’m in going to work mode.

Actually, this is a picture of me coming home after work – taken whilst I waited at the roadworks.

Off on another type of search tomorrow – the Op Shop Crawl.  I love Op Shops, and I have indoctrinated D1 and D2 from an early age to appreciate the thrill of the search, the joy of the find, and best of all, the money left over after the buy!
