More Secrets

31 Jul 2006

Just a quick note before my daughter comes home from school. I went into town today to do some last minute shopping for her birthday. My favourite secondhand book and china shop is closing down and they have 50% off everything. I'm very sad that they are closing although they are trying to renegotiate their lease, however, I was able to pick up a few bargains including this lovely teacup, saucer and plate. The homemaking book is for me,it's a 1950's relic and the other book is for my husband as one of his favourite books is "Three Men in a Boat" by Jerome K. Jerome.

I'm off now to hide my bootie, she will be home in 5 minutes.
