Saturday I went to my usual charity shops. One was packed with people who a few years ago would never even walk past one let alone go in :( so I went up to the Help the Aged charity shop. It must have been my lucky day because as I went in a guy came in behind me with a big box of stuff he was donating, he still had loads in the car to bring in. My friend who works there was going through the stuff and saw this washboard and so did I lol. When I asked about the price she said the man had just brought it in and I could have it for £1.45 :) :) :) The best bit was the price was still on the back for £18.99. I love the little magnetic pegs. My dilemma is do I paint it (I have some Farrow & Ball paint) or do I leave it as it is? These beautiful flowers were given to me from my son's school. I have been doing toast for the children every morning for the last 41/2 years and have now given it up. I am realy going to miss it but with the hectic life I have at the mo Im not spending time with my son so something had to go.
