I'm just about scraping in on time with my
Friday Rocking list.
I do so LOVE charity shops.
From Oxfam I bought a HUGE stack of postcards
from all over the world, some used, some not,
mostly from the late 1960's- 1970's.
I've only had a chance to flick through them but
what made me giggle is that on the British
postcards the writers ALWAYS refer to the
weather as being
'raining all day',
'raining all week',
'not bikini weather' etc.
When will us Brits ever realise that our summer
weather is USUALLY rubbish!
Warm sunshine is the exception rather
than the rule.
And then look at this one.
Who takes their car on a plane,
especially in the 1960's/70's?
Well, apparently 'Mummy' does,
who tells her daughter Ruth that
"This is what the car looks like going
on to the plane."
Some of the postcards are really funny,
both the picture and the message on the back.
I might show you some others in due course,
unless that would be too tedious of me....?
I'm thinking of doing a journal,
incorporating the best postcards
I've received such a lovely welcome from the
Gauche Alchemy girls.
Thank you for popping over to
Gauche Alchemy and leaving your lovely
comments about me. You know who you are
(Carmen, Jewels, Lenna and Trish!).
I've really got to get on with making 'stuff' now.
Cally-Cat is making us laugh with her obsession
for the shower room!
If she catches sight of anyone going in there, she's
up those stairs faster than greased lightening
(what's happened to the elderly cat that could barely
drag herself through the cat flap?!),
so desperate is she to be in there too.
DS Luke had to physically stop her getting in the
shower with him this morning,
so she just sat and watched him.
He said he felt quite self conscious showering
under her unwavering gaze!
I will take some more photos soon,
should she stop moving for long enough.
I don't want to take a photo of her sleeping
in her cupboard under the stairs, that seems unfair.
She's put on quite a lot of weight
and is lovely and fluffy.
I can't believe we've had her for just 3 weeks,
she's such a precious little thing
and we all love her.
continues to be so good with Cally
and we're so proud of our darling girl.
Oh, apart from one little blip when she
took advantage of Cally's door being left open and
scoffed Cally's fish 'n' chicken dinner.
Cally was NOT impressed!
My sweet Valentine
bought me a beautiful gift today.
He doesn't know it yet,
I'll tell him later.
This GORGEOUS bracelet is named 'Starshine'
and is made by the so talented
It was love at first sight when I saw it on
her blog a few days ago, and then today
Sharon announced she was
offering a whopping 25% discount until February 5th.
Thank you, Sharon
and thank you,
my sweet Valentine.
Starshine is SO much better
than chocs and roses!
Click here for her etsy shop.
I enjoyed coffee with my friend Sue today.
Coffee, cake and catch-up.
OK, that's my Friday Rocking list finished
and I'm now starting the weekend on a high.
I'll post it with Virginia
and visit the other Friday Rockers.
Thank you for dropping by,
wishing you all a lovely weekend.
