And then, gradually, plans were shaped. Saturday was spent, er, drinking. Drinking on the train, alone (the key is to bring rum from home and add it to your milkshake). Drinking in a bar, with Anne and Harriet (and eating chips!). Drinking in the park, with Harriet. And finally, drinking in a beer garden, with my housemate Natalie. SO MUCH FUN. Oh and I made a bow out of my hair!
And then, when I was dozing off after all that booze on Saturday night, Lucy tweeted me asking about local car boots, and a plan was formulated to visit my favourite car boot. Lots was found! Which is great - it's awful when you big something up to someone and then it's disappointing. But this was not the case! And I got some great buys, too.
Instamatic camera, £1 (can't wait to play with it!) and beautiful barometer, £4 (which I debated about, because I had car-boot-tunnel-vision by this point, and anything over 50p seemed steep). And forest photos, £1 (actually from Ikea originally, but I loved the eeriness of these foggy shots).
And my ultimate favourite... you know when you see something and you can't just ignore it even though it is not a logical or rational purchase? Yep.
It's a Madeline doll! With OUTFITS! And it was a POUND. I know, I know, I am THIRTY and buying dolls is a bit insane but she's just so cute and redheaded and I just wanted her.
The rest of the day was spent having a lovely gossip with Lucy, and then sitting quietly nursing my sunburn, enjoying some yummy blueberry YooMoo frozen yogurt and reading Wish Magazine (more on that later). Oh, and finally drawing the winners of my Giveaway Week. It was a good Sunday. :)
