                                 Thank you for stopping by;

Had a lovely day out Monday with my mate Sue, I found a real bargain. I was looking for a coat and went to the "Edinburgh mill" in the Wyevale Garden centre, I looked at two coats and liked them both but they were not cheap. They were on sale and it turned out that I could get both coats for less than the price of the cheapest. So it had to be done. Bargain of the week I think

    Oh, I do like the rabbit clock and the sentiment. That's exactly how I've felt since October!!
