At the Market

marketfinds230213

Oh, it is lovely to be able to drive again and have my freedom back. Last weekend I kept going out in the car, just because I could. I didn’t buy anything much at the market then but did get my car thoroughly cleaned there. ‘Now you’ve got a nice silver blue car instead of a green one!’ Too true. My poor car lives outdoors, under a cherry tree which is currently in full bloom.

It was absolute brass monkeys at the market this morning but I’m glad I went. I bought: a huge pile of old knitting patterns, the complete Darling Buds of May series on DVD* and an old book, all for a fiver. Also a stamp album for rather more but which I’m pleased to have. As I walked away from the pattern sellers I heard one say, ‘She got a bargain!’ The joy of haggling. Well, people can always say No.

*Blimey, just looked this up on Amazon and it costs £49.99! Let's hope all the discs are in good condition.
