I enjoy ...

... working (playing) at the Charity Shop one afternoon a week. I pay them rather than they pay me! Today I brought home 2 carrier bags full. (I have to sneak them in quietly.) I thought I'd better have the Low-Fat cook book just to show that I do pay some attention to my diet. I couldn't say no to the hessian. I'm sure it will come in handy sometime.

The belt is lovely, just the thing to wear with my long skirts.

I also got 2 T-shirt tops and 3 zips (for putting in the skirts from the car-boot. I know why they were 50p each now.)

Finally I found this upholstery fabric which I hope will be enough to cover the chair in the picture and possibly its twin. The price for all was £7 which I thought was a real bargain. I've made myself more work now though.
