This picture was taken after a long day in a warm sticky building
Nothing exciting outfit wise and hardly any make up left on.
Seconds after these pics were taken there was a torrential downpour.
But the sun has been shining all week and today was my last day before a whole 13 days off, so I'm still smiling

Here are some of the thrifty finds I've bagged in the last week.
Check out this fabulous 1970's St Michael tablecloth I found at the Marie Curie charity shop. Actually, it's not a tablecloth, it was labelled as a single bed throw but its just the right size to fit over my giant dinner table. Usually I have to improvise with several smaller ones. (I just can't bring myself to use oil cloth, no matter how practical!!) To top it all off, it was brand new.
Extreme close up!
More 1970's kitchenware
Some coloured glassware and a crochet...thingy. I have no idea what it is. It's round but kind of tapered in the middle like it should be thrown over a lampshade. I just liked the colours and at 50p I could hardly leave it behind.
Oh 1970's tat, I just can't get enough of you!
A few days ago, the Nation family did it's bi-annual (or thereabouts) trip to a well known American-style wholesalers to stock up on razor blades, shaving foam, vitamins, cotton wool... and giant tubs of sweeties.
There was plenty of sweetie excitement to be had. I was very restrained and only came home with the one tub of flying saucers.
There's something so exciting about the cash n carry type shopping experience. Ok, maybe its just me, but the rows and rows of endless stuff gets me all excited in a chocolate factory kind of way.
Especially when you see rows and rows of stuff like this. Complete collections of vintage Famous Five and Mr Men & Little Miss.
She's my favourite
We topped off the American shopping experience with hot dogs, pizza and smoothies - perfect!
Linking up with Lakota's Ta-dah Tuesday to show off my thrifty finds. Better late than never right?
I will be away in sunny Scotland for the next week or so but never fear, I will be back to bore you with my holiday snaps before you know it. Send me positive thoughts for good weather.
Off to stock up on supplies for the housesitters. See you soon
