carbooty


Excuse the cheesy title. 
I mentioned the other day that I went to a carboot on Sunday. I love carboots and always want to buy everything I see. Josh had to give me a little talk and remind me that I can't actually buy every piece of china crockery there. So I just came away with this little set to add to my collection. I got 3 side plates, 2 saucers and one tea cup for £1.50 - a pretty mismatched set but I wanted the plate, saucer and teacup to go on my little decorative teacup shelf in the lounge!

I've been out loads after work this week (so I haven't been blogging much), mainly due to the nice weather - it's definitely beer garden weather! I went to see Wheatus in a tiny pub on Tuesday :D waaah, it was so good! Then yesterday we sat out and watched the olympic flame go through town, it was the cutest old lady carrying it, I just wanted to take her home! 

I'm going to Southampton at the weekend for a Eurovision party on Saturday night, we're doing a sweepstake and I'm Ireland so I'm making Guinness & chocolate cakes tonight to take with me. On Saturday lunchtime we're going to Turtle Bay, I've been there for cocktails before but never food. The food looked amazing when I was there though, has anyone been? Recommend something for me to try :)

After my cake-making, I'm going to attempt to schedule some posts for over the weekend, because I have quite a few things to blog about but never any time to write and post them! I also have to tidy our bedroom tonight because I had a bit of a wardrobe melt-down yesterday when I couldn't find anything to wear and Josh wasn't too impressed when he saw it. So much to do, so little time... story of my life.

ANYWAY, enough rambling. I hope everyone's enjoying the sun - what have you been up to? x

  5. That tea cup is lovely. I've never ever been to a carboot but I really want to go! (: I miss Eurovision when being at uni, the past two years I've missed out on my family's traditional Euro Party (basically nibbles and the tv haha) because we don't have working tv :( Enjoy though! xx
