Tweet !


Certain corners of my life have been neglected of late and my blog is just one of them. I feel as though I have woken from a long slumber to discover that the world is also waking up to the idea of Spring. The birds are doing a fair amount of tweeting, the originators of social networking and the mornings and evenings are becoming increasingly lighter.. big hurrah!!!

Sitting here with my cup of coffee and hot cross bun.. I like to live it up a bit... writing yet another list of things I have to give my attention to. Must be hereditary this 'list' compulsion, my father was an avid list writer. So much to catch up on after a week of being laid low with a nasty chest infection.. and a half term trying to get over it.. but with the promise of Spring in the air and events on the horizon there is no time for complacency.

We are hours away from our first Jumble Sale and I still haven't assembled my motley collection of vintage 'tat' for the table...

So.. please forgive my absence for the last month. I will return soon, with no doubt, tales of women fighting in the aisles over a crocheted tea cosy.. or being stabbed with an umbrella by an over zealous bargain hunter! If jumble sales are your thing.. and this is no ordinary jumble sale.. It will be piled high with vintage bargains galore.. then make your way to the Rangeworthy Village Hall tomorrow and join the throng. You will need sharp elbows and a hard hat but it will be worth the scrum!!

Look forward to seeing you there!

We've had a change of plan and now hope to see you tomorrow, Michele! I'm sharpening my elbows especially. Sorry to hear you have been under the weather, I think we all really need some fine Spring weather to pep us up a bit!

Hey Stranger

I did wonder where you had gone - sometimes hard to keep going when it's so miserable outside! Fingers crossed Spring is now well and truly on the way!

LOL! that sounds like a wild jumble sale. I would love to disaparate like Dumbledore and just turn up there, pointy elbows at the ready! Good luck! jx

I think I must move to Somerset - all the best events seem to happen there. I don't have a tin hat but I do have a shopping trolly that can be a bit vicious on the ankles! xx

Hi Michele

I'm so sorry I wasn't able to come to the JS today but from all accounts it was a great success.

It seems months since we caught up, but life has had its usual appendages and time has shot by in the blink of an eye.

Sorry you've not been 100% - hope you're fine again now and hopefully we can make that date for a get-together before too long.

So wish I could come, boo hiss! Hope it has been a brilliant success, it is such a good idea.
Happy to have lighter evenings and glimmers of sunshine here in Kent,

love Sarah x

Hi Michele. Before I forget I hope you now feel a little better. I daresay you struggled to get ready for the rummage sale. I wish I could have been there. I have very happy memories from the bun fights I used to attend with my Mum. You are so right about elbows, and the scrum once the doors open! We used to have nicknames for all the regulars too, so funny! I must say I have missed your blog posts, as you really do have such a clever way with words Michele. So glad we can keep in touch on Twitter though. Hope the day was a success for you. x
