I've had a smashing day..

I went to Marlborough today with my friend the Colonial doll. We met at Kraft Crazy, my local shop, she comes to some of the Workshops and we've become friends. How often do you hear that about people we meet through crafting. Stacks. Ain't it great! Now my Colonial friend has a gift; she's cheerful, upbeat and her wit is quick. I like it. She's very quick to the see the joke and will laugh like a drain, which is frankly, good for the soul. We were in my second favourite sort of store - a cook shop, independent, stuffed to the gunwhales with wonderful gadgets gizmos and stuff that you need in your kitchen. Mmm. Like the Onion Goggles which really had us going. Seriously, a pair of swimming goggles, styled to put on like glasses, but cushioned around the lenses so that onion vapour can't penetrate and cause you to cry. And the frame was pink. Well, we kinda did cry, but not from onions. The lovely ladyshopkeeper tried really hard too - told us about a chap who had chosen a green framed pair to use on his bike in the summer - anti bug, see. Cue more crying from me and the Colonial doll. I did manage to get what I'd gone in for (I have a seriously ridiculous thing for buying nice shaped biscuit cutters), but really, I think the ladyshopkeeper was relieved when we paid up and left! So now I must settle in and get the LO done that I was working on when the Colonial doll arrived this morning. Sitting, front door open (full on sun shine, see) on the hall floor, photographing a pile of rubbish. Really - the contents of my handbag to be precise, but oh my, how much rubbish! So watch this space, I don't know if it'll reveal any more than you already know about me, but it may turn out to be as interesting as WOYWW! Oh and the car window? The result of driving past some rather zealous strimmer guy on a verge in the village. How very inconvenient. But it has been a smashing day!

Glad you had a good day ... but whatever is Mr Dunnit going to say ... you know it will be your fault for driving past said trimmer at precisely the wrong time ... or is Mr Dunnit more understanding than my man who lives in ... whenever I so much as get a stone chip on my car ... please note MY car ... he sucks through his teeth and tuts ... grrrrrr

Julia Dunnit said...

Ahh no, it's OK for me..Mr Dunnit's reaction was 'are you OK, did it scare you?'. Happy to report we were OK but it did make us jump!

3 cheers for Mr D! I shall send my man around for tips :0)

Sounds like a fun day apart from the smashing part. You have the same colour car as me :D Except mine is covered in mud and looks like I've done a cross country rally in it :P

Have put the dreaded hair pics in my sidebar - did a post but the pics came out so big I took it back down sharpish! :D :D

What lovely time spent with a crafting chum. pants to the window, is the zealous strimmer guy going to pay for it?

Life should be full of days like that with lots of fun and laughter. Well done you. Poor car..ouch. Glad no one was hurt but how scarey to think what could have happened. A x

A smashing day indeed ... hope your insurance covers side window replacement!

Kerry said...

Ooops hope he didn't massacre the hedge too. Glad your other half was understanding.

I love going to Marlborough for a mooch - great coffee shop that offers free refills! I know those glasses you're on about - a friend got them as a 40th birthday pressy some years ago - he was not impressed -but what a hoot!

Sam said...

have just been rummaging around your blog, although I can't quite remember how I got here, when I was surprised to see the word Marlborough jump out at me!!! You see....I am in Wootton Bassett - just down the road!! (hope you got the car fixed ok!)
