I had previously arranged that we would visit Ravensthorpe's NGS Open Day which is the next village up to us and so pulled myself out of bed and off we set. Iin the heat of the miday sun I found myself singing "Mad Fools and Englishmen...." as we wandered around the village. Mind you it was nice to do something that was not to do with the shop and of course there are lovely gardens to visit but I have to admit it was hard going and we kept trying to find shady spots to cool off in.
Arrived home absolutely pooped out and then just sat and read for the rest of the afternoon.
Now for something a little different, this little set of shelves has been up the side of the yard in Northampton Antiques for ages and eveyone who has tried to buy it has been told that they were not for sale as the gent that owned them was picking them up as he no longer had a booth there. They have been picked up and put down so many times by disappointed buyers. Anyway I commented that I wish he would take them away as they were just so lovely only to be told actually they were now for sale... Needless to say hand went into purse and I made the purchase. I am going to paint them and I have just the place for them on my wall in the office. Result
