What an awesome weekend. Lovely weather again and lots of nice things to talk about. But first of all random picture time from the weekend below.
We finally got our Toast-o-matic from the kingsmill people. Its pretty cool, only let down is that it is made of plastic and not ceramic which we thought it would be. But yay none the less. Now we are only waiting for the oven mitts and we'll be all set. Also weird thing. A few days previous homebase delivered a lawn mower for next door. Jen took the parcel and when we came to give it to next door they refused it saying they didn't order one. I opened up the delivery note and it was definitely for them! Called homebase who were really surprised at my call and asked why I would call them. "Well, I didn't want to steal a lawnmower off you!" "Oh. Ok well erm we'll send someone round to pick it up". Have yet to hear anything from them. So next time I won't do the right thing then!
On saturday we did some gardening. We finally moved the sun flowers which were slowly growing out of control to the garden. So off to B&Q, picked up a trough and soil and yayness. So they are outside with my strawberry planets of wooness and hopefully soon we'll be having an army of strawberries and sun flowers.
We also hit the park and had a lovely sit down there. The pictures from above are taken from there. As you can see. Mollys tongue is insanely long!
Also before I forget Asda have an awesome Ben and Jerrys deal where the tubs are three pounds! Yay for brownie and cookie dough. The best flavour ever. I also managed to eat a whole tub in under 10 mins again causing stomach and brain freeze at the same time. Bad times. But cookie dough!
Sunday was spent at the car bootsale at bowlee. We packed a mighty picnic and put it in the cooler which lives in the car. I think we are quite sad now as we're clearly beyond are years. A coolbox which plugs into the cigarette adapter and keeps the food cold. I think that is great. But clearly. Sad. Anyways. We got lots of bargins
which hopefully you can see on the right.
They had this cool harry potter towel oh oh and Ghost rider, which was ruined by having a 40 something action hero as the main character but oh my god was only a pound so had to be bought for cheesyness! Also Aeon Flux which we watched tonight, but that film is good (since I love Equilibrium, Ultra Violet etc) and was also a pound. Should have bought the stall and flogged the dvds on ebay heh.
Also managed to get an egyption oil burner thing, new basket for mollys toys, pins of rock um mr beans car which is really good and still sealed. Unfortunatley we were both stupid enough, for the second week running to not put sun tan lotion on. Jen is really badly burned at the mo as well. Meh.
To the left is my bag which holds everything. At the carboot was this stall which had some badges and a few sabbath ones so naturally we bought them all. I stole one for my bag 🙂
I also picked up Focus. Its a good simple science magazine that I like. I used to subscribe to this and new scientist but had to stop for reasons unknown at the moment. They had a really good article about the new probe they are launching into space, as well as the new array which is watching for planets orbitting other suns. Basic princble is to watch a square of space, and if they spot anything moving across one of the suns in the star system that would indicate a planet. The likened it to spotting a knat passing a head light. Madness. Anyways they mentioned SETI which is a project I have given thousands of hours, and lots of donations to for the past 8 years or so. Which is always good.
I'll do a post about that another time as right now am falling asleep. I climbed about in the attic digging the fan out but unfortunatly am now covered in fibreglass and my throat is really sore! lame.
Have more pictures.
