Mixed chazzer day yesterday - went to a furniture shop early in the morning but didn't see what I wanted, then my favourite chazzer in Rochford - came out with 6 books and a pair of jeans for £5 - and lastly another local chaz, came out with two books, a handbag mirror and BNWT game for my little niece for £2.
So much to read, so little time.

When i wash wool, i have a 20 degree 20 minute cycle, i change the spin to the lowest setting and when it's out of the machine i place it on a big towel/bath sheet and roll it up and squeeze, then place it somewhere flat and it keeps the shape.
sounds a keeper to me!!! And many happy returns!!!

I popped into my favourite BHF shop yesterday and came out with three books which were the Sainsbury book of children's party cooking, £1, bought purely for the photos which are hilarious. Sandwich house with celery lawn and twiglet roof anyone?
I also snapped up a blank notebook, £2.99, with lovely quality paper and waterproof covers to use as my next kitchen record book and then pounced on The art of Indian Vegetarian Cooking by Yamuna Devi, £3.50.
Scallops. A host of legends surround this, one of the loveliest of seafoods, except when overcooked. My favourite true story concerns the young lady scallop preparation worker, interviewed by the 'New Yorker' Magazine. When asked for her honest opinion of the shellfish she said "They don't have much personality".

@Wednesday2000 , I don't see why you shouldn't wear a cat jumper whatever your age! If you feel it looks a bit pyjamas-y, could you add a detail that doesn't look at all like nightwear? Whether it's a denim pocket or a shirt collar, it would change the vibe. I really don't think there's much difference between some pyjamas and some tops for day wear, especially among long-sleeved tee shirts.
