Vintage finds...

Savers had a 50% off sale yesterday. Usually I avoid the madly overrun place on such days, but then, I just happened to be walking past, and my Mum just happened to take my three-year-old for an hour, so I moseyed on in! At first I felt like I was never going to find anything, and certainly the kids section seemed to have been picked clean, but then I kept thinking of things I'd been looking for. Bumped into a few old friends and had a pleasant old natter, and then, right at the end, I found myself in the crockery section. I've decided I love vintage teacups (hardly a novel idea, but who cares?), especially with an accent of orange. I trawled through the pricier stuff and this is what I found:


Look - that chip on the platter happened as I lifted the bag off the counter - I heard something go crunch and that was it. What a total bugger, cos I probably like that and the teacup the most. Oh well. Around twenty bucks for all that... not bad.

In other news, I have been making stuff, believe me! I've been working mainly on my hat, lovely Noro yarn with this IK short row pattern. Almost done, to the point where I might as well take a photo when it's all done, rather than right now...

And in other news, I'm having my wisdom teeth out next Tuesday. I am remarkably calm about this, having met the friendly oral surgeon (his discreet Irish accent is quite soothing!) and sussed it all out today. He had a cancellation, that's why it's all happening so quickly, but I figure, why not get it over and done with! Any tips for surviving the aftermath??

Good luck with your wisdom teeth, I had mine done in the chair and when I woke up I had one of those seinfeld moments where I am sure the dentist and nurse were talking about me....

Then mum drove me to her house, took my car keys so I couldnt go home and I had to stay for days.

Im not sure what was worse. The pain or my mum. But in saying that I did manage to eat biscuits that afternoon. Nothing can stop me I tell you, not when it comes to biscuits.

Oh ! I like to spend the aftermath of any dentist visit on the couch wrapped in a cocoon-like quilt, on my own with perhaps one loyal servant bringing me tea - I am not good at the dentist but I do like the sound of your guy with the accent....
Hope it goes well.
