Blog2008 ≫ Nice weekend, quiet weekend

Nice weekend. Changed our Friday night outgoing plans and had a quiet one in. Saturday went to a 92nd birthday tea for Clare's gran over in Tenterden, home for a brief siesta, and then out to The Guildhall with visiting family and friends. Took a brief break from there to go to The British Lion before its last orders (it closes a bit earlier), then back to The Guildhall for their last orders. Then home, in the drizzle.

Felt a bit sniffly when I woke up on Sunday, could be that damn rain, but fine again now. Went to a bootfair, did the shopping, ate, watched TV and even played a bit of Scrabble. All quite relaxing.

Threw in a few mad bids for this apothecary cabinet1 but there are fellow bidders who are staying one step ahead of me. It's gone up in price but is still currently listed at about 10% of its retail price.

When we got married we bought some [ebay=john lewis bergerac]Bergerac furniture from John Lewis[/ebay], two book cases, and I thought we'd eventually buy just this. It's very expensive, and a bit chunky, and now they discontinued it anyway. We bought a sideboard, that turned out to be a slightly different colour to the bookcases, ah well. I think we're better off with lighter furniture (lighter in colour, and in generallyless heavy feeling in sheer presence), but it's still lovely stuff.
