First thing this morning I received a text from Beckah my future daughter in law asking if I fancied meeting them for breakfast. After meeting up with them for breakfast and then a bit of a wander around Guisborough, Tony and I headed home to find a leaflet for a 'country store' in the mail box. A quick turn around and we headed out to see if the bargains were as good as the leaflet suggested. We come home with multi purpose compost.. BOGOF. Paint for the potential new shed, a couple of new bird feeders and two bags of 'coal' briquettes for the wood burner. Then a quick visit to our favourite farm shop to pick up a tray of eggs. These eggs are 'seconds' due to the mottling and marks on the shells.. Cost for thirty free range eggs.. £2.50. This afternoon we really do need to get the house tidied up. Emptying the garage into the conservatory and the food cupboard into bags and every available space has made the house look like a bomb hit a food factory.
While in Guisborough I bought two bamboo toothbrushes and some bamboo cotton buds. If we like them I will never buy a plastic toothbrush or cotton bud again.
