It was a National Holiday here yesterday, and luckily the rain stopped just in time for us to go to a big local 'Boot Sale'.
There was mostly a load of old rubbish, intermingled amongst an excessive amount of tasteless plastic childrens' things, but we did manage to find a couple of 'bargains'.
The 3 Ricard glasses are unusually small and attractive, and cost a staggering €1 (bottle of Ricard not included), and the big heavy cast iron pulley cost €10; the idiot was asking €25, I offered €5, we agreed on €10.
The pulley will go to make a long rope slide, between two trees, for the boys. And the glasses will be used by Grumpy for whilst he watches over them... of course.
p.s. I'm happy to add that I was able to rotovate Haddock's in the afternoon. I planted out Sprouts, Purple Sprouting Broccoli, Swiss Chard, and Curly Kale. Only Beans, Tomatoes, and Leeks to go in now.
