I didn't sleep well last night. We had had a viewing yesterday and last night I lay in bed worrying and fretting over how long it will take to sell the house and all sorts of associated problems. I was awake for about 4 hours and felt like death warmed up this morning, which made us late away to the boot sale. Anyway, it was still worthwhile as I got some John D Wood blue and white china in the "Yuan" pattern I collect - 6 cups and saucers, and 5 side plates for £3. I also found four books which came home with me - Henry Williamson's treatise on Richard Jefferies; Crafts from the Countryside by John L Jones, and best of all - one I'd wanted ever since I was doing my degree - The Settlements of the Celtic Saints in Wales by E G Bowen . . . I also got a craft book Decorating with Fabric Crafts, an American book which has some interesting ideas in it.
I also seem to have done a bit of Cosmic Ordering as my OH and I were discussing calling our builder (for advice) who specializes in restoring old houses and working with lime and other natural ecological substances such as hemp etc. We got back from the car boot sale, and blow me down, but he was out in our top field, metal detecting! Apart from meeting up in Tesco's in the run up to Christmas, we hadn't seen him for years . . . We had a lovely chat (all afternoon!) and got worries sorted out. Hopefully I will sleep better tonight.
I'm still on D's laptop . . .
