I'm easing myself nicely into my week off, starting yesterday with a sisters thrifting adventure into the Tyrone countryside. At the recent vintage fair I got chatting to some lovely ladies from another stall who told me about a car boot sale in Granville near Dungannon, I COULDN'T wait to go!! Granville holds a fair every weekend, although each week it varies, lifestock, machinery etc but on the 3rd Saturday of every month it holds a car boot and poultry fair, two things I love!
My own car boot cleared, I pick up Bob and we beat down the road to Dungannon. It was an absolutely gorgeous day yesterday, a day for the beach, for lying in the garden topping up the freckles or the perfect day for a really good car boot sale!
I highly recommend this boot sale, not even for what's on sale but just for the pure craic! There were so many characters! And if it's a farmer you're after this could be the perfect place to find your man, all dirty jeans, hands like shovels and weather tanned skin!
Five minutes in and Bob and I had reverted back to our broad Portadown accents "Wud ye luk a thon, there's a quer size of a b'ast" translation "Look at the size of that large animal" It's the effect the countryside has on us! We started fantasising about leaving the city, living on a farm and making jam with a ferret as a pet, must have been the country air getting to us! City folk are so different!
|In another attempt to get this photo there was another singing farmer trying to ninja jump into the picture!|
|The craic was ninety with these two|
|I wanted a photo of a young farmer holding this cockerel but he was too shy instead he just let the beast out, mistake! it really didn't want to go back in|
An excellent adventure and a great day out had by all! Resting today, going to make scones and do some sewing : )
Bye for now have a lovely Sunday everyone xx
