The lucky/unlucky equilibrium has been restored

I'm taking some time out from the sun to show you my charity shop finds from an afternoon spent in Ballymena yesterday. Yesterday we had glorious sunshine, I got out of work at half one but I had to hang around until half 5 because a lady was meeting me to pick up an item the big lad is selling on Gumtree, any way to cut a long story short I was trying to get in contact with her to see if she could meet me earlier when I dropped my phone and it landed face down and smashed the screen FAIL!! I couldn't get in contact so instead I went for a mooch in Ballymena. Ballymena has excellent charity shops (read about another adventure here) I'm walking around in my black work uniform in 26 degree heat so ducking in and out of the charity shops seems like the perfect way to cool down, right? I found so many things and couldn't resist...I'm sure you'll understand why......

PHEW.....Too many hours, a lot of charity shops and an ice cream later, I'm still in Ballymena, I head back to meet the lady and SHE'S A NO SHOW!!
Broken phone, lady doesn't show up/ amazing thrifty finds and getting pooed on today in the garden.....I think the lucky/unlucky equilibrium has been restored.....Everything as it should be once again.
Hope you're all enjoying this glorious twelfth xxx


  1. Great finds - especially the books.

  2. Yes I think balance is back! Great scores. Especially love the mugs.. Op shopping always a good way to pass time! Bummer about the phone, the poo and the no show!

  3. I bought a Hornsea Saffron cannister from yesterday's jumble, we're twins! x

    1. Haha! twinnies! I love the pattern on them, I'm planning a kitchen makeover, they'll be perfect!
