HI HO! HI HO! Its back to work I go...

Well who'd have thought that having waited 43 years to retire I would land up back as an employee before I've even had time to practice being a grumpy old woman. There was I fondly eyeing up those CK and Orla shopping trolleys to get my own back for years of bruised shins and ankles when my daughters employee suddenly gets pregnant. What's more I volunteered!!

Seriously though today has only been my 3rd day and it's not at all as bad as I imagined. Even got DH cooking dinner! Now that's a bonus.

I've decided to be very philosophical about my depleted free time though, more money means more shopping and collecting and visiting charity shops (doing my bit there, but have to confess I always feel the winner when I find some treasure) and of course more car boots and collectible fairs, and since these are usually visited at weekends I think I can cope. Talking of lovely treasures I have put a couple of pictures of some of my latest finds over on the side. A collection of goodies to display in my kitchen and a piece of nostalgia to frame. I have lots more and will take some more piccies later.

Bye for now
