|This has to be THE most hideous picture of yours truly I've seen in a very long time. Never mind, we're all friends here aren't we!|
Ooh I do like a good May Day event. Mr Unicorn and his fellow Morris dancers:
Garland Girls from Chesterfield and their lovely embroidered aprons:
Shame that the bric-a-brac stalls weren't up too much. Mind you, Little Miss J and P struck lucky on the tombola. Look what she came away with:
Well, it has to be better than the tin of sliced carrots which was the last tombola prize I won! Little Miss was very disgruntled, though, as you can imagine. The slippers fit neither me nor Mr J and P so they'll be going in a charity shop bag and I'm sure they'll make someone very happy.
We had a fabulous time in Derbyshire. We went for a walk in Dovedale which is very lovely but was very busy. Look at the amount of people wanting to go across the stepping stones:
There was even some art we could admire as we strolled along:
Mr and Little Miss J and P sitting on a tree trunk across a river. This made me very nervous I can tell you.
There was even some climbing to be had. Not by me, though, I like to be on terra firma, myself (preferably on a pavement, and ideally just about to enter a charity shop - that's my kind of terra firma!).

There wasn't a great deal of bargain finding while we were away (bargain hunting, oh yes, but no finding). We went to a massive car boot sale near Matlock but I didn't get a sausage. Very disappointing. However, the previous week, we were in Cumbria, visiting Grandpappy J and P and I did manage to bag two pairs of 70s curtains at £1.99 a pair from a charity shop.
Feel free to salivate over these:

Magnifique n'est pas? Better than a silly old pair of memory foam slippers doncha think?
On a final note, I went to a whole THREE jumble sales last weekend. Here is just a little teasing picture of my haul (posing with my previous buys namely the basket and Fortnum & Mason hamper).
See you next time, dear readers when I shall reveal all in delicious detail. TTFN. xx
