Life is really full of different seasons, not just four. We are in the dull or mundane season. There is nothing exciting or so happening. Still, there are highlights and we are grateful to still be alive and kicking. We love sharing each week about the highlights as it helps us to quantify some of the things we are grateful for. Last week we had quite a lot on our plates so we didn’t get to share. We even still like reading about what others got up to.
This week we went into a charity shop on our walk and we found three things that we need and which will come in handy. One is a large heavy-bottomed stainless steel pot. The one we generally use for making soup had to be discarded as the two handles broke off and also the handle on the lid. Don’t ask me how that happened or why we were still using it. We got that pan for £4.99.
We also found a set of containers and markers for starting seeds indoors or in a greenhouse. Leisa spotted that one and at first we weren’t sure what it was but the man in the charity shop explained and she got the whole set for £1.
Our best find was a brand new tripod that can extend up to 7ft! We couldn’t believe our eyes. It was marked at £10 but then we noticed that there was a red line going across the price. When we asked what that meant, they explained that it was now half price. So we got this brand new extendable tripod for £5. We do have a tripod but it is quite heavy and bulky. We paid £178 for it, based on the recommendation from another YouTuber. We like that the charity shop one is lightweight and folds down into a little case so it’s easy to take with us even when we go on holiday.
When was the last time you went into a charity shop? And what was your most recent purchase there?
Two weeks ago we wrote that Spring has sprung. Well, I’m not sure what’s up with that but around here the weather has been rubbish. Most days this week, we woke up to icy cars! The sun shone beautifully for two days though. By the time we gathered up the stuff to cut the lawn, the rain came. Well, if you can’t beat them, then join them. So we have resigned to wait until it’s definitely Spring and nicer weather for garden pursuits. We still have some of those free wild flower garden seeds that we plan to use up.
As things were so ‘poco poco’, we went out and bought ourselves flowers to brighten the mood and also to bring in some fresh Spring vibes. I made two bouquets from the flowers and they did help to cheer us up a bit.
Talking about cheer, has anyone watched the series Cheer on Netflix? We watched season one during the lockdown and then recently I’ve been watching season two. Well, this week, I watched the final episode and I cried! It was so emotional and on so many levels! It comes highly recommended if you like young people, sports, competitions, and seeing the interactions between people. And oh, I won’t give away the best part, which happened in the final episode.
Well, there goes our weekly roundup💕. We hope that you had a lovely week too, and remain grateful for all that you have and get to experience. We are on the lookout for travel destinations that leave from Birmingham airport so do keep us posted if you hear of anything.
