So much for "nothing stopping me" going to Thursday's car boot sale. Faced with fog so thick we couldn't see the door step and a sickly cat, all plans for a rummage got put on hold for a mercy dash to the vets.
The poor lad suffers with sensitive skin and after an injection and course of steroids he's almost back to his naughty old self already.
Not to worry though, we made do with a trip to town instead and I managed to snaffle this 1960s Welsh Tweed cap, big enough to fit my massive head (and all my hair, too).
Looks like I'm in good company, too. Here's some cool 1960s chicks in similarly floppy caps.

Contrary to what you might think, it's not all shopping and dressing up around here.Last night, just by way of a change, I made an exhibit of myself.
Liz, her Mum and brother have an art exhibition on and we popped in to the opening which was a roaring success, Liz even sold a painting (but not the one of me). I thought I'd give the Edwardian-does-the-1970s maxi Terri sent me an outing.
We're being good this weekend and keeping the booze to a minimum in readiness for Sunday's vintage fair. We will be out in town just not as badly behaved as we usually are (famous last words).
I've finally got round to setting up a Facebook page & I'll pimping my wares over on there until our website goes live in 2013. If you see anything that takes your fancy just let me know. Our merchandise is just like us, well over 25 years old, cheap and cheerful.

See you soon.
