I've been so busy, rushing backwards and forwards, and this weekend the Old Man tried desperately to recapture his youth by heading up to Manchester to see the Stone Roses.
Leaving us home alone, we headed out on Saturday to Harpenden to see a kids show at the theatre (can't help thinking I drew the short straw here...)
Anyway, en route from the station to the venue, there are several charity shops. It being the most expensive town in the UK to live (I read that somewhere, not sure if it's true) they do have rather good chazza shops.
The first one yeilded loads of children's books and toys, and helpfully they agreed to hold on to them for us to collect on our way home.
Heading back after the show, we returned to pick up our purchases and I spotted a beautiful pair of large glass lanterns in the window.
I probably paid a little more than I should, but it was too late - I'd already fallen in love. £15 for the 2, what do you reckon? Including the candles!
