It's that time of year again; our annual school jumble sale was held on Saturday, and another fine event it was too.
It wouldn't be the same if we didn't dress up in vintage housecoats, pinnies and scarves, bright colours, and maybe a wig or two.
Here I am with my buddies Trace, Karen and Joanne, and Claudia too, who is a junior member of the Jumble Sisterhood. She always helps, and likes to listen to the traditional debrief held round at Karen's house afterwards, which gets louder, sillier and more scurrilous as the prosecco goes down...
We call it the PJP; Post-Jumble Piss-Up, best part of the day!
Claudia wants you to know she's not wild about Harry.
1970s Indian cotton wrap maxi skirt, shoes, necklace and bangles - charity shopped
Vest and sequin top - jumble sale
We made £1,130, and we're delighted with that.
It may well be the last jumble we organise, so it was good to go out on a high. I've been helping to plan and run fund-raising events at school for the last five years, and I think I've reached my limit.
Time to move on and leave the new members of the PTA to do things their way.
I did buy some bits and bobs at the jumble sale, various clothes for the kids, and these for me;
1960-70s Nimbus design fabric by Osman textiles
mad-eyed Dutch souvenir dolls
1960s pink wool blanket
1960s tapestry and vinyl shopper
1970s Sadler pot
After a full-on day yesterday, it was good to do very little today. Reading in the bath in the afternoon is one of life's small pleasures.
So is linking up with Patti for Visible Monday - come and join us!
I hope your weekend has been successful, whatever you've been doing.
