Good evening everyone. I too hope you all had a good day because I had a very good and profitable day. Well A couple of our friends picked us up at hope at 9.30 we all went off to a car boot sale at a local church. I don't buy many but I always check out any CDs lying around. Well first of all I came across an Eric Clapton cd for a pound of course it was one I hadn't got. Then from another table I found Three Jazz CD boxed sets one was a two disc Count Basie set for 50p - A three CD Dave Brubeck set for 50p - and a Four CD Jazz compilation again for 50p. I was well pleased, Ten CDs altogether for £2.50 and all quality music. Then we went into the church hall for a cuppa and a Bacon Bap then I spotted on the floor by a table a Cast Iron Umberella stand I picked that up for £10. I have looked on the Internet and found one for £120. I am sure ours may be a more modern copy but it does the job in our porch and it looks good. Then we went to Kingsbury Water Park. I didn't know that place was so good. We spent a good couple of hours there and then we went to Melbicks Wyvale Garden Centre where we had lunch and We picked up a Rubber Plant for a tenner, a really nice quality one. We have been looking for ages. All in all a damn good day.
