Monday, Monday (ba-ra ba-ra da-da).....

Hello lovely people!  
I'm feeling tip toppy today after having a lovely weekend away in this bonny wee cottage down Selkirk way in the Borders.

Lots of tea, knitting, magazine and novel reading, jigsaws, charity and needlecraft shops, Baxters for soup and bread, cake and coffee and MORE shopping.  
Wine and
Fun Fun Fun!

Here's some of the goodies I got.......from the coolest wee needlecraft shop where we could barely move for stuff, jam packed with everything you could ever need....I had a blast.

The tin is my favourite, only four pounds fifty and filled with Gutermanns thread.

 From the local Red Cross charity shop...


and a mug that reminded me of the Good Life.

From Baxters......

and lots of Deans Shortbread and bits and pieces from the cookware shop.
Sunday lunch on the way home, Antiques Roadshow and crochet.
Even though I have a busy week ahead and my Eldest is on the sofa poorly I'm feeling pretty good, relaxed and happy!

Going away for a weekend can be a real tonic!
