Never Again … maybe

Yesterday I got up at 3:30am (yes AM) to go to Brisbane with the parentals to a swap meet. I wasn’t feeling the best as I had indulged in a bit too much wine that night but was looking forward to all the potential goodies that could be coming home with me. It was still dark when we got there.

Anyway, let’s just say I was the mayor of disappointment town. All I managed to pick up was a XXXX beer tray for the boy’s collection and a couple of items of clothing. I got up at 3:30am for that?! Crazy I know but you win some, and you lose some. Unfortunately I lost about 5 hours sleep. At least mum and dad got some stuff. So who knows if this has put me off. Maybe it has, maybe it hasn’t.

Oh and we did manage to go to the car boot sale on Saturday only to find it had been cancelled due to the horrible rainy weather we’ve been having for the last week or so. Not cool. We visited a few other garage sales and got a couple of things. I also had the pleasure of taking a workmate down to Vinnies on Friday. She picked up a cute pink scarf (perfect for the 10 degree weather we are having) and said she’d love to join me again on my thrifting adventures! Yay, I love an op shop convert!

Heading to the Gold Coast this coming weekend. Have already mentioned to the boy that I’d love to stop at the Lifeline warehouse near Harbourtown. I’ve only been there twice and you have to do quite a bit of digging but here’s hoping he has the patience to let me look.

Pics of what I picked up last week will be up soon.

Over and Out XOXO
