WOW…How can you resist!

Hi guys…If you are stuck for somewhere to go tommorow…then check out my favourite Sale of the Century (apart from ours of course!)…last time I was very selfish and never shared the details of this fantastic sale…but I am a little sad this weekend, as I have just said goodbye to my lovely son Daz…we left him in Canterbury today…he has gone to University and it has affected me more than I thought it would! Sniff Sniff! (I will miss him sooo much!) So I thought I would do a good deed and cheer all of us Mums & Dads up that have had to say goodbye this weekend to their sons and daughters, who are going to Uni….by letting you all know the whereabouts of this wonderful place…as letting you all know this, once secret, piece of information will put a smile on my face!….Just look at the scrumptious antiques and collectables in my pictures…make sure you find time to visit our wonderful friends Maddie and Margaret and pick up a few bargains along with some tea and cake! Enjoy!Look at these lovely Union Jack cushions…..I bought mine at the Country Living fair for £75.00 but M & M have them for £30.00 – £45.00…such a bargain for such an English Home Essential!You must check out this place…the weather is going to be gorgeous….and there are plenty of bargains to be had here…all in the delightful setting of ‘The Old Rectory’….if you do get to go…make sure you comment back and let us know what you bought…it will definitely cheer me up!Heres the details…..Just click on the picture…to see the address card in more detail…..Oh and remember to tell Maddie and Margaret where you see the advert!See you there!…Love Happy x

    hello, I have been checking into your blog for some time and I'm loving it. Just painted my 'sewing room' (lucky me after son number 3 moved out) cath k blue with ikea red shelves, polka dot curtains… Anyways, i missed the sale because i was taking one of my own baby boys to uni (falmouth, such a long way away) so I sympathise big time. i cant pick up the address of m & m's from your blog for next time's extravaganza so could you send email me the address, please?Thanks so much, keep your pecker up – whatever that means, kate x

    I’m sorry you got upset sweetie, It is hard to let them go, I feel the same every other weekend when I have to let my oldest daugther go back to live with my ex-husband, heart breaking everytime. But I smile and let her see I’m fine and cry on my own later.I had a fabulous time at the vintage sale, hop on over the my blog and see all the loveliness I picked up. We’re very tempted by a book case but will wait and make appointment to see it later in the month. So pleased they do that, would be lovely to look at all the other bits and peices without anyone else around.Yummy cakes and coffee and Jade fell in love with the union jack cushions, I’m geting her one from Maddie for Christmas. Beautiful place I could of stayed all day and gone back today if I could drive :(Looking forward to the pre-christmas one yeay! I’ll have early birthday money for that one lolHope your feeling better today.Hugs,Catherine x

    It is hard when they go, we’ve been through all five of ours now! Such a great experience for them though and be assured they WILL be back on a frequent basis. Your secret place looks wonderful but alas too far from me. Shall look out for what other people find there!!

    It looks a fab sale, and I’d dash there if I could. What a shame. Still, I’m still so much in love with my goodies from you, so I’m very happy. The kiddies use the bean bag every day, and the screen sits between my sewing corner and my hubbie’s pooter. Perfect!I love your posts, and I’ve been missing you. It’s fab to know you’re still posting.No wonder you’re feeling sad. I can’t imagine what it’s like, but I’ll face this in a few years time. You’ve done so well by him. Give yourself a huge pat on the back. Big hugs. Caroline x

    Too far! Too far! Oh woe is me! (wailing like a victorian mimsy – sorry not the correct response!)Hope your boy quickly settles into freshers! Of course he’ll be back with laundry soon! And then after 3 short years of calm he’ll be back with a student loan the size of a small mortgage! Enjoy the moment! πŸ™‚ t.xx
