Where did May go to?
One of my favourite months passed by quicker than a rat up the proverbial drainpipe.
Work and home-life have been keeping me busy and although I kept meaning to blog I felt that I didn't have much to write about, so blogging activities were relegated to the 'pending' part of my brain.
But I'm back with a post about yesterday's trip to one of my favourite shopping destinations: Malvern Flea Market in the Three Counties Showground, nestled beneath the impressive Malvern Hills.
Husband was on look-out for some garden chairs and having disregarded the modern ones available (.."too expensive, prefer something old"...) decided on hunting out some 'Lloyd Loom' ones instead.
|Monkeychild and Husband hot on the trail of 'old stuff'|
After a quick recce of the Market he found three Loom chairs dating from the 1940s. Before resuming our browsing, we trooped back to the car looking like a family of nutters, each carrying a chair over our heads; but as I said to Monkeychild, "Its better to be quirky than boring!".

I even had to walk away from this old gas cooker. I like these. A lot.
I did think that one would look great in the summerhouse and would be practical too, once overhauled and running off a gas bottle. Husband was not impressed in the slightest.
Oh well, I did buy a 1970s 'Worcester Ware' tray...
Not much really. However, I was outdone by Monkeychild who used her pocket money to buy some more bottles to add to her collection.
Back home after Malvern, we chilled out in the orchard with a few beers (ginger beer for Monkeychild) in our new old chairs and very comfy they are too.
