Days 14 and 15

Whilst browsing the shelves of the new Poundland store in town yesterday I popped this plastic spinning toy into the basket. It proved good fun when the children played with it in the park a little later. Although it did get stuck up in the trees twice we did manage to go home with all the bits in tact!

The reason we went into town was because I had read that there was going to be a display of classic cars. There were about 60 cars and it was the older curvier ones which I loved the most. The blue of this car was just so perfect.

There were quite a few different Morris Minor cars, this soft top certainly caught our eye.

I would love one of these so much, I can just imagine packing up a picnic and setting off on a jaunt to either the country or seaside.

No jokes about how I look like the back of the end bus standing next to the front end of this fabulous old Routemaster bus!

This photo just makes me want to start singing 'We're all going on a Summer Holiday.........'

I couldn't see any information about this Austin taxi, but what caught my eye even more than the car was the trunk and it's accompanying label. Hopefully of you click the photo you can enlarge it to read the details of the voyage it went on in 1949 on the Cunard White Star line.


Well, this car is automatic, it's systematic, it's

Why it's Greased Lightnin'!

Today the weather has been either very sunny and warm or cool and very rainy. Whilst the rain was pouring we played cards and did some dancing games on the Wii. When the sun shone we played outside and a bit of artwork was painted on the path with liquid sidewalk chalk.

S's fireworks

and my tulip.

I shall be adding cornflour and food colouring to the shopping list as I think we'll be doing this again.


  1. we popped into a classic car show too this weekend. great the sun came out this weekend xxx

  2. I LOVE Routemasters, I always had to sit in the same seat when I was a little girl or I'd get very upset! Nice to see this one had Camberwell on it's list of stops, where I was born.

  3. Those classic vehicles are fab. What a great idea to have outdoor painting!

  4. I love Morris Travellers - my Uncle had one and I remember going out in it when I was very little.

    We've had sunshine and torrential showers today - more of the same promised for tomorrow :(

  5. What lovely cars, I love Morris Minors too there is just something about them.

    It looks like you are making the most of our very tempermental summer! We managed a good walk and the girls got a good run about in adventure playground too today. Although there was rain! lol

  6. The liquid chalk sounds like fun! Sounds like you've made the most of another day!
