We took a stroll to the Church Tea Rooms, below the National Trust house Hughenden Manor, mentioned in my last post. The church tea rooms are only open on Sundays and Bank Holidays
This is the inside but we normally sit outside when it's not miserable... here's a photo from last year!!
There's a fantastic 18th Century grandfather clock with a rather morbid rhyme on the face

On the way back we passed the cows guarding cow island (it's more of a peninsular)
I also updated my postcard blog with what I bought last week
Take a look!
Postcard with rare diagonal stamped which is code for "do you love me?"
Today was the St Augustine's May Fayre, it's a Catholic church so there's often a few crucifixes, statuettes of Jesus and other ephemera. I got a great picture of John Paul II there once and it now hangs in my toilet.
The weather today was dreadful, it barely stopped raining. Again it didn't stop me buying things
We queued for cheap burgers
A small cabinet - £1! Looks 30s-50s

There were quite a few ladybird books but they weren't fantastic condition and I'm running out of space. Cinderella was a particular childhood fave as was The Enormous Turnip. I know Little Owl ski and Vintage Jane would love these

There was lots of cheap cakes. Mike's in a cake coma now watching boobs on "Carry On Girls"
I'm in a 70s mood music-wise
