But today there was no lazing about for me - I was up and off with Dad on a mission. Dave's grandmother is talking about selling her house, so she and Dave's Mom are going through the place and cleaning out anything that's longer needed. She had a beautiful pine dining set that is older than Dave - apparently it was his favourite place to play with his dinky cars, and it's been long-promised to him.
It's now brightening up our dining room, though I'd really love a proper country kitchen to put it in... one day...
As it's more than 40 years old, it's covered in little nicks and scratches, or as Dad says "character".
Of course, being a typical grandma, she had to throw in a few extras - a table cloth, a pile of place mats, and four trivets
I haven't seen one of these since I was a kid!
And now I've got a pork roast in the oven, for a nice dinner on our first meal at the new table!
