Would you....?

When you're sitting, minding your own business, having a quiet moment to yourself ...
and there's a sudden text message from your friend, Jane...
and it says....

'Do you fancy a trip to Ashburton tomorrow morning?'

What would be your answer?

Would it be...

a) I can't, I have to do the ironing!

b) I can't, I have to feed the chickens !

c) Sorry, no way, I have to wash my hair!

d) Can't do tomorrow, having a lie in!

e) Cooking a salad, sorry!

f) Sorry, blogging all morning!
g) Have to hoover the whole house!

h) No sorry, re organising my kitchen cupboards.

i) Can't tear myself away from the telly, sorry!

j) Servicing the car so can't come along with you.

k) Have 6 books to read so apologies can't make it!

l) My husband won't let me! (Some hope ;!)

m) I'm visiting the dentist!

n) hairdressers!

o) Nah,don't feel like it!

p) Got to spring clean,sorry!

q) I have to wait in for a parcel!

r) I must mow the lawns!
Naturally, my answer was returned in a flash!!
And that is why, yesterday, I was allowed a free wander with my camera in
The Vintage Emporium!
Sarah always says, 'Go for it!' So I did!
As I was, 'Going for it!' guess who walked in?
Amanda! That girl gets everywhere! ;-)
Next door, is Odds and Suds and I managed to catch Jenny (and ask her about her brilliant
time with Kirsty!!)
Soapy suddy photos of Odds and Suds next week!
By the time I got to 'The Snug', my batteries had conked out (well..the camera's had and mine were flagging!) so I will make a special visit again to bring you some of Ros's goodies.
However...she said that, amazingly, I had just missed a certain blogger's sister!
So, if you are reading this and your sister was in Ashburton yesterday, let me know..although I
am pretty sure that I know whose sis it was!
Now to do all those jobs!

Lucky you to have such lovely shopping (and snapping) opportunities close by! I'm not suprised your batteries conked out!

I think you made the right decision! Looks like you and your friend had a fantastic time! Thanks for sharing all the photos.

Julie said...

ha, that was funny. So glad you seized the moment and went for it, there's always another day for all those to-dos (although, personally, i'd always make time for reading as well!), looks like a gorgeous shop - what fab photos, and more to come as well.

Hi Sal,
How funny, Hubby and I were in Ashburton last weekend - weekend for us these days being Sunday and Monday - which did mean that sadly Sarah's new vintage shop was closed, and that it was Ros's partner running The Snug, not Ros herself :( But we still had lots of fun and managed to find some treasures...

My weekend start now, so I'm off to enjoy a relaxing evening and its the flea tomorrow... Have a lovely Sunday too,
Niki x
