Tynemouth in the sun!

The weather has been fab all day today...spent the day at Tynemouth for the first time in ages with the boys and Karen and talk of work or GCSE and A'levels for the first time in eons........soooo nice....the boys had a fab time!

Then i went to Tynemouth market and bought a job lot of 'Once Upon a time' magazines for children from the late 60's early 70's.......sooooo lovely....what am I going to do with thinking of the prints on bags / t-shirts / aprons etc...they are so fantastic....I just get myself wrapped up in the whole - who kept them for 40 years as a memory, then someone gave them away - i think im a hoarder and i would hate my stuff to be discarded so flipantly.........i will have to do them juistice!!!
