Special Purchase, Stamps and Curtains

10 Jul

In Redruth Market on Saturday there was a new stall – the Year 4 pupils from our local Primary School had been busy making Strawberry Jam and Red Onion Marmalade. They were a delight to talk to and were very good sales-people.

I read in the paper that the Post Office were to issue new stamps celebrating various festivals around the country. One they have featured is Padstow’s ‘Obby ‘Oss.

I visited the event a couple of years. If you’d like to read about it, here is the link.

We have some fabulous new curtains for our bedroom. They are very dramatic and have blackout linings which should mean that we don’t wake at dawn!

    We have black out curtains and I wouldn’t be without them now. Ours were here when we arrived and need replacing. I’ve avoided looking as I expected to find nothing much different to the rather dull and dowdy pair we have. You’ve given me hope – yours look very smart!

    Beautiful curtains. Mine are white and don’t keep the sun out at all but I’m afraid if I went with black out curtains I would sleep too long.
