this and that

yup - we bbq'd today!!! can you tell we're british?! it was sunny here, warm but not hot so we grabbed the opportunity! the weather here seems to be awful 80% off the time so we gotta enjoy every last bit of sunshine! also, we made a quick visit to my favourite charity shop today, and picked up a few bargains - including a cute owl teapot!! i was so happy to spy him - it's not often i find something as good as that!
