More Friday finds

Today I found 2 things I've been on the look out for.....both from the same place.

Only one of them could be man-handled by me into the car.

Cost $20

Despite all the rain we've been getting, I just had to see if it would work

There was much excitement among the small people, one with a rake, one with a wheelbarrow

In all the "excitement" I forgot I was wearing suede boots

The other Friday find will have to be collected on Monday.

Sometimes it really does feel that if I wait long enough I eventually find what I 'need' second-hand. It is a good feeling.

Great find! I was looking for a second hand push mower for months and finaly gave up and bought a new one (but i guess $100 is still better than 100's for a petrol mower). Have fun. i was pleasantly surprised by how well ours works.

Well done. No noise, no pollution, no petrol to buy, no breakdowns, less storage, exercise, need I go on?

Michelle said...

Great score! I love my flymo, use it all the time. I love the whirly sound it makes.

What a coincidence! My MIL bought a push mower from a local op-shop just this week! She'll no doubt use it too, she's too independent to wait for someone to come cut the lawns for her.

I'd love one of those. I don't dare cut the grass with Chloe around as she hates even the noise of my hairdryer.

Been meaning to pop by and thank you for the lovely, supportive comment you made about my mothering worries but got sooo tired. So now, even though it's late, thanks!

That grass is so lush and green! A fantastic find especially when the kids are joining in on the fun too.

Those boots look like a great find. I love when the kids are of the age where helping is still fun.
