Hijacked

This is what happens at my house when somebody (who is extremely impatient) wants his dinner. It also must be Kit-e-Kat Chicken Chunks in Gravy as he won't eat anything else.

Anyway, after the interruption, I was trying to photograph todays oppy finds....

I spent most of the day in the car with my mum, but we did have time for a little opping on our travels.

I found a new op shop today (new to me - not new new) at the Sunshine Hospital. That's where I found the lovely orange cup and saucer set. They're a bit stained and grubby, so I have them soaking at the moment. They will look lovely in my bookcase. I think they were $4 for the set.

In the afternoon, I was going to get stuck in traffic at a level crossing, so I took a detour to one of the local Salvos shops (ok - I would have only had to wait about three minutes for the train to pass, but it was as good an excuse as any).

I headed straight for the big basket of doilies, and sorted through them all. I didn't find any that were perfectly suited for my brooches, but I picked out a few to experiment with anyway. On the way out, I spotted the little brown oven dish - it's the perfect size for a meal for one!

I had a cat who would only eat chicken mince in gravy... except she just licked off the gravy and left the mince. Whenever her brand was on special at the supermarket, all the chicken & gravy tins sold out immediately. It must be every cat's favourite.

Now I feel all happy remembering my dear cat.

awww so cute! He's gorgeous! I love the spot near his mouth!! Typical cats. So fussy. Amazing that they've trained us to get them what they want instead of us training them to eat what they're given. One of our cats has to have the cat meat you buy in wollies in the cold section. The roo mince. And now one of the fostor cats has taken to it as well. And they only like the fish whisket biscuits. And one just adores the fresh fish we bring home on occasion.
Great finds!! I found 2 gorgeous bowls today, 20 cents each!! They're just beautiful, and microwave and dishwasher safe, which is what I wanted. They're soaking too!! lol

There's a new op shop opening around the corner from my place tomorrow. I'll have to go and check it out.

Love your gorgeous finds. And you know I've got a soft spot for the man of the house!!!
