What a nightmare of a day I had yesterday!
I dragged my poor other half around no less than 8 shops and one market looking for some jubilee bunting - everywhere had sold out! And they reckon people are against the monarchy and don't care about the jubilee?
I was even laughed at by one of the assistants in one of the shops I went into 'we sold out of that the day it came in!' he said as he shuffled off to re-stock the crisps.
After three hours in town (and two horrible blisters later) I came home in a bit of a grump. I wanted to put ups some bunting!
So sod it...I made some!
Now it's not pretty bunting, but I should get some points for effort I think!
I cannot draw, sketch or colour for toffee. I just can't. But in my fit of need for tri-coloured Jubilee decorations I cracked out the crayons and started drawing!
And here are my bunting pieces!
Then I simply popped holes in each corner and strung them up on some wool.
No measuring, no faffing - just crayon drawn flags on card attached to wool. Sorted.
And you know what? I cannot see any other flags or bunting anywhere in my neighbourhood...so who the heck bought it all??
