This is the view I had on the train back from my weekend of mild debauchery with Lauren Alice (when I say mild, we did some sewing, ate fit food, watched Disney films & the crime channel on Saturday night and then hit up car boots sales on the Sunday – something I am banned from).
My gorgeous new-to-me military style foot locker was full of dust and old shreds of paper when Lauren and I spotted it next to pile of vinyls, almost tucked away under a wallpaper table full of junk (that I am sure I needed to buy also).
I gasped and literally hit the deck to check it out. It had the original key and everything!
I had to buy it.
I tried my hardest to look uninterested after I had eaten grass to get a better look. I just fell over…honestly…. The woman behind the table wasn’t fooled. £20.
I bit my lip….yes I wanted it that badly….and I knew it would have cost much more in a little boutique somewhere.
I scrabbled in my purse….and then scrabbled in Laurens. How did I not go to the cashpoint before coming to a car boot?! ROOKIE MISTAKE.
We managed to get £17.50 together, and with the help of ‘desperate face’ I managed to secure the EKS box.
I cleaned it up with the help of our hoover and a bit of soapy water, and then finally treated some of the more serious rust with some of P’s magic rust-be-gone stuff that he uses on Gladys (the motorbike).
It came up beautifully.
Beautiful and functional!
P, as a PS3 user, quite enjoys throwing my shoes in a box labelled ‘EKS’.
