Firstly, you get up when the world is sleeping, creep into your car and enjoy quiet roads while you travel out into the near countryside. You park in a field and seek out treasure! Do you know what I'm talking about?
Yep, it's carbooty!
|This lady's stall was amazing. I bought three things from her. I was tempted by more, but didn't take enough cash.|
|The first thing, a vintage port box which has now found its place as a bedside table. That little Dortmund ornament was a present from Vix.|
When you get back, you have breakfast in the garden and think about how to incorporate all your new treasures into the house.
Then you potter about doing bits of jobs. Hang washing out in the sunshine. Catch up with family on the phone. Mow the lawn, cut flowers from the garden to put all around the house, that kind of thing.
After that you need a bit of lazy time, doing not very much, wearing no make up, and something comfortable. In this case a Hawaiian house dress. It looks a bit Hattie Jacques on, but is that such a bad thing? You eat tasty treats. A nice fresh lunch, savoury snacks in the afternoon, followed by a slap up tea. Cooked by him, of course.
|The remains of a snack on a picnic table is the second thing bought from the aforementioned stall. The tambourine with gypsy girls dancing across it is the third thing.|

Finally, you watch a film, with a glass of wine, and then roll into bed at a nice reasonable hour, so you wake up ready to face the week.
What about you? What are your hot tips for a perfect Sunday?
