Beanie Mouse, Scrap Metal Merchant.....!

When we got home yesterday, there was a box outside our front door but we were too tired to open it then.  So we opened it this morning!!

Oh wow!!!  Paper stuffing!!!

And bubble wrap too!  Wait a minute.... what's at the bottom??


Andrea bought a WHOLE WAD of junk jewellery off ebay and it arrived!!!

Now then, Beanie Mouse OBe, Scrap Metal Merchant Extraordinaire, office OPEN!!!

There were a few rings in the collection including that rather fancy bloo one.  That one has three of the bloo bits missing though....

And BANGLES!!!  We think that orange one is either Bakelite or plastic, we're not sure.

These are all the beaded and metal bracelets

.....some broken chain....

And some odd earrings!!  No matching pairs this time....

A couple of pretty bloo ones though.....

Loads of loose beads!!!  They kept falling on the floor!!!

We got LOADS of necklaces!!!  Both metal and beaded!!

Then there were a lot of little metal gizmos - we can use these on our doodads that we jazz up!!

And those are the larger pendant-y things!
Oh wow, what fun!!!!

An evening out.....

This morning, Andrea brought us in to where she works.  We were put in charge of Pens.
We love Pens!!!

Later on, we helped with the tryping because sometimes Andrea spells things wrong.  We spell things wrong too but we do it funnier.

She has a Beanie calendar and this month, it's Beanie the Train Driver!!!

When we finished work, we got a Number 2 bus all the way into Brighton and tied a CD to a railing!

Then we got on a Number 18 bus and tied a CD onto that one as well!!!

We got off here at Pepper Pot.

And we found a pretty flower!!!

We went to see Arnty Vicky and we gave her two presents!  Arnty Bev was there too and we gave her a present as well!!!  Arnty Vicky gave us a present too - a minion that swings a ball and chain!!!
We ordered an Indian and a Chinese take away meal for dinner and we all completely stuffed our faces.  And still had left overs to take home!!!

We slept on the bus on the way home...... we're still stuffed!!!
That was a fun night out though!!!

A Seafront Detour...!

This morning we decided to go for a walk along the seafront..... next door has scaffolding almost all the way round the building all the way to the roof.  And they only built it about ten years ago....

That's a Union Jack flag down there!!

There was a bouncy slide thing over the road and it's a piratey one!!!  There's even a hook on it to swing from!

See?  There's the pirate boat!

It's lovely out today, really warm!

We saw grafitti too!!

and loads of beach huts!!!

They're really pretty!

Oh wow!!! Look at all those rosehips!!

There's LOADS of them.....!!!

And that flower is nearly as tall as the tower block!!!!!!!

Oh wait, I don't remember seeing that building before......


And then we came home...... That was nice!

We got a parcel!!

There was a package waiting for us when we got home today!!!


It's a bunch of floppy discs that Andrea got cheap off ebay!!!  The gizmo doodads aren't metal like the other ones, they're black!! Oh fu....!

Look what we found!!!

Andrea came home with an oversized bottle today!!

And it's got money in it!!!

Wow!  There's loads!!!

We helped her sort it all out - this is American money

On the left is a euro coin, middle is an old English farthing and on the right is an English penny!  Andrea says the penny is ours!!

On the left, a 20 Isle of Mann, on the right a 15 cent Bahamas square coin!!

We're not sure what these are, although the one on the right MIGHT be Spanish.

These are Spanish pesetas but you can't spend them now because they're pre-Euro money

We're not entirely sure where these are from either, although the double headed eagle on the back is vaguely Russian we figure.

So - does anyone out there know where the unknown origin coins are from?  Does anyone out there collect coins?  Would you like some of these?!!
