Anyway, enough about our dead pets. I thought I'd show you two of my purchases from last week's jumble sale (don't worry, I'll be showing you all my purchases in every intimate detail in a forthcoming post).
Now, the pooch ( a fox terrier, I think) is rather adorable but his leg had been glued together badly as you can see here:
But at 10p, I thought "What the heck..." and he came home with me.
Whereupon, I had a brainwave. I got a piece of ribbon and glued it round the offending badly glued bit (sorry my vocabulary is not its best today) and look at him now:
Mr J and P thinks he looks "a bit bizarre" but what does he know! What do you think? Does it look a bit bonkers?
This casserole dish cost me a quid.

It's Poole pottery and a range called "Lucullus" launched in 1962. I was going to give this to a friend of mine but I like it too much and am going to keep it (even though I don't need another casserole dish). Mind you, I was very good and stuck to my "one-in-one-out policy. In fact, I bettered it by getting rid of three bowls and one plate.
Or so I thought. I've just discovered that Mr J and P has snuck back into the cupboard his chipped childhood melanine bowl with a very faded piccy of Mickey Mouse!
Darn, thought I'd get away with that one!
Have you ever tried to disappear your beloved's belongings without them noticing? Of course you have! Come on, spill the beans....
