Default Stash of the day......

.....JENNY WREN AND BARN came to stay today.........i bought some mdf sealent which was half the price of primer...so hope its as good.....its clear finish,you can stain or paint afterwards so i hope it does as it says on the tin.........sue ryder caught my eye with a half price sale....conservatories were 19.99 instead of 39.99....so i got 2 for the price of one.........i know a bargain is only a bargain if you really need it......

I DO like your conservatories - they were a great buy and better that they're both different. It'll be interesting to see what you do with those.

Wow Su ! Yesterday a Cut Finger, Today Cut Price Bargains - The conservatories look excellent value. Going to try the MDF Sealer myself, I've never used it before either, so fingers crossed. Well Done on the bargains.
