It's all about the tea and terror here

My Little Pony: Car Boot Purchases

I did pretty well last week, I went shopping with a friend, and managed to find the MLP notepad and pen set in Wilkinsons.  I also tried to get my friend to buy the same for work, but since she’s a probate lawyer, she said no.  I then tried to get her to buy a set with “thoughts of a genius” written on it.  She also said no.  She does not have my arrogance.

Then on Sunday, Craig and I hit the car boot.  I got the purple Phony and Strawberry Reef (very pink pony with red hair) for 50p each, and I generally believe it’s good luck to buy a phony at a car boot.

And I was rewarded with a bag of ponies for £2 in total.  It contained 3x Gen 3 and 3x Gen 2 (and that tiny pink pony).  Definitely a win.

I also got two barbies, because they were cute.  Also in the pic is Morning Glory (a gift from Nickerty Split) and Lucky (my 10p find at the first boot sale I went to).  Not sure why.

Anyway, when purchasing my mixed bag of ponies, the seller gave me a tip.  “I find,” she said, “when they get a bit grubby, I just pop ’em in the dishwasher.”  In response, my jaw dropped in horror, and husband quickly jumped in with thanks on that tip.

Four Oxy baths later and her body is finally free of the rust that was inside it.  However, her mane and tail are awful.  I asked Nickerty what to do, and she said to just call time of death and customise her.  I’m going to try a few more washes, and maybe some light straightening using copious amounts of conditioner and the iron on its lowest setting, but ultimately, I’ll probably just re-root her using some hair I’ve got lying around.  Not her original colours, because I don’t have any of the right colours.

I haven’t even got the heads off the others, but I fear the worst.  I will say that Sunny Daze is now beautifully clean.

I also had success today, but I’ve not had chance to photo them yet.
