Happy Wednesday Friends.

Thanks so much for joining us today for The Wordless or not so Wordless Wednesday Link Up!

Over the weekend we went to watch Toy Story 4.

I have been a fan of Toy Story ever since the beginning. With 4 children it is hard not to have been.

My 2nd eldest Son loved Toy Story when he was little and we were Santa’s helper back in the day when you had to fight for toys because the sold out like one-O!!!!

Well, we never did the fighting but my Husband was one good Daddy at finding the rare Buzz and Woody when they mattered the most!! Searching the internet and then tracking them down in the shops.

Such a proud moment when your children opened their Christmas present to something they really wanted and you know you had to work hard to find it.

So of we went to watch Toy Story 4 do not worry, no spoilers here!!

Yes, I love it. Well all did. We the Husband and I and 2 youngest children. The older 2 have not seen it yet. Yes it did bring a tear to my eye, admitted not as much as Toy Story 3. I did have to do a fair bit of blinking.

What was amazing though, and honestly not a spoiler but there was a vintage shop in Toy Story 4.

A shop called Second Chance, now what could this possible do to relate to me and bring back even more fun memories of my kids being little!?

Well guess what!?

When all of my babies were small I decided I needed to have a job where I could work when my Husband was at home and be home when my Husband was at work. Somewhere I would be near to home and could take time off when I needed to. I am talking 17 years ago now.

I didn’t have the spate money for a big shop full of pretty thing what I wanted to own so guess what? I opened a second hand shop.

You are never gonna guess the next line are you!?

Yeap, you guessed it.

I called it Second Chance.

Second chance was a fun part of my life, I had a job and was home when I needed to be. Best of all I got to be around when my babies were small and work too.

Haha!!! Something random what I share with the film too.

    Nothing worse than trying to find those Christmas presents in short supply! I remember it well. xx

  2. How odd Claire! That’s such an interesting thing.
    I remember when the original Toy Story came out – I think I was about 14 years old!
    I haven’t seen Toy Story 4 yet, but the boys really want to see it.
    Thanks for hosting. x

    That’s such a cute story about your shop and that it was in the movie. TS3 was so sad for me, I’m not sure I’ll see TS4!!

  4. I remember those days and trying to find a tickle-me-elmo. Very nice story. Thanks for hosting and I hope that you have a wonderful rest of the week.

    I worked at a second hand shop in college called “common Cents” and I just loved looking through everything that came in.
