... no matter how much money I may be saving.
Flippin heck, the queues in Debenhams were horrendous today. I left mark to it whilst I wandered off to "The Pier" to snap up yummy housey trinkets. I bought myself my Christmas presents from mark in Trafford Centre today. I hate him buying me something one minute and the next it being half price in the sales. I only bought a new Selphy printer (t'other one died the other day and they are invaluable), some hair tongs to curl my flowing tresses, some sockies etc. Belle on the other hand got a brand new coat from Debenhams which is brilliant as its one of the rare things that doesn't have fur on the hood. I can't stand fur on the hood on little girls coats. Why do they insist on putting it there? It serves "ball all" purpose other than to get caught in your mouth or impair your vision. She also bought herself a Pippa Funnell Horse game for her DS which she hasn't put down neither. I must remember to take pictures of her new slippers too from the Next sale. I do love a Next sale but the time I get there for me, they only have size 6 left and I wont even get my little finger in a size 6. And not an American size six as an American size six is an english size 10. Whatever. Poor mark ended up with new grundies and withstood belle and me rummaging in Claires and various other shops.
We took a trip over to the Mac shop and spied our next purchase. I'm thinking that once Mark gets a Mac he deffo wont go back on a G5 with a 24 inch screen. Saying that, you know, I made my new header on a Mac and when I look at it now (on my pc) its all weird. Head scratching at the moment, must re-work it). So anyway, Macs - they are moderately priced but I have to say the 24" screen swings it for me but then to really butter me up I might have to get the Intuous Wacom tablet. Tee hee. Who are we kidding, we didn't win the lottery yet. Its one shop Id love to work in... all geeky and smart with a cool staff uniform plus access to mac consumables all day long. sigh. Somebody give me a 2 minute trolley dash in there and I'd do serious damage.
So last night? Well I scrapped for me. I have a hoard of stuff I discovered in a pizza box I had left aside in October. Do not ask me how I would notice a few things go missing but in recent weeks I have really had a hectic schedge. I whipped this number up whilst listening to War of the Worlds. I downloaded the entire album the other day and have to say its one scarily magnificent collection of music and "Forever Autumn" is superb. The picture is of Belle snugging up to Mark after a hard days being a Bridesmaid at my sisters wedding 4 years ago.
Talking of my sister, she is paying a fleeting visit to us tomorrow. We don't see each other much and it will be a good couple of hours I can get to squidge my niece and nephew. Belle is quite excited about the visit and is preparing a collection of her gifts for inspection upon their arrival. I love that she gets a lil organised now and again.
And finally winally. 28th Dec saw the launch and complete sell out of the Jan Kits Studio Calico. It awesome to be a part of a team where the kits are hot off the press and the DT girls rock the kits senseless. I live for launch nights reveal, so I can see all my fave scrappers work in one rolling gallery.New years eve to prepare for... totally ready to sling most of it out as I make way for 2008. Planning on it being a good year for Belle
