she bought, um - well, she bought a fair bit. And boy does she look forward to spending her saves. Ok, you can stop speaking in the 3rd, Kirsty

Ive worked almost every weekend since forever and meeting my lovely friend Maz and her son Connor, today, for a spot of shopping and a natter was just what the doctor ordered. We pretty mooched and sifted and browsed. We ummed and ahhhed and coo'ed and practically choked on the cost of things! Ive got to say, I had a great morning with her.
I wasn't planning on buying a great deal. I'm normally happy with something from Boots (who doesn't love Boots?) and a coffee but the pull of the magnetic beams from Accesorize took a grip on us and this is what I swagged.
I've been after a straw/wicker style bag for a while. Mainly becuase floppy bags don't cut it when I'm out on shoots. Having a sturdy bag which keeps my lenses and spare camera in a stable condition appeals to me and this sturdy/pretty number is just the ticket. Maz and I decided its a great bag for stealing babies with and for carrying Eddy around, of course.
Sausage doggy sockies, natch
Love these Royal Wedding paper chains - may use them as paper chains. May use them as bands of colours on my craft projects.
This pre' lil scarf. I'm in loves.
Then off to Waterstones to buy a book recently recommended to me. Room is a book doing the circuits in book clubs and when someone raves about a book in a non sickly "OMG Im going to DIE" fashion, it makes me want to read it. It's a bit tough going (Ive read two chapters) because of the language used (speaking from a five year old's perspective) but Ive been told to persevere. I also got Marian Keyes latest and a book called The Help. Im excited I've got my reading mojo back.
And more recently Ive managed to hook myself up with some cheap buys from elsewhere. Namely these, which I swagged these off ebay recently. They are vintage "holeless" linen covered buttons (a sniiiiiip!)...... Brills for inking etc.
And 4 dvds for £15? WTH? I ain't saying no to that
And lastly, my order from Mei Flowers arrived today. I encourage you to go and seek such treasury within it's tempting onlinement. For it will reel you in and have you salivating like a donkey being teased with a carrot. You have got to love a shop whose baseline P&P is ONLY 99p.
You have permission to also slap me with a wet kipper if you hear me complaining that I have nothing to do. Which is ridiculous, really as I NEVER have NOTHING to do.
Enjoy your weekend and put your factor 15 on ;)
