Are you fed up with the Pooh Bear quotes yet? Sorry, can’t promise they’ll stop any time soon. There seems to be a relevant one for most situations, although it didn’t just look like rain today, it absolutely chucked it down aallllll daaayyyyyy!
Hubby was at work earning the bacon, and I couldn’t get out in the garden because of the awful weather, so I was at a bit of a loose end. I had to collect our food shopping, but other than that the day was my own to do with it what I wanted. I decided to go for a wander around the shops after I’d been to Tesco as they’re mostly under cover. So, what did I come home with you ask? Well, defrosted oven chips, but other than that I think I found out where my money goes!
I’m such a sucker for advertising! If I were an Eskimo I don’t think it would need a good salesperson to sell me ice. They’d just need to dress it up all pretty and cover it with glitter and I’d happily set up a subscription!
I got drawn into Lakeland by this ….
Cute little animals and cake. What’s not to like huh? So I came out with the fancy, super duper cutter that promises to turn me into a cake decorator extraordinaire and the bits and bobs needed to make a few of these cuties.
Assuming I’m successful (and why shouldn’t I be? Let’s think positive – she thought she could so she did!) I’ll show you all the finished articles when I’ve given it a bash.
Then I decided to have a mooch round Flying Tiger. Love this shop – it’s full of weird and wonderful stuff that somehow I manage to convince myself is absolutely necessary to my well-being! See, it’s the Eskimo/ice scenario again!
Theyve definitely got my number with this particular ploy ….
A big shiny bag for £2 with unknown goodies inside and only a titchy porthole to pique your interest! It’s just mean! How am I to know if I want it or not? Curiosity got the better of me!
I love the contents, just need it to stop raining now because it seems I’m set up for a picnic with wooden cutlery, egg napkins and a toucan bottle opener. I also got some cute post its that I’ll be able to use at work and some silver tape that’ll be great for Christmas.
I also picked up a fisheye lens attachment for my phone camera.
Hmmmm ….. might need to do a bit of practise!
Finally I went to Paperchase. This is up there with the best, possibly my favourite shop. Today they even had fantastic music playing. It was like an 80s disco but with more pens and less curly perms.
I skipped out with my purse a few pounds lighter but happy with the gorgeous things in my shopper.
Hope you’ve all had a great Sunday too and here’s to bank holidays. Whoop, another day of glorious time to do whatever we so desire!
