Aren't they cute? Owl baubles and I have ordered three from Liberty at an outrageous price but they are my 'special ornament purchase' this year. Each year I try to buy something different for the Christmas tree, just one thing (or, in this case, three): it's now something of a tradition. As soon as Beth showed me the advert (an insert in one of the Sunday Times magazines) I knew I would HAVE to buy them. There was also a card with £30 off which would have been nice, leaving the shop owing me money but, unfortunately, you have to spend £150 and much as I love the ornaments I don't want that many!
See - overkill! Too many eyes following me around!
I did take a wee look at rugs (for the 'new' bedroom) but after recovering from the choking fit brought on by the price, I decided maybe not this month/year/decade/century!
Today is a non pupil day so no rush. I have to go into town later anyway, to have a whinge at my bank which I don't like doing but I'm going to have to.
Yesterday was, as I hoped, lazy. I made the plum and apple jam which turned out scrummy and we had the Saturday made soup for lunch and that was also scrummy. Alex, having gone to karate in the morning, had three bowls full as he was very hungry. Beth and I were full after one bowl. There's a bit left over for tomorrow too so that's great!
(and that's how many I could buy for £150, not counting postage!)
