Once again I have sworn to Daddytwo that I will avoid charity shops - and once again it was a spectacular failure to hold up that agreement.
Walking past one of my favourite charity shops I spotted this item of wonder on the table outside (damn their cunning wiles) and for one whole English pound there was no chance whatsoever I was going to be able to walk past!
Owls are horribly fashionable right now, and I'm into them (as you can see from the owl satchel this little number is perching atop!) and I love cheesy, colourful items to dot around our house to brighten it up - and this suits!
And generally, when I buy something purely for myself, in the knowledge that I am likely the only person who is going to like it, I try to distract attention from that by buying something for the children or my husband - this time the kids won out when I got a lovely collection of painted wooden blocks for one pound fifty - lots of opportunities for learning, playing and crafting with these!
