Are you having a good week? Mine has been tip top so far, for the three reasons mentioned below...
My working day got a whole lot better after a colleague gave me a completely unexpected dinosaur-shaped present! Eeep!
He is my new desk mascot, and I have named him Garibaldi, because he reminds me of the illustration that accompanied one of my favourite childhood poems about a dragon who lived in a biscuit tin and ate garibaldi biscuits all day. No prizes for guessing why it was one of my favourites! (Side note- one of my other favourite poems is "When We Had Icecream" by Michael Rosen. Again, unsurprisingly, pudding related).
I decided Garibaldi needed fancying-up a bit (there's nothing quite so dapper as a well dressed dinosaur, don't you know!), and this is what I came up with:
|Fancy pants party-time dinosaur. Fancy, eh?|
2. Cartoon bags a-go-go
After seeing the lovely Kezzie sporting the most amazing bag I have ever seen in the history of my eyes seeing things yesterday, I knew I simply HAD to have one. Yes; it was very much a Veruca Salt moment, but with slightly less singing. Now I just have to narrow down my favourites of these mind-bending bags and pick the one I want to buy. *Sigh* Life is hard.
3. THE GREATEST BARGAIN IN THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD
I decided to pop into the Steamer Trading Outlet shop near my house on the way home (the main reason I wanted to buy this house, to be honest :p) and spent ages rummaging through all the wonky salt mills and lidless Le Creuset pans to find some
In the end, all I bought was a Christmas tree cookie cutter (obviously) and some saucers. But these were no ordinary saucers. They were in the "everything is 10p" section, so buying 6 mix and matched ones only cost me 60p (Mathtastic, eh? I'm like Carol Vorderman. But with a less nice bum). When I got them home, I peeled off reduced sticker after reduced sticker until I got to the original price stickers. The total RRP for those six saucers? TWENTY FOUR ENGLISH POUNDS.
I would put a picture of the saucers here, but they are just normal white saucers. Nothing exciting. So, here's a picture of a kitten in a teacup instead.
P.S. Seriously- SIXTY PEE! *pinches self*
