Of course, that didn't stop me having a good rummage; because other people's old rubbish is one of my favourite things. Especially when it's free.
I ended up nabbing a whole carrier bag of mystery fridge magnets, and two models of Bender from Futurama. I thought they were just dolls until I got home and saw the boxes said WIND UP ROBOT. Even more awesomely, I've just checked Ebay and I think they might be worth a bit of money!
When I opened the bag of fridge magnets I was over the moon to discover these totally amazeballs letterpress magnets. I absolutely love them, and I think they go perfectly with the fabric on my DIY magnetic Scrabble board.
I decided to use the fancy alphabet magnets to decorate the gas fire in our dining room, which has been looking rather sad since I decided it was too much hassle to remove 100+ magnetic Scrabble tiles from it whenever I wanted to play Bananagrams.

The final set of magnets was themed around the weather. They're towards the low-quality end of the novelty scale, so I've just put them on the fridge like a normal person.
Finally, and nothing to do with magnets - I promised Emma Kate a photo of my new dress, which apparently makes me look like a Willowpattern Plate.
I really need to buy a full-length mirror if I'm going to start posting outfit photos...
