Blogtoberfest (Day 23)
Or should that be "Blog of Shame?" I rarely shop at that well-known fabric chainstore (the one that shall remain nameless but isn't Lincraft), but today I am afraid I succumbed. I had a minor beading emergency so I made a quick dash into the nearest Store-That-Shall-Not-Be-Named on my way to the city. I can't really be held accountable. It wasn't really my fault. Those tricky marketing people decided to have a SALE. Oh and not just any sale - oh no, a 50% OFF sale! What was a girl to do?
Shameful isn't it? But there were RED beads - at silly prices. My name is Sue and I am a sale junkie. I am trying hard not to have buyers remorse - and looking at those very RED beads is easing the pain of my considerably lighter wallet! Happily, I managed to heave my stash of goodies through the checkout and hightail it out of the carpark without a backward glance. Phew! I met my eldest daughter for lunch. We ate in a beachside cafe - although it was a bit too windy to enjoy al fresco today. We had a lovely catch up and she presented me with these ...
How cute are these tiny handcarved stamps! Just gorgeous. She picked them up at the markets on a recent visit to Sydney. I really like them and I am sure they will get a good workout. Nice of my girl to think of her dear old Ma whilst she was swanning about in Sydney don't ya think?As an added bonus I managed a quick catch-up with my other daughter before she had to go to work. What a great day!
I am feeling a little guilty ( not just about the beady splurge!) because I haven't quite managed to blog every day or visit as many others joining in Blogtoberfest as I would like. Guess I am going to get a "could do better if she applied herself" on my report card!
