Lots of people are doing the Stoptober challenge, but I have probably saved a fortune over the last few weeks because I haven't been able to go anywhere. Yesterday was my first 'shopping' trip for a long time. My friend picked me up and we headed to Hobby Craft. That place is dangerous! I was very restrained, I picked up some fat quarters which were half price. But did change my mind and put them back. It is only a bargain if you actually needed to buy the things in the first place. As I have a whole room of bits of fabric, they really weren't needed. I did however find a set of printing blocks which I will get a lot of use out of. I could have spent all day in there. I am like a kid in a candy shop :)
We headed back into town and I found these beautiful tins. I will use the lentils and paprika so it is a practical buy and not just an indulgence.......honest :)
I really enjoyed the trip and felt a little bit more like my old self until I got home. I was so exhausted I went to bed! Oh my god, I'm taking nanny naps lol. I'm back to work in a couple of weeks. I really need to get my self sorted. I remember from last year, when I first went back to work I would come home and go to bed. For several weeks all I did was work and go to bed!! Life and soul of the party......not.
I also need to get back to plans for doing up the house to sell. Yes I am restricted to what I can do at the moment, but I could be doing little things. It is a case of getting my arse in gear. I have been lying around on the sofa for weeks now and have gotten used to it. I think I have become used to being a couch potato.
Brief Encounter - Kneehigh
In the newspaper yesterday was an article about customers getting their money back after buying bras, girdles and leggings infused with caffeine to aid weight loss and reduce cellulite. Seriously people, did you really think this would work? What are the most ridiculous claims you have seen for losing weight?
All the headlines on the newspapers were about the tax cuts woohoo!! The tax threshold would be raised to £12,500. Oh wait....... not until 2020. Just in time for me to retire.
I hope you are all well,
