I had to go into Neath this morning, my nearest building society branch is there, and the SO had a small list of bits and bobs that are readily and cheaply available in Wilkinsons.
Whilst he was searching them out I had a little wander round, I picked up some basil and flat parsley seeds, and then......and then I was bedazzled.
I had walked right up to a massive display of Christmas goodies Everything 10p.
I had planned on making a gold bauble wreath for next Christmas so I was delighted to snap these up.
There are 50 baubles in here, they were originally priced at £6, I picked up 3 boxes.
This little box of small baubles is for a project that I have in mind. At 10p it was a sure thing but I did only get the one.
Reduced from £6 I gathered up 3 of these, all will need new batteries but that is no big deal. One will go to Francesca and another will also be a gift.
Then I could not miss these out, 1 each for the grands, they all love the Minions and they can be refilled each year.
This is for the sewing room, it is made of slate and is quite heavy, I did pick another up for W and one with Cat rather than dog as he has cats as well as Rufus.
That left me a very happy shopper, I could have got carried away and bought 10 times as much. I only picked what I knew that I would use or become gifts.
Dinner tonight will be a combination of the roasted veg soup and the remains of the Barlotto, mixed together and thinned with a little veg stock it will make a tasty meal. I have the end of a loaf of bread that can be toasted to mop up the last little drops if we want it.
I will be making a veggy chilli ready for tomorrow, like a curry it will be all the better for cooling down and mellowing for a day.
I am keeping my fingers crossed that tomorrow will be a free day, it is ages since I went to knit and Natter and I am getting withdrawal pangs. I also need to get to The Flying Geese shop for some fabric for my 4 patch quilt. I have nothing in stash that works for the sashing and first border.
I am looking forward to some sewing time now although I still have to iron my dress lining fabric and get it cut out.
