No2 and I ventured over there on Tuesday evening. He thinks that I will never say no to buying him books. Because it's good to read, isn't it? So, off he goes to browse in the children's section and comes back with a couple of novels. I am lost in the craft section, which they have recently moved and improved. So much so, I could have got a trolley and filled it. Books are good, right?
I drew the line at these 3 books, but I thought back to a previous post and the question of being a billionaire and it suddenly became clear to me that books, actually, might be high on the list! There were a couple of novels - buy one, get one half-price, so that's an order, right? Plus a few bit of stationery from Paperchase.
When we reached the checkout I noticed there were 2 other books hidden in the depths of a full basket - a Garfield cartoon book and The World's Funniest Headlines*. But they're books... Meanwhile, No2 created a suitable distraction by destroying a shelf full of something or other while I nearly fainted at the total and punched in my PIN number in a daze.
Anyway, I've been looking out for a paper-cutting book since I downloaded Emailorder #8 from AngryChicken. I played about with the sizing a bit so I could use all the designs to fit on a smaller card.
The heart one has become a favourite for anniversaries, although this one was for a girlie friend who likes all thing pink.
The rabbit on this one is supposed to hang on some string as though he is on a swing.
The book has some great templates in it for all sorts of occasions. There is a great one for Christmas - a string of jingle bells.
Changing the subject completely, did any of you watch Coldplay on BBC2 last night? I have played their new album, Viva La Vida, since Friday on my iPod. I'm obsessive like that. I love it. I have got tickets to see them at the O2 in December, I can't wait...
* From aforementioned World's Funniest Headlines:
Tornado rips through cemetery, hundreds dead.
I'm sorry, but I can't help keep laughing at that one...
