Love Hearts and Laura Ashley

Some random thoughts....

I am currently devouring a pack of Love Hearts. You don't see them in the shop that often, so when I have the chance I pick up a pack. Which reminds me that Cadbury Creme Eggs are also on our shelves....too soon perhaps? I haven't succumbed....

...yet.....

Popped into Laura Ashley - yes, imagine, there's a store in Galway - the sale is on. I'm divided about the style to be honest. My sis, on the other hand, is v. into it. She's only 22, I'm concerned that she is getting old....clothes, hairstyle, etc. She'll be 23 on Saturday so I thought I'd pop in and try and pick something for her. Appart from a clock (like a miniature alarm clock) for 55 yoyos and a quilted bedspread for 250 there wasn't too much else that I thought she would love. Beyond my budget I'm afraid......Christmas and all that! Poor Sharo....I toyed with the idea of buying her material as she had asked me where she would get 'Laura-Ashley-like-material' cos she wanted to try her hand at patchwork! I'm not saying patchwork! cos it's old fashioned...(I think it's dead cool)....but she's not a v. crafty person. Not saying that I'm a v. crafty person, but I would be a lot moreso than her, and patchwork scares the bej**s out of me!

Anyway, with prices at 35 yoyos a metre I was afraid to ask the sales girl would she give me a third of a few......so I settled for a couple of material covered coat hangers, a glass perfume bottle and some liners for her drawers! Might make something nice too....we'll see how the rest of the week goes.

My in-laws called over for a visit last night so didn't get much scrapping done and Eilis topped up on 7-up which meant she wet the bed.....except....she didn't wake, and so we had to put her in the bath this morning and all ended up in quite a panic out the door. Dread going home, cos I didn't get time to put the washing on.....

Anyway, better head off now, and see how we get on...have some stewing beef to cook tonight.....lets see how that goes...Delia and Jamie are there to help though!
