I don't often shop in this shop, but ours is closing down for a refit ... or so the posters in the window say. You never can be sure these days, sometimes it's just a ploy for a bit of a sale to pull in more shoppers, especially in a seaside touristy town.
A Google Images photo of the Llandudno branch where I shopped.
Anyway it was nice and quiet in there so I had a little mooch around first to see what I fancied buying, if indeed there was anything that I fancied buying. There was, so this is what I bought -
I love stationery ... have I mentioned this before ;-)
I love the wording on this one.
This one made me laugh too, I just had to pick it up.
Next I picked up another notebook that was furry and had a Pug face ... then I saw reason, I mean how old am I ... definitely NOT six!!
So instead I put down the four pounds worth of furry notebook and picked up this weekly planner, now this will come in useful and I can colour in the top section when I'm in a doodling mood.
Maybe I am six!!
On the sale table .. Everything Reduced to Clear in big big letters to pull in the customers, amongst a lot of tat I spied this set of sticky notes.
Now these would be useful I thought. So in a flash they were added to my basket.
And then once again I had exactly one pound left.
Also on the sale table was a big box of postcards, I must have had John Gray's recent postcard competition on my mind because when I saw these at just 10p each I thought BARGAIN and picked out ten to buy with my last remaining pound.
Oh and I nearly forgot to mention the big red blob in the top photograph. It's this squishy strawberry.
It's actually a stress busting, squeezy strawberry that really smells of strawberry. I picked it up as a bit of a joke, because just as I was leaving home Alan had been on the phone for what seemed like a very heated conference call and had been getting noticeably annoyed by someone. Aha I thought, this might help ... and it wouldn't do any damage if he lobbed it at the wall in frustration either. So it's lived on the desk since I got back ... ready for action :-)
