I bought a new top from BHS for my brother's wedding. I had my lemon handbag in mind when I went shopping and thought this would match nicely. In my late teens I once bought an entire outfit including shoes to match a pair of brightly coloured plastic earrings off the market, so matching an outfit to a bag isn't so bad really!
And I also bought one of these. Colouring books are obviously very much in vogue as there were loads in The Works and WHS. This is from the latter. It's quite small, about the size of a facecloth folded into quarters but it's got some lovely patterns inside and will be perfect for popping in my bag should any more bedside duties arise.
Thomas has been to Hollingworth Lake today for his school trip. They did canoeing, kayaking and raft building. He was really excited about going this morning but I don't think he had that good a time. He slipped in the lake, fell and banged his knee on a rock. It does look a little bit swollen but I think his pride is hurt more than anything else. He also cut his finger on the canoe and he was cold. This is an old photo but the look pretty much sums up how he felt about the day.
He's not known for his athleticism, although his thumbs are in pretty good shape from all the Xbox playing he does, so Lord knows how he'll get on when he goes away on his adventure weekend. We'll just have to cross that bridge when we come to it or maybe in Thomas' case fall off it.
