Today was non-uniform day for Thomas. His 'fine' was to take in chocolate for the Christmas Fair. I can't believe we're coming up to that time of year again.
I bought maltesers for him to take and while I was in Middleton I picked up the paint for the shed and a new book for me. I've not been to Bury for a couple of weeks and I'm having withdrawal symptoms from The Works.
It's also my s-i-l birthday today. We were going to go to Slattery's for afternoon tea but Mum is still in Cirencester so we're doing it another weekend instead. I've bought her perfume and flowers, well actually, when I got home I realised I'd made a bit of a mistake and bought Cerruti aftershave. Thankfully I realised what I'd done and was able to exchange it.
I've also subscribed to Prima magazine. I used to be an avid magazine reader but much prefer books these days. Anyway, I picked this up when I was on holiday in Devon, really enjoyed it and decided I'd quite like it plopping through the letterbox every month. I feel a long soak in the bath coming on this evening, which could actually materialise as Amy is sleeping out and won't be here hogging the bathroom.
We have another project going on at Number 38 only this time it's for school and it's dragons! Thomas has decided to make a dragon's nest so we pilfered some of Amy's nail polish which has a gritty finish to it and have been painting the eggs tonight. Just need to find a little dragon now so that it can 'hatch'.
