I decided my half of the 'save the difference' money would go towards crafting so I bought this little lot today for when the mood strikes to make more pencil cases and bedtime babies. It's hard to tell but the pink wool has sparkly thread woven into it.
I also bought these to leave at the van. I'm trying to make it so that I don't even have to remember make-up, just clothes and food. My make-up routine is really basic. Foundation, powder, mascara and lipstick but without it on I never feel properly dressed.
Just a thought on my 'save the difference' tin. I'll be starting another one this week but I struggle a little bit with the question "have I really saved anything". For example Amy likes this brand of toothpaste. In Boots it costs a whopping £3.50 but I know for a fact in Bodycare I can buy it all the time for £1.99. So knowing this, is it a bargain and have I saved the difference or not? I can never quite decide.
Another blanket has been finished. Not that they take that long as I|'m only doing a 6 row border. Although I can crochet I can't read a pattern and have no idea what the stitches are called. I tend to just make them up as I go along which is what happened with this 'bumpy' border. I liked the idea of a triangle but got lost halfway through the tutorial so ended up just doing this instead. I'm pretty sure I've not invented a new design, but I've no idea what this is called.
Thomas didn't get his £2 back. It's not that the boy didn't give it to him, he just wasn't in school today. Not sure whether to read anything into that or not. Just hope the lad isn't in trouble with his parents for borrowing the money. Maybe the two of them will have learnt a lesson from this.
