I felt recovered enough this afternoon to go shopping with DH and the small ones to Blogtown. Still a bit wobbly and feeling weak, but upright and with a smile on my face :-)
The small ones had some Christmas gift money burning holes in their pockets and wanted to get a new Nintendo DS game each. After checking the prices in five different stores, we settled on the Mario Brothers at the Olympics or some such similar title for DD3 and DD4 chose a Hello Kitty game, both at reasonable prices.
We had a quick browse in Asda and I found a two set of duvets pack which DD3 absolutely loved for only £12. Both designs are very pretty and appropriate to a pre-teenager.
DD3 has a fab pair of thick , fleecy lined bright-red cargo pants for £5.
DH and I have a new toasted sandwich maker and a small slow-cooker (crockpot) for a combined total of £12. That is a serious bargain, LOL.
The sandwich maker has been duly christened with DH's baked bean, bacon and cheese toastie and my bacon, Brie and cranberry sauce toastie. Yum !!
DD3 has already chosen which duvet cover she wants to use first on her bed, so that is what I am heading to do right now.
