Lots of shopping at the market
I bought some lovely things at the market yesterday:
A lovely pinky/purple leadlight lampshade for $4 - I will buy an antique-look base and show you how it looks when it is complete.
A little Royal Doulton "Roses and Wattle" plate. I actually collect "Roses", but I couldn't resist this little buy for $1!
A dear little glass/crystal plate ($4), which I will use for jewellery beside my bed
and a gorgeous necklace which is silver with purple crystal hearts in the shape of a four leaf clover. It is hard to see in the pic, but it is lovely. This was an early Valentine's Day present from my DH (I kindly informed him after I chose it, he's a darling!).
All in all, I had a fun time.
I have joined a book club and have bought:
Karen Martini Where the Heart is
and Kylie Kwong Simple Chinese Cooking
All for $38.95 plus a free Wok and accessories thrown in.
Hopefully I will soon be cooking up a storm.
Next I am thinking about buying Bill Granger Holiday and a book about herbal medicine.
I have also been buying on Ebay - The Secret DVD, some Grace cosmetics and a Revlon eyeshadow. All at bargain prices.
I had to go and collect my new glasses today. I have been hanging out for new glasses for a year. My last ones were terrible. I have been back to my original Optometrist and I have new lenses in my original first frames, which are light and so lovely to wear. I am happy again. They will take a little getting used to, but they already feel heaps better than the others.
I left my other glasses there to be donated to someone who needs glasses and can't afford them. I only hope someone can use them and enjoy them more than I did. As the receptionist said though - someone will be grateful to be able to read with them.
I know - I've been spending too much lately, but who cares - I still have all next year's wages to get yet!!!
I have been missing my children. They are all away by the beach at the moment. Even though I don't see them every day, I still know they are here and so I do miss them. They are having a lovely time though and school will be back soon enough and they will all be too busy to relax again, so I am pleased they are having fun.
Tomorrow morning before work I am finally seeing my GP. She only works two days a week and consequently is hard to make an appointment with. I have booked a double appointment as I need a full service, cut and polish. It will be interesting to see what she thinks of my episode of fainting and also the fact that I have taken myself off one of my tablets....... Wish me luck ........
