Cleggy had a good old chuckle at the comments on
his wrapping skills
'an honourary wonman you say'! (not sure how he felt about that!)
He does indeed know exactly what I like and is way more creative than he lets on.
inside said beautifully wrapped gift was a much coveted Kindle
and very gorgeous Kindle case
made by my friend
jane from teawaggontales
I love a book, and I love a real book...(especially love a vintage book) but I also love the idea of taking 10 good books on holiday! as well as travel guides, dictionaries, phrase books, maps (ooh, scrabble dictionary...mustn't forget)and a couple of books to read aloud to the boys. I do appreciate the above items all cost money, but much like itunes I can happily ignore this fact by quickly clicking the 'continue' button whenever anything about payment appears. Same goes for Amazon. Commonly known as denial.
So thank you Cleggy, and thank you Jane! I'm wondering when you managed to squeeze in a little cup of tea together to discuss making a kindle cover of gorgeousness!
I try not to moan on about it (here!) but the distinct lack of pink in our house does mean I spend my pennies on things of beauty that would otherwise be spent filling a case full of spots and frills. As all boys are now perfectly capable of carrying their own little rucksacks I have filled my holiday bag with the following
tissues, phone, kindle, sunnies and mirror (contains lip salve but it wasn't beautiful enough to be in the photo)
That's it. The dinosaurs, felt tips that leak, drinks (that leak), wallets full of pounds from granny, DS's, games, plus other boy parafernalia will be somewhere else! and the sand, stones, shells, strange foreign sweets and other holiday parafernalia can come back in their rucksacks too!
I may concede and carry a little game of 'pass the pigs'...
ps I know janes work is already widely appreciated here but if you haven't visited the littleteawaggon as yet then pop over. She's terribly clever. And tottylicious, according to he of the beautiful wrapping.
