    I get most enjoyment in buying new toys in charity shops!

    I did have a bit of a spending spree at Clarks village on Saturday - bought some more ecco shoes (not very exciting to look at but very comfortable) for work. A new cardigan, a dress/top from yumi and my favourite thing a cardigan from Phase eight - hand wash only, so definitely not for work wear!

    Handbags and make up.

    My tastes aren't cheap, but I'm worth it

    I love Kipling bags I have quite a few hidden away, I don't think dh realises quite how many...apart from bags when finances allow I like to treat myself to expensive toiletries like Elemis/L'occitiane or a lovely Yankee candle. This doesn't happen very often at the moment

    I have a thing about little jugs....pottery ones.
    I've ended up with quite a collection.
    I give the kids their own little milk jugs each when they have breakfast here and then whisk them away to washs and put back on the shelf when they're done...just one of my eccentricities I suppose...
