I should have taken my wirework jewellery to a charity craft fair - but my childminder (otherwise known as my other half), let me down.
As I would now have 3 and 1/2 days at home I thought I'd embark on potty training the younger child. However I had forgotten that the children had been invited to a birthday party, (getting the hang of juggling yet?).
The party was 17 miles away, so I felt I could allow myself the luxury of dropping off the older child and continuing 3 more miles to Machynlleth (with the nappy-less child).

I don't think I have managed a trip to this wonderful emporium since July, so you can imagine my joy when I realised that my nappyless child, had stubbornly refused to wake, despite being transferred from the car to his pushchair. Three floors of fabric, friendly staff, and now, no children - heaven (except for the coffee and chocolate cake).
So what did I buy? Well I would like to boast that I exercised huge self-restraint, and bought only what I went in for (well OK, I did buy one extra item). As ever my tight budget kept me in control, but my head is buzzing with fabrics that I desperately want to buy!
I am hoping to show my purchases in their new form, shortly.
