This Sunday is our six-year wedding anniversary. We agreed to spend no more than £20 on each other and yesterday hubby, too excited to wait, presented me with my gift! Very excited I was too!
Do you want to see?
Well ok then...
My very own Cath Kidston oil cloth zip-up tote bag! Small but most perfectly formed and ideal for carting around my sewing and WIPs. Though I love its practicality so much I want another one straight away to use to carry my lunch and bits to and from work.
I've never actually been a huge Cath Kidston fan. I see her fabrics and think they are lovely of course, I even bought some once. But the CK designs always seemed too commercial for me, too obvious. It's like ug boots (bear with me on this analagy..) I never bought ug boots because I did not want to follow the crowd and be a sheep As a result I have tramped around parks and playgrounds with cold feet for the last four years unaware until recently that my toes could have been as toasty as...well..toast. When I finally caved and bought some it was like a revalation, I spent the entire day on Whitstable beach feeling like I was wearing heated slippers. I will never look back!
It's the same with Ms Kidston. I have resisted too long and now I am converted. I am so pleased with my lovely new bag! I read the accompanying catalogue cover to cover dribbling over all the gorgeous goodies. I have been so please that hubby has promised to drive me down to Tunbridge Wells for a browse around the CK store in time for my birthday. Look, even the packaging is gorgeous...
This will definitely be recylced as wrapping paper this Christmas, ever frugal!
Right now I am off to pack some crafty goodness to take with me when we visit my Dad this weekend...
