Little Lady has been saving her change in her money box with the declaration she wants to get a laptop like her aunties have. I bought this one for £2 and then found another one for Little Man for the same price. It's pot luck with electronics, so I was releived when we got home and put batteries in and they both worked. I have been meaning to get the kids torches for ages and these cost 50p (their gran will be sharing their room when she gets here next week, so I wonder how long before their dad confiscates them for not letting her sleep).
I do like bags, but not so much handbags as book bags. The spotty one is for me, the ice-cream one for my colleague, the see-through one for Little Lady's dolls clothes and the gorgeous little white one is being stashed for special occassions. The cherry one stopped me in my tracks and is perfect for me to take my shoes or lunch to work.
I picked up this big load of colouring supplies for £1. I think I am going to enjoy sitting and sorting through these. They are to be split between my children and two friends children (there are a lot more than it looks like).
A few treats for myself. The lady with the mirror asked me to make an offer, Little Lady suggested £2 and the lady lowered to 50p which was sweet as the mirror and pouch are beautiful (the back of the mirror is also covered with the same beeds and mother-of-pearl buttons.
In all I spent about probably close to £20 on the above and ice-cream for the kids (they were very good even if they did desperately need everything they clapped eyes on). I think that's a good price for a lot of happy mums and kids insh'Allah (I know I'll be happy sitting checking if all these pens and pencils work).
