I was really pushed for time again today but I managed to carry out a bit of Shoestring forward planning on my lunch break. Yup, more things for the gift box. I managed to pick up a lovely 1954 Penguin edition of an old favourite which I know one of my friends will get a real kick out of. And it was only £1.50! I’m thinking it will go rather well with an old postcard-type book mark. I also got a couple of other things including an Emma Bridgewater tin and a very cute bag with ladybirds on it (that folds up really small).
The Book Man came to work today (I love the book man – lots of discounted books). I picked up a really great book of recipes that can all be cooked in one pot. I’m hoping this will give me a bit of inspiration in the kitchen which is sadly lacking at the moment. I also got a gorgeous cook book with loads of great brownie recipes which is headed for my gift box!
The rest of the day has shot by without time for much else (I’m sneakily writing this while the rest of the band discusses the set list for Friday). I’d better get back before they notice…:)
