OK, so it is really Tuesday but I missed out on doing my Magpie Monday yesterday due to Half-Term stuff.
So what have I acquired this week on my trip to charity shops?
This week, I have focussed on books and factual ones at that. I am going to set up a new blog shortly and these books are all part of my planning and research so watch this space. If I told you the titles, it would spoil the surprise of my new blog when it goes live.
I can tell you about the Susan Jeffers book I found though. Have you heard of her book called "Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway!"? I always buy self-help books as I know I have a long way to go on the path to enlightened human-being status. I don't always read them cover to cover in 24 hours as I did with that book. It is written in down-to-earth terms and has helped me with its simple philosophy time and time again.
This week, I bought a book by the same woman called "Freeing Ourselves from the Mad Myths of Parenthood". Well, that has to be worth a read, right?
I also bought some glasses as I needed some "it doesn't matter if they smash" ones for juice. I bought about six zillion plastic soldiers and vehicles to entertain the boys and am sure my feet and myself will live to regret that purchase.
From Netmums, I acquired a whole new wardrobe of clothes for £55 which may sound a lot but works out at less than 75pence per item. It also marks a little move towards me getting my flagging groove back with some stylish clothing.
Finally, I bought a mug which might say way too much about me. It is in Fifties style (I adore all things Fifties!) and is of a woman in a kitchen with two messy children. She is saying in a speech bubble "I child-proofed the house and they still got in!". In Half-Term week, I am sure many of us can sympathise with the sentiment.
What are your bargains this week?
