~Recent thrifty finds~
I love reading other blogs because they make you think! I agree with Jane at Posy that the speed at how December advances usually fills me with panic about what's still to do... and I worry that I haven't managed to achieve all the practical housey stuff that I'd hoped in 2011. However this year I do feel a bit more laid back, as if I've jumped off the Christmas Consumer-Carousel and stopped my head from spinning... I've decided I'm unwilling to spend ridiculous amounts on food and presents this year, through necessity and because we do not actually need many things. I'm in agreement with Frugal Queen on that one. I know we're all different, and there's 'them that shop for leisure and them that don't'. However I do feel that whilst many folk are
manically scurrying shopping in Meadowhall or the Trafford Centre, I'm content still pootling about in my local High Streets. This also means I have time for a spot of gentle thrifting (yay!)..My recent finds...
