Absolutely NO self control

Right so if I write this small and don't put a picture on this might go un-noticed......o.k? The reason I wanted to track my spending this year was that I have been saving up and I needed to reign in what I frittered if I was ever going to afford what I thought I really wanted.
Simon went away on a course for ONE NIGHT and Mum and Dad have come to stay to keep me company and help with the kids. Now as you may have gathered Mum is my Master in Textiles and this is all her fault! We were having a chat about how my saving was going and whether the item I wanted might be available cheap on e-bay. I assured Mum that 'no I am definitely gonna have to pay the full whack at £250+'. So what did I do next (go on guess) yes of course I went online and found one at £150 and Mum told me to so I bloody well bought an embellisher. (In case you were wondering I had £50 saved. ) I have confessed to Simon but I'm not Catholic and I don't feel any better. Now I just have to wait and see if I really did need this. Look out for pictures early next week. I am in shock I would drink Gin but I can't afford it now!

Out of the two - gin or embellisher - I know which I'd go for. Am very jealous of your purchase. Hurry up with the pix of your experiments. :0)

Where are you Jenny? Am waiting to see wild experiments so I can say nice things about your creations and make the guilt of spending so much money disappear!!! Don't tell me you found some gin and are still recovering?!

I know the suspense is killing me too. They tried to deliver the embellisher yesterday but I was at work (yawn) and they will try again today so I am waiting in.....oh the agony! Anyone with pre-school age children knows that waiting in for packages is actual Geneva-convention-contravening TORTURE! Thanks for the Gin reminder though, I have some Whiskey and that might just get us all through....
