Normally we get paid on the very last day of the month so it was very nice to discover when I checked my account this morning to find that we’d already been paid! So a shopping trip was of course inevitable today….do the words ‘money’ and ‘burn’ spring to mind?? 😆 Actually, I’m sitting here writing this, knowing full well that I’ll be taking a break in five minutes as it’s the second part of Doctor Who which was totally brilliant last week. The Daleks are back again and rampaging 1930’s New York. Doctor Who has forever been a favourite of mine. I grew up on it and when I was at college, it was the only programme that I and my friends watched in the three years we were there. It was a great Saturday tradition to meet up in the common room which had the only tv on the campus!
45 minute hiatus over…. 🙂 Back to the shopping trip. I have another friend’s birthday coming up next month so I decided I just had to buy something today from John Lewis which never fails to inspire me. I went back to the Nougat section which I’ve mentioned in a previous post. They make sumptous body products and this time I went for the Sparkling Body Shimmer lotion in Fig and Pink Cedar. I couldn’t resist taking a photo of the fab packaging! In case this company is new to you, here’s a link to their website Nougat. Unfortunately the site is still under construction but I’m sure you’ll get a good idea of what they’re like from the gorgeous photos there.
I also bought myself some new sandals from Next and a couple of pieces of jewellery from there too. The weather continues to be beautiful …. apparently it’s been the warmest April in the UK for 300 years!
