A Grand Day Out...

Well as Gromit would say, or was that Wallace, "It's been a Grand Day Out!", I've at long last, been to Simply Create in Alford, & what a lovely, lovely shop it is. Will have to go over there in the middle of winter & hopefully get snowed in for a week!

Well we were greeted by the lovely Ann on arrival, who popped on the kettle & chatted to Craig, my lovely husdand & driver, whilst I had a good look round. Clearly I could have spent a fortune, but I showed great restraint & only bought a selection of things I really needed! Needless to say I am already looking forward to my next visit.

Anyway I've posted pics of some of my treasures, & just had to tell you about my "Travel Guillotine" It's so lovely, with 2 compartments for bits & bobs too - ideal to take on holiday with me next week! (Sad I know but I'm now thinking it's an addiction I now have rather than a hobby!)
