Yes, I know ...
... it's wrong, very wrong, to go and buy your teenage daughter's friend a birthday present and end up wanting to keep it for yourself. Yes I know it's wrong to take such a shine to all this saccharine cuteness.
My only defence is that in amongst the greeting card sweetness and old fashioned kittens and ponies are some great kitsch images and a weird little commentary.
Yes I know that the photos today are slightly out of focus, but I was trying not to bend the spine of the book before it's wrapped up (love the ladybird book wrapping paper by the way, but not liking the reprinted Janet and John books for some reason). There, now I'm talking about wrapping it up I think I've got time for one more browse...
Have a good weekend. We're off out tonight, that's if the military manoeuvre that is the taking of two girls to two separate parties, the hoping that the youngest likes the new babysitter, that M is back in time to go out, that the youngest isn't so hyped up after the sugar rush of her party that she won't calm down before we go and that the administering of Calpol to any of the people named above isn't required!
Oh yes and the babysitter told us last night that she wanted to go out too so we can't be out too late!!!
