What did I say about buying magazines?
Maybe I should get it tattooed somewhere prominent? The front cover of Period Living bewitched me into parting with £3.25 for basically one photo of a cream kitchen with old plates on the walls…..
Not even sure what I saw in it now....
Back once more to Chi(chester) – this time with my man…. I chuckle to myself when I refer to him as that…. anyway I digress; I wasn’t out to buy on impulse; I knew I would be on the look out for Seasick Steve’s CD after I saw him on the Culture Show last night and remembering he was the best and only decent thing on Jools Holland’s Hootananny over Christmas.
I can’t download music. I don’t know how and I don’t own an ipod….I don’t like things in my ears so I generally buy CD’s but before finding our way to HMV we had foolishly entered the danger zone that is Waterstone’s.
I am after a copy of Julie Arkell’s Home so I lurked about in the craft section generally being under whelmed by a rather lacklustre selection. Until I came across Pet Heaven, a delightful book beautifully photographed of mainly impractical pet accessories ( anti – firework balaclava for a whippet, a knitted hamster bed, a rabbit blanket) . I so wanted the book I went so far as to walk towards the tills but then my sensible logical part of my consciousness made me stop ( it doesn’t often). I don’t need a pattern for a ruff for Harry’s neck; he wouldn’t be allowed to wear a pearl incrusted cardigan – even on a nippy morning so why did I want it? Why is it now on my Amazon wish list?
I think this near miss weakened me allowing a magazine purchase to take place.
There are a few nice pictures but it’s mostly regurgitated stock photos and the same old, same old stuff….
