Earlier this evening my friend Pam and I went and visited our friend Lorraine at Patchwork Passion in Cranbourne as she was having a sale to make way for new stock arriving in the New Year. Well anybody who knows Pam and I will know that we just can't resist a sale...especially when it involves fabric. We spent nearly two hours there and after a chat and a cup of tea and a wonder around we were on our way. Oh, did I mention that we both bought fabric and notions for our DH to give to us for Christmas? They are good boys.
I was supposed to be out purchasing a Christmas tree and decorating this evening, however I decided that I would stop at the supermarket on the way home to pick up the tree and decorate on Tuesday. Yes I know, I can hear some people saying, it is already Tuesday. But I just had to add this post before heading off to bed. OMG it is nearly 3am. I had better finish this post and head off to bed otherwise the tree will be naked for another day.
I did buy my tree on the way home and let me just tell you that I think I got a bargain. This is probably because I have left it until the week before Christmas to buy it. Two weeks ago when I looked they were priced at Coles supermaket for $45. Which I thought was OK. Last week when I was doing my grocery shopping they were down to $35. I didn't have room in the trolley so left it. Tonight when I went in they were down to $25!! I wonder if I left it until the weekend if they would be marked down again to maybe $15.
Anyway I am now happy I have my real Christmas tree and the whole house now smells like a pine forsest. There is just something about the smell of pine trees that remind me of Christmas time. Close your eyes now if you don't want to be offended by my naked tree.
PS. If your lurking, leave me a message and say hi.
