More things

Today i had a lovely day at the Op shop. Only had one child with me which makes things slightly easier to actually have a good look about. For a grand total of $10, i got.

1 rashie/swim vest for me
1 book for tom which has stencils in it of trucks and diggers, something he is right into at the moment.
a set of summer pajamas for tom
a set of overalls for benny. am so into overalls a the moment.
Mouse trap game
a barrel of monkeys
a hi five dvd
a brown jacket for myself (sort of brown denim) a cooler weather jacket, but lovely.
ummmm oh, and a book for myself.

Yesterday, i also took a huge bag of toys back to the op shop, although i had to tell tom that they were clothes, as he is very possesive of his toys, but will not notice when they are gone. am trying to cut down on the amount of plastic toys the boys have. The difficult thing now is that they are going to see their toys at the op shop and will want to buy them again!

Couldnt decide.

Today i found two excellent zip up hooded jumpers. Just the thing to look for on a 30 degree day. They are size 4 and 5 and i couldnt decide between the red one or the black one, so thought for $2.50 i would buy them both.

Yesterday we decided to spend the day up at avoca. It was LOVELY. the boys really like going there, and, along with their mother, certainly have a love of water. I think the boys love it a bit too much.

Before we went i had a quick peek into the op shop, and found a long, light blue, sportscraft skirt, with a small ruffle at the bottom. So perfect for sipping my latte at the beach... well more likely running after kids on the beach, but whatever, it was perfect, and it was $3. Oh also i found a pair of brand new, bright red and grey sneakers, which i have on my feet right now. excellent buy at $3. will post a pic later today when i get a chance.

Off for a walk today to see the gals up there and see what i can find. Should i wear my doona pants???
