I'm not going to write a list of resolutions as lots of people have already written my list for me - I could use any of these! So instead ... we went to Liberty on Saturday so I could buy my Christmas present (hee hee!) and I found some of the scrumptious and non-fattening Martha Negley Cupcakes and Teacups fabrics.
I've been lusting after these literally for months. I managed to leave some on the shelf for anyone else who gets there quickly - and it wasn't easy, believe me. And then I saw the whole shelf of Amy Butler prints. Hmmm. I'd better say this quietly - I don't think I really like Amy Butler fabrics. There, it's said. Please don't judge me, all you goddesses of style! There really is no hope for me.
We came back via St Pancras. How could we not, knowing that MrsM is so proud of MrM for his part in it?
I'd seen it described as "the sexiest station in the world", and let's just say the writer did not lie. We stood there like Sir John Betjeman:
All we could do was gaze at this beautiful old structure, so gorgeously modernised, and feel very envious of the people setting off on Eurostar while we shuffled back to grubby Kings Cross. But hey! At least we got to show the girls Harry Potter's Trolley!
Anyway, you'd think that would be enough, but no. Today we braved Cambridge John Lewis for school shoes; who was the genius that placed the children's shoes next to the toy department and then ensured a 30 minute queue? Thank goodness I was not wrangling both of them by myself ... Of course, after that ordeal I had to just check the haberdashery department. I was feeling very pleased with myself that I had resisted the delicious new glass beads (because really, I do not need any more stitch markers and unless I start selling them I will soon be buried) when I spied the woolly sale bin. Tell me honestly, could you have resisted this little lot at £3 per ball?
No willpower at all. Which doesn't bode at all well for the New Year's resolutions. Oh well, have a great night and a brilliant 2008! I'm off to find some champagne.
