Today I drove a two-ton Landrover Discovery to Hessle Road for some shopping, without any mishap. Eleanor controls the music, which is often Michael Jackson, which helps my concentration.
We have gone to day because Mark is away and we wanted to buy him a birthday present, because his birthday is in December, and it often gets eclipsed by Christmas, and the presents are an afterthought. I saw these self-lighting birthstones in Setams, where previously I have bought him an Xmas indoor water feature with a little town with a waterfall running down the middle of it (I love stuff like this) so I went back today. It has a fairy light grotto, and many interesting things.
Here is a picture of our booty on the patio table. We have a silver coin box in the shape of a letter box(as he keeps his in a jar at the moment) a chocolate cake scented candle, a butterfly jewelled bookmark, and the self-lighting December Birthstone. Also a fluorescent Xmas cube, a spotty tea cup and saucer combo, a ring in a box with a bow on it, a Happy Santa Doorbell (£1), and a High Society Trinket Box with a flower on it, among other things. To pay Eleanor for her trouble in accompanying me, we have a Father Xmas with bendy legs you can cross (which apparently Holly's mum has), a decorated box with a fancy stiletto shoe on it in a black satin cushioned presentation box(£2) a Father Xmas key to his grotto and a bell for the tree.
