Shopper's delight





Met up with the hubby for some lunch at Mildred's and then had a look round the shops. It such a privilege to be able to wander around town on a weekday away from the crowds. After years of going "Do you remember Barbapapa?" to friends and them looking at me nonplussed it's great to see them popping up in the "cool" shops now. The last picture shows our combined loot. I got some piano music books and I had a slow go at "Strangers in the night" when we got back. So excited!!

  3. lisen: det var i magma (i deras nyare present affär) som jag tog bilden på barbapapporna och där vi köpte allt utom piano böckerna och Mr Toast (han hittade vi på playlounge. båda affärerna är farliga, det krävs stenhård disciplin att inte köpa allt. kolla playlounge här: http://www.playlounge.co.uk/Shop.aspx
    trevlig helg till dig med!

  4. It looks like as if it has been a good day and I am very impressed that you can already "play" Strangers In The Night"!

    Do you still play the guitar? Remember you took some lessons with Deborah here in Lasalle? You played well...

  7. joji55: I can't play it all the way through yet but it's fun trying! and no, can't play the guitar anymore, I guess once you learn something new your brain let's go of something old. or something like that :)

    ola: wow, the violin! now that's impressive! that's one instrument you have to play for years before it's sound decent right? unless one's a natural! yep, that book is funny looking, it's for kids, hence the little monsters!
