Sod's Law!!!

I might have known that something would be thrown at me seeing as how I was planning on going out shopping for the day today.....and it was. We awoke to heavy snow this morning but decided we would get out to the main roads and see what they were like and turn back if we thought it wasn't sensible to carry on. Luckily it wasn't too bad and we hit Westfields in Derby just as the shops were about to open, downed a quick Starbucks and then raided the shops. Big presents had been reserved at the Argos nearer home so we left Derby by 11am and headed there to pick them up. Got sidetracked by a new bargain store that had opened next door to Argos where we picked up some useful things and I earmarked a new rug for the lounge which I am hoping Mr Manic will get on Friday........I had run out of money by then.
DD treated me to lunch at Frankie and Bennys which was gorgeous but the restaurant was bloody freezing and full of screeching kids so all I wanted was to get home, get the fire lit and make a cup of tea.
I've been in about an hour now and am still cold so I think I will stick the oven on and do some baking.
Tara for now


  1. So pleased you managed your trip out Sheila, I was there yesterday with OH, Sister & Nephew.
    Had a super hot chocolate in Thornton's.
    Didn't manage to get much though except a few craft bits.
    We should be in Spain but had an accident and our Car & Caravan are very poorly.
    A Merry Christmas & A Happy New Year to you and your family. Give Ruby Doodle a hug from me.

  2. Hi Sheila, Sounds like you are much better organised than I am! I shouldn't really be online as I still have so much to do but wanted to just say hi and wish you and yours a wonderfully Happy Christmas and all the best for 2011! Enjoy your first Christmas with Ruby Doodle. I have to say I'm really looking forward to Saturday as this year is the first Christmas that our two little ones have understood and got caught up in the excitement. I can't wait to see their faces on Saturday morning.
