Buying books

I had a lovely girly day out on Friday with an old friend I had lost contact with and we went and had lunch and did some shopping in Cardiff. And of course lots of gossiping!

I got a lovely notepad in Paperchase for when I start my Creative Writing course in the new year (Eeeek! More on this soon!) and of course a new pen which is supercute and is covered in a Russian doll pattern. I had to stop myself from buying the entire range to be honest but was very restrained!

I also went into Waterstones for a look around as I love bookshops. I was very disappointed that there were no offers on for me, and the only ones that would have interested me were for books I already have. I was intending on treating myself so felt a bit rubbish about this.

But on Saturday morning I got the latest catalogue from The Book People and found loads of books I wanted that were really cheap!!! So I have ordered a grand total of 14 books (this should keep me going until Santa brings me some more!!) but I will let you know more about them when the postman brings them for me!! :-)
