Santa kindly bought us "pictures of the Queen" or to be more exact, "pictures of Ernest Rutherford", (aka money) so we popped out today to exchange them for some Items of Desirability.
I bought myself a mug that I liked. ;) I also got a new ice cream scoop since I broke the old one last night serving up home made strawberry cheesecake ice cream. This one looks nice and sturdy. I also discovered that St Lukes has a little chocolate stall place (near Starbucks) that sells Schoc chocolate - a chocolatier that I have great admiration for.
I was given this Annabel Langbein book for Christmas too, so a nice little foodie haul here in this photo.
We also made arrangements to purchase a Big Girl's Bed (to be delivered after January 10). Yes, my baby is finally moving from the toddler bed into something more suitable for a growing girl. *sob* She turns 4 on the 7th.
I did not, however, manage to find a swim suit. I suppose it was a bit optimistic of me to think I could walk into a store and find one I liked. I like one piece suits and found one store that had nice ones but I had to walk away. Call me Scrooge but I can't bring myself to pay NZ$229.00 for a pair of togs!
