Only One More To Get....
Phew you know, I shall be so glad when I no longer have to keep my eyes on CK alert in Tesco. These all singing all dancing bags have practically taken over my life.
Friendships have been forged, I have sent a bag or two to friends on the SC cafe who haven't been able to get one, and kindly one, the Classic Floral has been sent to me.
We have had midnight dashes, and confused and bemused Darling Husbands, " My dear it is only a bag " yes my darling beloved husband, a bag I need two of each design, one to use and one to, well, look at admiringly.
Even my ever so precious daughter has got involved in on the act, as soon as her dainty foot steps over the threshold of the infamous store, she makes a dash for it, running the length of a very very long checkout, looking for THOSE bags Mummy loves so much.
Tesco is not even my food shopping store, so special visits are made. I can always find a lovely goodie or two though, as some of their home ware is delightful.
So I now have only one more to get, the Blue Ottoman Rose, and as I have Multi Floral, Blue Spot, Stripe in the Vertical, Stripe in the Horizontal, Classic Floral, Ottoman Rose, Christmas, and the Blue Floral I could have the whole Family.
Of course I don't love them all, oh no, in fact there is one that really I could do without, but you know how it is, its a Family thing, somewhat like the Natwest Wade Piggybanks, I have been getting these for my son, not to make money on them, but I really do think they are quite sweet, and so far have Maxwell, Annabel, and Baby Woody, I would really like to have Sir Nathaniel and Lady Hilary, don't think the purse can stretch to Cousin Wesley :)
So if any of you have been getting these Charity bags, I would love to know which one is your favourite, and although I love them, somewhere in the words of my darling husband is much truth, for me the anticipation of getting these bags is so much more exciting than when you have handed over that £3.50 or £7.00 in my case and more money for the Charity :), and the bag is yours, the excitement goes a little, he makes sense that husband of mine, it really is only a bag.
Or is it :)
