It is not just me who thinks it??.......

Ouch, ouch my fingers are sensitive following deleting all the emails received last week or so for Black Friday and Cyber Monday all offering “the deal.” They cannot all be true……Can they? I know from speaking to some of you in the Boutique you share my frustration too. Normally “the deal” has already gone or worse still you put some things in your basket only to find they have sold out before you can check out!!!

A Spirograph set ordered on a whim the other evening when I was shown some artwork online only for me to exclaim “I could do better than that with spirograph. But hey sometimes those silly purchases bring back some nice memories of your childhood/ younger years, so no harm done.

The consensus that it was going to get...
