Well, I really put the cat amongst the pigeons with my comment yesterday. Most of us seem to like some Cath Kidston stuff, some of us love lots of it! My favourite comments were Angela's, who wondered if CK sold a nice tin to keep the worms in (I'd commented on opening up a can of worms). Which tin would you choose, Angela? I like them all!
And the other one who really summed it up was Mrs Yappy Dog, who said: "if it was in a charity shop for a good price I would probably see it in a different light - it's all according to the size of your wallet I think ... personally I would get more pleasure from finding or creating a 'look alike' at a fraction of the price! " Amen, Mrs Yappy Dog. Do go and vist Mrs Yappy Dog if you haven't met her yet - she's new to blogging and has joined the Magazine Swap.
The Magazine Swap partners are due to be announced tomorrow. I'm going to have to wait and see how the new steriods :( I've been given are doing with this thyroid virus. If they're beginning to do the trick I should be able to get the partners out on time.
Cooking has kind of gone down the drain as the thyroid thingy got worse. The debacle came today when Son 2 announced in disgust: 'this is just NOT Bolognese sauce, Mum', about something I'd taken from a jar. He is a connoisseur of Spag Bol, made by me, and more recently, by him. He decided he couldn't eat the stuff from the jar. I'm sure the Italians would be proud of him! I am too, really...
