I'm very lucky that Mike gives me an allowance each month to spend on fripperies.
I receive on the 15th of each month - wait for it now - £36
Mike receives a tax free allowance of £36 for each night he spends away from home. I pointed out that by rights & in all fairness that I should have one nights worth for myself each month as obviously my workload increases dramatically when he is away. It doesn't if anything it makes my life a bit easier - one less male to clear up after but a frippery allowance actually makes me spend less each month.
It's the 15th today but I had already spent my pocket money at the weekend.
I made good use of it in Hobbycraft on Sunday & received a bonus gift by walking like a lady.
I stupidly wore a pair of heels which were really hurty & rubbing (hurty is a proper word in my world)
Mike told me to stop stomping & to walk properly, which I did with imaginary books on my head.
Mike was suitable impressed enough to buy me a bonus gift of this
It's a storage container a bit like a craft briefcase if you will. Marlene who blogs over at Poppy Patchwork bought a similar one so I found where they were in the store to have a further look.
They come in several sizes but Mike picked this one for me & seeing as he was buying I agreed.
It's rather useful & currently houses all of my current projects - well the ones that fit in.
Take care all xx
