There is a 50% off Christmas items sale. Not only that, but they also had some quite substantial reductions on clothing too. I was sorely tempted by a chunky, cardigan/coat/jacket type of thing but sense prevailed and I decided that I've got enough garments like that to last me quite some time so I walked on by. Shocking I know.
I did, however, pick up some things for Christmas next year - cards, present tags, strings of beads, Christmas boxes, etc. This lot for the amazing price of £20! Yes, even the penguin! I love the little twigs with lights on so decided to buy one of those just to have in the lounge in a vase to look pretty any time of the year.
The girls thought I was slightly bonkers when I got home with Christmas stuff but, after all, it's only another 361 days, 10 hours, 2 minutes and 34 seconds (says the countdown clock when I wrote this) until next Christmas *grin*.
