    Not really doing great at keeping a journal. I'm doing a lot more browsing than buying at the moment.

    Girls are on half term next week so got to find a way to keep them occupied without spending lots of money.

    I get paid on the 1st and can finally start shopping. I've never started so late before lack of funds and also inspiration has slowed me right down. I'm also now worried that if we go into total lockdown again I'll never get finished!

    Mine are on half term next week too. Hopefully we will all find a way to stay occupied without spending too much. It's difficult now the weather is getting worse.
    I hope you manage to get everything sorted in case of another lockdown. Not looking forward to the shops if that happens!

    Exactly that Bev. We're south east which is medium risk but who knows when it will creep up. I hate going into the shops now as it is let alone if there's a mad rush!

    We’re South East too and so far we’re medium but I have a feeling cases will start rising in our area. So many people flouting the rules and saying covid doesn’t exist :-(

    Sadly people just don’t care. I was really unwell at the beginning of the year and I think it may have been covid x

    I walked past a guy in the shopping centre the other day who was coughing and spluttering and his mask was right under his chin! :nope:

    Great lists!

    I think our Claire's closed here, but maybe I'm wrong. I never thought to check there for things for my daughter. :)

    Elsie Doll (designafriends...she has three already)
    Pyjamas for designafriends
    Sleeping bag for designafriends
    Designafriend ball
    Giant Unicorn (purple)
    Daisy Meadows animal books

    (Quite surprised at the last one as she hates reading but is very good at it. Already got the designafriends bits covered except the doll)

    DD2 6
    A bike with a baby seat
    Lara doll (designafriends)
    Poopsie
    Barbie colour reveal
    Designafriend ball
    (She is too big for her current bike and it's never been very good so DH said we could get her that. Again another doll (she has one) so we will end up with 6!!) I've already got a poopsie and Barbie colour reveal )

    I really wanted DD1 to ask for a Playmobil vets, she said she liked it but not for her list this year.

    Will update my lists shortly

    Whoo. I don't usually do second hand but I didn't really want to buy a new bike for DD2 and she doesn't use it. Lady selling a bike on Facebook for £25 and looks immaculate apart from one tiny scuff by the handles. Also has the dolls seat she asked for. :happydance:
