So Easily Pleased!

After spending two weeks off sick, I thought it was about time I ventured out and about, especially as I needed some new supplies for the nappy cakes.

Somebody had recommended a wholesaler that they thought would be worth my while visiting but hadn't told me exactly where it was so I decided to see if I could find it by myself. Needless to say I couldn't, so I asked a lady in a nearby shop and she pointed out it was just behind her establishment!

In my defence it wasn't immediately obvious from the main road as it is tucked behind some other buildings and I always worry that they will want you to pay exhorbitant amounts to join, but this one didn't - as long as I had some ID on me they were quite happy for me to browse and even pointed out some things they thought would be useful to me.

Trouble is with those places, you always spend more than you intended to and yesterday was no exception. Mind you, I did get everything I needed (and more!) such as ribbons, teddies and cellophane. I also bought some helium foil balloons as I thought I would put those onto the website for purchasers to add to their nappy cake order so when the box is opened a balloon floats up. It just adds that extra something to the gift really.

So, best get on - I've got 3 orders to make up this weekend and sitting here isn't going to get them done is it?! Have a great weekend x
