A friend at work recently introduced me to the Shopaholic series by Sophie Kinsella. I just purchased the fourth book in the series yesterday and finished it tonight. Very entertaining – I greatly recommend the books [ Shopaholic website ] I see the movie was recently released on DVD, so I’ll have to see if it’s as good as the books. I just purchased the fifth from www.bookcloseouts.com The books are all around 80% off. Also, rather than pay for shipping, you can have your order delivered to the Book Depot on Welland Avenue in St. Catharines for pick up! The store is insanely huge – if you love books, you can easily spend hours in there.
I don’t have any flights planned this weekend due to the icky weather. It looks like the whole week is going to be like this.
I visited my little mother today and we wandered around the Seaway Mall. My shopping adventure ended in one pair of socks from the Zellers Clearance store, totaling 68 cents! I know you’re probably thinking I went a little overboard, but let me explain! One of my favourite pair of socks (grey with little white scottie dogs and ribbons) developed a fatal hole in the heel. A single tear trickled down my cheeck as I gently lowered them into the rubbish bin. “Farewell, my friends!” Thou shalt be missed!” I swear that I could hear Taps playing softly in the background….
Today’s symptoms: I’ve been pushing myself a little hard lately and it caught up with my pathetic little bod today around 1:00. I drove home from my mother’s and spent the rest of the day in bed, reading my book and snuggling with my kitties. I have also had a bad headache for much of the day.
