After the purchase of my camera, I can't say I've had the courage (or cash) to purchase anything else. But there's always room and money for books. Charity shops to the rescue, as well as Amazon 2nd-hand.
The luggage is reaching capacity, what with gifts for the Wildflower from friends and family. We've also bought several jigsaw puzzles for her.
I've been trying to read fiction while I'm here, so that I can leave those books behind. I read an awful Cecelia Ahern, completely not my thing. I'm enjoying Isabel Allende's, Daughter of Fortune. The Wildflower has fallen in love with A Kitten Called Moonlight - she's into the whole rescuing idea (Dora influence).
It'll probably be 6 months before we buy anything again!
My youngest niece made me proud by suggesting I leave some clothes behind to make room for more books.
