Miss M will be "11" at the end of the month... and I'm at a loose end as to what to get her! She got all the things, she'd planned to, in China. A silk parasol, a traditional fan, a chinese dress and a "china" doll (she actually came home with 3 china dolls - 1 china, 1 fabric and 1 wooden!) She has written a list:
Littlest pet shop figures (she already has about 20 though - how many can a girl have?!!)
a skate board (I don't really want to get her a skate board - H-man has one)
Ho-hum. I'm thinking I might give her our old queensize bed, that's in the spare room. She'll get it eventually, but I was thinking, maybe we'll give it to her earlier - I've got some really nice funky linen for her too. Mr T was thinking of giving her a puppy! One from our friend's litter - they'll be ready right on her birthday. I said, I'd leave it up to Mr T to decide. The pup will set us back $400... hmmm "free bed" or "$400 dog"?!!! Yeah, I know, I'm tight. No wonder my friend's say I'm tighter than a fishes bum! So, if you have any (cheap!!) suggestions, let me know!
On another exciting note, I have my first root canal treatment tomorrow. Joy. I actually had a nightmare about it the other night - I woke up all sweaty!!!
