Before I tell you what it is, I need to tell you about my Terramundi Pot.
It was given to me by a lovely friend for my 40th Birthday.
A slot for putting money in, but nothing to get it out! When it was started I decided that I would spend the money on 'something for me' ~ something I wouldn't normally buy because I think it a bit extravagant.
I've been saving £2.00 coins in it ever since ~ well, to be perfectly honest Mr Clicky Needles puts quite a lot in too.
I've had a case of the Needies (more than the Wanties) for quite some time now.
We were discussing cost the other day and DD gave me a sideways look from her laptop.
"You haven't smashed the pot yet, have you Mum?"
Blimey! hadn't thought of that.
It wasn't full but as I said it was the Needies.
So the other day we held a ceremony.
....and all this gold came out.
There was about £600 in it. Apparently when they are full of £2 coins you can get over £1000!
So I ordered.
The UPS man grinned when he finally turned up at 4.00pm with it.
"I know what it is" he said.
"Just give it to me, I've been tracking you all day." I said, rugby tackling him as he came up the drive. "Where have you been?"
Have you guessed yet?
Yep, an ipad.
Oh my, oh my, oh my.
I think we'll be having burnt food, no washing done, no ironing...................
I am totally in love.
Of course the rest of the Clicky Needles gang like it too, DS playing Angry Birds.
So yes, the smart money was on a spinning wheel but the ipad came first!
We've got a family trip ~ joy ~ to the dentist tomorrow, so I'll see if I can find a replacement pot then. There was some money left over, so that can go back into the new pot for a flying start.
Oh, and I found a new Orla Kiely bag in Tesco, but it's paling into insignificance compared to other things.
I shall try to calm down now.
