Halloween Goodies at Homesense

Halloween Goodies at Homesense

It’s fair to say Halloween is Ella’s favourite holiday. She’s obsessed with Halloween the way I am with Christmas. When HomeSense got in touch and asked if we’d like a gift card so we could go and buy some Halloween goodies, she got super excited!
We all love shopping at HomeSense and while Ella was Halloween shopping, Ant was upstairs looking for a new knife. He found one but he can’t have it until his birthday next month!

She was spoilt for choice which meant it took a while for her to choose! In the end, she opted for some decorations that she can use every year. She also bought a plastic tumbler with some sweets inside. It was only £1.99 which we thought was an excellent price 🙂

She bought some black sparkly pumpkins for £3.99 each

Thanks, HomeSense, for making Ella’s day 🙂

My handbag contents #Blogtober16

My handbag contents

I wrote a post about my handbag contents way back in August 2011 when it was a blog prompt on Britmums. I didn’t use my handbag much back then but I use it all the time now.

My handbag contents

Today in my handbag we have:

  • My new purse
  • Spare glasses
  • Frozen pencil case with bits and bobs – see below
  • My Slimming World book
  • Antiperspirant
  • Pens
  • Fold up bag pouch (the bag is currently in the car hiding some Christmas gifts I bought for the kids yesterday. I can’t get them out till they’re in bed. I forgot to get them out last night!)
  • Naproxen and co-dydramol for my bad back
  • A lovely pill box the mother in law bought me from her holidays
  • A tin of spearmints

My Frozen pencil case, that until recently was a lovely Gorjuss Ruby pencil case (Ella wanted a pencil case the other day. I gave her mine and bought this one for a quid. Now she wants the Frozen one so we have to swap when she brings the other one back from school!) holds all my bits and bobs:
