The hypnotic power of ebay has drawn me in yet again!  In the search for children’s party items for A’s forthcoming birthday next month where she is veering from Harry Potter themed, to Chinese New Year to JLS and back again. I stumbled across life size cardboard cutouts, which we all know I am no stranger to (lest we ever forget Troy Bolton, even now, stashed under my bed in case of a HSM emergency, the now sadly defunct Han Solo and Mel C in mid karate kick that started it all back in 1997 as a comedy gift, for no particular reason, for Father’s Day).


I decided to scroll through all 14 pages of cardboard cutouts in the hope that inspiration might leap from the screen at me and the question that presented itself on page 8 was… Why?


Gordon says… relax



And on page 13…  Exactly how gay is your party that you need a life sized standee of Liberace?

What a gay day!



I have to admit I am tempted to get the Liberace one because you just never know when a quality item like that might just be the thing!

 Successful trip to the Panto accomplished and childerbeast didn’t complain (much) at all about being trailed around Leeds on a mission for school pumps.  Clarks shoe store seriously?  £9 for P.E. pumps?  They’re £1.50 in Asda FFS!

 Managed to get R a purple coat, as requested, which actually cost more than my new coat – typical that all the coats in the sales were not purple. 

    Childerbeast spent their vouchers received for Christmas and are now happily ensconced in their bedroom playing with some kind of Mission Impossible scenario Playmobil set and A is resplendent in her JLS PJ’s with the heads of Melman, Alex, Marty & Gloria on the front (or whatever their names are…)

 Visiting Scarborough for the day tomorrow and have managed to finally track down a Harry Potter Monster Book of Monsters box from the Argos there for A’s birthday in February.  You totally can’t get these things anywhere (unless you count on who are charging a ludicrous £95!)  It’s a flipping furry box with eyes for crying out loud!  Jeez!


it's a box FFS!
