The first time they got me I was in the Manchester Department of David Jones looking for a wedding present (no - not for Kate and Prince William, other friends have actually planned a wedding this Saturday). Whilst I was there a quilt cover and accessories just threw themselves into my arms and announced they were 40% off. Obviously the Shopping Gods had given them special powers. Needless to say they have all come home and are now making themselves at home on our bed.
Look - cosy.

I was also snaffled by these gum boots. They were cute and just the right size for Farmgirl. I felt it was an omen from The Shopping Gods. I also hoped that if I bought the whole family new gum boots then The Weather Gods (infinitely more fickle than The Shopping Gods) would know we need some rain.
My next stop was Ikea. Given that it was lunchtime and the school holidays I obviously had a death wish. I did survive though and given that I came out with what I needed and only one extra scented candle and three extra plastic containers, The Shopping Gods must have been getting tired.
In other random farm news - we are officially seeding. I have big plans to get out in the paddock and take lots of photos and give you a blow by blow description of seeding. Unfortunately at the moment it still hasn't rained (although now gum boots have been purchased I am sure that will change tout suite). Every time I try and take a photo I choke on a cloud of dust and wind up with a photo of the same dust, with no tractor to be seen.
Can't wait for the Royal Wedding tomorrow. Have got the champagne on ice and am planning on watching it in my pyjamas.
Take care everyone.
