At first glance it appears I've been a little piggy this morning and indulged in a few too many chocolates.
I have indulged but not in chocolates. You see, the other week I had an hour to kill before work so I decided to just go window shopping. However, I only got to the next block where there was a Cass Art store and I gleefully skiddled inside. Easy to waste and hour there drooling and trying to contain myself. I didn't completely contain myself though. I swapped £50 for art goods. They have such great sales and seem so much cheaper than I could get things back in Australia. With the idea of being back in Australia very soon--my two year UK adventure nearly at its end--I decided to go ahead and pick out a few things to add to my shipping boxes.
One of the things I splashed out on was a bigger watercolour pan. I have a travel size one with 12 half pans which I really like and I decided I just couldn't go past this bigger bargain. £20 for 45 half pans! The box said RRP£69.99 and I checked out individual half pan costs and they start from £3 each so it really was a phenomenal bargain. This morning I unwrapped the little treats. Thirty nine different colours with a few double ups of the more common ones. Then I had the simple pleasure of painting up a rainbow colour chart.
