asking for trouble

Weekend Wrap Up

M&S made a follow-up to my favourite tin! Immediate purchase.

It’s been another busy week, and all my parcels have been arriving much more quickly than I expected so I’ve got lots to blog about soon. We also finally got a bit of extended sunshine so I took the train to Dumbarton yesterday for some shopping. Buying a biscuit tin from M&S was actually on my list, but I never expected to find one as awesome as this! It’s a follow-up to this tin, so I’m very happy to have both.
