How cute is this !!
I'm a really sucker for nice stationery, especially notebooks and this little one jumped out at me and begged me to buy it. (It's available in National Trust shops if you fancy one for yourself.)
I end up with lots of lovely notebooks, but I use them and that's the difference in my opinion between wasting money on knick knacks and spending wisely. If you can find a souvenir on a day out that will make you smile every time you use it for months to come after it's purchase then it's worth every penny. The fact that this little chicken also reminds me of Molly, one of our very first rescue birds and my all time favourite chicken is just a very special bonus.
And this little beauty lives in my handbag ready to jot down notes for things I want to Blog about and for jotting down a quick shopping list when the one I made before my journey out is suddenly remembered to still be sitting on the kitchen worktop.
Three pounds very well spent in my opinion :-)
