Reason to Be Cheerful, Ecstatic and Completely Overwhelmed

Do you see what this is? No, your eyes are not deceiving you. That is, indeed a bag chuck full of Cath Kidston. Yes, it is hanging off a handle of our front cupboard. It is mine. All mine. And I am in Cath heaven. All this time I am complaining about our lack of Cath. Remember? Well on Thursday I received an email from a girl named Joanne that told me she visited a little shop last summer, not far from here, that had, you guessed it, Cath Kidston items. Are you kidding me? Not only do they have CK items, but they have had for about 4 years! Do they realize I sent my mum to England for Cath? I have googled "Cath Kidston" and "Canada" many, many times. Never, ever did I get a hit on this store. And to top it all off, they are no longer going to carry her line. Would this be considered irony? So I quickly gathered up all my favourites and there they are, from their now limited selection. The book bag, napkins, a paper tablecloth and tea towels. Oooooh I want more. How gluttonous am I?

You just know I am going back, right? Those lovely wellies have my name all over them.

I am so happy for you that you got over to the shop and picked up some Cath Kidston deals! I am sorry that she will no longer be carrying Cath but it sounds like you found some treasures!
Good for you!

I am simply drooling!

So disappointing that they won't be carrying it anymore, but so happy that you found out about it before it was all gone! :)
Enjoy your new treasures!

Wow! What a haul...enjoy every bit of it!

(Can you not implore them to continue stocking CK items? ;>)

Thanks so much, Joanne! But I think I will be going back again.

And Vee? Don't think I haven't thought of bribery ;)
