It seems that Someone has been on a spending spree with my credit card this weekend. There is no firm proof but our Much Loved and Much Blamed Bear, Solomon, is under suspicion. I mean, who else could it be?I cannot explain how he could reach the counters or even put the PIN in with such furry paws, but I can say that at least he has taste. I have confiscated the following goods ( which appear from the receipts to originate from Penrith on Saturday and an embroidery show at Trentham Gardens today).
Fortunately much of the booty coincided with the Supply list for a Studio Journals class I have signed up for, so I have decided not to involve the Fraud Squad as it is possible he was only trying to save me shopping time. The books on the other hand seem to be merely a gleeful shopping trip. His response under caution to that allegation was, "But they are out of print." I have bailed him while I read the books for evidence of his defence.
