I want never gets....

My Mother always used to say "I want never gets"...but sometimes in life .............you just have to figure a way around these things!

I have always wanted a Cath Kidston radio but am never going to get one (they cost nearly £200!!).

I didn't even get the retro radio I asked for for my birthday, (I was in hospital with Georgia on my birthday) and Argos had sold out of the cream retro ones so my DH bought me a modern one. Still the sound quality is good though so I can't complain...... but it still wasn't quite my dream kitchen accessory!

You should have seen his face drop when I mentioned that I was going to alter it!!

I felt guilty at first but what the heck..what was it that William Morris used to say...everything must be both beautiful and useful.

...and now it is thanks to these pretty Girls Paperie papers and a lick of Mod Podge.

Love and rock n roll
