Crowing

 I've not bought stuff to cheer me up in years....experience has taught me that I always choose badly when I'm in that frame of mind. However, I very occasionally might make an unplanned purchase if I'm feeling particularly upbeat. Yesterday I was so cheered by the sunshine and the buzz of chattering people along the main street that I popped into a little independent hippy shop that I've never ventured into before in a quest for some more incense. They had some lovely stock and the most amazing smelling Nag Champa & Jasmine incense [now my new favourite] and oh yes....then there was this.....



With my love of corvids how could I resist this crow......I realise that this falls way outside the remit of the more common impulse buy, but then I never was a girl for shoes and handbags!!

  2. I kept an injured crow for months as no one else would take him and I loved him he was so clever. I have looked at them differently ever since.
