Where's Alice?

I couldn't imagine using this image for anything else other than a 'late' birthday card!
Poor rabbit - he looks so glum! Maybe he's missing Alice? LOL
I have to confess - supposed to be good for the soul isn't it? Will it make me feel less guilty about the lack of finances I now have left in my purse??? Doubt it... but it sure made me feel good whilst I was disposing of the finances! (At least it did at the time!).
I was out shopping with OH when he remembered we needed a new outside brush... (he broke the other one during the recent spell of bad weather - I told him I didn't think you were meant to try and crack ice with the handle but ....... men will try to know better and in an attempt to prove I was wrong and he was right, he promptly broke the brush handle..... I resisted the urge to say those famous four words - 'I told you so' and thought smiling sweetly through this latest disaster might serve me in good stead in future.....) Once again I was proved right...........hence once the subject of the brush was brought up I seized my moment and suggested 'The Range' was near and maybe we could buy a new 'thing for breaking ice with' there..... Dear Husband ignored the jibe and that's how I came to end up spending. His fault of course - once he saw they didn't have what he wanted he took himself off for coffee thus leaving yours truly to the delights of paper packs - ah such bliss!
Who could resist?????? Certainly not me, so four paper packs and a considerably lighter purse later I went to find him in the coffee shop - he said 'You weren't long' - at this point I thought I'd better not push my luck any further and offered to take him into another shop where I KNEW they had the brushes!
