Well its almost the end of the year, so almost the end of 'pick your precious' over on Sians blog.
This month I've picked the photos of Cameron, me and Mark on our living room wall. At Camerons baby shower I got some great gifts including a voucher for Venture, a photography company. It included a free photography session and a picture worth £75. Now you would think for £75 you could get a pretty decent picture, nope, it was a normal 6x4 one!
We went for the photo shoot when Cameron was a few months old, and a week later we went to view and pick them. I thought it was going to be like in Boots, they show you some on a computer screen and you pick them, nooooo it was salesmen genius lol. They sit you in a little cinema room, give you a glass of wine, play soppy music and show you them all in a slideshow on the screen. I was so emotional! Before we went in we had set a budget of £250 which got either one large photo in a frame or two small ones. By the end of it I would have remortgaged the house to get them all! In the end we bought this set in the frame.
No spend November is going well :) I've decided to list everything I do buy on my blog to keep track, and also to shame me into sticking to it!
