Something Old, Something New

A workmate rang me this week from down the coast and said she was sending up a bag of clothes for me to go through for our kids. It turns out a friend of hers had passed on the clothes but it would be years before her little Miss could wear them so rather than keep them in a cupboard she thought of us.

The bag arrived today via another mutual friend and work colleague (the social network at it's best) and it was full of wow. I mean every time Tracey pulled out another skirt she would literally go, "Wow."

We chose half a dozen items and the rest I'm taking into work for the other parents to look through. We could keep them all but there was more than enough quality Pumpkin Patch in the bag to go round.

This afternoon Tracey ducked down to Target with the skirts to match up some nice new tops and guess what? The tops were on sale for $4 each.

I loves me a bargain.

Thank you Karen for being so thoughtful x

About Me

My photo

Bruce Devereaux is one of the nicest people he knows. When not at work he enjoys reading, writing, hiding from his children and not changing nappies.


His career, and if we used the term any more loosely an e might fall out, has included a gardener, a personal lender, a console operator, a stop/go man (not as big a bludge as you might think but great if you’re into sunburn, abuse and varicose veins), a cleaner of banks and pubs and, for a very brief period, a door to door salesman (until the last door he knocked on was answered by a very scary woman with tremendously hairy legs).


Bruce Devereaux currently works as a forty-five-year-old award winning customer service officer (glass statuette available upon request) for the Bank of Queensland and as a very casual employee for Corrective Services. He likes to believe he excels at both but then he has always been prone to exaggeration.


His favourite colour is green, with a picture of Dame Nellie Melba on one side and General Sir John Monash on the other. His favourite flower is self-raising.

 If you see him around town, call his wife immediately - he's probably snuck out and left her alone with all the kids.
