For Christmas 2010, my sister gave me a toaster you can see here. It has been much appreciated and much used, but, sadly, it stopped functioning a few weeks ago.
Especially for our extended breakfasts when RJ is here on weekends, I do need a toaster, but also for myself every now and then, and so there was but one thing: get a new one now, not wait half a year until Christmas comes round again.
I found this one - it was the last of its kind at the shop, and as it had been the display item, I got it at a slightly reduced price:
Doesn't it go very well with my other breakfast things, such as the cereal bowls (another present from my sis)?
Sometimes it happens to me that I come across an item at the shops at a time when I am actually not looking for anything, but the item clearly has "Meike" written all over it. Could be a dress, a pair of shoes, or - as it was the case the other day - a bag:
Of course I don't go to bed with a bag, but it matches the colour of my bedroom wall so well that I decided to take its picture there, this kind of light blue being my second favourite colour after yellow. The bag has the right size for an A4 file to fit in perfectly, and so it is very useful for work. It goes very well with one of my suits shown here, and I hope it will last for a long time - it wasn't expensive (not real leather) but doesn't look as cheap as it was ;-)
Oh, and just to show you how well the pair of trousers I got for my birthday goes with my new toaster, here's a "fashion shot" that makes it obvious to anyone that I am nuts about dots:
I wore this outfit last Sunday for the Horse Market parade. But - you guessed it - that will be the stuff for another (or several other!) post(s) :-)
Oh, and you can tell from my choice of outfit that Sunday really was a SUNday, true to its name!
