1) Howies – this great ethical street & sportswear brand are a cut above the rest, impossible to find any in Australia though. I feel a spending spree coming on during a trip to the UK in Sept.
2) Green – it’s probably a spring thing but really enjoying the colour Green.
3) Parcels in the post – always nice to open a parcel first thing in the morning, on this occasion it was some lovely new Patagonia gear.
4) Magic Markers – last week we had new Sharpies, this week new Magic Markers.
5) Nintendo Wii – the Wii sports golf has taken a bit of a going over since it’s arrival, now looking forward to stepping up to the full Tiger Woods version.
