Last weekend I spent loads in the Salvation Army shop. I bought winter clothes for the kids. Except for boots and gloves, they are almost completely kitted out (until the next growth spurt). 8) And we got a giant fuzzy bunny for free. My son carried it home in the child seat on the back of my bike. He was all but buried under it, floppy bunny ears flapping in the breeaze behind...
