Supermarket bounty

I was cruising the aisles today: milk, apples, pasta, washing liquid (2 bottles - potty training seems to have regressed of late), wine, more wine... when what should leap into my trolley, but a new magazine.

Charlie and Lola do crafts! What could be more fun. You can dress Lola, decorate a mermaid,fill your lunchbox, design a dragon, colour and stick on stickers.

So would any of you folks unlikely to find this where you are like a copy? Because I'm kind like that and bought two. Leave me a comment (with an e-mail address attached to it - this is Blogger - you have to help me out a little) and I'll draw a lucky winner to sent it off to early next week.

Now excuse me, because me and the boys have a little cutting, sticking and colouring of our own to attend to.

Oh my, yes! What with there being an actual Lola in our house, we're very big Charlie & Lola fans. VERY big.

Lucy said...

Oh what fun that sounds. We would love to be crafty with Charlie and Lola. Just think of all the wonky things we could make.

Heather said...

My son is a huge Charlie and Lola fan. This would be right up his alley!

julia said...

You're such a kind mummy! My poor daughter was dragged away by her cruel harridan of a mother because I didn't realise it was a crafty type magazine. We'll certinly get it next week!

Oh my goodness! We love Charlie and Lola in this house. My son has even incorporated several of those great C&L phrases into his vocabulary. The other day he was running around and announced, "I'm faster than a speedy, speedy cheetah!"

And, because I don't see a box for an email address on this form, mine is megan@mfiles.us. ::crosses fingers::

Yes, yes. I read about this the other day but didn't see it in the shop. I am, er, I mean - MY DAUGHTER IS - a huge Charlie and Lola fan. (Yes, I really do have a 4-year old girl) ;)

greetingarts said...

Oh wow! I would certainly love to get that magazine! And even if you don't pick us as the lucky winners, would it be possible to do a swap of some sort for another copy the next time you get to the store?

(I think I linked to my email address... but you're right, this is Blogger after all... I can always resend if need be.)

Sarah said...

It is cool isn't it. My son had great fun with it, and now my house is covered with glitter (again)

Louise said...

When you mix Charlie Lola, craft AND mermaids you're on a winner in this house. Hours of entertainment!

Allison said...

Tilly has been into all things crafty lately. Scissors, stickytape, drawing, you name it. I've been buying up those kiddy supermarket magazines so she doesn't hound me for sweets - I haven't seen the Charlie and Lola ones though! Please count me in!

Oh Wow - we only get UK's Heat, OK, Hello etc in Singapore so this is special! Charlie and Lola are FAMOUS in our house, especially as Little Leather Man's best mates are Charlie and Lola in real life. He and Lola had their joint 4th party only last weekend. Count me in for the lucky dip - I'm putting a request in to Grandma in UK for future copies too. xx
