Christmas shopping




I am one of those mothers who likes to take her kids to museums for fun and buy her kids educational toys. Fortunately, most of the time my kids seem to like this! Our trip to the UK this summer had a Roman theme - Bath, Chedworth Roman Villa, Roman tour of Chester, Wroxeter Roman city . . . So when I saw that the British Museum shop has a free shipping offer on right now - including to overseas addresses - I had to take a look. Oh dear! I could spent quite a lot of money there, and not just on the children! Well, I'm sure I could get some of those things here in the US, but some of the things I like  are British Museum exclusives. Hmm - may have to browse some more and put a wish list together!

By the way, if you click on my link to the shop and end up buying something there, you could help defray my expenses shopping there as I do get a commission on purchases made in the next ten days through my link.

The places you mentioned are all places on our to do list. We were thinking of going to London Sunday and including the British Museum, but think we will save it for another time. I found your previous post on accents very interesting and you touched on may points I have often thought about. It's true within our own country there are some accents that are difficult to understand, let alone other countries. I see you have me as a link -thank you and I will add you to my sidebar. Happy Thanksgiving (at least you get that extra holiday!)

I remember my first visit to the UK waaaayyyy back in '88 we went to the British Museum and I found the most amazingly exclusive scarab bead necklace which I spent far too much on and brought back to the states with me and found it went with nothing. But I loved it because no one else had one (apart from any other British Museum shoppers who equally fell under it's charm). I think I still have it somewhere (gathering dust). I shall indeed click on your link and see whats there right now!

I love museum shops :) Tate modern is probably my favorite, but the British Museum comes in second.

I know, I know. I'm late on this, still finding my way round here, but you have just possibly ruined my bank account.
