The target was Target. No doubt about it. She'd paged through her brochure collection, she'd begged me to buy a guidebook, she'd made a note of everything - everything - which needed her attention just as soon as she'd arrived. BUT, once the tickets were booked, it was obvious she had one seriously big goal in mind. And that was Target, that discount wonderland, that distant dream.
It was right there on the very first page of The (Not So) Small One's Big Book Of Florida: noted under Shops I Want To Visit (also Walmart, Barnes and Noble and anywhere with an extensive confectionery aisle), cross referenced with Things I Might Buy - oh so many things, just little ones, but nothing costs very much and if you save hard and arm yourself with some luggage scales from the Pound Shop you can do some hard hitting bargain hunting damage, right?
But maybe I should let her tell her own story:
Orlando, Florida. It just screams magic. I mean, you've got walt Disney World, Harry Potter, the list of theme parks and attractions all claiming the title of "most magical place" goes on...To me, howver, it is Super target which is pure magic. This glorious haven of notebooks and candy is all I need> From water bottles to clothes, groceries to bicycles, it has it all with the added American novelty and a Starbucks on your way to the exit. In my opinion nothing can beat it..
That's the story she told when I asked for one. for a page. I had been pulling together some ideas for Jot 7 (OUT NOW): a scrapbooking bucket list, things, scrapbooking wise, to try at least once in your scrapbooking life. You can find them in Jot 7 (OUT NOW). I chose one and practised what I preached by using someone's else's journaling. And I discovered how freeing it can be! For once I wasn't thinking about the words. I just enjoyed sticking things down, knowing that The (Not So) Small One was in charge of the recording. I'd do it again tomorrow! in fact, I think I probably will because she has quite a lot to say on the subject of Twizzlers. Seriously, I can highly recommend giving it a go. That Dangerous Notebook I talk about? the one the family agree can be a little bit worrying? I'm passing it round..
You'll find Jot 7 right here
