After a few years I decided it was a good time to reward my patience and actually buy something online. I decided on two things: stitching materials and books. Shocking, right?!
Well, It’s been 3 years since I last bought any manga’s, stitching kits/materials or any other random things that I used to buy before. Its not like I saved any money by not buying anything, is just that I stopped my impulsive shopping. It became an addiction in getting things by post every two weeks and it was not healthy for my budget, the free space in my room or my mental health in general.
So, after much deliberation I bought 2 needlepoint kits, both from Krif.ro. The first one I liked because it resembled Marlanu’ in a way and I can always do the background a different color. Its very easy to customize it to your own needs and cute at the same time.
The second needlepoint kit I just loved it. It’s just beautiful! Its like in video games, you go to the next level. No mode 20 colors and small size stitching, but 30+ colors, the stitching will require more attention on my side and also it is pretty big compared with what I’ve stitched so far.
My second purchase was for 6 books, all of them were written by Georges Simenon. There were on sale and I took advantage of it. The Maigret books are the only ones I cannot find online in audio format or in any other format. It’s not that I mind buying books, heck no, its just that he is Belgian writer, his books are in French and my French is not what it used to be.
I think if I try hard enough I might get some books in French, but at the moment I’ll stick to English and Romanian.
Hopefully, soon the post will come and I’ll be one happy hippo.
