Look what I found in my In-tray

in-trayIt’s wonderful how versatile baskets are – cats don’t discriminate between basket categories. Smidge knows its much more fun & rewarding for us to stroke the cat than deal with the contents of the in-tray.





Our other cat Ziggy  takes possession of the Classic Rattan Dog Basket. Teddy our Australian Shepherd (Dog)  may be allowed to use it when she’s out or has found an alternative basket.






Beat the carrier bag charge!


Monday October 5th finally saw the introduction of the 5p charge for carrier bags in Supermarkets.

Don’t get caught out – why not keep the Supermarket Shopper from Kosmopolitan in the boot of your car so that you need never spend 5p on a plastic carrier again.

It has sturdy leather handles, bags of room and oodles of French style!
