Narwhal Novelty Slippers

The bloke got me these Narwhal novelty slippers  £9.99 from eBay for Christmas – how adorable! ^_^

They are available in adult and child sizes but I still had to try them on to see if they’d fit. They are SO COMFY but if you have high arches and feet that are a size 7, you will need to sit down to pull them on. So if you plan on taking them on and off frequently you might want to try and find backless one’s. Me, I intend on living in them; might even go to the local shops in them ;o)

Star Map from Modern Map Art

I was offered a Star Map by Mordern Map Art and decided it would make a lovely Father’s Day gift as my Dad has always taken an interest in the stars, the planets and our universe in general. The map shows exactly what the stars looked like on the date that you specify from the latitude and longitude of your chosen place.

There is a feature on the website which allows you to customise all of your Star Map. You can choose from colours, borders, fonts and the tittle.

The map arrived promptly, rolled up in tissue paper, inside a sturdy tube. Dad said it was a wonderful surprise and that he was going to frame it in a simple contemporary frame “to do it justice”, rather than just having it as a poster.

Dad declined to appear on my blog as he’s “Not into all of that socialised media” and has “No intention to start Twittering any time soon.” Fair enough, I say.

I’m thinking I’d quite like my own Star Map now; maybe for my next birthday.
