A few bits and pieces.

Nothing exciting today at the Brotherhood shop, but everything was half price, so I grabbed these items.
I have parkas and jackets of all kinds, but no actual rain coat, so when I saw this for $6 (reduced to $3) I thought it was worth while getting. It's a bit like a Drizabone, big and floppy, but great in a heavy downpour of rain.

My key ring is getting knocked around, and I don't want to lose any keys, so this brand new leather key wallet for 50c was a bargain. Problem is, I can't figure out how get the keys in those holders. The MOTH couldn't even get it, so I'll have to take it to our local key cut bloke - hopefully he will know. Otherwise it will end up back at the opshop; I'm wondering if that's why I found it there!

Suzannegrae top in dark chocolate brown for $1 (originally $2). Most of my summer tops are pastel colours, so this be a change now and then.

Rolls eyes and giggles about parka. You'll be needing that in Melbourne! (I'm from Sydney!!)

Yes you may indeed need it Gina as tomorrow is forecast to downpour... those poor Derby Day go-ers :S

Re your key case. I have one the same. You squeeze the little loops and they unhook at one side.

LOL Nessa and Jac - you don't need to rub it in about Melbourne's weather - I was born here!
Julie, thanks for explaining how to open those key holders. I asked our local key cutting man and he showed me, but as soon as I got home I'd forgotten again :-(
