You know how sometimes in a "surfaces, sweetie, surfaces" cleaning frenzy you throw something out and then regret it further down the track? Well a few years ago when we were shifting house I donated all of 14 Year Old Daughter's Barbie stuff because she was, like, so over Barbie and we just didn't have the room. I wish I hadn't though, she had a limited edition dress and a car with a spa pool in the back (as you do) and all sorts of cool clothes and the world's most annoying singing baby in a pram ever, which her Grandad removed the batteries from the day after Christmas Day in an attempt to save his sanity.
Still, what's done is done and I'm sure The Eccentric English Boyfriend will empathise and buy me this to ease my pain:
Oooh, I just had the BEST idea - I could totally make them into earrings. How awesome would that be?
