267/365 'Have you ever been in an ad'

Here pom pom creation

She is still buzzing after this morning
The crafting aftermath 

 Today marked the first day of holidays for us here.  Miss 15 wanted to go to training and although it wasn't my ideal start to the day (I had visions of a sleep in today) I took her.  Miss 10 and I headed out to do our usual grocery shopping while she was training.  With list in hand we wandered around and noticed a camera crew videoing staff serving customers.  Miss 10 wanted to go over to get into the ad, me not so much.  We joked as we walked around about looking our best just incase never did I think that we would be actually in the ad.  So minding our own business we were doing our shopping when we got approached to be a part of the ad. Oh dear being in an ad when I was a child I would have jumped at the chance but as an adult not so much.  I wasn't keen at all but Miss 10 definitely was so I gave it a go anyway.  I was asked questions, we wandered around crossing groceries off the list, doing lots of smiling, having the camera in front of us and behind us, watching us pay and follow us to the car and as a special bonus my trolley of groceries was paid for by them!!!  We may or may not be in the ad who knows, there might just be a snippet of us shopping,  but if you see it try not to giggle too much, I know I'll have to try not to giggle. So today I learnt to go out of my comfort zone that's for sure which even if nothing else I'm glad I did it and smile a lot when I'm shopping!


  1. That sounds so fun...I think. Am with you but how cool to catch a snippet of yourself on the tv....was it a big chain supermarket......paid for groceries huge bonus. Xxxx happy school holidays...we are on week away. Xxx

  2. LOL...what a great story!!! And YAY for free groceries! Love all that pom pom goodness by the way...and your flower shots...INCREDIBLE!!!!!!!!!!!!! Do you own a macro lens Catherine? I'd love to add a macro to my lens collection.

  3. Oh how funny! I'd be so self conscious and uncomfortable too... good on you for doing something out of your comfort zone! x
