I,m off for a holiday with my son and daughter -in-law , just one week over easter . So, this week I have been after a swimsuit and a dress . I gave my swimsuits away ,so needed one , I might indulge in another, £12,99 at Asda , not exactly breaking the bank .
Tuesday I decided to go to town , the sun was shining and I knew if I stayed home it would be the usual bit of cleaning ,bit of tidying, bit of gardening , sewing and same things that are done everyday ,so off I went . I browsed around , all I bought were 4 avacados , and 2 magazines . A man on the market sells the previous months glossies £1 each ,one called Place in the sun , the other Park homes and caravans, they are what I call lollipop reading and when I pass them on someone else can suck the lollipop .
Wednesday, off I went again . I threw 2 saucepans in the bin and decided I must replace the small non stick one . I bought a really quality one from T,K Max £4,99 with a lid , but on the way for the saucepan I poked my nose in the House of Fraser discount outlet. Immediately a dress caught my eye . I looked at it , mulled over, put it on the back of the rail hoping it might still be there when I had mulled somemore , I took 2 steps away , 2 steps back, took it to the fitting room, It now hangs in my bedroom . It,s beautiful , I feel good in it and I have not bought a dress for a long time, the assistant said "can you get here Thursday or Friday , were having 20 to 50 % discounts " , I might just do that .
While in the town I had lunch , as well as the saucepan and dress I bought 3 more magazines , 2 called Olive, they are BBC cookery , superb mags,.and being out of date it doesn,t matter , I think they are far more up to date on ingredients and recipes than expensive cookery books . The other mag,. is House and garden March issue , You cannot get better than that .
Now after slumming around in my nightwear I,ll have a shower but one more thing I want to do before closing my lap top . The bungalow opposite has just had an estate agents board put up , I want to suss out the price . Being nosey helps the world go round .
