It was decided by Dan that I needed a treat last night to help get over the shock of yesterday. I think everyone else was on the same wavelength as I saw on Facebook someone else had treated themselves to a takeaway and others had gone out for a drink. I made some popcorn and we used a bit more of our Google Play voucher to rent the David Brent film, just what was needed on a Friday night.
Today we took my birthday money out to see if there was anything for me. I have recently had to downgrade my only cardi, favourite dress, and a jumper due to damage and general scruffiness, which only left me with two jumpers and a long sleeved t-shirt, so I wanted some warm clothes and a replacement dress. I have to say I did pretty well!
First purchase was a cardi for £1 from my favourite Animal Care shop, it's just a Primark item but I like it a lot, it's quite thick and just my style.
Second shop, Salvation Army I bought a black and white dress replacement, it wasn't bargain basement cheap at £7.99 but I like it.
Third shop, St John's Hospice, a jumper
I get the impression this was an unwanted gift at some point.
I also picked up a plain M&S black jumper £3, a grey jumper dress £3.50 a belt for with the Laura Ashley dress £1.50 and a jumper for Dan to wear for work £4. Loads of basics all in one go! I also took my book voucher but there was nothing I fancied so I'll leave that for another time.
Back at home and Dan's making bread and I'll be making a cauliflower and squash curry for later. The market stall was selling veg for 50p an item so I thought it would be a treat for tonight and something good for the freezer. eta, I didn't make the curry, I made soup and roast veg pasta instead.
