    Last thing you bought? 28th Mar 11 at 3:58 PM
    I swear there was a thread on this but I can't find it.

    Anyway, what was the last thing you bought? (it can be anything...no matter how small. ).

    I'm not feeling very well today so after my hospital appointment OH and I went into town and I bought a cropped denim jacket. I used to have one but I lost it in a GP surgery somewhere.

    So, how about you?

    yes, I've had a few of those recently - I took out what I thought was a sweet spice sauce to have with a sponge pudding. On defrosting, discovered it was turkey broth!


    last thing I bought were some sausages and a barmbrack - one for dinner tonight; the other for breakfast tomorrow.

    Scalp micropigmentation for £1900 - yes it's a lot of money but I'm happy spending when I know it will make a difference to my self-esteem.

    Today's list rather high - as it included agreeing yet another bit of work on my house (yep...hundreds of £s then) and the yearly gas service.

    Apart from that - two sourdough loaves of bread (it's too hot to want to make my own). A pack of skirt-hangers. Another loaf of bread. A packet of seeds (food variety). A packet of green salad. Some cherries. Three cheap replacement teeshirts.
    If there's "4 tendencies" type of people (Gretchen Rubin) = yep....Questioner type here
    - Meets an expectation only if they believe it's justified and resists anything arbitrary or ineffective
