    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?

    A garden umbrella, a workmate, some extra long drill bits and a 2018 diary from Amazon.

    A book from The Book Depository.

    4 pairs of jeans from Peacocks.

    And £20 worth of tat from Wilkos which includes piles of wild bird food, cheap filled bones for me dawg (only £1 in there, £1.65 in Tesco) some screws , some teeny tiny drill bits, cheap refuse sacks (75p for 30, that's ruddy cheap these days) face cream (although an iron would do a better job methinks) and some jolly powerful clamps (to go with the aforementioned Workmate)
    Some people only exist as examples of what to avoid...
