    Last thing you bought? 28th Mar 11 at 2:58 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?

    If there's something specific that you want, the leftovers from the sales are a good place to look. Debenhams for instance, still has quite a bit in it's 70% off section. Quite a lot of it is tat now but there's still some good stuff in this and the other sale sections.

    I love sales. We don't have a Debenhams that close to us. I think the nearest one is either Bristol or Taunton. When OH next treats me to a day out I might beg him to take me to Bristol shopping. I love bargains.

    I remember when I left I did say the stains I got on the old one could be washed out with an effective detergent. Still, at 20, why bother?

    I just ordered an electric hand-held massager. It should come tomorrow or the next day. There's no medical need here - we just thought it might be Interesting.

    Sounds nice. I've never been a "proper" student. I feel I've missed out now.



    It's a book called "Random Acts of Kindness" by Danny Wallace. It's been going around loads of MSErs for a while. When they're done with it, they send it to another person. I would be honoured to send it to you when I've finished with it?

    ooooh! yes please. Sounds like my kind of book. I think I've read a few quotes from it in other books. I'll PM you my address if you want?

    That's what I should do with the new one as well - no more ironing

    Sure. That'd be great. The book is really inspiring. It has things in that you wouldn't even think of doing before reading it. It's awesome. Think I'm going to buy myself a permanent copy too.
    I've only just got it so it might take me a while to send. I hope that's okay.

    What book is this? It sounds like something I might be interested in judging by LM's response. PM title if you want.

    Last thing I bought was a dog behaviour class at 30.
