    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?

    I am on one of my mini breaks, picnicking in my hotel room. Popped out earlier to Tesco Express to get something for my dinner, came back with a bag of five custard donuts . Only three left now...

    In person, two tayberry plants two loganberry plants & three Aldi bags as I love the Scottish humour on them.
    Online, a set of paints that only someone who routinely paints at 1:300 & other blisteringly small sizes could love. (I married a good mate who could cook & had a few hobbies.... Long as they aren't gambling & other women, we're good.)

    I hit Primark

    2 jumpers

    Pair of gym leggings

    Pair of jeans

    6 pairs of knickers

    card full of earrings

    Nightdress

    Jeans and hoodie for Mr S

    Then onto TK Maxx and a pair of boots and a hairdryer and a very nice handy first aid tin

    Thing is though I had bought 6 pairs of knickers and the gym leggings once before in August , now they are too big for me and keep falling down
    if you lend someone £20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it
