    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 photo calendar of the lads last year to cheer me through this one.

    I also got a pair of Converse trainers for £2 in a charity shop, about which I am somewhat chuffed!

    A Kindle Paperwhite in Cash Converters, great bargain at half Amazon's price. But it is going back tomorrow as it turns out to be listed as lost or stolen, which is why it wouldn't connect to my account. Ended up on online chat after faffing around for over an hour , to be told the sad outcome .

    Just bought tickets for Darkest Hour, the Churchill film, at our local Odeon for next Friday. Not my thing really, but OH does love his war films.

    Not exactly bought, but replaced.
    I bought my 2 year old granddaughter some slippers from Next, a few weeks ago, in a size 6 (baby 6 obviously lol)
    Well yesterday whilst I was visiting, she had a bit of play doh stuck to one of them, so I got a baby wipe to clean both slippers...and that's when I noticed....one slipper was a size 6 and the other a size 5..

    Anyway they changed them, but not with the same ones as they were all sold out...so another toddler somewhere is now wearing odd size slippers too...lol

    A bottle of Mr muscle sink unblocked -as I spent nearly an hour before work trying to unblock the bathroom sink and nothing worked. I ended up brushing my teeth at work!! At least Mr muscle is a lot cheaper than a plumber!
