More purchases!

Went to Chatham Dockside Outlet and then onto Bluewater today.  Just felt the need to get out and do something, and what better than a bit of retail therapy!

I was hoping that the shops wouldn't still be filled with just the leftover old tat.............and I wasn't disappointed. 

First of all I wanted a new purse and bag. I didn't manage to find the right bag, but this is the purse that I got:


At one of my most favourite shops....The Range...I got some tea-towels.  They, as always, had lots of lovely bits but I had to restrain myself.




I couldn't resist these at £2.99 for 3, and they were something I actually needed.




The next thing I was so excited about, I nearly bought more than one!  I didn't even spot it in the Next outlet shop but luckily I have trained my Missy Moo (daughter) very well and she knows a pretty when she sees one!!








It is a little bird house and is even prettier in real life!  It even says "Home Tweet Home" above the door.  While we were queueing up to pay the £5!! for it, I said to my daughter that I wanted to keep it in the house so I could keep looking at it.  Her reply was - that she would like to live in it herself!


This has cheered me up from the January blues and really made my day - how easily I am pleased!

  5. I'm easily pleased too. I have to get to the Range at the weekend, I need new teatowels and those Cath looking ones are perfect!

    I love Bluewater. Haven't been for ages though. I need to introduce my darling daughter to the delights of Lakeside and Bluewater, she'll love it! She's already a great bargain hunter. Every time we go to Early Learning Centre, whatever she says she wants is usually reduced or on offer! Takes after her mama!

    have a lovely evening.

  6. we're in suffolk, so it's not too bad to travel to Bluewater or Lakeside, well, traffic permitting!

    Luckily for me, we have The Range and Dunelm here, or I'd be totally gutted! I love Ikea too, but haven't been there for years.

    When my little girl is a bit older, then I'll happily take her there, with lunch at Harry Ramsdens (if it's still open), seems a bit cruel to drag her all the way there now. She's happy enough with jaunts into town, and loves to go into starbucks with me. I have a caramel macchiato, she has a massive choccy coin.

    Safe to say I've started her off young! She'll have a lifelong love of shopping now!

    stay cosy. very dark and rainy here today. :o) x
