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!
