What I Bought This Month...


1. dress
2. sports bra
3. pj bottoms
4. 2 charity shop books
5. bra

I was a bit naughty this month and bought a new dress from Asda, I really love it, I was really miserable because I've lost my job and I was with my mum, who is always a bad influence ...well, that's my excuse anyway...I like wearing it but only if I try not to think about the children who were probably paid 1p to make it and the fact it's from an evil supermarket...eek!  From now on I'm going to not slip back into bad old habits of buying something 'to cheer myself up' but to do nice things to fill my time instead, like going to a walk or making something or playing the guitar.  I also bought 2 new bras (very necessary, my old bras weren't working!) and a pair of PJ bottoms, the PJs and the sports bra were only £1 each in Marks and Spencer's sale.  The books were only 15p each, one was Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro, which has a reaaaaallly long waiting list at the library so I thought I'd give it a go...I wonder if I'm the only one who thinks it's rubbish?  I'll give both the books to my National Trust place when I've read them.


This bag has some old t-shirts in, a new duvet set that I've never used, some notebooks, some finding Nemo teddies and a pair of shoes.  The pile is stuff I'm going to sell online, 2 dresses, 2 bags, a top and some jewellery...


  1. I read "never let me go" too on a recommendation, found it rather depressing to be honest, it won't be one that I'll read again.

  2. I love the pattern on that dress... and wish it were spring/summer here so I could wear a dress but it is supposed to snow tomorrow! Check this out if you feel like splurging! :)

  3. Kezz - I agree, I won't be sad to give my copy away!

    Thanks Shannon Marie - we're having lovely weather here, it seems strange it would be snowing somewhere! At least you get to wear cute, snuggly warm things!

  4. Oooh, i love the bag with the red! ;-)
