shocking day! Very horrible and I even had tears, luckily to myself far away from the crowds :(
But i'm better now and counting the minutes till I can go home and give my Stu a great big hug and kiss cause I love him so much and he always makes me feel like a princess!!
I had the most amazing day on Friday, it was just FAB and I loved having the time with Jo and Danni. Brought back some lovely childhood memories of us shopping together at Sandton City in Joburg! I met them at Harrods and we spent time looking in the Christmas shop, where I bought some bright funky baubles! and the bag section where we spied some lovely Kipling bags! Before spending too much money we decided that maybe some early lunch was in order, not a bad idea considering none of us had had breakfast yet! Settling on pizza we went down to the pizzeria on the ground floor. They do make YUMMY pizzas down there! We resisted the ice cream and Krispy Kremes for dessert!
After our lunch we went back up to the Christmas shop to look at the price of a fairy that I lurve but she was just too expensive and I couldn't justify the money, although if I had been on my own I probably would have bought it anyway!
So instead of a fairy I decided I had to have a new Kipling bag :D It's deliciously bright pink and very similar to one of my others but a bit bigger. And um actually I had two! the other is a tottie little cutie bag in the same bright pink with spotty buttons. I did forget to photograph my purchases but I will try remember to take a pic of the bags tonight!
After Harrods we jumped on a bus to High Street Kensington were we did an underwear shop in M&S. Man I just couldn't leave England and M&S, lol!! And had a browse around Boots were I bought some perfume and a mascara, it's the only make up I wear, when I remember, and mine was all dry and causing lumps!
After a coffee break we stopped into Argos for some towels for Danni and then got the bus to Hammersmith, which took an age and was so frustrating we eventually jumped off and walked the rest of the way. We met up with Tania, haven't seen her for yonks so it was good to have a quick catch up and of course she's not seen Jo for about 6 or 7 years.
I bought some plain black shoes in Evans for work, all my work shoes are falling apart so they've all gone to shoe heaven!
And at this point we were quite shopped out! Ready to drop! It took forever to get a cab back to the Ship in Mortlake where we met up with Stu, had a bite to eat and said bye to Jo. It truely was great to see her, she is like a new person and I love that she has taken control of her life and her weight, (she's lost 30 kgs in 3 months and looks terrific)!! She's got a bit to go but I think the battle is won as her head is right and that is the hardest bit.
Our weekend was good, we shopped (more!) on Saturday, I needed a coat and some work trousers, came away with work trousers and two new tops, but no coat! Stu needed more fireworks and I needed more wool to knit some scarves for Christmas. I got a pattern book online last week so I also tried to get wool to knit a jumper but my shop didn't have what I wanted so I had to order yesterday online.
Saturday night we went to Steve and Kirsty for jacket potatoes with sausages and beans and fireworks. They had a few and Stu added to the pile with his 54 sky rockets :O I know, it's obscene!! We had a great night and only got to bed at 2am, which is the latest we have been out in years!
Sunday we had to go to ASDA for a few bits, and landed up buying loads of DVDs so on Sunday afternoon I knitted and we watched madagascar and Home On The Range, neither of which we had seen before.
And all too soon it was time for bed and the end of another weekend!
One of my fav LOs done last year for the block competition on UKS. The photo is also one of my favourites and I felt quite intrusive taking it of a special moment between Stu and his niece.
Right and after that epic tale the minutes have certainly marched on and it's nearly time to go home. So I wish you all a pleasant evening and a good week!!
