So I did decide to get myself into town yesterday and treat myself for my birthday (birthday is on Wed but have to do these things on Saturdays when Daniel isn't around / at school).
It was a lucky day to pick really because when I went into HMV, because of the Queen's upcoming Diamond Jubilee, they had all non-chart albums by British bands and artists on 2 for £10! Considering CDs are normally £10 each that's pretty great!
The two I really wanted - one by Noel Gallagher of Oasis and The Script's second album - were both on the deal! And I also got some others I had fancied for a while - Amy Winehouse's classic Back to Black album, Florence & The Machine's first album, a Take That album which was missing from my CD collection, and James Morrison's first album.
I also went to Waterstone's the bookstore and picked up a copy of Fifty Shades of Grey which all the ladies are raving about at school, and the sequel to Joanne Harris' Chocolat.
And kitted Daniel out in Marks & Spencer for his holiday clothes and a new pair of sandals.
THEN because the weather was so great and we were up early today, we went to the local car boot sale, and because every man and his dog were out in the sun, it was HUGE. Daniel came home with armfuls of toys and books all at 20p-50p a pop, we got some scones, cakes and barmcakes which we'll have for a picnicky dinner from a local baker who had a stall, I got three more books (trashy chick lit) for the holidays, and I got a Tommee Tippee steam steriliser, a white blanket for the Moses basket we got the other week, a cardigan and a onesie that says "Made in Manchester", and a soft Noah's Ark with soft animals in it for Daniel and baby to share.
That's what I call retail therapy bliss! And I do feel totally chilled out now!
