shopping!

I'm learning how to shop...and I can't say I enjoy it that much.

However I managed to buy a pair of boots yesterday.

Then today I went with Daughter and family and braved Cardiff!! So I couldn't chicken out without getting what I needed and we had time out together.

Result- proper sized underpinnings after being professionally measured and fitted. A pair of smart shoes that look good AND that I can walk in! Two tops and a cardigan. Also I know what style trousers I need.

I think I should get sewing again! If nothing else it saves braving the heaving hordes!!

Good shoes, good glasses, worth more. In some areas, you really do get what you pay for.

You have my admiration. I hate to shop. I once received a marriage proposal based soley on that fact.
The interbet is my saviour :-D

Sorry I never realised that women learned how to shop, I always thought it came naturally to them - O live and learn :)

HV I have never had much, and that that I have, has always gone to my children. I have been brought up by my grandmother with " make do and mend" and never buy what you can make. Nothing wrong in that.
To a point. I've never learnt to buy for myself and I've never had the money to get enough decent stuff to make it last.

How interesting. I have real problems in buying anything for myself, although I'm delighted to spend on others. I hope the underpinnings are a truly uplifting experience?

umm...they are indeed, RR.

we mothers often say that we happily buy for others but baulk at the idea of buying for ourselves...

I hate spending money on clothes and shoes and bags and bling, refuse to do it until forced by necessity

but recently I did buy some new shoes and now my wonky knees and swollen ankle are thanking me, I wonder if a girdle would help my back :-)
