I don't know what's wrong with me and shopping. I've tried sensible. I've tried 'buy everything'. Neither works for me.
The approach I am using at the moment is 'see, try on, replace, wait 24 hours and then buy'. Or rather 'see, try on, replace, wait 24 hours and mad scramble with much iffy driving and cursing of learners and red lights - to make the shop after work with about 10 seconds to spare before it closes.
What for? The soundest of reason: to buy a dress I didn't know I needed of course.
That is, I didn't know I needed it until it occured to me that the orange colour would be just right with my pumpkin Bayswater bag (very old factory shop bargain) which I don't wear as much as I should. And it looked quite nice on.

I am puzzled on reflection as to why it is only reduced to £28 (from £55) when the sign said 70% off - even with my dubious mathematical skills that doesn't quite add up - but such was my dizzy excitement at having beat the clock I didn't register this until later.
Other random purchases have been made this month - to follow in tomorrow's post. A White Company sweater and a jacket I didn't want but 6 year old begged me to keep. Bet you all can't wait!
