My dad and I have been feeling pretty fed up over the last week or so with insomnia, bad weather and a general sloth attitude. We decided to go out this morning for some good old fashioned retail therapy at the nearest shopping centre.
I recently discovered that The Works has set up there-a shop I like to browse in plus there is a great clothes store called yours for plus sized people like me! I always check out Waterstones and HMV and try to walk past Thorntons...After two hours of therapy here is what I decided to blow all my money on!
I spied those three magic words as soon as I went into the shop...Game Of Thrones! Yes a whole huge display of Game of Thrones books, toys and collectable things! I kind of went a bit mad and started buying things. I picked up three 8 inch action figures on their own bases-Joffrey, Greyworm and Tywin, to add to my collection. These RRP at £20 but on Amazon can be a lot higher in price. I snapped up each bad boy at £10. Bargain!
Then I saw those 3D mask and wall mount things that I have just seen recently on a couple of blogs. Amazon are selling them at about £15 but the lovely people at The Works are selling it for £10 each! So I bought a Stark direwolf, a Lannister Lion and a Targaryen dragon! I dread to think how long it will take to put the buggers together!
Then I struggled on through the shopping centre with the bag already waering me down! I went into the clothes store Yours which is great for outsize clothes. There are even sizes BIGGER than me!!! A Girl Feels Good About That...I bought this winter sweatshirt...
It has those moving eyes and is very soft and warm and I love this! I'm all set for winter. Then I went into HMV and picked up three cheap films which rounded off a nice day.
Not a bad day out! Fun while it lasted but these shopping days knacker me (and my bank account!!!) but it was worth it!
Have you bought anything good recently?
