Chuckles Goes Shopping!


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?

  1. omg a Game Of Thrones Shopping spree !!! I can't get any better than that! Glad you found clothes to make you happy too! I need retail therapy too! I can't remember my last one, unless my obsession for shopping for cheap stationery at the dollar store counts [winks]

    1. Dollar store splurges can be just as much fun when you see stuff you really like! I get like that in our pound shops...my dad goes mad on the cheap dvds!

  2. Nothing like a little retail therapy to cheer a girl up! I HATE dealing with annoying people and do most of my shopping online but every now and again it's nice to just spend some time looking at stuff.

    1. I have to go to shopping centres when they open up in the morning and the crowds haven't built up yet. I hate when it gets busy. I avoid the place from Black Friday on until after New Year!

    1. It certainly cheered me up! Now I need to look at how to put those masks together!

  5. Sounds like a fun time. Glad you and your dad got out some. That's a great deal on those figures and I can't wait to see the masks put together. You'll have to let me know how difficult and time consuming they are. I really enjoyed Patriot's Day when I watched it. Now that the truck is out of the way, I need to concentrate on Christmas shopping.

    1. I'm not artistically gifted so I can imagine I might struggle with the masks but they'll look great when they are on the wall! I'll post again about how they were to build and display.
