Some new clothes

Usually when i go shopping for clothes i come back with nothing for myself and loads for the children instead. I can’t help but buy the kids bits and bobs when i’m out.
As soon as i walk into a shop i go straight to the childrens section, it’s like a magnet, if i walk past something i like in the adults, i walk past and go back to it once i’ve looked for the kids. On Saturday me and the mother decided we’d go to Metrocentre in Gateshead. Taking Jessica with us (i feel lost without a pushchair to push and child there). We arrived in the area around 2:30pm and the queue into it was on the motorway. I thought it wouldn’t be as busy as it was with the time, but then we are now in December and it was a Saturday, so common sense should’ve been used and noticed, that yes it would be heaving! Nothing was stopping me from going shopping though!
We found a space quite easily, caught someone on bottom floor coming out, bonus! No driving around for spaces or being on top floor.

Walk into the first shop Debenhams and yes, it was packed! We made our way through the traffic of people and bags and out the doors of the shop into the centre. Ahhh Metrocentre!!!

I passed shops i normally go in, as i said i would go to them on way back to the car because they were too busy. We found a stall of Yankee candles and treated myself to 2 small candles, 1 for a Christmas display and 1 for after Chrsitmas to display. My shopping virginity for that day had gone, i always find it hard to buy that first purchase, as although yes i did go shopping to spend, i still don’t like to spend money either.

Next shop my favourite for clothes, shoes and accerories and anything else they sell. Primark, otherwise known as Primarni to others. Got my basket and away i went. First trying on and i liked alot but needed different sizes, 2nd trip to changing rooms and have 4 blouse tops, shorts and a dress to buy, in the basket they go. I find more to try on and off back to the changing rooms i go, another top later, and we finish the changing rooms. Boots found and in basket along with many other accessoires.  We then head to the childrens, Yes childrens AFTER mine! I finally cracked it, gone to my things before kids and actually bought a fair few items, including my snug ladybird onsie, SO comfy! The mother bought me, some shorts, blouse top and the boots for Christmas out of Christmas money, so i now have to wait until the big red jolly man comes to the houses before i get them back lol.

Come out of the that shop and head for Mcdonalds for some tea, it’s 6!! Where has the time gone? How long did we spend Primark!? By the time we have had our tea it’s nearly time for closing, i never made it to them other shops i was going back to, i spent the last 30mins in a gorgeous shop full of handmade soaps/bath bombs and sponges that have soap blocks on and when you use it the soap fluffs up on the sponge, never seen this before, loved the idea! Also handmade burning shapes that smelt delicious! I treat myself to a bathbomb, it lasts 6baths!! I have never seen a bathbomb that does that! How fantastic i thought, and for £3.99 it is quite a bargain! I couldn’t resist. I LOVE bathbombs! This is where she gets her shop supply from, if anyone is interested and likes bathbombs as much as me.

So although i only got into 1 clothes shop i actually got a fair few new items in my wardrobe, along with some other bits and bobs.

Whenever i go to shops to buy clothes i very rarely come back with 1 item, all in all it was a great shop from me.
