Hello friends. Happy Thursday. So how are you today? I am a happy bee as it is my day off from work today. That means one thing, SHOPPING!!

Pink Animal Print Dress & A Black Polo Neck Jumper. Thrifty Thursday.

Pink Animal Print Dress & A Black Polo Neck Jumper. Thrifty Thursday:

When I get a Thursday off work, I try to go out for a few hours with my mum and daughter, shopping. Making fun memories and boy do we make those.

We usually end up laughing so much at my mum because of the silly little things she says or does. But not just my mum, I have been known to do or say lots of daft things too. It’s no fun getting older, well it is because we laugh so hard it hurts.

Getting older you donโ€™t half do some silly or embarrassing things. Or say the most random things. But all good fun. We will never forget our shopping trips, that is for sure.

So random but I will give you a bit of an idea of some of the thing’s that happen to us!

Thrifty Thursday.

Our Shopping Trips Are Never Dull And Boring:

My mum once shouted out what she thought of someone, very loudly (because she’s a bit def and doesn’t care what people think anymore).

They were moaning at us going in a shop and they wanted more room to get out so my mum just said what she thought, very loudly.

Can you imagine! They were the type pf people who no one would usually answer back to either. So you can imagine the look on their faces. They were as surprised as us.

I once brought some basketballs and when I went to pay I said, I said sorry the money stuck to my hands from those sticky balls!!

They were so sticky but I didn’t realise what I had said until I looked at my daughter and she was bent over double laughing! I was trying so hard to keep a straight face but my voice turn funny with trying not to laugh.

Like the time I gathered up all my mum’s things, daughter’s things and my things and money to pay the cashier in Primark. When she was running the things through the till she asked me if I also wanted to pay for the jumper on my arm as I forgot to pass it her, Red-faced or what!!

It was actually the same jumper as this and almost my skin colour. Surly it would have dropped when I moved my arms!?

The time I was explaining something to them both with my hands and nearly took a woman out. Only nearly, I just managed to miss her.

Thrifty Thursday

Best Leave It There:

Yeah, I best leave that one there, now!! I am guessing this is like the fishing trip on Gavin and Stacy now isnโ€™t it? Half a story and left you wondering what else has happened? Ha!

I could write a post on random embarrassing things you do on a shopping trip, after the age of 40, couldnโ€™t I!? Please tell me it is not just us who do random funny things on a shopping trip?

Anyway Back Onto The Photos:

I brought this dress on one of our shopping trips from a shop like a charity shop but not. It sells lots of brands seconds or old stock. This dress was only ยฃ5.00 and was originally Wallis.

I knew I loved it before I brought it and it looked great when I got it home and tried it on. I took it on a trip to London with us and look at me here. Thinking I own the place!! LOL

What I Wore: Dress: Wallis via Thrifty Shop || Black Polo Neck Jumper: Primark

    It must be so much fun to go shopping with your mom and your daughter. The three of you make memories you’ll cherish forever. The black sweater is a perfect complement to the pink, animal print dress. Animal prints have been so popular recently, but usually they are done with tan or brown tones. I like the pink color as an alternative.
