But my purchase from Marks and Spencers was even more exciting than the cardigan and dress.
My very first pair of Sexy Boots!!!!
I have lived to the grand old age of 36 and never owned a pair of long boots (and we are only talking up to the knee - not Pretty Woman style thigh-highs!)
When I was younger I could never afford them and now I'm older (and they are cheaper!) my legs have always been too, um how shall I put this? Well, fat.
But those bootless days are gone! Yippeee!
I had a friend with a similar leg problem who got boots a couple of years ago and woke up in the middle of the night with sheer excitement at having finally found a pair that fitted!
Now I did promise to show you what I bought on Tuesday night so here it is
I love this sign and will probably keep it up all year (once I have found where I want it to go)
And I know I shouldn't have bought this doll as I make my own but the colours were so jolly and she was really rather cheap!
Finally I got this lovely little decoration for my tree.
So after all that shopping I should really be getting on with some sewing but top of my to-do-list today is
Look after Poorly-Dorothy-Child!
Now I did mention sewing in my title - but you will have to wait 'til next time for that!
