Out Spending Money...Again

Out Spending Money...Again

But I wasn't frittering...I was being sensible...most of the time anyway.

We went to Heaton's today...it's a store rather like Primark...cheap and cheerful and full of stuff you'd actually quite like but don't need.

They had a sale on across the store and joy of joys, one little suitcase thingy on wheels...it's exactly the right size for my ambulant oxygen and the interior straps hold it securely...it is sturdy and well made and was only nine euro...now I can go off down our lane pulling it behind me and won't have to lug it over my shoulder.

And I bought a rather posh cycle gadget...endorsed by none other than Davina McCall...I think she does fitness videos...not sure actually. It's very small and compact and has two pedals...obviously...and it can be adjusted for tension so it's either quite easy to pedal or quite difficult. It has an in-built computer which shows you how far you've travelled...how many calories have been gobbled up and your heart rate...I've had a little go on it, but Himself took it away on the pretence of adjusting it...he's been playing on it for ages...he's exercising his arms on the table now.

I went to the Hospice shop as well...and found some books I've not read before and a sort of old hippy frock that'll be grand with leggings.

All in all an excellent afternoon...hope you are breathing easy and keeping warm...we have a bitterly wind suddenly come from nowhere.

    the chat about genealogy and the lds church or mormon as you call them......i dont know if you know this but the lds have their own website to do your family tree search like the ancestry site you use and as you know they have masses of info to research it may be better than the one you use but im not sure of the prices it could be free

  • I love Heaton's as well Vashti. Sounds like you had a great day and no longer need to buy an exercise bike.

  • Are you also in Ireland Argana?...Heaton's have such lovely bits and pieces...I need to wear blinkers when I go in there...lol

    No exercise bike needed now...this gadget seems to do the job perfectly well

  • Yes I am Vashti but much further south then you. Have a big Heatons about 10 minutes drive and love poking about there for bargains.

  • What a lovely day you had.......your exercise thingy sounds good.


  • It's excellent...I actually got it from Argos and it does the job well.

  • Hi Vashti, I love shops like that. Trouble is, I always come home with things I never knew I needed that end up in a cupboard. Lol.

  • Nothing like retail therapy for us ladies! Makes the world a better place. Take care
