RETAIL THERAPY?

Ventured out to the shops today to buy my poor husband some holiday clothes. I came home with 3 pairs of sandals & 2 tops (for me) I might add.

Felt guilty for at least 10 mins so I hid them under the bed till our holiday,

Don't know why Coz he is the most generous person and wouldn't mind a bit.

This fibromyalgia does strange things to your brain like buying stuff you don't need,

I'm not even into fashion so no excuse I'm afraid. 👠👠👠👕👕👕

Hi Jan28

I can completely relate. Have done the same thing and have bought myself some new clothes. It has done me the world of good. Was just what I needed! X

Well done you for getting out and wandering shops, try not to cloud your fabulous achievement today.

Enjoy the pleasure a little longer, by walking those sandal's in a little at home before your holiday.

Strangely enough this retail insanity with Fibro is not restricted to the female of the species as I have been known to spend a bob here and there in a very unthrifty manner? Just enjoy the buzz you got but try not to make a habit of it. I genuinely hope that you have a wonderful holiday.

All my hopes and dreams for you

Payback for my dastardly deed. It's 4.45am and I haven't slept a wink.

I could say it's my conscious bothering me but the fact that my legs, ankles and spine are all cracking and painful is more to the point.

Oh well it was nice while it lasted. I hope your are all in the land of nod unlike me.

Payback time lets see what tomorrow brings pleasant dreams all zzzzzzzzzz

Sorry you couldn't sleep, but as you say it was probably the activity of shopping and not your guilty purchases :)

I have done the same thing and then my hubby says "Oh but you deserve them" and guess what! it only makes me feel worse about spending :D :D

Had a pair on today sooo comfy. Thing is he didn't even notice just like the time I went out with 2 odd shoes 😂

I'm doing something wrong! We go shopping and end up buying more for hubby than for me!

I need lessons from you Jan28............................

Don't take him with you or tell him where your going, take a friend instead.

Good luck 💃🏼
