But first, I had plans for coffee with my Nan on Saturday morning, and nothing would get in the way of that, so drugged up to the nines with painkillers I made my way into town, stopped at the library on the way to choose a new book, before meeting her at M+S for a filter coffee and a chocolate chip cookie.
Once we'd put the world to rights and parted ways, I wasn't feeling too bad so decided to make the most of the voucher I'd been handed at the till and book myself in for a bra fitting. While I waited, I picked up my Accessorize order - the Cara Camera bag from my wishlist post, and I already love it. I was pleased to see that with the "ready for collection" email from Accessorize, you're given a code for 10% off anything you buy in store when you go to collect your order, which is good to know!
I did a few other errands, making use of the 10 books for £10 offer on children's books in The Works for my friend's little boy's birthday later this week. Although I can't post a picture of the actual books, as I know my friend reads this blog, I was particularly excited by this one.
After meeting up with a certain someone, I was pretty spoiled for the rest of the day, which certainly worked to cheer me up. A pretty Topshop necklace, a Brit-Stitch satchel and a cute Nelly Jane pirate brooch later, and we went off for my fitting.
M&S had vouchers in store which were offered £5 off if you spent £30 on lingerie, so I ended up getting this pretty floral longline set, as well as this purple lace one. Even though actually being measured brought me close to tears, I guess it's good to know I'm wearing the right size for me.
After another coffee and chat, we headed home and got changed and ready for a party (I wasn't full of enthusiasm, but am glad I didn't just stay at home like a bore in the end). The next morning, I was due to meet a friend in town for her birthday breakfast, and I accompanied her on her errands afterwards. I really didn't mean to come home with these Marks and Spencer shoes, or a new DVD, but it did keep me occupied during an afternoon of sewing.
I don't often do these kinds of "haul" posts, but I wanted to do something to remind myself of a lovely weekend turning out better than expected, I suppose. And, you know, pretty new things..!
