Dear Cathy and Claire
I now have a different problem, and I need your help. Earlier today I went to Matalan. This visit was precipitated by my impending house move. I have a need for housewares. Because I have moved home twice in eighteen months, I have mislaid quite a few bits and pieces. Nothing of any great importance - but stuff like coffee mugs, everyday crockery, and saucepans, spatulas, wooden spoons, breadbins, kitchen waste bin, tea towels and so on. This, in itself is not a problem. The problem is that I actually enjoyed browsing. IN A HOMEWARES SHOP. At one point I felt giddy and had a big smile on my face. I had to take a deep breath and step outside.
Next I went into Curry's to compare and contrast various models of Dyson vacuum cleaner. This was even more serious because whilst inspecting the tools and attachments I found myself experiencing a 'damp pants' moment. I also had flushed cheeks (on my face).
I decided to leave the retail park without purchasing anything...but not before making a 'list' in my flowery notebook that resides in my handbag. I appreciate the seriousness of what occurred and am writing to ask what you think I should do next. If I don't take action I feel sure that soon enough I will find myself pushing a trolley around Aldi - and if that happens - well I don't think I could carry on.
Please reply to my letter as soon as you can - I am in dire need of advice. It's urgent. I can already feel the stirrings of desire when I secretly whisper the forbidden word 'Ikea'.

Feels like I haven't been on here for ages! (well...that's because you haven't you daft bint!). Anyway...I've been busy. Tea...

Tracy, this was me too. Jackie delivered every Wednesday, David Cassidy, David Essex and 3-part Starsky and Hutch posters all lifted carefully from the centre pages and pinned on the bedroom wall (no blu-tack back then). I now find I need a Sunday afternoon fix in Matalan and Curry's. I challenge you to go to Aldi though it is now where I do my main shop. Just look at the cars in the car park and you'll realise that a lot of high earners have also discovered the secret. Try the new face serum that is doing the rounds: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-1270848/The-new-miracle-face-cream-The-3-49-Aldi-Lacura-Multi-Intensive-Serum-beats-Boots-Protect-Perfect.html - it is fab! And also all the continental meats and cheeses and chocolate, smoked salmon etc. Which then leaves you with some extra pennies to buy dvds of David Cassidy :)ReplyDelete
