    Hi all

    I thought Id tell you all about my great shopping trip today. I have been putting it off for ages, as I cant stand going shopping with the kids (4yrs and 1 yrs) but had to bite the bullet, because I needed some more clothes.

    SO, just as I was about to leave, my sis in law came over and said i could leave the kids with her!! BONUS!

    I recieved my NUS (student) card this morning (i started an open university degree) and got about £15 off my shopping!! BONUS!

    AND

    Went into New Look and bought a size 12 top!!! Now I am now normally a 16 (and still shrinking) and there must have been something to do with the shape and/or cut of the top, but i dont care IT WAS A 12!!

    So woohoo!!

    I felt so chuffed with my little trip that on the way home I stopped off and bought the guinea pigs a new cage (RANDOM)

    Sorry for the indepth rant, but I have come home to an empty house still on a high!! So I had to tell someone!!

    Get in there!!! Student discount cards are such a blessing - remember to waggle them in every shop you go in. They've saved me a fortune over the years, in fact, probably the reason why I keep going back to Uni again...and again...and again!

    Best Shops are:
    Topshop
    New Look
    Dotty P's
    Hair dressers
    Theatre tix
    could go on and on!!!!

    NUS has a list of student friendly shops - and it never hurts to ask!

    Well done again xx

    Go Mel. Size 12 is wonderful- can you believe it? Did you have to pinch yourself? Imagine back in July someone telling you you'd walk out of a shop with a Fab size 12 top you'd hardly be able to believe it.
    WELL Done you.

    Xxxxxx
