    I spent several hours looking round the Trafford centre last night, at lots of lovely things...and didn't buy anything! Not a scarf, top, shoes (unheard of for me!)...

    It just wasn't working for me. I felt quite fat in everything (I was between sizes 14 and 12 depending on what shop I was in), but at the same time, feeling quite thin... weird!

    I think I just decided I need to have a wardrobe clearout at home, sort what fits, what doesn't, what I can ebay and what can go to charity...and then do some serious shopping when I get to target!! But it's weird I didn't even want to buy anything to tide me over...

    What's happening to me?!?! :cry:

    I know what you mean Hellie - I seem to be walking round and round shops at the mo, picking stuff up, putting it back... walking out... I really need some nice work clothes but all I see is summer stuff (for holidays...).

    I've also started to do a huge clear out of my wadrobe - am going to car boot it as it would just not be worth my while spending the time to list it all on E-bay... as long as I make £100 I'll be happy!

    Fern, I could have written that myself :D

    I can't even buy a bag and I LOVE bags! I can ooh and aah at them but can't make a purchase...

    I can't wait for it to come back. And neither can Mr Visa. He's worried about me!

    Hellie, just read more of your random witterings on your blog, you have a way with words! Good reading chick!

    PS, I'm sure your mojo will come back soon, just think how much you will spend when you get to target! Such fun.....

    He would tell us that we have fabulous bangers (well, those of us who still have them!) and find us clothes that make us look and feel amazing and so much more confident!!!!
