Just back from a mega shopping trip with E. We have the prom dress.


It looks gorgeous - E is pleased and happy with it, which is great (and the most important thing). Still have shoes and bag etc to get, but those are relatively minor details.

We also got some books (of course! - if you know us!) I found the new Jodi Picoult and bought it - rather an extravagence as it is only available in hardback, but it was reduced by £6, which is my excuse.

And, at last, we went to Build a Bear and both got bears! This is mine:

It was a fun thing to do. When H and I get to MK I will make one with her too. She had said she didn't want one, but seeing ours has changed her mind.

Now home, both shattered! But mission accomplished - for two people who really aren't that keen on clothes shopping, today was quite an achievement!

Super dress...she'll shine, I'm certain. Must remember to badger the Dufflepud about his DJ..And YOU GOT YOUR BEAR :-)
I'm delighted about that - and it looks a sweetie too :-)

Hi again C

Beautiful dress. Belle of The Ball jobby.

Thanks, Kathryn. She's surprisingly nervous - but I think she will have a great evening to remember, and she will certainly look the part! The bear is gorgeous, and I have been hugging him this evening. I remember your words some time back that everyone needs a bear - now I have mine!

Thanks Mandy - yes, I believe she will be!

the dress looks wonderful..
and the bear is good - does he have a name?
pleased you had a good day,

Disillusioned said...

Thanks both.
The bear is named - Curly! After last night I can safely say he is very cuddleable too...
