In which I grab a bargain & other things

So for the last week I’ve been on holiday from work. This holiday has been less of a holiday and more than a hibernation. However I ventured out yesterday morning to the shops, and again today… managing the get a lovely little dress with pink (so unlike me!) flowers and piping on it, which was from one of the random little shops in the North Laine.
Talking of random shops, the new Alice in Wonderland shop has opened opposite my old flat in Gardner Street… its so pretty!
To get a bit more energy for battling the Saturday shoppers (and dodging potential pupils for my teacher-friend!) we stopped off at Choccywoccydoodah for a hot chocolate!
I then found THE prettiest dress…. reduced in the Oasis sale! (here is a stock picture as I am snuggled in my new primarni brushed cotton night shirt, reclining on my new primarni cushions)
It was £15! and it has the best sleeves ever (aka they cover bingo wings but still look puurrtty!)
After that we marched off to Primark to exchange a pair of PJ bottoms that t go over Sams thighs… and I bought the afore mentioned snugglies!
I walked home away from the crowds and took my normal short cut through the St.Nicholas church grounds, and they were open for visitors so I popped in to see what the inside of the church is like (it is on our potential wedding venue list!) as its the prettiest church in Central Brighton and is actually lovely inside! A doddery old man gave me a tour and pamphlet and let me know about the history etc… so now its a definite maybe!
I’m a bit depressed about going back to work on Monday, but I have actually been missing it so its probably time to go back!
