I'm happy. I got two pairs of great pants today - new, not my usual secondhand.
We went to Parramatta W-shopping nightmare today which is a big trip from the Mountains. It's getting so cold here and my usual jeans and tracky dacks are looking pretty bad and I wanted trousers! I got a pair at DJ's, black Table Eight reduced to $36 from $119.95 and a pair from Sussan for $29.95 reduced from $79.95. As you can tell, I still don't like to buy retail and LOVE a bargain. Both are great and fit perfectly which always amazes me.
As I get towards W-shopping nightmare, a strange buzz comes over me. They are the scariest places in the world, controlling all consumers on what they wear, eat, sleep in, etc and are so so dull and boring. There is never a quirky interesting store, and you know that if you go down to the next W (usually the next suburb or two away) they will have the same old shit there too. But back to the buzz, I can feel the frenzy - 'it's new, it's on sale. it's something you don't have, use your credit card'! Frightening...
It really is best I stay in the Mountains.
