Today we travelled off the mountain and headed to Penrith.
Sorry, Penrith Plaza to be exact - another Westfield. There really isn't any other reason to go to Penrith otherwise, unless you go across to the beautiful Lewers Gallery at Emu Plains.
I thought times were tough. I thought people were losing their jobs and tightening their belts, not spending so much. Every shop has ridiculous bargains on. And we haven't got Rudd's handout just yet (but maybe others do?).
So why doesn't it seem tough? People were everywhere, buying like crazy on an Easter Saturday morning. Bags of stuff hanging off arms and prams. So are people really worried about what's happening out there? Do we all really have money to spend?
I must admit I was doing the same. Target had 20% off kids stuff and as it's getting cold here I wanted to get some baby sleeping bags for Theo. Then I saw thermal wool/cotton long sleeve t-shirts for her that were reduced and (on top of that) on sale so had to grab those as well.
Maybe it will hit home after Rudd's payout has been spent and there is no more play money. I wait to see what other bargains come about...
