This afternoon I went shopping. My brother gets married in a few weeks and I wanted to buy a pair of shoes. I had forgotten how much I dislike trekking round malls. All the shops sold exactly the same thing and not what I had in mind at all. There I was, walking round in flat shoes, jeans and waterproof mac feeling distinctly scruffy, while everyone else was made up to the nines and wearing their best clothes to buy more clothes to wear to the mall next time.
After 2 hours I had had an argument with Bee, my feet hurt, and I was thoroughly fed up. We came home, and I’ve decided to wear a pair of shoes I already have. (There’s a story to those shoes which I will tell soon). I want out of all this consumerism. Last night I was talking to a former work colleague who shared my views – I really think that the simple life is attracting more and more people.
Tonight I have got something to look forward to. I’m meeting up with some friends on Frugal Hill for a party – we’re all bringing our instruments and we’re going to have a bit of a jamming session. OH has even dug his keyboard out and will be taking that too.
How are you spending your weekend?
Until next time, Tawney x
