Am I mad? Yes. Yes, maybe I am.
I ventured out today with baby girl to Chadstone, arguably the biggest shopping centre precinct in the southern hemisphere.
At the end of a week, on a Friday.
4 days before Christmas.
Oh, the horror! She’s mad, mad I tell you!
But, I went in with a certain mindset.
I was in a really good mood. Sparkling, really. And I said to myself –
“Look SmikG. It might very well be hell in there. Getting in, getting around, and then getting out. And you have a child. Just expect the worse, and go with the flow.”
Along with my little pep talk, was my new little brand of awesome, being my recent Christmas-for-me purchase, my Be. Bangle.
For days when, you know, you need a little extra, you need that little bit of background encouragement, reminding you that all is good.
For days when you need to remember, simply, ‘You’ve Got This.’
And boy did I HAVE IT. If this is my track record with bangle, then damn, I am sleeping with the thing for the sweetest of dreams, because…
BEST run in.
A fairly decent car park that didn’t take long at all to find.
A subsequent 4 hours where baby girl and I shopped ’til we dropped.
And then, an easy exit.
WHAT?!?! Are you freaking kidding me?
Yep. ALL TRUE.
Christmas shopping pretty much done, and I am super grateful to say the least. 🙂
