Today wasn’t just another Chaddy shopping day…
It was the BEST Chaddy shopping day!
You know, last Spring/Summer, I think I bought one item of clothing. One. A pair of shoes had already been bought before we moved, but that was it.
One. Single. Item.
You see, not only is it hard buying clothes, or anything personal for yourself when you have a young child, but it all becomes equally harder when you move into a WIP house that suddenly needs not just renovations and fix-me-ups, but ALL the renovations and ALL the fix-me-ups.
Money goes right out the window, door, down the toilet and gets lost in every house crevice imaginable in an ongoing project like that.
So naturally, YOU become last on the list of priorities.
However, in the last couple of weeks, I saw we were going to have some cash left over soon. This coincided with a couple of days of staring into my wardrobe and sighing “I actually have nothing!”
I had the most enormous run of luck while shopping, that even I AM STILL REELING.
I actually felt horribly guilty for Hubbie, who only bought one top. It’s a nice top, but still…
I even trumped baby girl, who ALWAYS trumps us. She got a small toy, we got her a small Christmas tree (watch this space!) and some storage baskets for her toys…
I got SO MUCH MORE (tee hee hee!)
5 items of clothing, modelled amateurly by yours truly

Oops! Here’s baby girl with her Frozen thongs, the cheeky thing snuck in but I still have more…
… The piece de resistance.
It’s the Campomaggi bag I’ve been eyeing off for months, the bag I mentioned casually in this earlier post, and the bag that after online research and video tutorials on how to clean the bag once I own it, I finally went in today and bought it.
The protective bag it came in
And the bag, front and back itself
My love 🙂
I am giddy with excitement. I feel brand new. :):):)
