Let me explain, G has to buy presents for one person!! I can hear all the gasps yes girls just one and that's me. I buy for absolutely everyone else, his family, my family and ours (I bet it's the same in your house?).
So yesterday after weeks of endless moaning about doing his shopping he decided that we (yes I did say we) would go into Glasgow to buy presents for me. What he wanted was for me to go round the shops and point out things I liked then I would come home and he'd purchase a random selection! (I have been dropping hints for months but obviously on deaf ears) Sounds so easy BUT I been here before, by the time we've visited half a dozen or so shops then had lunch he can't remember what I pointed out where! So this year I armed him with a note book and pen so he could write himself a list as we went round, organised hey. I even put all my sizes, colour preferences, fav shops and brands in the front just to be extra helpful.
So we arrive in Glasgow, visit the Cath Kidston shop, I drop heaps of hints. Then onto the continental market which was dismal and a complete disappointment. Next Monsoon and Accesorize again loads of hints and onto starbucks for coffee and a yummy sticky ginger muffin (it's okay I'm allowed I was at the docs to be weighed first thing yesterday morning and as I've now lost the grand total of 25kg I'm giving myself a breather over the festive period). Anyway whilst devouring my half of the yummy muffin (lol you didn't think I'd eat a whole one?) I realised that I hadn't seen him write anything, his response "oh I thought you'd do it!!" G then received a stern talking to which I won't go into details about but included "I'm not your mother", "your 55"," if you loved me" oh yes and "for gods sake"!
Anyway more shops were visited more hints given and I did see him write something in John Lewis but can't garauntee it wasn't something for himself.
So we had a lovely lunch in John Lewis (their food is always great although service is slow) and then I left him to get on with it. As I had nearly an hour to wait for my train I decided I'd have a little mooch around the shops myself not that I needed to buy anything as I've had all my presents for ages.So I ended up in accessorize again and there I found the most gorgeous little jumper and leg warmers for Daisy of course, they're navy with a lovely fairisle pattern just so so cute how could I resist. So no photos yet as I wrapped them as soon as I got home but will put loads on at christmas.
Well between leaving G at the shops and getting home I had 4 phone calls the ultimate being "you know that thing you said you really liked what shop was it in? oh and what was it?"
I GIVE UP
