i can't wait to hear about the outlet trip!
We kind of celebrate American Thanksgiving in my house too since my husband works for an American company .. LOL ! I have seen the "Black Friday" events on TV -- I am amazed at what people will do for a bargain .we don't celebrate Thanksgiving here in the US until the last Thur in Nov
Then the next day is "Black Friday" to kick off the holiday shopping season
Lots of deals and steals - wake up at 4am and stand in line for a $99 computer!! LOL!
80 degrees here is around 26 degrees Celsius - definitely unusually warm weather for right now (at least here in Chicago) - normally the average temp this time of year is around 20 degrees cooler than that. It's gonna feel like Summer tomorrow!
Hey, I LOVE doing laundry .. LOL! I hadn't hung clothes out to dry since I was a kid, but then I went to Melbourne this past Spring and almost everyone there hangs their stuff to dry because of the cost! I prefer the dryer myself -- I have never liked the smell of clothes hanging outside and it didn't help that pollen would always find its way onto my clothes !Oh yea!
I'll be enjoying it -- probably doing laundry and hanging it outside to dry!!
Isn't that exciting?!!
Seriously - we don't have a dryer and I hang everything to dry - I love hanging things outside, so it'll be nice to squeak an extra day of line-dried clothing before I have to retreat to the basement for good (for the next 6 months!)
Black Friday can be dangerous - I think it was 2 years ago a woman was seriously injured during a stampede at WalMart. People are nuts when they open the doors and everyone charges in! I usually go out that early if there's a REALLY good deal on something I need and/or really want (like one year, I bought a Digital Camera and another year I bought a new computer.
We have rules like that here in certain condominium corporations, but otherwise, I have never heard of that happening. You are right --- you would THINK a city would WANT to conserve energy??
There are some towns around here where its a City Ordinance that you CAN'T hang clothes outside to dry! I guess they say it "dirties" the neighborhood and/or makes it look less clean. You'd think in this day and age of everything "green" that they'd encourage outdoor drying, but no - they WANT you to use a dryer! I can't imagine being told that I CAN'T hang my clothes in my yard to dry!
I did! I was very antsy to get out of the house, so I ran to my local Target to scope things out. I thought what they did have in stock looked rather cheesy. I understand why you decided to return the denim one. Unfortunately, even though it is a premier designer creating affordable merchandise for the average person like myself, it looks cheap. I was very disappointed. The only one I thought that was remotely cute was the small black crossbody bag, but for $30 I didn't love it. I'll check it out again when they get more stuff in, but I don't think I'll be walking out with a purchase.Just curious -- did anyone here go to Target today to check out the Mulberry bags? I ordered the Denim Bayswater online last night (I had a $25 gift card plus a $5 coupon and free shipping!), but after seeing it today in person I'm definitely going to return it. I did surprise myself by getting the Pink Leopard Bayswater. I never pictured myself with a pink leopard bag but I LOVED it!!
