I did a shopping! I did the *most* shopping!
Employee could finally get scheduled a daytime shopping, so I had to do All The Things, or at least all the things that are not at Sainsburys.
I got three new pairs of dancing slippers from Head in the Clouds.
I got a most excellent pirate hat at Beaujangles. ... it is too small, I think, which might make it only medium excellent, but it is for the pirate party at Redemption, and it is sufficiently excellent for that for £8.50. I bought a headband too and somehow will attach it to the hat to make it stay on. Or possibly will take it to chaos costuming and make sad face...
I did the donating at Oxfam so I got solar power and clean water and some foods for charity people.
I got new handbag on the market, one that is not held together by my keyrings, though I'm not quite sure of it yet and might get a different one instead. It seemed like the best at the time and it has the same zippers in the same places but ... well probably but I dislike change even when things have fallen apart twice now. It'll do to be going on with.
I got a new chain for my tardis key, though it is not as long as the old one. Technically I have some 'army dog tags' but it's quite the cheapest way to get a chain, I checked many places first.
I looked for a new coat but found that coats can be Very Expensive and don't tell you useful things like if they're warm and dry somehow even when very thin. And then the other shop wasn't where employee thought and then we went in the mall and the things were too much and many and I gave up on that bit.
Boots had vitamins and wipes for the first aid draw.
Waterstones did not have the rest of the Temeraire books. It had space on the shelf. Probably someone else has them.
Jarrolds has books in the basement but not Novik.
I shall order online.
Rainbow Wholefoods does have Cheesly :-) which is not awesome but has actual protein in pretend cheese form. Some of the others do not have any. They shouldn't call themselves cheese.
It only had two left though, so I'll have to go back sometime. If I still like these kinds. But still, achieved.
So I have shoes, a hat, a handbag, a chain, vitamins, and cheese.
That is a very plenty extra successful couple of hours.
It was also a whole bunch of traffic jam and annoyance.
But I win at shopping.
And now I have two or three hours of lying still before it is time to go dancing.
... I'm stubborn, so I am going, but I maybe might end up doing sitting down dancing.
