You may remember a few weeks back, I went out with a couple of the mums from Little Mans school to celebrate one of their Birthdays. As the evening wore on, the Birthday girl, after one too many Sea Breeze's, decided to confide in us that she would be £50 better off by morning. Bewildered we asked what she was on about and basically, her explanation was, that everytime her husband wishes for her to partake in a particular bedroom activity, she says "get £50 out of your drawer then". It turns out that he keeps a load of cash in the drawer next to the bed and pulls out fifty quid when required. The rest of us were quite amused (as you can imagine) and I thought I would keep that one up my sleeve for an appropriate time.
So this afternoon, after cleaning the kitchen from top to bottom, I texted OH to tell him how busy I had been and he responded with "best go and have a rest on the laptop then". Well I didn't need much prompting despite the fact I have RSI (from too much laptop use) and having been on virtually every website known to man over the last couple of days, realised that I hadn't checked out Gina for a while. As I entered the site I wondered if they may have a sale and sure enough under SHOP was a SPECIAL OFFER section. Now ladies you know I have been trying really hard to build up a capsule wardrobe and am a great believer in that evening shoes should be gold, silver, bronze or black to eliminate the need for loads of pairs of shoes, so was most excited to see these Gold and Swarvoski crystal beauties reduced from £475 to £195! I knew immediately that I had to have them, but have spent quite a bit of money lately, so decided a text to OH was in order using the Birthday Girls approach to fashion fund raising.
Me: I have found a lovely pair of Gina shoes in the sale and wonder how many .... .... would get them for me?
OH: How much are they?
Me: Deal! and what do you want for supper?
Can you believe it was that bloody simple? So I have placed my order and am so excited, well until bedtime that is!
If I don't get any comments I am gonna be real scared that you completely dissaprove of my behaviour, so please let me know everything is OK and that this is quite normal, they are Gina after all!
