Following a sucky Centrelink apt (yeah yeah, I’ll apply for things other than speech jobs, but if there are speech jobs there, I’ll still be applying for them as first call) I got some retail therapy in – Target, Big W, Best & Less, and Lifeline – to get a few more summer things….
HUGE fan of Target’s ballet flats – I’ve worn through a lot of cheap, colourful shoes from this range over the last few years (this is a good thing)! Today I got the beige ones for $15, and the red and orange ones for $7 a pair!
A couple of cute Avella floral dresses – knee length and sleeveless ready for summer – from Big W for $25 each. I wanted to buy another one – a long atrappy maxi dress in blue – but someone had ripped a few seams presumably while trying it on, and there was only one in that size :(
Another couple of spaghetti strap summer “Hi-Lo” dresses from Best & Less – I do like how the women’s range goes through from size 8 to something in the 20s while still having cute designs and the same prices – $20 in this case!!! (and are comfy!)
Then $4 well spent on a pair of shoes that was originally $130 according to its inside sticker!
And I FINALLY got me some sickly GRAPE Hello Kitty Body Spray ($3 this week instead of $5 at Chemist Warehouse!)
Many of you expressed concern that I may be distressed by the news.
Adjusting to this, I was tagged several more times. I thought about shutting off my phone and going back to bed.
But I persisted.
It may come as a shock to you, dear readers, that I only found out last month that her full name is Kitty White. Which I thought was just purrfect, because, while it fits as full first and last name, it also fits with my nephew’s backwards syntax. He calls her Kitty Hello (he also calls frankfurts “sausages red” and chocolate coated ice creams “stick brown”). Ez calls Hello Kitty “Hi Kitty”…
I think that I may feel like Hello Kitty is even MORE like me now… She’s a catgirl too!
But, yes, I am holding up okay on this revelation, thank you for your concern. I’ve gone through my five stages of grief, and come out the other side. I still love Hello Kitty.
