I Blame MawB ( not my fault at all!)

After reading the buying new boots thread started by MawB,
It reminded me that she had introduced me to the buying Skechers habit 😊 a couple of years ago.I looked at Amazon and found yet another pair of Go Walks to buy....a bargain!
Finger hovered over ‘buy now’ ( resistance is futile) .....they will arrive in a few days.
Now, what else can I save money on?

Poor Maw! I'm going to blame her for the pair of boots (which I didn't need) that I picked up from Clarks today! grin
It was reading her thread that led me to trawling the internet, I have no willpower.

They are lovely, even the assistant commented on them. I did put a pair into the charity bag, to compensate.
It's not really an excuse, is it? blush

And me ,very comfortable for my walking .So glad I have discovered Sketcher's they are so light,my walking boots were very heavy.

Personally, I blame MawB for global warming, the recession and the fact I have no chocolate in the house to eat.

She can take the blame for me having bought a pair of boots online this afternoon......

In my defence I had been looking at them for some time and they were in the sale.

Mea maxima culpa

But while I’ve got you here, have you checked out the Seasalt sale? Alas I bought this back in late summer instead of waiting for the sale. sad

Haha Ella ( you only have yourself to blame for scoffing all the Christmas chocs though.😁
Marydoll are you going to share the name or post a pic of the Clarks boots ( we may all want a pair.)

It's all Maw's fault that I've got bought these. Did I need more boots? No! But at £30, it seemed rude to refuse!

Maw introduced me to Woolovers. I have quite a collection now.

Chewbacca Wed 08-Jan-20 21:00:36

It seems to me that MawB is responsible for a lot of ££££££'s being spent by us poor, weak souls!

She’s a temptress wink

GrannyGravy13 Wed 08-Jan-20 21:07:58

MawB is the backbone of the UK economygrin

lemongrove Wed 08-Jan-20 21:11:35

Or.....a shopping activist posing as a gran?🤣

MawB Wed 08-Jan-20 21:11:59

Oh Chewbacca those are very nice! envy

lemongrove Wed 08-Jan-20 21:13:08

Oooh, I do like those Chewy ( leave them overnight in The Alphabet Bar) I will take care of them for you.

jacq10 Wed 08-Jan-20 21:18:12

annodomini - me too!! At the moment I am resisting tempation by not opening my e-mails from Woolovers highlighting their current sale bargains - repeating to myself "I do not need any more jumpers"! Last one was a pink cashmere and I didn't "need" that one!

Hetty58 Wed 08-Jan-20 21:19:59

I've moved away from Sketchers for boots and trainers as they wear down too quickly with all the walking I do. I still like them for summertime, though. It's Merrell trainers and lots of Fitflop styles for me.

Madgran77 Wed 08-Jan-20 21:39:54

Skechers ...I'm a fan; anyone tried the skechers boots for winter? They are equally brilliant

Madgran77 Wed 08-Jan-20 21:41:50

If you like sea salt you would probably like Mistral too!wink

gmarie Wed 08-Jan-20 21:53:05

I just ordered a pair of Tardis slippers from Ebay. Drat. Can't blame MawB for that. hmm

Scribbles Wed 08-Jan-20 21:53:15

I would never ordinarily have said this but, since we're having a blame MawB day .... I blame her for the recycled cashmere poncho I bought to fend off the icy draughts of winter.

My regret is that it hasn't been really, really cold yet so not much opportunity to snuggle in it.grin

I shall probably blame MawB, too, when I give in to temptation and buy these boots in the Zalando sale.

MawB Wed 08-Jan-20 22:22:39

Hurray Scribbles if it was I who pointed you towards the wonderful Turtle Doves !
PS love those boots...
