The Worst Black Friday that there ever was in the history of Fridays… Ok so slight exaggeration, but today hasn’t quite turned out how I would have liked.
The biggest day of the year for sales and I don’t have two pennies to rub together.. Bollocks! There’s always loads that I want to buy (I guess that comes with the territory when your a shopaholic) and today of all days I can’t buy anything.
Black Friday has always been an American thing. A flash sale on the Friday after Thanksgiving. If I had known Black Friday was hitting the UK I would have been in training for months. At least I now know for next year.
The other tragedy that came my way happened last night. I bit into a strawberry bon bon and half my fucking tooth fell out!! So an emergency appointment at the dentist today and I am down £42! 42 British pounds I didn’t even have to spend. Thank you kindly to my dear Father who gave me £40 last night. (Very generous man) If he hadn’t I would have been gummy until after Christmas! I did actually manage to salvage the bit of tooth that broke off and my boyfriend kindly offered to superglue the bastard back in. I wish I had taken him up on his offer now. No more sweets for me. The annoying thing is I’m not even a sweet person, I much prefer a packet of crisps.
So the moral of the story children : SAVE YOUR DAMN PENNIES! (So then you can go shopping on Black Friday) And be happy and merry and full of glee and Christmas cheer.
I did manage to find a few silvers floating around in the bottom of my handbag, so tonight I shall spend my time with Echo Falls Rose Wine and some of the girls.
All is not lost.
How have you spent your Black Friday? Got any items you want to brag about? (I won’t cry in misery, I promise)
