There seems to be a lot of murdering going on. Can I hire you?
I'm for hire too now, the trip to Italy wasn't just for a holiday you know and some of the shops out there sell big knives and swords so the last "job" was a breeze.

tk maxx tk maxx tk maxx. they're more interesting than the monsoon ones as well

or debenhams, but you won't get anything there for less than £80(although they're never as expensive as monsoon)
TK Maxx RULES for dresses. I have two from there, at a total cost of £70, which is still less than one dress in debenhams!

i found a gorgeous one in there, bright red...only problem was it was too big, and i couldn't find the size i wanted anywhere else. i ended up buying a dress from a different shop, and forking out way more for it lol. but it was worth it

Be warned - no TK Maxx in Cambridge.

I may well have a good long look at the hallowed market stall of ballgowns this year. No way am I going to Debenhams and Monsoon - everyone goes there, far too boring

romania was fantastic for big knives and things. a friend who i was out there with got this big ornamental scythe from a street stall outside Bran Castle, only cost her about £5. and it looked pretty lethal as well

Do they still have the stall in the amrket that sells all things made of hemp?
i went there with a friend about 4 / 5 years ago and they had these socks with a label on them warning you not to smoke the socks

I have my first (lol) mum!! It's all so exciting!
I have an arch & anth mum and a classics mum! The classics mum is the one I've heard from, she has beautiful but slightly unreadable hand-writing! I feel I should reply with some questions but I think all mine have been answered on here...ach it's never stopped me before, I can always think of more questions! She's going to be so dissappointed in me, she's a mad musician and, well, I'm utterly hopeless at anything musical!

went to tk maxx in exeter - it was crap! there were about 10 dresses and they were all massive or nasty. got a lovely blue one from debenhams (i know :rolleyes: but exeter is limited in its provision of shops which sell ballgowns) for £27! for that price, if i find a nicer one i wont mind spending money on it!

everyone seems to be hearing from parents! i'm still orphaned...

I got my Xmas social dress in Debenhams in July. Come back to school last month and already somebody's got the same one {cries}

On the bright side I wore it to a wedding last weekend and it's too strappy for a ceilidh. So I may get another one.
