I have missed so much!! And so have you

Oh wow where do I even begin??! I haven't been on here in months.
I felt like I just needed to take some time out and try and find me for a while.I have have lots of ups and downs mostly downs and didn't want my blog to be solely based on tears,tantrums and my black clouds.
Since the the time I have not been on here I am now officially mrs power,we wed on 11th of august and it was more perfect than we could of imagine.The whole day went without a hitch.

It was one of the most amazing days of my life and I couldnt be happier.
Ooohh I have a huge confession to make........

I will add a pic of our little butter bean tomorrow,still early days yet im 8 weeks but the baby is doing just fine.
Wow I have a lot of catching up to do x x x

This post should explain where I have been

Hello my lovelys,Before I begin I am not going to hold back on this post so if you are a very reserved person then look away now :-p
I seem to have gone into hiding since I got my 50 shades of grey book by E L JAMES
I am like a woman obsessed,unravelling myself into the first of the trilogy.
I had heard a few mentions of the book but when my niece said she was getting it I decided to get one too so we could embark on a mini book club.By the way seen as my siblings are quite a bit older than me my niece is 21 just in case you were some what confused.
I threw myself into it and I was HOOKED a couple of chapters in.Mr scrimp said he has never had so much peace,something which he very rarely receives off me.
From the things I had heard of this book I thought I'd be shocked by some of the revelations but to be quite frank I found myself drifting into fantasy land and found it really seductive.Not that me and mr scrimp has ever wanted to cuff each other to the ceiling and spank each other with a paddle or anything :-o
But you get entwined in her deep feelings for this man that clearly has some demons,Hey whatever floats your boat but I have to say I would without a doubt take a spanking off mr scrimp for a new laptop,blackberry and a car.
The main characters are christian grey & ana steele or anastasia as mr grey calls her seductively 
Ana is a reserved timid girl until she meets mr grey who is a powerful business man who has a jekyl & hyde personality keeps ana on her toes and brings her out of her shell.She is besotted and eventually he is smitten too,because he has never met a girl like her.
I think I became more hooked by this book as their relationship really reminds me of me and mr scrimp,again I am not a lover of nipple clamps but I completely relate to ana falling in love with a man she does not know much about,there is just something about him.Ana reveals her love for mr grey thus ending their relationship and this scenario is exactly how mine and mr scrimps relationship panned out in the early days.Yes shock horror...
But after time apart mr scrimp realised he was in fact in love with me,reuniting our relationship allowing me to finally really know him and this is how ana and christian are...So far
I am now on the second book which I actually nabbed today,The second book 'darker' was like rocking horse shit to get hold of.I think this is because the first book 'of grey' was so fantabulously amazeballs that desperate housewives through out the country went in search for the book that ended on us needing more.I was lost for a couple of days,curling up with my book and a cup of costa...Bliss
I searched for darker for 2 days and I was getting more fed up,I headed into waterstones and found the last copy,I actually thrust the book into the air and did a little dance..No shittin ladies,this actually happened.I have no regrets or shame,It was called for.
Running to the till I overhead two eager ladies asking for the book to which the assistant replied I am sorry we are sold out and will have to order you a copy.The look on her face was like someone had pissed on her kids at christmas.I have to admit I felt smug inside...
Well I will end my post here as I am already getting with  drawl symptoms
Have you read the amazing 50 shades trilogy by the genious of a author E L james found here
If not then is this modern day romance/kinkyporn something you would indulge in? Come ladies dont be a prude..
Much love
Mrs scrimp x x

Outfit post.First of many!!

Hey ladies,I cant believe I have never actually done a outfit post?!!
What was I thinking? Especially with the amount of clothes I have.I must confess I am somewhat of a hoarder,I know what your thinking....Really mrs scrimp a hoarder? The lady who posts about her huge hauls? Well let me tell you my clothes get good use and if I am not shopping in charity shops I raid my sisters wardrobe and occasionally  my mums which is even better because that means its FREEEEEE!  We all love freebies so basically my excuse for being a complete fashion wh*re is that it does not cost the earth
Well here is my first outfit post and I hope you like because I love!! I have had my eye on this dress for a while and while the sale closet was bare on collectif with the dresses being so fabulous and fairly priced they shot off the rails no doubt!
But all is not lost,I found a seller on ebay who stocks collectif clothing found here The dress I had my  eye on started at £19.99 but buy it now price was £40,I really wanted it but I just couldn't be so frivolous with my cash without trying to bid.
So as per usual I sat there,eager coffee in hand,heart racing,talking fast but not paying attention to whatever anyone is saying to me during this 5 minute window of countdown time!
I always wait till the last 20 seconds,occasionally this has failed me when I have been convinced said item its mine but some other ebay loon much like myself swoops in! Fair play so now I have to hold out till that right moment
Yes thats right bloggers my name is brooke and I am addicted to ebay! Another time and another post for that but that being said I know when to stop
Enough of my ramblings,you might already of guessed I won!! first bid and I was over the moon when I arrived.
Mr scrimp was too,queue his jaw dropping and the odd cheeky bum slap,I have had lots of eyes on me too And I was pretty sure my knickers were not tucked in my dress.
Or maybe they wondered why someone was dollied up in asda?? All dressed up and nowhere to go is most certainly the case here.
Well here she is,what do you think? Also show casing my new fringe,btw I am aware I am almost blending in with the wall,if I had pink hair it would be like a game of where's wolly!!
 Its the end of the day just in case you was wondered if we actually owned a iron,hence the crinkles :-/

New wedges via scope charity shop for £3.99 :) Ignore my vile toes!

Hope your all enjoying the start to your weekend,Im off to eat my curry with the other half then upload lots of items on ebay to take advantage of the free insertion fees this weekend ;-)

Recent thrifty finds from the shops

Recently I headed out with my mum to superdrug,I needed a hairdye.Priced at £7 for one or £10 for three it was a no brainer so I got two and my mum got one and we split the difference.
But on our way out my mum squeeled with delight at tights in the bargain basket for £10p a pair!! So I got 5 pairs and my mum got 4.
Mr scrimp came home last week feeling very pleased with himself,He headed to b&m bargains and when he got to the till the assistant said would you like this for 20p as its the last one?!
I have noticed his smile gets him everywhere but am I willing to pimp out my hubbys smile for discount stuff......
Nice big jug for hot summer days complete with glasses reduced from £3.99 to 20p! score!!!
I strolled past shoe market and thought id pop in,not sure why because some of the shoes can be a bit over priced for what they are but I spotted these gorgeous polkadot pumps reduced from £7.99 to £2.99
And even though I have my shoes stored in a 80litre tub and about 20 pairs still dont fit in I couldnt resist,I am a shoe addict.
Lush or what? Have you found any recent bargains?

im blue dabba dee dabba diiii

This song randomly popped into my head after trying to describe the way I am feeling lately.Booo dont you just hate it when you have that dark cloud looming over you.
Its dragging me down more because I have no motivation what so ever,which also explains the lack of posts!
Lack of gym effort,doing more things with the kids just everything.This is not like me and I dont like it because I would like my happy soul back,if anyone finds it can you please send it in a vintage envelope addressed to moi?!

 On the plus side mr scrimp made me a three course meal today,this is a big shocker because he never cooks for me!! He burns pans all the time and so the cooking just gets left to me but it was nice to be wined and dined complete with candles.

We had a red onion and cheese ciabiatta for starters,sausage and bean casserole for main and a giant sunday for desert sprinkled with my favourite sweeties (mini jelly babies) The big ones are minging they have to be the mini green and purple ones yum yum.I am a lucky lady
Hopefully I will be back to my normal self soon and if anyone can speed up this process it would be very much appreciated.Hope you have all had a great weekend xxx
