Ahh, the old ones are the best ones! Prior to going on holiday I went clothes shopping with a friend predominantly in Primark – a shop, a little like TK Maxx, where you need to be in the right mindset for shopping and not have your husband in tow. As we’d only managed to get the first week’s accommodation a week before we arrived I hadn’t bought anything – perhaps in the hope that cutting out one biscuit a day would result in being a size 12 before I had to try anything on!
So here is my real holiday wardrobe…
Handmade dress (the one started for last year’s holiday) and 3/4 sleeve cardigan (£6.00).
Five pairs of pink socks in varying stripes (£2.50)
White linen pants – half lined (£15.00), hand knitted cardigan (Peony) from last week which now has flowers attached but no buttons – not too sure I like it, well I like it but I don’t think it’s me. T-shirt Nicole Fahri from TK Maxx (£7.00 should have been £35.00). And erm, what’s that round Bud’s neck?
In case you’re wondering how come we have not one, not two, but three pictures of me in the same post, it rained yesterday so Buddy got a five kilometre walk and then after drying off while eating our butties in the car, we came back and B had that much time on his hands (five minutes as opposed to 30 seconds) I got at least 15 pictures to chose from (as opposed to his usual point and click ‘Yes that looks like you.’ ‘But is it okay?’ ‘You can tell it’s you.’ photography style). Plus we have better mobile broadband connection where we are now than the landline connection at home!
Linen casual pants (£9.00), 3/4 sleeve cardigan (£6.00), same T-shirt.
Same trousers getting dried earlier in the afternoon because, did I mention, it was wet. If we’d not had Bud it was go shopping and then the cinema weather now it’s take Bud during a dry bit and doh, it’s raining again before we’ve finished weather.
Yes I sat in the car in a woodland car park in my knickers (fortunately I had a spare cardy to hand) while I ate my butties – and if you look closely at the previous photo you’ll see I was correct when I exclaimed ‘Oh, look me knickers match me cardy.’
I also got two bras for £6.00, 12 pairs of knickers for £7.80 and after a couple of bargains in the 30sfp sunscreen department Chris ended up insisting on carrying my bag while I carried her one pair of trousers! Another myeloma perk?!
And as to what Bud is wearing above, well here’s the rest of it…
maybe that’s why it was half price at £2.00 – the floppy brim really flopped!
