Good morning!

I was a bad girl yesterday and spent some money.  OK, so not a lot and Sainsbury's did have 25% off all Tu clothings.  The problem is that a lot of my old favourite clothes are now way too big and some have already been handed on.  I was thinking ahead a bit so looked for summer stuff.  Sadly, there wasn't much, or maybe I mean luckily!

I ended up with new slippers (which I needed), a black T shirt with white flowers on that's just one size too small so I can use it as a measure of how I'm doing and, the biggie for me, a pair of jeans that aren't just one size too small, nor even two sizes but three whole sizes too small. Blimey!
They will be my motivation thing over the next months because one of my dreams is to look OK in jeans.

More mundanely, I bought some tights BUT in the next size down and THEY FIT!  No longer need I look like Norah Batty! Woo hoo!

I nearly bought a skirt too but I have fabric and patterns at home so no, not skirts!

Unfortunately, after yesterday's plans for a busy and productive day, as I went round the shop the gallbladder decided to play up and instead of tending my garden (it was raining too) and my upstairs, I spent most of the rest of the day feeling a bit sorry for myself.  Tuition was cancelled as was Beth and Al coming over.  BY the time it had gone, I was very weary and had a good sleep as well as sleeping well all night.
I feel better today, just a bit tired.  All the chores can wait, it's not the end of the world if they don't get done until tomorrow.  Or even next week, in fact.

Grumble, grumble!

I shall be careful today but it's OK again really.  It's quite a full day but not too energetic.  I am in school this morning to watch the other FS assembly, then back in school pm to hear reading in Y1, then back in school AGAIN in the early evening to watch the T3/4 Easter show.  There's tuition too but that's all planned and ready.  In between times I must do a bit of housework, but I will be careful.

Well, seeing as I overslept this morning, I'd better get going with stuff.  Bath first and then some clearing up/out.  Have a great day!


  1. Sadly it just goes to show its what you eat puts on the weight but congratulations on the smaller you

  3. Have you got a date yet for your op?? Well done on smaller clothes but I know what you mean about old favourites getting too big. I've an ever increasing pile of things I'm going to alter in the summer! Sadly most need taking in around the chest area!!

  4. No, I haven't yet. It's just not a good time, is it? I'm sure it will come through as soon as possible.
    I tried to take in a skirt but I made such a pig's ear of it!!! You'd have laughed to see it! I didn't even try with the other one, I put it in the Sally Army recycling bin. Someone will get use from it.
    Good luck with the alterations. It can be hard to get it just right, I think, but you are very skilled.

  5. Wow good for you! Sounds like you needed some new clothes. Hope you're feeling better today.

  6. I was a lot better, thanks. The dull ache is almost always there but very slight so forgettable. :-)
