Thursday

Good morning, everyone.  It really was a wild day yesterday but by the evening the beast had blown elsewhere, the sun came out and it was lovely.  I covered my strawberries overnight, just in case of a touch of frost.  Now it looks like endless sunshine for the next several days and also warming up.  I'm fed up of having to put the heating on!

After the health check I came home and made downstairs presentable for my friends.  We had a lovely afternoon catching up with all sorts of news while the rain lashed against the windows and made us thankful to be inside.

I was bad and bought another top, a hippy sort of thing to wear with jeans or whatever.  I maybe won't dare to wear it out and it's very vintage and perhaps too young but I just like it.  I can always return it if it's not right!


Then the evening was spent watching telly and stitching.  What a frivolous retirement!  :-)

Today I have Aqua and I shall go back into Matalan (which is more or less next door to the gym) to have another look at some T shirts.  If I do get a couple, I am more or less set for the summer apart from a couple of skirts I am making and I'm waiting for a bit before starting them.  Once I get going, they will take less than a day to make.

There's nothing else in the diary so it's an organise myself kind of day.  Things continue to pick up and I've taken no painkillers for several days now - not being brave, I just haven't needed to.
So all is well in my little world.

The top is lovely, I'd wear it without a doubt. As for being 'too young' - pah, who says there's an age limit for clothes?! Wear what you like and feel happy in, that's my motto.

Sounds like your recovery is going just fine, very pleased for you.

Would you? That's nice to know. It was from a pop up on another site - the company, I mean - and it has a lot of retry/vintage looking stuff that I rather like. As with that skirt last week, it's really a trial run, to check the quality, fit, etc.
I think I've been very lucky really that everything is going OK. :-)

I'd wear that top - I'm in my 60s and don't think it'd look too young. As long as you feel comfortable wearing it, that's all that matters.

Glad to hear that your recovery is going well and that you have been able to stop taking the painkillers.

Joy, the previous comment was from me! Don't know why it says anonymous.

Blogger can do some weird things at times.
I agree, age should not have much to do with it but . . . I guess that I'm trying to work out what I like and what likes me after decades of 'if I can get into it, buy it'. Not much choice when you are huge, is there?

I know exactly what you mean. I want to change my 'style' and start wearing trousers again but the combination of being short and very overweight means the reality doesn't match up to the image in my head 😂 It's a work in progress!

It's a tricky one, I think.

That's a good way of looking at it, thanks. When the sun shines, one wants to look bright and colourful. :-)
