Good morning. I'm a bit later today because I whizzed off the the GP earlier and now I am loaded up with my flu jab (better late than never) and the pneumo-whotsit jab too. The latter is a one off.
I couldn't believe how easy it was to get through town - usually the centre of Chelmsford is a nightmare but there were no holdups at all, a combination of a long 'holiday' and schools being out, I guess.
Coming home was equally straightforward.
First of all - Eileen, please would you send me the address of that group that sends bras overseas, please. Thanks for mentioning it.
Secondly - ooops, three pounds on over Christmas, according to the weigh in. No surprise and I wasn't the only one by a long shot. Back on track today (apart from this evening) and it'll all or mostly be gone next Thursday. I'd rather know than not know.
Town was far from busy yesterday. The bus was even better, being almost empty both ways. I went into M&S because I get their bras and found what I wanted although I was slightly tempted by some more fancy, prettier stuff. Maybe when I hit target I will treat myself to a few sets.
Then I wandered over to the PJs as I love M&S PJs; they are so very comfortable and cosy. To my delight, they had some at half price although some were Christmas sets. Not all though and I stocked up.
I also found a jumper reduced in the sale
After that I headed back to the bus, a route that takes me past some big shops on the way. I nearly went into Waterstones but I knew I'd be there for absolutely ages so I managed to resist. I will maybe make a trip specifically for that next week. Why not! :-)
On the way back I went into Primark and got some thinner jumpers for when the weather is milder. And I have discovered yet again the eternal truth of clothes shopping. If you really love the colour and the style, they won't have it in your size. It doesn't matter what size that is, they won't have it, full stop.
And that's my Christmas money spent!
After getting home (only two of us on the bus), I took off labels, etc, investigated the contents of my washing basket and got stuck into some washing. I now have a basket of ironing which is on today's list. Stuff got moved about in my cupboards so now there's room for all the new stuff.
Emily now has two legs the same and she's nearly made up. She's gone well, very pretty (I think) and I just have to get the hat bedecked with leaves and flowers and then sew it on. She will make someone a nice gift at some point, I am sure.
Last of all, I'm off out to a friend's home for supper today. I'm very much looking forward to that.
Well, time flies and I need to get going so I will wave goodbye now. Have a super day and may everything go well for you. xx
