I'm Back On The Subject Of Bras Again

No I don't have a fetish about bras, it's just a coincidence that on Sunday my daughter and I hit the shops and the first shop we came to happened to be a bra shop! Lonnie decided she wanted to be measured and we came out of the shop over an hour later with a very expensive piece of elastic and two on back order. I bought nothing! Then ........... we walked past yet another bra shop and Lonnie decided she wanted to have a look see and we came out of that shop half an hour later with Three more bras! Hang on, I said we, No I meant Lonnie.

I'm still looking for an outfit for a family wedding which is in the first week of December. The biggest problem seems to be my size, as most of the shops in my local shopping centre are great if you are a size 8 to 14, but me being a 16, going on 17 (and the rest) could find NOTHING. Well I say nothing, I came home with a jacket from Marks & Spencer's Per Una's range, which makes me look like Sponge Bob Square Pants, only in beautiful shot silk! Fell about laughing when I tried it on with my 'dress' later that evening. Look like that's going to go back pretty soon. All I really need is a cream handbag and matching shoes. Don't know where am I going to get cream shoes from, everything is black or grey here in the UK.

That leads me onto my next subject quiet nicely. Why oh why, when it's gloomy with horrible weather and there is little or no sunshine, do we wear such dull clothes in the winter? Why am I considered and eccentric for daring to wear pink or turquoise? I think if we all dressed in a more colourful fashion in the winter we wouldn't feel so miserable. I would be interested to see if other countries adopted this odd idea of wearing horrible drab colours the minute the sun goes away!

Oh well mes amis, I hope you are all happy and well, I’m off to
Cen’s Loft to pick up a fab scrapbook freebie.
