I shall need to spend a little money on clothes this year. All 5 of my tee shirts are years old, tired and baggy. They will be utilized into rag rugs or something similar when I replace them.
My one and only pair
of jeans are covered in fence paint and as I use them for our weekly
walks, am beginning to feel a little embarrassed when we go into a
cafe to eat. Yesterday saw us briefly in Matalan – briefly as their
music was driving us mad
Stopped at the
Falmer's section (whose clothes I love but rarely buy) although I
will sometimes treat myself to a cardigan or shirt from them. I
always buy one size up as their measurements are a little tight.
Their jeans were £28
a pair and I pondered on whether to buy them. Then I found some of
their own brand. Tried a pair on and they fitted well although they
were straight legged. I had long socks on at the time and they were
too tight down the calves.
Trundled back and
managed to find boot leg ones which are supposed to be 29” long but
seem a little short. No problem though as if they shrink too much I
will add a decorative band onto the bottom of the legs and also
somewhere else. They will then look as though they were always that
They fitted better
and were £10 each so I bought 2 pairs. Now my old pair of jeans can
be used for dirty jobs.
Went to check on my
wormery the other day and a few of the worms have begun to find each
section of the food I have put in there. Looks like I'll soon be able
to feed them properly. Might hang off as long as possible though as
they are in the conservatory at the moment and I don't fancy having
fruit flies in there.
