Hello from sunny Melbourne, yes it has been a lovely sunny day here today, although the wind was a bit fresh, it was so nice to go out without a coat on..bliss.
Today I went to a shop called Spotlight, it is a shop full of material and home wares etc. I was after the yarn…..the 40% off yarn, I bought some cotton/acrylic mix (yes Beetle Helen) to crochet a bath mat for my bathroom to brighten it up. It was so cheap……..and I was so happy.
Last week I bought a couple of cardies and a couple of tops and a pair of thick legging type pants and another pair that are jeans (black) but look like fine leather with a legging type stripe down the sides, ALL on sale, I love sales.
Cardi # 1, what a stunning color, I haven’t really worn color for years, just black, brown or grey…..yes I know, dull.
Cardi #2, it makes my eyes bluer, oh and one of the tops on sale.
Today, before I started my dance job, I met my daughter at the clothes shop where she works for some retail therapy, everything was going out for 50% off, so came home with a little jacket, pants and a top, then bought some slim leg jeans and a pair of boots, all cheap, cheap, cheap. I haven’t bought much in the clothes department for a couple of years, so it was nice to add a couple of new things to stretch out the wardrobe, oh and did I mention, they were all CHEAP!!
Have had such a lovely time reading all your yummy blogs and my memory is being triggered into remembering all sorts of funny things that have happened in my life, it has made me feel so happy and have had quite a few big laughs, you girls are so funny, you girls that have been friends since school, yes you know who you are!
Am loving all the beautiful flowers and scenery, the sharing of family life, because we really are just one big family….really. I pray that one day we all ‘get’ that and start to look out for each other.
Am off to continue with the edge slowly but surely it is getting there, but you know what, my fingers are hankering to knit………
