As you know I rarely go clothes shopping but yesterday I was in town for a haircut and then had an appointment with eldest DS at the Council on Disability to sort out his benefits (still no money from 3rd September!!) I had a few hours to kill between appointments so went shopping for some work clothes.
I picked up 2 Fatface tunics (they look better on me than on the hangers!!), black jeggings and a pair of skinny jeans from M&S and 2 pairs of gym leggings in TK Maxx. I don't need any more clothes for a while now.
Edited to add: The tunics are actually the Simone dress and come in loads of different colours. It's a really flattering shape. They're on the website www.fatface.com I got a 15% off code for myself and any friends cos I've just ordered another one! It's in the comments.
I got about 4 inches chopped off the length and generally tidied up. I've also decided to go back to being blonde and made a further appointment to get my colour sorted out in a few weeks. I'm not ready yet to embrace my grey mainly because I've still got very dark hair underneath and it just looks drab.
I had a voucher for M&S so picked this fancy rice mix (thanks for the suggestion Joy!) and a few other bits n bobs.
I was actually looking for Caramel Snack a Jacks and found these in Tesco. At £1 they're 60p cheaper AND guaranteed GF. Same 41 calories per cake and taste the same.
The dining room/hall is making slow but steady progress. I'm encouraged by the changes already. Dark wood really is a bugger to cover!! I was back at B&Q to get all my light switches and sockets and spent another £100. Gulp!
Luckily I have a clear budget for my clothes and a 'sort of' budget for the dining room. But it did turn out to be a spendy day in the end.
