Have been having a real ball recently with vintage purchases on Etsy and EBay. Many a happy hour have I spent scrolling my way down endless search items. Saw a lovely tin bath…but nowhere to put it (sigh….).
….and now they’re all beginning to arrive, courtesy of Hermes or Royal Mail 2nd Class! Ding…ding….ooops….there goes the doorbell again lol ….
I have a little 4 wheel drive that I am very fond of. Suzi is 18 yo and is very bouncy. In fact when I wear my Fitbit it categorises the drive as exercise and labels it as a “bike ride”. Apparently I’ve had 2 bike rides today! Easy way of meeting my exercise goal lol. 😂😂
Whilst putting the washing away I got to pondering that “my smalls” were not as small as they once were. In fact my knicker coverage appears to have increased as I’ve got older.
Once upon a time my cupboard was filled with tiny lace thongs and frilly pants. Alas that is no longer the case. In fact I need more drawer space to accommodate my increasing size of “drawers”.
My preference these days is for the fuller cut brief. The pants that hold everything in and gives support in the right places. Ones that keep your bum warm, your bits covered and tummy supported. Let’s face it you can hardly tuck a vest into a thong can you?
So my days of flicking lovingly through the Agent Provocateur catalogue are long gone. Now I like to settle down with Damart….and a glass of sherry…………
Sister popped round for quick coffee bringing round her daughter and daughter’s friend. The girls have tiedied up my 7 yo’s bedroom. Yay…..wonder if they can come back tomorrow to do 10 yo’s too tee hee heee
Popped down the road this morning to the Post Office. Had usual trawl of the charity shops as that is all that we have apart from Hairdressers and Barbers! Tried on a really lovely dress. Fitted well, really flattering, lovely colour….only one drawback….it was a trifle see-through. Reluctantly put it back on the rack….I don’t thing the people of Buckinghamshire are quite ready to see the colour of my knickers…not yet anyway lol
Oh to be 20 again….or 30….or even 40….in fact anytime pre-kids lol
It’s no good. I’ve come to the conclusion that however much I try my capacity to drink alcohol is severely hindered as I get older. Sister popped round. Had pleasant evening yesterday sitting by pond drinking couple of glasses of rose. It’s only 8%!! Feeling decidedly sluggish today…..
Inspired by Pinterest I’ve been very artistic and painted pebbles with my 7 yo. Guess which one I did 😂. There’s not much difference in our abilities! I have come to the conclusion that drawing and painting are not part of my creative skills. I’m better off with a hook and a ball of wool….
