Welcome 2019!

Happy New Year to you all and thank you for reading and commenting on my blog in 2018 . I appreciate your comments so much and get such a lot of pleasure from hearing from you. Looking forward to hearing from you in 2019. Meanwhile, going back to 2018... This is the 2.00 jacket I bought from the Willen Hospice shop in Newport Pagnell. It's  so warm that I can wear it without the need for a coat. All jewellery and scarf charity shopped. A week or so before Christmas I dropped the Dutch pot lid (made of cast iron) on my phone and the screen was smashed. The display was affected as a big black blob obliterated most of it.  I had to send it off to be repaired or replaced and in the interim OH used his phone to take these photos. They're a little fuzzy and for that I apologise. Spots, stripes and floral  -  all co-ordinating in black and white. I love pattern mixing. Everything charity shopped but can't remember where. Boots from Oxfam. For warm

Outfit mistake and other things

Wearing 50p earrings from Cancer Research shop in Rushden. All jewellery charity shopped. I'm determined once again to cut down on my clothes charity shopping. I've said this on several occasions since I started blogging three years ago. I've tried adding up what I spend on a weekly and monthly basis - scary. I've tried limiting myself to once a month trips and most recently trying to only shop from the sale rails. I've been good at clearing stuff out and have a friend who is collecting clothing to send to the Gambia, so that's an incentive but I have to curb my addiction! Christmas is an expensive time of year and I am hoping to go to Devon for a weekend in January so need to stop spending money unnecessarily...I don't need anymore clothes! I'm experimenting with tunics over skirts at the moment and will, at some point, try tunics with dresses. As I'm bulky round the middle I find it tricky to find the right sort of top to wear with skirts
