And look! I have found a hat to fit on my enormous pumpkin-sized head!
My second new winter coat - new meaning new to me, of course.
Olive green Philosophy Blues Original wool coat (£8,) Kangol hat (£3) green tights (£1 - all charity shopped), tan boots (£4, Ebay), crochet flower brooch (gift)
I'm so chuffed with my hat, I'm wearing it indoors. Just because I can.
This 1970s frock is one of my favourites. It's one of those easy items of clothing which I always feel comfortable in, so it's a bit of a old faithful "when in doubt" kinda dress.
On Wednesday, Other Half was on strike, along with Youngest LB's class teacher (the other kids' teachers were working - what's wrong with them?) so he took her into town to join in the march.
They were in that crowd somewhere.
Yes, I know I look like Miss Marple. Is that a bad thing?
And yes, I also know that bag is supposed to be for knitting. I can solve crime in quaint English villages, but I can't knit.
At least I was easy to spot in the crowd. I think I was the only green-Caped Crusader there.
Another 1970s beauty. I think it cost £3.99, charity shopped, of course.
I am off with the LBs to the annual Scouts Christmas Cracker craft event, which is far better than it sounds. It's a local ritual; the kids do all manner of really great well-organised craft activities before seeing Santa for a photo, while the parents sit and drink coffee and eat cake and chat.
OH is out on a work Christmas do tonight, so will no doubt be the worse for wear in the morning. Therefore getting the kids out of the house for a couple of hours is A Good Thing, plus I earn points to pop into town in the afternoon for a bit of Christmas shopping (got to be done) and maybe a little peruse in the Vintage Fair in the Town Hall...
Whatever you are doing this weekend, I tip my hat to you, lovely ladies! xxxxxxx
