One day last week I loaded up my shopping trolley with another batch of items from our home we no longer needed and trundled off to the charity shop.
I very nearly got out without making a purchase but the colours in this Marks and Spencer skirt caught my attention as I cast my eye over the clothes racks as I was leaving.
I liked it even more when I looked at the price tag and saw that it had been reduced to £2.00.
When I was little we always had a new outfit to wear Christmas day and it's still something I like to do.
I particularly like the velvet green ribbon and would love to find a top this shade to go with it.
I've been lucky enough to have a couple of little jaunts out Christmas shopping during my time off and am very nearly finished with my gift buying. I am planning on sharing a couple of my favourite present ideas soon, but now I'm off to have a cuppa and enjoy my first festive bakewell tart.
