With new resolve I opened my wardrobe this morning and picked out a jumper I had never worn before.
It was a very cosy choice for the colder day we had been forecast.
The big floppy collar was just crying out for a brooch.
Mrs Fox was a gift in my Christmas stocking.
Father Christmas knows me so well.
It did actually stop raining for a couple of hours this afternoon which was long enough for a quick walk down to the local shops.
G had to collect a prescription and we had three bags full of donations destined for a charity shop.
It seems this is the time of year lots of others are having a sort out too as one shop had a notice on their door saying they couldn't take anymore donations due to lack of storage space.
At the shop we did drop them off in the lady volunteer was practically pinned into the corner, so surrounded was she by black sacks full of donations.
With trying to wear more of what I do have I wasn't really looking to buy anything new.....
But one of the shops was having a half price sale and I fell for the pattern on this long length top, it all looked very romantic and for £1.24 it was too good to pass by.
I will make sure I wear it soon though.
