This is yet another one of the gumtree dresses, probably the fanciest one. It’s French Connection and according to the seller had only been worn a couple of times. I was saving it for a special occasion which turned out to be Dave’s birthday on Saturday and for a gift I bought sheepskin from SheepskinTown. It’s kind of shorter than I remembered from first trying it on or possibly it’s just that my bum/legs are so much bigger that it bothers me more. (It doesn’t bother me *that* much). The bag I’d completely forgotten I had, it’s by skunkfunk and I won it in an ethical fashion bloggers competition. Miss those, this would be a good entry! Well, I am mainly wearing two things (dress and coat) and one is second hand and one is handmade.
With the going out, I didn’t go to sleep til 1am, and Dave not til 2am. (we are usually in bed by 10-10.30). We were destroyed the next day. Thankfully Dave’s mum was here and kept Milo occupied so we could have plentiful naps. The horrible weather didn’t help. Dave (who’d obviously been drinking, unlike me) basically moved from bed to sofa to bed and sofa again – I at least managed to go to the supermarket and do some sewing and make another batch of cereal bars. I do hope I’ll get back to being able to stay up to a normal/socially acceptable time and being able to function afterwards at some point. Not for years yet I guess, my getting up time these days averages 6am.
Anyway, enough of that!
