Good week? Mine’s not been bad thanks. This time around – and at the risk of sounding like a cod reference to Jesse’s Diets – this week I have mostly been a single parent. Now, don’t panic I don’t mean that in a I-ticked-Mrs-J-off-and-now-she’s-left-me kinda way. That would be bad. No, moreover that the Ever Lovely Mrs Jones was called away on business. A whole week without her. 🙁 Understandably, the kids and I have missed her, so the weekend can’t come quickly enough as she’s back on Saturday. Somehow the house is still standing and none of us have starved. I guess that’s one advantage to the old trans powers; I may not be able to double park or explain the offside rule, but caring and catering come fairly easily 😀
It was rather odd being house husband once again. Sure, I had some help from Granny Jones at the start of the week, yet during the night, there was just me, Wee Man and Little Miss. The place was very quiet once they’d gone off to sleep. For a while, my sister was on her own and I really don’t know how she did it all. I suppose in the old days (Ed: all of eight years ago) I would have been opening the dressing up stash every night. This time, not really. Sure, I did try a few items on, but that was mainly to see what had been languishing at the bottom of the wardrobe and what fitted / didn’t fit. The shelves and hangers are a little less packed now. My loss, charity’s gain. 🙂 Thing is, you can’t keep everything and really, if I’ve not worn it for a good few months, it’s time to let go and move on.
I met up with a friend for a spot on lunch and a walk around the shops too. Other than a good chat and a tasty lunch, no fashion purchases where made. I hadn’t gone out with anything that I wanted in mind and at the mo, I’ve got enough clothes to be going on with. Maybe the chill winter breeze is keeping the idea of floaty summer fabrics at bay, yet at the same time, I’m not seeing a lot I’d like to part cash for. The shoes – other than a few wedges – where variations on last summer’s cut out styles. On the upside, there was no rushing around and I didn’t buy anymore black shoes. A first for me. What about you, is there an item, shop or style that you keep on buying?
