Well, it certainly helped to get back into the swing of things. After a bit too long in cisville, having time with like-minded folk certainly helped recharge my batteries. I think it’s easy to forget what a difference Chams makes. In fact, as the Ever Lovely Mrs J said to me earlier, it’s more than going out, it’s support too. How right she is.
Oh, I’d also like to say a quick note of thanks to those of you who got in touch via email or who commented with support. Thank you ❤️
After last weekend’s spot of bother, I had ordered two skirts from the Oxfam Online Store as a bit of both a gamble and retail distraction.
Sadly, the pretty skirt from Fat Face was a small 16, so I wasn’t going to get into that. Still, free returns for the win. I also had a spring dress I’d bought at Christmas and conversely, that was too big. It also felt a bit, well, cheap, and that’s something that really puts me off. It’s not like I stand there feeling the material 🙂, but as you fold something, handle it, or see how it falls, certain synthetics just don’t quite work. Still, another package to keep the Post Office busy.
Luckily my trusty black and rose dress went on okay and I’m hoping the Fat Face issue was unlucky sizing. Also, Steph’s (TrendCo) restyle of my wig means I feel it sits better and I don’t feel my earrings a lost or caught up in my hair
The evening went well and discussion was lively in the group. It was really good to see some new folks from further was away and some familiar faces from back in the day too.
While I’m feeling the late night, I am certainly feeling a lot better than I did last week. Good stuff.
