I went shopping this morning…. Clothes shopping…. That’s pretty unusual for me these days.
I needed some new jeans (as you may be aware due to dog chewing damage!)
I thought I’d head up to our local Braehead Shopping Centre for 9am before anyone else could get there!
I love May, it’s my favourite month of the year and I remember when I was wee that more often than not, our Scottish summer was at its best in May.
That said it rained all day yesterday and it’s been cloudy all day today.
I wondered around for a good couple of hours. I wouldn’t say I enjoyed it. I kind of disappointingly didn’t… but I got a couple of pairs of cheap jeans which will do me for work and a really pretty linen vest too.
And drumroll…… I also bought a summer dress…… and summer sandals. I mean come on…. I haven’t been seen in a dress for a long time. I can’t actually remember how long…. Oh I can…… some event at my in-laws house and I was up to a size 18 and I had to wear a dress and I felt dreadful. There’s a photo that still haunts me. Thankfully I can’t find it. I feel like I’m now officially back into a size 14 which is a long time coming but I’m very grateful!!
Here I am in my new dress…… 🤦🏻♀️🤷🏻♀️🤣🤣🤣🤔 ok maybe not me.
I’m not a fan of animal print but it’s got a really lovely cross over detail on the front and big pockets either side so it’s a casual dress but as dressy as I’m gonna get these days. Here are the sandals.
I’m chuffed with my purchases. 😍
I so need a clear out again but will get round to that soon.
I popped into Starbucks on the way home for a Coconut Cappuccino which was really lovely. But the time I got home the Glasgow Old Firm game was on. Poor Calaidh doesn’t like the football.
“I know you’re trying to crochet, mumma, but I need cuddles as the football’s too scary and dad gets very loud….” 😬😆🤣
“Now I need a big yawn”…. 🥱
So I sat and crocheted for a bit then had a bite of lunch before I went out to clean Abbie the camper van.
We’ve booked this weekend away and I thought I’d better get her all tidied and ready to go. I got the hoover out too but I’m all honesty it wasn’t too bad. Only need bedding and clothes now… oh and food!
I’m going to stay on the campsite on Thursday night by myself and then Craig will bring the dogs on Friday after work.
The forecast was great when we booked but not so much now. 🙄 hey ho…
So I’m back in Grans chair… writing the blog with my crochet on my knee… I should take it outside for a photo….
It’s coming on!
I love this next one. I always see a message in the mess now. I love that. I try to think why things happen and how others are feeling before making rash judgements. That’s a very important tool to have.
So that was the weekend, back to work tomorrow but I’m relishing the challenge. It’s going to be a busy week and tomorrow’s a busy day. The blog will revert to gym, work, eat, blog, sleep…. Until Thursday when I get away camping for the first time this year… and suss out the site for Craig and the dogs arriving.
So happy bank holiday Monday to those of you who are off.
Stay safe everyone ♥️♥️♥️
