My sneaky mum...

Sunday, May 06, 2012

slipped some money into my coat pocket before I left her house yesterday - for fuel, bless her!

I didn't know she had done this. I did think, as I put that coat into the wardrobe, "I doubt if I'll wear that coat again as it's now too loose". It's a lovely coat that was a bargain on eBay, but as it's a UK size 20 I won't be sad that it's out of service now that I'm a UK size 16 :-) :-)

Mum told me what she had done after I reported that I had ordered a dress on-line for her which will be delivered tomorrow. The dress is for her grand-daughter's wedding next Saturday. Mum has always been a smart dresser, but is currently hampered by having her left wrist heavily bandaged after a fairly minor operation. The size 10 dress that we bought last Thursday was a little too tight, so I took that back on Friday and got a 12. The 12 fits well, but unfortunately there was a flaw in the zipper. As I was coming home on Saturday, I didn't have time to return the faulty dress. A friend has offered to take it back for her. Another friend is providing a suitable fascinator.

I have to find something to wear tomorrow, although I do have a dress (that fits again) that could fit the bill if I don't find anything lovely. Isn't it great to find lots of smaller sized clothes fit again, so get a new lease of life!

Anyone who stresses about planning a wedding might take a leaf out of my niece and sister's books. The date was set and all arrangements made in less than a month. Why? Because my niece's fiance was suddenly offered a job in Australia, which means they have to relocate by June.

    I love it when clothes are too big. Sometimes it's still hard to get rid of them though. I've now grown into slacks that were too small before SP and now they have a saggy behind. Since I have a lot to lose, I really hate to invest in new clothes. I know I'll have to, but that doesn't make me like it!
