I said earlier that I was not out working today, but staying at home and catching up with some admin, well of course as always it is never quite that simple. A quick check of the diary reminded me that I had a job in the morning that needed some compost, and in the afternoon some bedding, to pot up, so I had to get out and go to the nursery. Now given the choice the last thing I wanted to do was get changed for this, so I didn't. It was quite noticeable how much more helpful the young man at the drive through bit was, loading the compost into the van for me without a second thought. I got a few looks at the wholesale bedding nursery but I would put that down to it being an event for them to see anyone not wearing jeans, certainly they were all very pleasant and helpful.
I should have gone home after the nursery it would have
saved me, but I thought since I was out that way I would pop into Banstead and
have a trawl of the charity shops, I fancy a low heeled pair of boots, and a
white belt. Of course I didn't manage
to find either of these, but I did buy myself a pink linen dress, and a nice
colorful print cotton dress. I
certainly don’t need any more dresses, and I don’t know when I will get a
chance to wear either of these, but I rather liked the way they looked on, and
so succumbed to temptation. Maybe I
should take a leaf out of Meg’s book, she has a rule that every time she buys
something, something else has to go to make room, I’m just not at all sure I
have that level of self discipline, no I
know I don’t have that level of self discipline.
It was only as I was returning home and cleaning off my make up and getting changed that I realised that although I had brought a pair of jeans and a polo shirt with me I had totally forgotten to bring any boy shoes. I had left home already dressed as I had the place to myself, but I knew that both my wife and daughter would be home. Trying not to panic, I put on the lowest heels I had with me to walk to the door, slipped them off and into my bag as I opened the door, called out a hallo and dashed upstairs ostensibly to the loo, but in reality to get a pair of slippers.
All very silly but a reminder to be a bit more carefull in future.
