Now it really grieves me to have to spend money on work clothes and as we are on a spend free moment (maybe even months!) I have had to be a little more creative with my work wear.
As it had begun to get a nip the air, plus the fact I still can't manage to pull up tights, this morning I opted for a trouser suit.
Smart and warm.
So you can imagine how miffed I was to find that my trousers had a big bleach mark on the bottom!
(I have obviously been by a mop at work and brushed past)
The quandary it put me in was the fact that I hadn't ironed an alternative and had 5 minutes to rectify the situation. The result ended up as such;
|Suit jacket - Next (years old)|
Blouse - thrifted
Skirt - eBay
Not quite as warm as I would have liked but thankfully the offices are heated well.
|A sign it has gotten colder is the draft excluder reappearing under the door!|
As for my trousers, well in true thrift style my mother in law is going to make them into very long shorts which I should still be able to wear as a suit and suitable for work also.
Win, win I'd say!
Further adventures of the thrifting kind saw us getting our shopping yesterday from the local aldi.
£56 for around two weeks worth of food for the three of us, not bad I thought, even a few treats for Ash in the basket too.
I baked a huge Sunday roast with a leg of lamb that will also see us for tea this evening and I baked a banana loaf for us to take as a snack to work as well as a home made tomato soup for lunches.
(Using the last of our home grown tomatoes.)
A very busy day yesterday!
