Wearing purple, not waiting until I am old
I've had a few people admire the skirt and ask if I made it. No I didn't, though I did adjust the waist after I was given it last year. I woul happily like to make one like it. It is a wide elastic waistband and then the knit fabric drapes softly off the waistband rather than gathering in a way hardly anyone likes. The floral panels are identical round the skirt, three at the front and three at the back, and allow for a floral pattern on a flared skirt which does not overwhelm.
Same boots as all the other pictures. If I had the money for lots of pairs of boots then either I would by now own some red ones or I would have used the money to deal with the state of the hall walls.
Thursday 3 May
Breakfast: porridge for the others and spinach and scrambled egg for me.
Lunch: last pieces of quiche for FH, usual lunch box food for Fionn and Brighid and I fell off the wagon and bought a salmon bagel in town.
Tea: pasta with mushroom sauce (mushroom, garlic, kale, thyme, sour cream) and beetroot salad with freshly cooked turbot and lime and coriander. It was all quite nice, though as a combination I doubt it would win restaurant awards.
