I’m getting very excited by our trip to Spain and so when I saw some sunshine coloured jumpers in the shop today I decided that’s exactly what I needed to brighten up my outfits. I wear a lot of dark colours in the winter so I thought a splash of lemon and mustard would liven things up for the Spring.
Paul patiently waited while I disappeared into the changing rooms to try stuff on. It is freezing cold here today so I was wearing layers and it took a long time to remove it all, try on the new tops (and a pair of jeans) and then get dressed again. Changing rooms for the mature lady are horrifying places, you see views of your body that you would rather not see. The mirror in this changing room was very honest and showed every lump and bump, but when I modelled the clothes for Paul the big mirror in the main shop was very flattering. I chose to believe the big mirror.
Now that I’m home I’m not sure about the mustard...
Lunchtime conversation with Paul:
"So, why aren't you wearing your nice new outfit you bought this morning?"
"You mean, why am I slouching around in these saggy black tracksuit bottoms and a lurid pink velour jumper?"
"Because I could be sitting here in a gold lurex boilersuit and you wouldn't notice. That's why."
