So, week 4 of wearing everything in my wardrobe is done - and it's gone by in a flash!
I can't believe the weather we've been having - windy as hell one moment, bright sunshine the next. Some days have been freezing, others have felt like - dare I say it? - spring. But the rain! Oh, the rain! Whilst it's soggy and muddy under foot here, we're lucky to be in an area unaffected by the floods. My heart goes out to anyone who has been forced to evacuate their home. It must be so hard to leave, not knowing when you'll be going back and what you'll be going back to.
It rather puts my issues with weather interrupted wi-fi in perspective, whilst it's inconvenient, it's nothing compared to seeing your home slowly fill up with muddy water. Let's hope it stops raining soon.

This week I've worn a lot of my charity shop finds, my orange and red stripey jumper was £1.50 and I'm often told how nice it is. The check shirt is Crew Clothing, the photo doesn't really do it justice, and it was an absolute bargain at £3.00. The black jeans have served me well too. I must have had them for over 3 years. I've dyed them back to black a 3 or 4 times to prolong their life, there's nothing else wrong with them, they fit well, keep their shape - a real wardrobe staple.
I've been torturing myself a little today. I've been browsing shoes and boots on the interwebs, which is an utterly stupid idea when you're on a spending ban. However, I am rather short on ankle boots and shoes after my feet inexplicably grew last year, taking me from a size 5 to a size 6, so I'm seeing it as research. These are my favourites so far...
