There’re only another three weeks to go before the next awfully big adventure. And of course there’s all the fun of the preparation. You probably think that I spend all my waking hours searching out new and ever more expensive (read ‘less affordable’) things to spend money on. But tonight, you’ll be surprized to hear, I trawled every clothes shop in Forestside without spending a single brass farthing!!! And yet two pairs of (white, dressy) trousers were purchased.
And there you are – it turns out that all the experience I have of being the ultimate shopper for myself can be put to perfectly good use in my new-found role of personal shopper for my mother. And in offering up my talents, I can safeguard her holiday wardrobe against total style fiasco. Hopefully. (Although other people may, of course, say that my choice will only hasten towards that end!)
Still. She’s happy and I have done my good deed for the day. So – holiday in sight and the additional feelgood factor of having of having offered time where it was unexpected. Good things can, indeed be free!
