Some bargains and other good things

Went a wee trip to my fave charity shops the other day. (Best thing about my new place? Its a 5 min walk from my fave shops AND car boot AND supermarket. Not too shabby!) Anyway as usual I came out armed with bargains - this coat and skirt being 2 of them. Please ignore my awful hair, was just out shower and faffing as usual.
Cashmere coat - £8
Top - Topshop Tall, ancient
Skirt - £2 (and handmade, therefore unique!)
Belt - H&M, also ancient
And my new Henry Holland shoes - took a notion for actual shoes that would keep my feet semi-dry in the inevitable wet and windy Scottish winter. Hopefully these will do the trick!

And my latest thing - reading childrens books. Despite being a huge reader as a kid, I never read any of the classics. So have purchased Wizard of Oz, Gullivers travel, Anne of Green Gables, What Katy Did etc. Sad but true.

My camera then decided to die. However today has been pretty ok so far.
  • Car passed its MOT, yay! Was semi thinking it wouldn't, so its all good now. The price wasn't.
  • 2 of my best friends are visiting and we're meeting another one for dinner.
  • Following on, I don't have to cook diner in my malfunctioning oven tonight :D
  • Tesco Value Mince Pies are back in stock!
Hope everyone else has exciting plans for the weekend!
