Last Wednesday, I took a random day off work.  I have a bunch of holidays to use up and I do enjoy pottering around on a week day when everyone else is at work.  And potter I did.  I wrote some blog posts, took some pictures, did some knitting, watched some movies and bought (and ate) some yummy cake.  I also went a wander to the Polish shop to buy Cheetos (pizza flavour crisps!) and was rumbled when the girl behind the counter said something to me and I eloquently replied 'eh...', to which she said 'hello!' and I apologised for being the ignorant Scot buying their delicious food.

Anyway, it was a lovely day and I totally didn't need the tights I was originally wearing, but I'm forever pessimistic about the temperature and stuck them on anyway.  Then wrenched them off as soon as I got in the door.  This season confuses me and my legs.  My little black dress is an 80s number from the charity shop a couple of months ago - I keep forgetting I have it but I always feel a bit disco-tastic when I put it on, never a bad thing!  It may not be as beautiful as some of my purchases but I can't be the floral queen all the time I guess...  The bag was my grans and I totally love it, although it's a bit small for everyday use, which is probably not a bad thing going by the state of my current handbag.  I think the story behind it is that my grandpa brought it back from somewhere he was stationed during his time in the Navy (maybe Singapore?) and my gran made me promise not to get rid of it.  Not much chance of that happening!

Who else has a priceless family heirloom waiting to be used?
