My lovely hubby took me out for dinner on Saturday night and as I had my suede boots out from photographing them for my last blog I thought I’d give them a trip out (I had checked the weather report – no rain was predicted, so it was safe!).
I decided to wear my bargain LK Bennett dress which I picked up for a total steal at the outlet store in Gunwharf Quays, Portsmouth. I wore a black vest from Primark underneath it along with my M&S suck it all in tights.
We had a really great evening, eating, drinking and chatting. I hadn’t told him that I’ve been doing this blog. I’m not sure really why, I think it’s because I was worried he might tease me I guess. Anyway, I had to ask him to take this picture of me, which caused much head scratching but the cab turned up before he could ask more. Unusually, he remembered and brought it up in the conversation later on in the evening and took advantage of my wine-fuzzled head, so I ‘fessed up. Of course, my fears were totally unfounded and he was totally supportive and maybe just a touch impressed, which was pretty cool.
During the day I took advantage of the lovely, sunny, spring weather and walked to the next local town (about a 40 minute walk), to meet a good friend of mine who is having a bit of a bad time of it lately. I got there a bit early and popped into one of the charity shops and found an amazing, brand new weekend bag by Jasper Conran for Tripp. Well, I think it might be a laptop bag but it’s really quite big and it zips right open and it’s plenty big enough to fit clothes for one night away. Not bad for £7.50! Me and hubby will be away for one night on Saturday (a night in a country manor house which was a wedding gift from my best friend since school), so it will get its first use!
