I did not find any new charity shop bargains to tell you about this week but have found a picture of a navy blue jacket that I bought towards the end of last summer for £8.00. It is ideal for more formal occasions and in the picture I am wearing it with a black knee length pencil skirt and white blouse on a works seminar held in a hotel. A colleague took the picture but I didn't use it at the time as the lighting partly obscures the colour of the jacket.
This is the type of outfit I tend to wear to the office or courses and seminars as we have a fairly strict formal dress code.
This winter seems to have been very long and dreary. We have not had any snow in the South West of England but it has been cold, cloudy and damp for most of the time. However, my miniature daffodils have suddenly burst into bloom giving a welcome splash of colour and hope than spring is around the corner. The weather forecasters are predicting the coldest weather for five years next week with winds coming in from Siberia - has winter got a final bite?
