Something new

My resolve not to buy anything crumbled when faced with this lovely sparkly knit off the £3 rail in the charity shop. Like I can resist any sparkly knit. I didn’t bother. Now this I ummed about for a long while. I don’t need a white shirt considering that’s all I’ll be wearing for work […]

How to jazz up uniform

So now I’m working again, I’m back to a uniform (boo hiss). Standard white shirt, one of my most hated items of all time but at least I get to wear jeans. Not pictured here are the ugly brown shoes I wear (nobody wants to see that). Nowhere does it say I can’t decorate it a […]
