    I thought I would start today with some clothes sorting and ebaying

    Firstly I had to get dressed, this is getting to be a ridulously long job now, much simpler in winter when its leggings, thick socks, long sleeved t shirts and baggy jumpers, all done in minutes before hypothermia sets in
    ... I started going through an under the bed box in search of a suitable top, instead found dresses suitable for ebay and masses of tops and skirts etc so long in the tooth and never likely to go back into fashion so Ive filled a charity bag already.

    Then I could not find a bra so I turned out the underwear drawers, these have already been sorted out once already.
    But in all honesty I am never going to be a 34 b or 34 c every again - what possessed me to hang onto too small bras, why torture yourself...
    So the new ones have gone into the charity bag and the rest are in a bag for cloth recycling and the drawer now is empty apart from a couple of sets (possibly also too small but new and might be OK for ebaying).
    Which left 2 bras that are correctly sized, one is missing somewhere in the house and one was washed yesterday and is drying - hopefully before the Sainsbobs visit this afternoon.
    This might also involve visiting the Sainsbobs Tu section in search of a bra that fits even though I hate buying anything full price ...

I'm also no way affiliated with them, just think they're fab

    I've had my hair cut today at a different salon!
    What a mess, talk about going back in time.....
    It made my usual hair dresser look as if she works in a top London salon.
    Hope she'll have me back......

    I produced 3 lovely photos on my phone as well.
    I will either return or get my thinning scissors out myself!

    I watched you tube videos before I went on how to cut your own bangs!
    Some videos are hysterical but I wish I'd just trimmed my own fringe until I could get to my own hair dresser.

    Instead I've gone short, reminding me of being taken by mum when I was little and having it cut to last.......

    Morning LEJC

    We call him little fella around the house

    I was reminded this morning that I will lose him one day and " after all, he is only a cat"

    I've been getting rid of sachets of stuff too. Last week I opened a very posh looking Oreal pink thing and started putting it one my elbows only to realise that it was hair conditioner It's now balanced open end up ready to use next time I wash my hair. I've already forgotten to use it twice

    Should I just throw it out?
