    The funny thing is I tried a swimming costume on in Sainsbury earlier this year, it was on a size 12 hanger, was worried because it seemed rather tight, got it off and looked at the label, it turned out to be a size 8!!!! No way am I a size 8, just shows how varied women's sizes are. The annoying thing is my OH can go and buy a pair of size 34 trousers and they will fit

    Hopefully when it comes back in stock, it may reflect the new lower price.

    Im up to the letter M on my Christmas card list.

    I need a break

    Its been such a long day today.

    We had been to a family thing earlier and the sky was so light when we came out. I was mindful that the shortest day was a while off but mentioned that I felt the nights were getting lighter.

    Its only quarter past two said mr TM
