Saturday we have been invited to London to an expenses paid event being held by Dairylea which much to my husbands amusement involves the dreaded C word. Those who know me, will understand the humour. "COOKING" is not something I enjoy. Anyway I intend to put on my best "ooh, yes I can do this " face and join in the fun.
As it involves a trip to London on a train with the twins, we will of course be dressed in our Sunday Best. I was brought up in the "we might not have much but we always polish our shoes " generation. Also having been in the army being made to starch shirts within an inch of their life and polish shoes so that I could actually see my face in the toe cap, might have something to do with it.
These days we don't have the luxury of splashing out on extravagant new outfits, infact I rarely buy anything that is not either second hand or on sale. I actually enjoy finding great branded clothes at the lowest possible price. People often comment on how the twins or I am dressed and I am sure they don't believe the paultry amount of money we actually live on. So I thought it might be fun to show you what we will be wearing, where I bought it from and how much it cost.
