I got a new dress!
O.k, so I know to some people that's like, 'So'. But this is my first brand new non charity shop dress for over a year, and I'm thrilled to have have it.

It's black with white polka dots on and a lovely full skirt.

It's such a treat and I can't wait to wear it.



Big hugs to my wonderful Hubby who bought it for me xxxx

What a great hubby. I know what you mean, I was thrilled to get jeans with no holes in the knees last month!

A new dress, how lovely, Ellie!

As my grandmother (and mother) would say, "Wear it in good health!"

Model it for us and post some pics!

Best,
Susan

How sweet of your hubby!!!

I don't like buying clothes.. I'd rather take that money and buy yarn... this past Dec. my dh finally said GO GET YOU SOME JEANS... I had lost a lot of weight and was rolling them at the waist...

As a mom of 3 kids...I know your feeling!

Its such FUN to get brand new clothes for YOU! My kids and hubby get all the new stuff...they have school and work...while I have, well, housework. And who wears new jeans to vacuum?


Although, I do admit to wearing my tiara when I do laundry..sometimes...

Enjoy your new dress, Ellie! Is it 50's style? I love those, but my hips are against it! I finally got myself a few new tops, because last year's ones are getting ruined by constant sweating and heat . How are you feeling?

Thanks guys, I will take a photo tomorrow and post it.

I'm feeling better Thanks, I was taking some new drugs but they disagreed with me and I'm back on the old ones. But my back is much better, it still hurts a bit, not half as much as before and the injection got rid of the nasty headaches.
