This is a short post wishing you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year and gosh, don’t we all want that! I am restraining myself and won’t say too much about the circumstances in the UK but the situation isn’t brilliant, what with so many people being told, at the last minute, to not mix with anyone over the Christmas holidays. My heart goes out to all of you who are unexpectedly alone this year. But let us hope it is just this once. Hold on to that – next year…. it should be different. And I don’t know about you but when this is all over I shall embrace life and the living of it. Three cheers for that thought!
Here’s also some very big cheers for our wonderful NHS. If the UK has a universal religion I’d say it is the NHS. Yes, it’s flawed and there are things that could be corrected and currently it’s creaking at the knees but whatever political party we vote for here in the UK we all love our healthcare system. What’s not to love – thank you for being there for us throughout our lives and especially now.
And yes, I’m using some old photos, many apologies, but what with some more of that insomnia, plus a flareup of my blepharitis and consequently not wearing any makeup, photos for this week’s blog are a total no-no! Anyway, here’s my charity shop find of the year!
On my last post I showed you a rather black outfit I might wear for those WhatsApp calls but actually red is such cheery colour. I shall wear this skirt I think, and don’t forget that in the same shop on the same day I also found this item, a Jaeger jacket – what a find that was!
So, I have decided to wear this cheery outfit for Xmas.
I shall casually hang the jacket around my shoulders for those calls.
That’s all for now, it really is a short post – lots to do. Amongst other things we’re playing postie and ferrying around the presents for our children and grandchildren who I am so very happy to say live near us. I have much to be grateful for. So we’re seeing them briefly in their respective gardens, handing them their presents and moving away swiftly, and that is all. But as I said before, next year…..
Back next week with my end of the year Lockdown Diary. Until then, know that I appreciate you all very much.
With love, Penny, the Frugalfashionshopper
