Wednesday was a brilliant day mostly. I went with my mother to a dress shop in the neighbouring town and we tried a few things on. My size was missing from the rack but they had the next size down. What the hell I thought I'll try a couple of things. They bloody well fit! Albeit slightly snuggly on the breast area. Unusually for a british shop I was brought other next size down clothes to try on by the staff and they magically fit too. The lady picked a coat up off the hanger and it looked great. Shame I already have two perfectly adequate winter coats and i'm shrinking or I might have been tempted to buy. My coats are fitting well and I have commandeered an old dressing gown of my mother's too.
Well being had been established earlier on in the day I attended a yoga session where the instructor was fabulous, she came right upto me and talked to me about any injuries etc I might have, instead of bellowing across the room. She is truly adoreable, even though she worked my legs and digestive system with alacrity.
Today I headed out with him and we went to a coffee bar near home. I fell for the vanilla caramel coffee with erm cream. Fortunately I hadn't eaten lunch at that point so I counted the coffee as a small meal! Watched him eat 2 chocolate biscuits with a sense of curiosity rather than a desire.
I have found that my junk food snobbism is getting worse and in the local supermarket I continue to eye up what people buy and I catalogue the food into two: good foods and junk. It's quite a fun way of spending time at the tills. (For the record, I never eye up the people- just the food choices on the belt) junk good junk junk good junk good. I have always had a fascination with other people's shopping baskets. I sometimes like to see what they are planning to do- night in with the tv and beer or meal for one etc. I also try to imagine the menus they are creating from this food. I sometimes ask myself if I would like to go round to their place for dinner... actually can I confess that I ask this question of every basket I look into.
