99 days but who's counting?

99 days until Younger Son gets wed. 


After taking my books into Waterstone's I decided, as I was in town, I'd have a look at some wedding-type clothes. That didn't take me long.
So then I browsed through t-shirts. Sadly Husband has afflicted me with his mean streak. Everything I liked my head screamed, 'how much?!'


You know the shop you're in isn't the right one for you when you say, 'that's a nice top,' and it turns out to be a skirt.


Guess I'll have to make do with last year's (and several years before that) t-shirts, assuming we have any summer. But the main reason I wanted a new one was to go with the Monsoon (expensive shop) skirt I bought from a charity shop for £5. It's pretty and, cherry on the cake, it's a size 10 and it fits me. So I had to buy it.


Daughter is going to have to take me wedding-outfit shopping. While I would walk past outfits without a second glance she forces me to try things on and I'm sometimes surprised by the outcome. Sometimes. 


That also means we have 99 days to become fluent in Italian ...

Becoming fluent in Italian in 99 days will be a piece of cake .... finding THE wedding outfit might be harder .
