Yesterday, everything seemed to come together: it was a lovely sunny day, I felt stronger than usual, and Lovely Husband was quite upbeat as well. A couple of books that I had requested from the Library were ready for pickup, so LH drove us into town and, when I had finished choosing my books, we went for a cup of tea. I have been so ill for several months that we haven’t been to any of the local garden centres for ages. My back has been very painful for the last few days, so it was good for me to have a walk around after we had finished our drinks. I am looking for some dark grey jeans, but couldn’t find any.
For once, I didn’t wear a scarf. As Spring is now here officially, I dug out this aqua/mint cotton cable jumper and paired it with my sparkly butterfly brooch. The green crystals match the colour of the jumper almost exactly and I think that the bangles in coral pink, cream and eau de nil worked well.
Today’s (yesterday’s) outfit:
- Aqua cotton cable jumper – Lands’ End.
- Indigo cotton jeans – Cotton Traders.
- Multicolour crystal and gold tone butterfly brooch – Sonrisa Boutique.
- Rose, yellow and white gold, with crystals, earrings.
- Coral pink enamel and gold Agama bangle – Halcyon Days.
- Eau de nil and cream enamel and gold Agama bangle – Halcyon Days.
When we got home, I had a close look at the butterfly brooch and saw that the metal is discoloured on the back and sides. There are black patches! It is such a lovely decorative piece and I would be very sad if it became unwearable. So, I have put it away in a box and will check it from time to time to see what is happening.
Today, we have not gone out, but I have managed to do a few useful things around the house. My back is a little better and I am trying to keep moving around as much as possible. Tomorrow is counselling again and I hope that we are able to go out for lunch afterwards.
