Bought this in a charity shop today!
Wore the new trousers that Sarah bought me for my birthday! Took me ages to decide about them as she said I could change them if I wanted to. I really wanted to like them but I was a bit unsure about the colour and the style. Despite, as she pointed out, being well known for wearing tye-dye t-shirts in multi-colours I’m used to either wearing black or blue trousers (or occasionally khaki!) so the plum colour of these was difficult to get used to. They were also were slim fitting not like the boot cut ones I was used to.
I wore them round the house for a while with the tags still on to see if I could get used to them. I was concerned about them riding up when I had my boots on but they seemed ok (although there was a bit of me expecting them to do so as soon as I left the house and walked down the street). Eventually I decided to give them a go so Sarah cut the labels off and I went out. They were fine as I walked down the street but in the middle of Wilkinson’s I had to stick my hand down inside the waist band and remove the spare button in a little plastic bag as it was scratching my leg!
What was nice was that for the first time in ages I could walk along the street without my trousers falling down and having to pull them up every few minutes even though I’m wearing a belt. Just goes to show how much weight I’ve lost over the past 4 months!
