It's a doozy alright! Many pairs of black tights are necessary but the dress I want to wear only looks good with transparent tights! And my nice boots have recently kicked the bucket so they can't keep me warm either.

This is going to be a night where my entire wardrobe ends up on my bed. And I mean everything.

Edit: I like them fajitas! I really like thicked-framed glasses on people though.

Hmmm, am thinking about getting a pair of these;



Just not sure on the silver branding on the sides...
I kinda get what you mean about the silver bit but I like them! They're nice!

A good pair of shoes dying is like losing a finger. Actually, moreso a thumb. :-/

Cheers - Will get them ordered in next week I reckon and see what they're like on. I don't mind wearing branding, but not too sure when it's as obvious as that - At the same time, it's better than a lot of their other specs.

Dying for new glasses though!

Yeah, I'd be the same! I just love that style of glasses, have two pairs myself but mine are cheap and cheerful Specsavers!!

I think they'd look good on you though.

If they nice, they're nice, no need to go expensive

Will give'em a go during the week and see what I think anyways - I haven't worn fully rimmed glasses in years, now that I think of it :-/

I definitely need to try them on before I put forward any dosh. And I'm saving monies for sales too






Which reminds me... Ooooh, sales!

Need to get prescription sunglasses or darkened lenses in the sales for driving. Winter sun is just awfully low.

With regards winter going out attire, I usually wear my thick black m and s tights to the location and just nip them off when I get there, given clubs tend to be roasting hot,

I really pity you Novella. I was out just doing the Christmas grocery shopping in Dunnes the other day and I was homicidal after about 10 mins.

People can be so ignorant.

I actually understand why people can be a bit... snappy, if that's a word. It's really frustrating shuffling around, trying to get past people etc. and queueing and all the rest, but seriously, there is no need to be downright mean.

As for work in general, make up your mind! Do you want me on the till, in the fitting room, on the shop floor? All I got today was, "Do this, do that". Every time I was settled doing something, I was told to do something else. I'm not gonna be helpful to anyone when I'm in such a bad mood from being tossed around all over the place.

Also, the shop is freezing. You can see your breath it's that cold. Grrrr.

Ranty Novella all done!!!!!

Oh it does! I was snapping on the floor today, so busy! And the mammies, bless them, looking for stuff their daughters had seen. "It's a dress, yeah, black, short, some sequins... do you have that?" We have about TEN like that. I try to keep my smile on, but sometimes it's hard!

I did see some of the mark downs for the sales though, looks like I'll be getting some new shoes!

Going back to a post I made a few days ago about not knowing what little something extra to get the OH.... Got him cufflinks
