Right, that’s it, you know all about me and my blog now.

Have you managed to find something to wear today suitable for this hot weather? Like a summer’s day. I have dug out a pair of linen trousers. My husband finds this amusing as I had no summer clothes in my super organised capsule wardrobe whereas his shorts were readily available. He says my system has fallen down. It hasn’t, I just had to open one of my perfectly labelled summer storage bags and dig something out, job done. My next capsule is not due to start til 1 June for summer clothes but I could bring this forward to 1 May if it continues to be hot, hot, hot. I’m absolutely loving this capsule wardrobe thing, so easy, although it is still a work in progress.. 57 items in the current capsule (I like to refer to it as my Spring Collection!) when ideally it should be around 37. I started off at over 300 items of clothing last year so all in all I am doing pretty well and I love it. So much more space in the wardrobe and I actually have more to wear not less as most things go with the other things now.

It’s Friday film night and I have no idea what we’re going to watch tonight.. I need to go and do some research on the same. For dinner there is a plan. We are having an easy dinner (but one of our favourites) which is just pasta, chicken pieces and pesto sauce, with grated Parmesan on the top. And probably some nice white wine for me as above and David will probably have beer to remind him of the good old days when we used to go down the pub.

Keep well everybody, I do hope you’ve got enough Easter eggs in. I will be very disappointed if Ocado doesn’t bring our enormous eggs tomorrow.. fingers crossed they will be there! Waffle over and out xx
