Back in the heady days of my serious weight lossing, one of the pinnacle moments was the day I realised I never had to shop in plus shops any more. Woohoo, no more moment.
Well lately I’ve been looking for a dress and everything everywhere is seriously crap. Arrgghh I hate all the clothes around at the moment. I finally found one — at City Chic (that’s a plus size shop for those not familiar with it). It’s the most perfect dress ever and I love it a lot. But what’s with that shop – where’s all the oversized floral prints and the cheap synthetic fabrics? Where’s all the “figure flattering” flowing dresses?
How awesome is that dress? Btw I have no idea what is going on with the guy in the background! Or with my zombie facial expression! Yahs for the dress though – and for having to buy an extra small 😀
I also found my favourite Japanese chocolate: Crunky. Oh how I love you Crunky. My diet rule is no chocolate but Crunky, on account of Crunky doesn’t make you fat… plus I have to go into the city to buy so major effort involved. But once you’ve had Crunky, no other chocolate cuts it.
Anyway, I was going to layby the dress on account of having no source of income at the moment but then remembered that Christmas is coming. So I bought it on the spot then phoned Andrew and told him he’d done my Christmas shopping – I’m such a good Mum!
Anyway, I have been thinking about life changing decisions and such at the moment. I had a call today about a job I’d applied for in Canberra. They wanted me to go for an interview – the catch was that it had to be Monday morning, they wouldn’t change it to any other time. To get to Canberra on Monday morning, I’d have had to pay $400-500 for a flight. I had to make a split second judgement call on it and decided to turn it down. That’s a lot of money to spend with no guarantee that I’d get the job plus it was only a 2 month contract. Meanwhile there is NOTHING in Melbourne – and I mean nothing. All the jobs are in Sydney or New Zealand and, while I’m flexible about moving, those are both more than I could handle I reckon.
