Talking of clothes the shops are full of autumn/winter fashions. Very tempting. I'll have to resist, unfortunately, as
(a) I'm not working so no salary = no new clothes.
(b) I'm trying to cut down on buying new, sticking instead to 2nd hand shops, and to making do and mending the contents of my existing wardrobe. No fashion magazines for me either. So I'll carry on crafting and maybe get around to sewing that velvet ribbon on to the hem of my aged cashmere cardi in a bid to liven it up.
