It's my birthday soon and usually I choose craft stuff for my birthday and Christmas presents. This year I'm having a bit of a change and I chose this outfit for my birthday. We just happened to be in Sainsbury's yesterday and they were having a 25% off clothing sale. After a good search round I decided on these trousers. They are dark brown with a faint stripe. A bit more looking at the tops and I decided on this one. It looks great on the hanger but I'm not really certain if it's me, the neck feels a bit awkward. With the 25% off the outfit came to £25, not bad I think. I've had a bit of trouble with clothes recently. Up until about five years ago my weight was pretty stable, then it suddenly started to increase and I ended up at 11 stone. All my nice clothes didn't fit any more and I got rid of them. It was a tough thing to do. I did manage to get down to 10 stone but it keeps creeping back up to 10 stone 6 pounds. At 5 feet 5 inches it doesn't look too bad but it always goes on my stomach so my waistbands are really tight. Don't think I'll ever get back to eight and half/ nine stone again. So, now I just buy easily affordable clothes, it's no use paying a lot because they might not fit me for long, not that I ever spent huge amounts in the first place.
