Today was momentous for a small number of reasons.

First, Simon and I went dress shopping. It was an unsuccessful trip, in that we didn’t like anything on offer. What happened to pretty cotton summer dresses in pastel colours with easy swing skirts, a nice waist and a scoop neck? Why are all dresses shaped like pup tents?

There will be a second trip because I truly believe that such dresses still exist somewhere – just not in Nanaimo.

That said, the trip was also madly successful because I saw myself in a full length mirror for the first time in many moons  – and I liked what I saw! To hell with my worries about getting older! I am still in shape. Besides, I can hike – so what’s not to love about this body? Most importantly, Simon seems to like it – quite a bit I might say. So – hurrah!

More shopping: we looked at our first RV today. It had potential – well, mechanical potential. I didn’t like it, but I have been in RVs in the past and I know that they don’t all feel claustrophobic and cramped. The big point here is that we made a start!

Our road trip looms closer!

Days of fun ahead!

    Try Lovely dresses. Have purchased from them and if you check with the fit and size chart to find your size you won’t be disappointed.
