Hehehehe did you guess? Yes that's what some people, including my niece, call Primark. It's not a shop I often go in, I think it's ok for younger people to buy cheap clothes, as many of them would look good even in a bin bag! However sometimes Primark do have stuff that I like. I've had a pair of sandals and mules which were great and some vest tops. Today I bought 3 t-shirts for £8 and the material is good. Do you remember that programme, 'Never Mind the Quality Feel the Width'? LOL Well I always feel the fabric. As well as this striped t-shirt; photo taken in a mirror; I bought a brown one and a white one. All long sleeves, but I'll probably shorten the other 2. The brown one I plan to embellish and the white 1 to dye and embellish. The striped one and the brown are cotton with 5% elastane while the white is 100% cotton. In the interests of research for anyone who may wish to pop round to their local Primani and buy some, I have washed the white one and can tell you it has retained it's shape and has not shrunk (handwashed but I feel it would be fine in a washing machine at a low temperature). A word of caution though, buy a size larger than you normally get ;-)
I thought I'd show some of my plants. The hydrangea is in the front garden, but the colour is much deeper than it looks here. The clematis and passion flower are on the wall from of my balcony thingy. There are 2 clematises actually but one has finished flowering. I usually call it a verandah but apparantly that has a roof but somehow balcony conjurs up images of something projecting out from a wall; mine doesn't, it leads out from the living room via patio doors and then there are steps down to the garden so is it a balcony or indeed a patio? Little note - I do usually have my hair straight, but when it's overgrown sometimes I just wash it and leave it; sometimes just too lazy to blowdry it then straighten it!
