To be honest, I'm not 100% sure about the poncho on me. What do you think? The colours aren't particularly good for me, though I could wear it with a scarf or necklace in more flattering colours. Also, as I'm only 5' and a bit (the bit is very important, so don't you dare forget it!) the style makes me look even shorter than I am. However it was a prize and I'm very grateful to receive it, plus there's nothing like throwing on a poncho before going for a walk in the countryside or into town on a chilly day - so I'm sure that I'll be wearing it a lot.
Did you notice my bag? You're not the only one. I was sitting in a café in Marks & Spencer while I was in London when I heard a voice say: "Isn't that bag lovely!" I turned to see the two women at the next table staring at my new bag. Yes it's a lovely bag, ladies - and I won it in a competition! Aren't I lucky?
How about these boots? I chose them myself as the fourth item in the competition, so I'm very happy with them too. I took them for a test drive this morning and, apart from a wobble or two on an uneven piece of pavement, they were fine for walking to our regular Tuesday morning get-together for coffee. I have real problems finding shoes and boots that are comfortable and stylish, so it's good to know that I can wear these for short walks into town to go to the theatre or out for a meal with friends, whilst hanging on to John's arm in case of wobbles.
The jeans in the top photo are the ones that I won (the bottom picture shows the pair I'm wearing today). They fit well apart from the length, but I suspected this would be the case. I take UK size 12 but I need short and not regular jeans and these are way too long for me. As Vicky isn't much taller than me she would need them shortening too, however my step-daughter Sarah said she needs a new pair of jeans, and she's a lot taller than I am, so I think Sarah may be getting an early birthday present!
