Competing!

Tara and me are heading off to Harrogate today to meet up with my mum. We are hunting for bargains in the charity shops of course! In honour of there being lots of yummy mummies in H'gate I thought I would dress up a bit and try to compete with them - hah!! My jeans are new wide legged ones that I got on a shopping trip to Tesco with Alex (we go to all the best places!) and my top is new too - from Primark. The shoes as you know are also new and they actually feel quite comfy. How they will feel after a day traipsing round the charity shops of Harrogate I don't know! You can only just see them in this picture but they are the reddy/orangey shoes I bought the other day.

I feel a bit guilty because I'm wearing all new clothes and that very rarely happens - I normally have at least one thing that is secondhand on. The coat I'll be wearing is from a jumble sale so I don't feel as bad but still feel guilty.

I have lots of goodies to show you from the huge annual jumble sale and the charity shops of Ripon but they will have to wait until a) they are washed and b) we actually have some decent weather to photograph them!! I'll add the goodies I find today into that pile too.

I like the jeans. Might have a look in Tescos. I love a good charity shop 'shop'! And I too usually wear at least one item of clothing that is second-hand. A good form of recyling I think.

Now that sounds like an absolutely perfect day out to me! Have fun (Oh, and I hope your feet don't get too sore).

Very smart! I never quite managed the 'yummy mummie' thing - too many balls to juggle - hehe!
