Today I went with my Mum and Grandparents to the new Salvation Army store at Mona Vale. It is huge. I thought that moving to new premises would mean that they lost all the good things they had in the old store but they didn't. I bought too much. I got three tablecloths, some sewing odds and ends a beautiful summer dress in pale pink cotton eyelet, a lemon-yellow winter peignoir, and a beach wrap that is lovely and warm.
I didn't the get the original silk 50s dress that I saw there. I was almost in tears when I couldn't get the zipper done up at the side. It was the first "real" fifties dress that I have found and tried on. I was arguing in my mind wether I should have just bought because it was so amazing but I don't think it would have been worn and it was too fragile to try and alter it. My Grandma said that having on a girdle wouldn't help either so.... I let it go (sniff). It may very well always be he one that got away.
We are going with our (my favourite) friends to an Indian restaurant in Freshwater that apparently always gets good reviews (i'll let you know). This will be the first time that I have been to Indian while being a vegetarian so I am looking forward to it. I'm sure that they will have lots to chose from as some Hindu people are vegetarian.
Other than that for the weekend we don't have much planned apart from working tomorrow, but it's only one week out from Winter holidays so I think I'll survive.
