Friday is my birthday. Thanks Mum and Dad for the parcel which arrived by overnight mail from Perth yesterday. It felt a bit like a shirt through the packet, so I opened it early (to save choosing an old one to wear today).
Yes, it is a shirt, but one with thin horizontal stripes! (My Mum saw me last October and I guess she's had faith that the weight would continue sliding off.) It's been ages since I could get away with that particular pattern (ie. vertical stripes having a wonderful "optical illusion" slimming effect). Being able to pick up compliments all day was a great ego-boost, especially knowing my belt has run out of belt holes, too.
