Outfit: Casual Friday






Having been promised a high of 22°C and some sunshine today (and, more importantly, no rain), I am taking the opportunity to wear a pair of fabric flats whilst I still can. Although I seem to recall this pair got a thorough soaking the last time I wore them and appear to have survived intact, so perhaps I shouldn’t worry so much.


Last night the young man’s mum called round to pick up our spare Freeview box to take to their caravan at the weekend – our region goes digital from next Wednesday and so they’ll need a digibox for the TV to still work. I went off to Boxercise class and we had a chap taking it as the regular girl (same lass who usually takes Aqua Zumba on Tuesdays) is away. The whole class was boxing which I liked better than breaking it up with circuit training or steps or abs as usually happens. My arms were aching by the end of it though!



When I got home I made a treacle tart, using a recipe from the Weight Watchers magazine. It involved filo pastry which I’ve never used before and well, it’s weird stuff, isn’t it? Needless to say I managed to make a few holes in it but fortunately I lined the tin with greaseproof paper before I started so it didn’t make too much of a mess. The tart didn’t turn out quite as it looked in the picture, but it wasn’t bad for a first attempt and it tasted yummy. We have the other half of it to eat tonight.


The office I work in on Fridays tends to be quite warm (unlike the one I’m in the rest of the week – we put the heating on there on Tuesday as it was so cold!) so I figured I’d be OK in a short sleeve shrug (and managed to get one of the ties caught up in my tank top whilst taking pictures – d’oh!). I layered my fabulous brightly coloured scarf over the top though, to ward off the morning chill.
