Outfit: Celebrate Good Times, Come On!



Office Chantelle

After such a great start, yesterday went downhill rapidly, only to redeem itself again in the evening.

I had a doctor’s appointment in the morning, so left work to drive to it. I got as far as the roundabout outside the office and my car engine cut out. It started again but conked out when I tried to move it forwards. I managed to limp it to the side of the road and called the office for back up. Three of my lovely fellas came out and pushed me to the layby a bit further up. Being the only girl in the office definitely has its uses! I called the breakdown service and they said they would be out in a couple of hours. The moving men arrived with the packing crates and we were ‘speed packed’ – the boxes practically being snatched off us before the lids were even closed.


The RAC man arrived and diagnosed a faulty cam sensor. Of course the car behaved itself perfectly as I drove home, the RAC man following behind just in case.

The young man had texted at lunchtime to say we would go out for a celebratory meal and so after I’d walked to the supermarket (we have friends coming up for the weekend today so the shopping still had to be done) I got ready to go out. We walked down to the local pub and enjoyed a delicious meal – the steak pie that I had was particularly tasty. I ended up putting a black cashmere cardi over the blue top, as I usually feel chilly in that pub. I also changed my shoes once we had decided where we were going.

No pictures today as I’m working from home and am just in skinny jeans, a couple of sweaters and my tan Obi belt. I put my tan boots on when I walked to the village at dinnertime.

I also took a pair of trousers to the alterations lady yesterday, to get them taken in. They are suit trousers and the jacket still fits me so I’d promised myself that when I got to my goal I would get the trousers altered.

  1. That's terrible about your car. I'm glad it all worked out.

  2. Thank you. It's still not fixed yet. Fingers crossed it will be tomorrow.
