My hubbie will look smart LOL!

Goodmorning everybody!
Already for some time Jan wanted and needed a few new trousers. And then yesterday morning the aweful event took place, he had to throw away one of his favourite ones. Yes, part of the cloth was sooooo thin, that he could actually put his finger through it. So he finally decided he should have some new trousers. And the more extraordinary it was, because he allowed (yes, ROFL) me to go with him to town centre.
He hates normally to buy clothes, especially when it is needed to try them on in the shop. But arrived at the store he took a good look around, chose several models and tried them on.
At the end he ended up with 3 pair of trousers. But if you know me, I always look around some more, the more because it is VERY difficult to get Jan into town for buying new clothes, sigh!
Of course I saw some nice stuff, grin, specially a sweater and showed it to him. And oh miracle, he LIKED it and more miracle, he decided(after a bit of work by me, grin grin) to buy that too! It will go well with all 3 new
trousers and so my hubbie will look smart this autumn and winter.
Today we will have to go to the market, potatoes are needed and some veggies and I will have to buy the stuff I can use to shorten his trousers a bit. Don't know how you call it, but it looks like a thin band of fleece, that you can put at the cloth, take a moisty textile, like a handkerchief or so, and then iron it and voila.... it glues the hem, nice and easy. I probably give it a few stiches too at the sides, for extra security. As I have no sewing machine, it's the quickest way to shorten his trousers, otherwise I will have to stich it by hand.
And may be, just MAY be, Jan will look for a pair of new jeans at the market, he could use aother pair and then he will be all ready for the next season.

It was real pleasant weather yesterday afternoon, so returned from the town, Jan went for a moment into the garden, with his crosswords, but also made his little tour through the garden and came to me full of enthousiasm, to tell about his find there. It seems that our toads had a busy summer, LOL, because under a little tile he found a whole bunch of eggs. So if all goes well, next spring we will have some new born toads hopping around again.
You can find the wonders of nature sometimes in your own garden.

Hmmmmm, time now to get me another cup of coffee, just a little bit of playing time with my PSE an then get ready for the market. Let's see if there are any miracles left for today, like Jan finding and buying his pair of jeans, hahaha! If so, I know that for the next year at least I shouldn't mention anything to him about buying perhaps a new shirt, or sweater, but let's be happy with yesterday and perhaps even today ROFL!
I have today the second download of the kit "Whispering".
Have a lovely day!

Men are really terrible when it comes to buying new clothes. My father's trousers were always shabby at the knees and he used to wear the same shirt all the time even if he had lots of other clean ones to choose from. My Mum used to throw his old things away sometimes and say that they had ripped in the washing machine.

The stuff you use for shortening trousers we call wundaweb in England. It is marvellous stuff.

Thanks so much for the second part of the kit.

Lots of luv

Good afternoon Kyra:)
I did make it back.:) I was hoping to see Jan in all his finery.:)I bet he was almost heart broken when his finger went through the fabric on his favorite trousers.:( Jim and I have favorite clothes we LOVE to wear around the house too and have had to throw them away because of that same reason.It's like parting from an old friend.:)I do save the buttons though from my blouses for scrap-booking.LOL
We have a frog that comes around our tiny pond out front..and the next thing you know the pond is full of minnows.:) I love to see them ..but they sure can make a mess.hehe
THanks so much for sharing part 2 of your PRETTY kit.:)
I didn't get a card made today..but did get some files organized on my computer.I was way behind...and am almost caught up now.:)

Some guys are funny that way. It takes a small miracle to get them to finally buy some new clothes. My Michaeland my brother were like that too. Gosh, and they looked so wonderful when they were all dolled up. If you know Jan's pant size, maybe you could just buy the jeans, shorten them and slip them into his clothes drawer. Maybe he won't even notice!! lol.

You have a wonderful evening. Hugs, Edna B.

Wel that sum up to be a hilarious post of yours. I very much appreciate that men do fall in the darker side when it comes to choosing clothes. Anyways I m equally happy that your husband has you along with him. So hope your husband will look great. Keep blogging.
