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!
