Fruitfull Monday afternoon!

Goodmorning everybody!

Oh, I am posting a bit late today, but I woke up later than normal, but it was after a very nice sleep. Sometimes you wake up and you know you had a good sleep, but still are feeling tired, or it takes long for you to really wake up. But this night I had a real sound and wonderful sleep, at the least it felt this way waking up.
So I don;t mind I am a bit later, I feel almost great LOL.

Monday afternoon I did go to town center, I wanted to look for a new coat, the one I have for winter is ready to retire, so I went with hope to find one. Not always so easy for me, because I have to look at the children's department, yeah! Often lady sizes are just a bit too big.
Oh my, I felt like in wonderland when i entered the first store. Rioght away I noticed a sign, that on many coats/jacks they had a discaount of 50%!
Well, you know me, never letting go a bargain if I can, and yes, right away I saw a nice jack, that fitted well, and was to my liking. I have a picture of it, well, it looks almost like it, I only don;t have so many stitched parts on it and I have it in a kind of darker cappuccino color.

The jack is really thick and warm, so I will be well protected at times that the temperatures are low.
And if it will freeze really hard I still have one that reached to over my knees.
And do you know what I payed for it? Only € 15,00! Now you can call that a bargain.
After that I went looking for one or two more Christmas presents andoh, what a good day, I found them.
So my trip to town centre payed off.
This month I also received a payment of a pre-pension thing I joined for several years when still at work. Oh, it's nothing substantial, very, very modest amount each month, just a few tenners, but money is money.
And i had also back payment from Januari till September and it comes at a real good time, now that we are a bit uncertain of the money we will have next month. also not substantial,(mostly because there are dedected lots of taxes) but every penny counts, LOL.
It did me feel real substantial older when I received it, yeah, I realized I am heading towards pensionary age real quick.

Yesterday was just a normal day, did some grocerie shopping, turned on the washing machine again, even did a little bit of designing for a kit, and today I think there is no need to go out , so I may do some ironing, before the pile gets too high.
And while the washing machine is empty now, I better also change bedsheets.

Today I have some lovely clusters for you from Arlene, made with the Love the Memories kit.
And I may have already another kit for you on Friday. Whoooo, I am slowly getting back again.
Have a wonderful day!

What luck you had in finding a great bargain on a new winter jacket. Wear it in good health my friend. I think I may have to shop for a new jacket this year too.

It is good to hear you sounding in such great spirits. Today we are going to have a nice warm day before the cooler temps take over again. Tomorrow will be about twenty degrees cooler than today. Ouch! I'm just not ready for this winter thing.

Now I'm off to finish catching up on my blog readings. You have a wonderful day, hugs, Edna B.

Good mornin' Kyra, Isn't it nice that all your new is happy? I think so! I'm trying to get some pictures of my crazy family but they insist on making photo bomb type faces. What sort of photo album do they think I'm going to leave them.

Thank you and Arlene for the pretty Memories kit. Have a great weekend. Maybe the weather will be good enough so you can walk in your garden. Kitty will probably like a little stroll in the garden, might find a few bugs to chase!
