From Jeans to Macaronni

On friday I nipped into Asda on my way home from work as I needed to get some food in for my tribe of gannets whilst I was away. Whilst there I decided to buy myself a pair of new jeans for travelling in. Now for me buying jeans is not all that easy. For a start I am not your average size 12/14 or even 16. Thankfully I am no longer the size I was a few years ago, but neither am I the svelte 14/16 I was 2 years ago sob sob. So I am very limited to what I can find that is in my waist size. But to make matters worse I am only 5'0" so I can't wear the standard length jeans so I certainly can't wear the long ones. So many times I have looked through the racks and come across standard and or long but not short. But on Friday night I bought two pairs labelled 'short'.

Saturday I wore pair one (dark blue) short!! they were still dragging on the ground as I walked (even in my trainers) Today I wore the light blue bootleg cut pair........still too long, still dragging on the ground......what height do they think "short" is? Oh and to make it even worse my new jeans are so loose they keep slipping down................oooops perhaps that means I am loosing some weight big big smiles.

We had a lovely evening, lovely people, most of who I have met before, obviously as hostess there was the Fabulous Firebyrd, Quintessential Queen Vixen, Talented Trousers, Marvelous Mei Del and a new face for me Wonderful Wake up and smell the Coffee. Some of us took part in a joint experiment. The bubbles flowed (from bottle to glass to lips) very easily. The home made curry was delicious and I even ate some of the rice (I have not eaten rice for many many years so I am proud of myself for that).

On the way home I had a brief stop in London where I was treated to a kiss from a handsome Frenchman...............no don't get excited it was only a polite greeting from Mei's handsome partner.

On arriving home I was pleased to discover it is still in one piece (still untidy but at least I know I am in the right house). But I did start to wonder when my little boy you know the one that turned 13 less than a week ago, decided to cook macaronni cheese (from scratch for himself OJ and ET for dinner). Can you believe it he turns 13 and starts cooking.

meeting up with such lovely people is well worth 10 hours of travelling in two days.

I can sympathise with the Jeans thing I am between sizes for jeans at the moment and I just can't get a pair to fit me and I am the opposite with leg length mine are 33" which is really difficult to get because most long are only 32" and extra long can go upto 36", so more often then not when I get a pair that fit they trial on the floor too.

Pleased to hear you had a good night last night, you where ready for it...xx

Glad to read that you had a good time. I struggle to find jeans in my (big) size for my (long) legs. Ridiculous. Very impressed that your house was intact when you got back.

i can empathise with you on the jeans front - i've been known to buy cropped jeans which on me are just normal length, lol.

thank you for getting us to fire byrd's without you i would have been truly lost! and you are great company on the long drive xxx

There's them that want 'em short and them that need 'em long.....and them that just give UP trying to find a pair that'll actually fit.

*sigh*

THAT......is sad.....

But I'm awful glad the bunch of you had a lovely evening of it.
