It's officially British summertime and warm enough to sport the 1970s chevron stripe play suit I bought from the "50p Lady" at last week's car boot sale.
It reminded me of something my childhood idol, Farrah Fawcett from Charlie's Angels would have worn along with her trademark main of flicked out hair and a pistol but, after a night on the tiles, it was easier to rock it up with bed hair and a vintage gillet.
Spring has sprung, the Magnolia has bloomed and the Forsythia is looking gorgeous.

We couldn't resist the lure of a morning's charity shopping yesterday. I'll be cold turkey for a month a week from tomorrow.

It was a well-timed visit, there were sales on in several chazzas so three of the four purchases were a £1 each. The velvet bolero was a little more but it does have a fancy label:
Not too shabby for £2.49
Off to catch up on all I've missed in Blogland and crack on with packing for Goa.
I'll try and upload our antics from last night if I can find any flattering pictures, at least one of us looks mental on every photo I've taken.
Hope you've had/are having fabulous weekends.
