Celebrations in order (but easy on the cake)

Just checking that a suit I want to wear was okay (no dire white paint marks, etc) and discovered in the process that I’ve actually lost a bit of weight around the waist, and can now fit comfortably into those trousers again without fear of the button popping out.


Tonight was also the marking of a realisation that I am pretty dire at colour coding – black jacket, black trousers, black shoes, white shirt and black tie. I look like a bloody penguin (wanted navy blue tie… or burnt sienna but I had the option of black silk, black “wierd fabric” or gray silk – went for second).
