Late night ebay



Today, whilst contemplating a new dress purchase (see post below) I still managed to buy another dress!.

I have a bit of a thing for yellow* at the moment, maybe because the sun is shining. Or maybe because I am in love with my yellow shoes… and just want to wear them as much as possible!

This was a late night ebay purchase, but I was pleased with it.

It is late evening in the pic, so I'm a tad dishevelled after a long hot day in the office and two grubby children to take care of.

Total spent today: £1.80 (plus postage)

*Cheerful sunny yellow is an attention getter. While it is considered an optimistic colour, people lose their tempers more often in yellow rooms, and babies will cry more. It is the most difficult colour for the eye to take in, so it can be overpowering if overused. Yellow enhances concentration, hence its use for legal pads. It also speeds metabolism.

Sher, after pics always have shades on!
Jane, ooh, I might have to look in Dune... these have a small heel so not always most practical for running around
