Years ago, I bought a skirt that was so breezy and comfortable, I wanted to wear it forever.
I did wear it for about five years, then in 2004 or 2005, the kilos started piling on and the skirt was put away in a drawer until I lost the weight again.
Well, the weight loss didn't happen. In fact I just kept expanding and buying ever larger jeans and shorts and t-shirts.
This year, I'm making a more determined effort.
Knee length and comfortably loose around my waist.
Well, it used to be.
And I'm hoping it will be again.
See what I'm up against?
Years of chocolates and pastries and second helpings.
With gravy. And mashed potatoes.
Let's not mention the icecream, since I only discovered a brand that I could eat without digestive upset a couple of summers ago.
