Spring has sprung!

I'd like to start with some pictures of Spring, happening:

It was a little overcast today, but strangely that just made me enjoy all the blossoms and flowers even more. I'm weird, I know.

My main news today is that I have made a discovery. My quest for new work-appropriate clothes has failed for a reason: Woking has no M&S (at least, not that I've been able to find, apart from the tiny expensive food shop next to the station). I've seen lots of nice clothes that I wouldn't mind wearing in my search, but this Spring's chief look is apparently Casual, with a sideline in American Highschool Stereotypes (I don't think I've ever seen so many baseball jackets), neither of which is at all helpful to me. Then I wondered what that good old institution M&S had in stock, and had a quick look on their website. Suddenly, I found all the sensible blouses I had been angling for! I'm seriously tempted by thisthisthisthis (although have a look at the colour choice - that's a funny sort of white!), this and this (I like the Star Trek-chic shoulders). Note that for quite a few of them, 'Plain' is a listed feature. Perfect! I could wear them all to death, maybe even tucked into sensible trousers (if I found some sensible trousers), and never have to think too hard about getting dressed again. I bet they're all machine-washable and non-iron too! 

I also rather like the look of this, lest you fear M&S has brokered some dark deal for my soul. I just want to stop feeling so bored with my wardrobe!

That's it from me for today. Tomorrow I will be weighing up saving my money and a trip to M&S in London.


Favourite lyric of the week: Our love is like the border between Greece and Albania.
