A cat and her Toy Mouse

Hello, I've had another full day! Our eldest daughter came home last night for 6 days break from the country job she has taken and she called in to say Hello. We decided to go out dress shopping as I'm not really sure now about the dress I bought to wear at her wedding. We found a lovely long dress this time but a bit pricey for me. So was going to think about it and then get back to them in the next couple of days. Katie dropped me off home and I got stuck into doing some jobs in the kitchen and then thought I would ring our other daughter and see if she wanted to catch up at another dress shop so I could have another look there as they were a bit cheaper and I knew she wanted to order her bridesmaid dress too. Well, they never have the right size to try on and so I had to try a couple that were too small and leave the zip undone, LOL. just so I could get an idea of what they would look like. One I really liked was only a size 8 (LOL, I didn't even attempt to try that one on!) so I decided not to go and order it just in case it didn't sit right, it would be a terrible waste of money.
We had a quick cup of coffee and then parted ways, Rachel only had to travel about 2 mins to go home and it took me over 30mins.
They both rang me up later to tell me that one of the other bridesmaids had seen the dress I was interested in on-line for a quarter of the price so it looks like I will be taking a chance and buying it that way.  If it is not quite right and I have to have alterations I should still come out cheaper than the one I saw today. I would have had to order that and wait for it and also would have had to have the bust taken in, the shoulder straps shortened and lots of the length cut off as I'm only 5 foot  ( a real shortie!!!) Gone are the days when you can just walk in and something will fit properly. The sizing is all whacky, I am going to have to order a dress 2 sizes larger than what I would normally wear.  Weird!!!
Anyway after all that, I did sit down tonight and make a card as well.
