Summer Clothing

It is time for me to discuss the issue of clothing. Being a girl i love to go shopping for clothes and remember with envy when i was 15 that my dear friend Rowena used to have a clothing allowance, which she spent at a particular shop in Cambridge which is now a building society (she obviously didn't spend enough) So when we started this job i was very excited to receive the free uniform. We get long trousers.....short trousers...polo shirts....sweat shirts and the most unshapely fleece you have ever seen, all of which are in green with the appropriate trim, so dear reader what i want to know is why do i only get to wear my long trousers and polo shirts and only mange to do with-out my fleece once or twice in the week; it is the middle of June and as i look out of the awning it is raining again!!!!!!! The toilet block is going to be unspeakable at cleaning tomorrow when every one has trodden mud in again. Hey Ho, but i really do want to wear my shorts.
However on the positive this new way of life has meant i have lost weight so at my parents 60th Wedding party this week-end i managed to get into a dress which has to be a result. Oh and we got to see our Mand and Rich again so that's always a bonus.

We stayed with my Sister for three nights which was fab and great to catch up with her, we then stayed a night with our dear friends Ray and Barbara which was a real treat, and all i have to say is the Warden had quite a few treats while he was there and as a result blamed this on his performance the next day on the golf course, not the wine or beer. Anyway we are back to work now and the site is getting quite busy so all we need is the sun and all will be well.
