October Vignettes, Day 14

When I came back to the UK in the winter, I needed a jacket, so we went to TK Maxx in Milton Keynes, and I got a grey jacket that fit perfectly: £30. I wore it to all the functions I needed to as a new member of staff and brought it around to presentations and dinners. It was a 42R, and over the last three months, it's become too big to wear, the shoulders drooping off me pathetically. We went to the charity shops on the High St this weekend and I hurriedly replaced the grey jacket with two others, which fit much better at the shoulders. Sharper and cleaner lines: two for £8. The other jacket is lost now, until I get fat again, sometime in the future.
