Lots of my friends and family live in the UK. The weather there has been terrible this winter and it’s affected the post. This has extended my Christmas, the gift receiving part of it anyway. I had three presents arrive in the past week and Christmas cards have continued to arrive.
This morning I got a large box from M & S. Last week I used some of the money I had been given for Christmas to buy myself some things in the M & S sale. I love that they now ship to Japan and that I can indulge in January sales without having to leave my living room. I had forgotten that I had bought a big fluffy dressing gown. I was so excited when I pulled this out of the box. It’s much too big for me, but that was a deliberate choice as I wanted something that I could wrap myself up in. Marty tells me I feel like a build-a-bear and really I probably look like one as well, though maybe not as cute as a real one. This outfit certainly isn’t flattering but it feels amazing.
