Still not sleeping well, which sucks - I'm guessing it's because our house stays too hot overnight and as we live on a main road it's too noisy to leave the bedroom windows open while we're trying to sleep. Still, I prefer the heat in the daytimes, so I shan't complain too much ;)

I was remembering yesterday that last year I'd noticed very few women wearing shorts - there're more this year though. Partly because 'shorts' are in (in quotes because I don't really count kneelength as shorts, personally), but I think it's also partly coz it's warmer :) I was noticing this mostly because I did a bit of clothes shopping earlier in the week, and I'd quite like to have got some new shorts (both pairs I wear are several years old), but everything I could find was too long. Or white & not denim (which restricts one's underwear choices unnecessarily, I think).

I did have success with the rest of the shopping - a dress to wear to Daz & Emily's wedding. I tried on umpteen, but most were either cut really weird or colours that made me look washed out, even with the tan I currently have. I do quite like the bright colours that are around, but you do have to be several shades darker than this white girl can manage to properly carry them off ;) I tried the dress I bought on again when I got it home, and I've a few more doubts than in the shop, but it'll do. There's mostly something about the neckline I'm not sure of, but I don't think I've bought a dress in years that I liked the neckline of.

I find that showering before bed cools me off enough to permit sleep during really hot days. Glad you found a posh frock you liked. I begin to regret not going to Daz' wedding now.

I always find that when I shower before bed my hair is always a little damp and I end up with a wet/irritated face from my damp pillow... and my hair isn't even that long! How do you get around this problem?

My hair is shoulder length at the moment so I wear a shower cap.

my ex-boss got himself a chillow, said it's helped him no end.

I'm still wondering whether to wear suit or 'skirt' for the wedding

Wear the dress and do the can-can! :)

not a dress, a skirt (and I don't think I'll be the only one there in one either)

I know that, but can-can dancers are usually in dresses. If I say 'skirt', does it mean you'll still do the can-can? :P

I can't bring myself to abandon the cut-off denims. When the ones I had for 10+ years were irreparably worn out (thought still fit nice) I visited charity shops for cheap jeans and cut them up for shorts.

I'll probably be in a suit for the wedding. Unless I can be tempted to go dress shopping between now and then.

Go on, go dress shopping - I'll make it worth your while.

Hmm, I'd not thought of that. I may buy a second pair of the jeans I've currently got & cut them down (so long as I pay no more than I would for shorts, then I've got my money's worth ;) ).
