With temperatures reportedly as low as -15 degrees during the night and hovering around -5 during the day this past week, my Magpie Monday find was a welcome and timely one.
I was somewhat goaded into the purchase by a bunch of pensioners haranguing me in the Salvation Army shop telling me how stylish it looked - I really don't know why I let them talk me into it, I should have more confidence in my own decision-making.
Once I got it home, I wasn't sure if it made me look like a deranged Russian Hooker, or like I was wearing Blofeld's cat on my head, but once the snow came I really didn't care.
Toasty warm, pure sheepskin, I can stroke it reassuringly when I'm not wearing it. Maybe even offer it a bowl of milk.
When I went to collect Ruby from nursery wearing it, all the kids turned to look - it seems she'd told everyone that 'my Mummy's got a mad hat'. Huh. What do they know, they wear Upsy-Daisy T-Shirts for cripes sake.
Anyway, while I'm here I just wanted to say that it's Magpie Monday's 1st birthday. It all started with this post, and I wanted to thank you all for your support, for joining in and for spreading the word about buying second-hand. I wonder if Magpie Monday has converted anyone?
