What with moving home, losing weight and a family wedding coming up it was time to reassess my wardrobe.
My suits and jackets to be precise.
I never wear a suit, I can't even remember the last time I wore one, probably sometime in 2007 and the time before that 1999. Anyway with a wedding in May in Cheshire, one in Middlesex and then one in France later this year I had to reassess the situation, so out they came.
At least it gave Jan a good laugh. She laughed her head of at my flares, shoulder pads and kipper ties.
I thought they looked rather smart, but it still hurt.
Thinking ahead to a birthday party in London later this year Jan, the expert on cheap travel, started to search for tickets. She found tickets Harrogate to London return, for both of us, for £28.20. Yes, you read that right £28.20 all inclusive. If you have to go south and stay the night and are flexible on dates and time then the train is really the only sensible option. At that price why would you drive?
