This summer I am going to wear pretty dresses. I have a couple of nice summery dresses but not enough to get me through every hot day until March. I treated myself to a maxi dress with my tax return. It fits perfectly, the material is stunning, the dress draws attention and every time I wear it I get comments about how beautiful it is. It was $104 that included postage. I cannot be buying dresses at this price to fit out my summer wardrobe.
About three weeks ago, I hopped on EBay. With a passion I hate online shopping. However I found some cute dresses that are my style, I got my measurements because I didn’t want to be caught out buying a small if I needed a medium. I found a cute little dress from an online store overseas. White lace, with a neckline that sits on my collarbone and a hem that falls to my knees, slight A-line, summery and pretty. Snapped it up for the $1.99 plus free postage. I mean how ridiculous is that price?
I came home last night from work, the only light on in the house was the light over the stove. I could faintly see white material draped over the chair at the end of the kitchen table. It was my dress. This morning after dropping the boys off I came home to play dress ups with my pretty new dress. So glad that I ordered the Extra-large dress when I am usually a small to medium. Because the pretty little white lace dress with the neckline that sits on my collarbone and the hem that falls to my knees that I ordered. Is actually a pretty little white lace dress with the neckline that sits on my collarbone and the hem that falls to my barely my arse. So instead of having a new dress I have a new top.

Another little writing beauty from my book 642 tiny things to write about from my bestie.
Write 20 things about your first car.
- It was a yellow Mitsubishi Colt.
- It was a hatchback
- I bought the bucket of bolts that it was to annoy my Dad.
- My dad hated that car with a passion
- My dad made me learn how to change a tyre, check the oil and water before I was allowed to learn to drive it
- It was for sale in the front yard of a house at Wamuran. Mum and I saw it on the way back from friends that lived in Toowoomba and every time I drive past there I think of the buzz box.
- It had no air-conditioning
- It had a great stereo
- A couple of days after I got it and Mum was at work I tried to learn how to reverse it myself and ended up in a tree. And dented the back of it.
- One of the cows that we had at home at the time sat on the left hand front panel.
- It would scream, everyone could hear me coming in that car.
- I learnt to drive in that car
- I took a corner in that car at about 80 kilometres an hour and my mother reminds me of this every time we go around that corner.
- That car drove me to school every day with my sisters, to work every Saturday, to schoolies, my first full-time permanent job, to my first boyfriends house.
- It used to cost me $10 to fill it
- It would splutter to a stop if I was stopped on a hill.
- The seat covers were brown
- My sisters learnt to drive in it
