never really been a big fan
of the colour purple - I'm more
of a pink girl really, but there's
no denying that it's massive for
this season. And I have to admit,
the more I see it, the more I'm
being drawn in.
You see I've always thought it didn't
really suit me, but I have to admit
that honestly I had never even tried
it on before. In an effort to be
different I tried a gorgeous soft-purple
scarf on and I was really amazed
that it was actually quite flattering.
I even tried a full-length purple
velvet evening gown on and although
it was fartoo
'posh' for me, I really did love
the colour. So it was absolutely
serendipity when I went to buy my
regular jeans in my local department
store and there they were in purple!
Now I knew that wouldn't have my
size but just as I was about to
turn away a pair from the back of
the rail shouted 'I'm here, I'm
here, I'm your size, buy me!' (Well,
that's what I told my other half).
So I did.
But, absolutely true, no word of
a lie, a couple of rails in front
was a purple t-shirt, in my size
all alone on a rail of coats. Obviously
abandoned by someone else their
loss was my gain. I began to think
the elves must have been at work
on my behalf but when I reached
the till I was absolutely flabbergasted
(it takes a lot to flabber my gast
believe me!). There, all displayed
beautifully on the end of the counter
was a collection of bath products
in gorgeous purple, absolute truth!
And what was written as the next
item on my shopping list - shower
So into the basket it went and if
I didn't believe in fairies before,
I definitely do now!
