FYI I am shaven headed (OK .. bald), bearded, my stomach is wider than my chest and I make a silver back gorilla look naked !!!!

So ,,,, can you go wrong with a knitted monsoon dress for £6.... I can !!!!

No guess it would have to be a floaty dress then with puffed out shoulders eh Foggy???

Oh that did make me laugh.

Ah thanks for that jan, great stuff. Just got to rem who all the different people are with the IDs then.

Julie I agree re TKMaxx, I keep going and looking every now and then because they do occasionally have my size, but its such hard work looking on the jumbled racks.

Not heard of them Jan, I'll have to stick to Asda for now eh.

Helen you always managed to get good bargains. I can't rely on clothes fitting if I buy from ebay. Need some boots thou may have to have alook. My flat ones that are the only ones I can wear at the moment are very scruffy looking, and one of the soles is coming off a bit

They do have a website, but it isn't always as cheap as Asda. I like their sale rail!

I've just got a pair of suede boots from Ebay for £30.

i was looking at boots last night on ebay, I really need flattish ones and thepictures don't help. I know I could email questions.

Also I can't quite make up my mind if I should look for size 7 or 7.5 cos my feet have either changed or the sizing has.

The ones I got are flat, I don't do heels anymore! Perhaps you should try some boots on in an ordinary shop to find out exactly which size to get?

I really love flat shoes now, I go for comfort rather than style! Thankfully flatties seem to be in fashion at the moment.

Remember those shoes I had for FF last year? I've never worn them since as I had to make sure I had somebody to hold onto while wearing them and i just felt so uncomfortable!

Mrs Squidy - found a lovely dress at Tesco for my daughter’s school prom, going to make a few alterations and add some fancy bits to glam it up and should be good to go!
Get Tesco points as well - we save them up for Christmas!

I like heels for special occasions but being so tall have to really be careful or I tower above everyone else!

Sounds like a great dress squidy! Hope daughter enjoys her prom, my daughter loved hers x

Hope she has a good time Squidward.

We still have the dress and think she will alter it to knee length if she ever gets a suitable funciton to go to.

The ball my one and only ever invite to one has been cancelled by the College due to lack of interest, only 3 tables sold, so I really am Cinderella!

Hi and welcome to the forum, you should always put what you actually spend, I do realise that we all have to be thrifty within an IVA, it might be worth having a look at your expenditure when you revisit your I&E.
