Why the title? Because I’m feeling like a whale this evening! Lucy is home for the weekend so we went for a mooch in a local charity shop, a favourite pastime of mine. Anyway Lucy spotted a dress that she thought would look nice on me so I tried it on.
I came out of the changing room to show Lucy and as I did the lady who worked in the charity shop said it used to be her dress but it looked better on me. I was delighted until she said it suited me better because I’m bigger than her, I must have looked a bit shocked because she went on to say I have a fuller figure. As I have a complex about my weight, no matter what weight I am, I didn’t buy the dress. I think I’d feel fat every time I wore it if I bought it.
Onto other things I interviewed a lovely lady today for the next issue of Sligo Now. I came away feeling very inspired, there are so many fascinating people out there and I love finding out their stories. I even went exploring afterwards and I haven’t done that in ages. So interviewing people obviously agrees with me 🙂
I’m a bit anxious tonight. It’s our choir Christmas dinner tomorrow (yes I know it’s January) and it’s a year ago since I had my first panic attack – it’s going to be in the same venue as well. I am worrying but I have to make myself go or I feel it’ll always be hanging over me. Keep your fingers crossed for me.
