I have freelanced from home for 9 years. And for the last year I think I've worn the same grey jumper and jeans combo like every day. It's not that I don't have a wardrobe full of stylish loveliness you understand. I studied Fashion Design for god's sake! It's just that even with the heating on full blast it's flipping cold. And no-one sees me. Apart from the mums at school. And their idea of style is an anorak from M&S and a nice pair of mum jeans. Next to them I'm the most fashionable person EVER.
So yesterday I decided to make an effort. For myself. I put on a nice little black top. Still with jeans, didn't want the other half thinking I was having an affair or anything. I stuck it out for 3 hours. Shivering. Then put the grey jumper back on.
It's just too cold. And no-one sees me.
It's bad I know. But not as bad as staying in my pj's all day....or HORROR tacksuit pants!
