Stop for a moment and...

...and look out of the window at the washing on the line.

It's been a lovely day, but sadly I haven't been further than the bottom of the garden to hang out the washing. What I have been doing is dealing with emails as I try to get things sorted out for my new teaching job and also doing a bit of crochet.

Next on the agenda is an exciting trip to the Co-op for food and then another walk down the garden to retrieve the washing, which due to the lovely warm September sunshine, should be dry and ready to iron.

Regarding the new job, I'm wondering whether to rush out and buy some new clothes now or whether to wait. I have, without really trying, lost about 7 lbs and am thus between sizes. My size 14 (UK) jeans are now rather loose, but the size 12 black trousers I used to wear last time I was teaching in a college are still on the tight side. Will buying more size 12 clothes jinx the weight loss, or will I buy more size 14 and end up with them looking baggy?
