Summer here we come!

It's so lovely to shed the final layer of jacket or cardi and declare it to be at long last, summer! I'm very black and white in my gathering of clothes for the seasons, in that I really only want to acknowledge summer and winter. I never go shopping thinking "What shall I wear this spring/autumn?" For me, the two main seasons can be adapted to the two minor seasons just by the beauty of clever layering. 
And here we are in the brief, but beautiful season of summer with all it's opportunities for dresses and skirts, flowers and flounces. Today's frock was a recent purchase from Tesco which is always an exciting place for me to forage. While everyone around me is skimming about Tesco in Truro, their trolleys laden with the weekly shop, I head to the oasis of calm that is the clothes department. I usually seem to be the only one snooping around these racks which suits me fine. I love to find bargains within the bargains, the final reductions calling to me, helping me get even more for my money. This dress was in the sale and came in at a snip of a fiver. As I stand there dithering for a nano-second as to whether I need this, I think of when I'm back at home and will that five pounds be worth the mental struggle? Usually I weigh up how much food I would get for that sum. Then I consider how many times I'll wear the item, and compare the two. The outcome is usually in favour of the clothes, which is no surprise.
