Unbelievable....

Well DD's wedding over...we have yet another one a week on Saturday..
Having not bought shirts for many year....Relying on presents for special occasions, B'days ect.
Just before DD's wedding got up off my derriere and purchased some new ones.... Bally heck ain't they gone up in price..

Well today I had the day to myself....decided to go out...as it were peeeing down this morning.

Bought a couple of photo albums ....fair price I thought....bagged a couple of bargains at the local garden centre, lavenders in 1.5 pots for £2.oo each..

Went off to bye some new neck ties.....Its got to be some 3****..since I last purchased a tie,,,,,,,
£15-30 a tie......
I nearly sh********t myself....

Finally found a couple ...that will do me..

Come on in these days how often does any guy wear one?

Where are the days I could buy 5 shirts and 2 neck ties for under a tenner?

Perhaps Back in My Day..

Diggers, me 'ol' mate........you should have let me know you and saved yourself 15 nicker. I've got ties for every occasion, formal, informal, shoot days, funerals, and works Christmas pisss up.

I also have 12-15 dickies somewhere, so Hercule Poirot, Keith Floyd and Frank Muir have got nothing on me.    



I know I know.........there are a couple of  herendous ties in that bunch, they are from my young days when loud 3 piece check suits with baggy trousers were in.  

Remember them days.

That's exactly why I went out to buy some new ones....could match that bunch and add a good few more OTT ones into the collection..
