Here comes the sun (briefly, before it rains again)

I was so excited to see the sun out on Saturday after a washout of a week that I put on the brightest clothes I could find. I've had the cardi for years and picked it up in the M&S sale and I got the dress from a charity shop. I wanted it when it was in store a couple of year ago but couldn't find it in my size and tried to bid on it a few times on ebay. I only paid £3 for the dress and it still had the tag on, I love charity shops!
