total cost of outfit:
Jacket - $5
Shirt - $2
Hat - $5
Jeans (from opshop on our last holiday) - $6
Emily's enjoyment of her new clothes - priceless
Total = $18 woohooo
We also found 2 nice long sleeved tshirts for Emily and myself, some clothes for her to grown into, and a nice appliqued Christmas tablecloth. If I had been 1 minute earlier I could have bought Emily a denim jacket also.
These 2 opshops in Nelson Bay seem to be particularly good - we got nice things last year too.
Now I just have to restrain myself from telling everyone about our bargains. Not everyone appreciates the whole second-hand thing like we do. But everything we bought is in such GOOD condition. We are thankful for God for providing these clothes that Emily needed - the cute little cap was the icing on the cake for me!
That was the most dramatic weather we had, but pretty typical of the changes. Sometimes we would be sitting on the beach in the sunshine and a thin grey cloud would come and rain on top of us, like in a cartoon. No problem if you are swimming at the time, but not so nice when you are a mummy with a cold watching the action! But it was a good holiday overall. More pics to come ...

Coming home was good, as usual. The house we stayed in was much bigger than our home, but bigger is not always better. We are enjoying our cosy home now, especially since the weather has turned cooler and we have the heater on, daylight savings is over and the evenings are darker. Of course the clothes horses full of washing from the holiday don't really add any ambience, neither do the sleeping bags etc waiting for a sunny day to be aired, but I am enjoying some real autumn weather and starting to think of comfort foods - soups, casseroles, crusty bread ...yum!
Looking forward to posting some photos ASAP
