    Hi all,

    I was trawling the charity shops this morning, I’ve been looking for a perfect coat for going to the football. It had to be warm, waterproof, hooded and City blue (of course). I found the ideal one, it happened to be a man’s one, size small so £4 handed over and the bargain was mine.

    This got me thinking about how in the past I had quite a lot of men’s clothing, just so I could fit in to it. I wore a man’s watch too as my wrist was too podgy for a woman’s one. At least these days I have the choice.

    Hi Chris

    You fantastic little bargain hunter! Four quid – you couldn’t buy a coffee in a swanky cafe for that!

    You have raised a great point here. Having the choice to wear whatever you like instead of what fits. I think it’s up there in the top ten of the best things that happen after wls, don’t you? Seeing something that you like, is fit for purpose and a bargain to boot (plus money to charity) – what a win:win situation all round?

    I will forgive you that you do not support the mighty Spurs, though as a Northern lass, why would you haha!? You are a true Manchester fan though, supporting the Blues 😉

    My first boyfriend was a Spurs fan, back in the days of Hoddle, Crooks and Ardilles. He tried to convert me but I couldn’t get over losing the FA Cup to you in 81. Ha ha.

    Hahaha! That’s hilarious. Poor old Ozzie used to get a rum deal after the Falklands didn’t he?

    I’m so glad I can get through turnstiles so easily now. I went to the old Wembley to watch Spurs win against Leicester in 2008, a few months before my gastric bypass. I was anxious the whole way there – not about winning or losing but whether or not I would get through the turnstile. I only just made it. BUT, I had bruises down both hips where I had become wedged in the tiny seat. I almost didn’t manage to jump up out of it when Spurs won!

    My nephew was playing for Spurs at the time so I am so glad I braved the humiliation. It’s something neither of us has to worry about anymore isn’t it? Hurrah for wls 🙂
