I want a pink tennis dress

Today – A pink tennis dress

Despite always being careful watching the pennies I do like my children to have nice things. Sometimes I get an image stuck in my mind of something I would really like for them and it is hard to dislodge!

My beautiful daughter plays tennis. I have been avidly following Wimbledon with her and I have come to the conclusion that she would look proper peachy in a tennis dress. White isn’t the ideal colour as a speck of dirt and ping! and she does seem to rather attract it. So in my head a pink tennis dress it is. She agrees and says she would like one ‘very much’

Now sports clothes as I am sure you know, particluraly branded good quality ones can cost a lot of money. But then I found this …..absolutely EXACTLY what i wanted to buy at possibnle a price I could afford

Isn’t it gorgeous?

You have to love ebay for that.
You can search for exactly what you want and bid for it with  hope you get it for the price you want.


 I was prepared to pay up to £12 ( it will have great reselling  potential.  Some brands always sell and some style never date. This definitely falls into that category. )


I wait with baited breath……..


Argghh! Lost it. Late last night it went for £14 slightly more than I wanted to pay. Oh well. Keep my eyes peeled for another!

    Awww what a shame you missed it – I am dreadful it’s rare I splurge but when I just ‘WANT’ it tends to get bought regardless of cost with lots of explanations of cost in relation to use for hubby 😉 xx
