Explaining myself............

Re-reading some of my more recent posts, I come across as whiny. Mainly about my clothes. So I thought I'd best clarify WHY I have nothing to wear, and why I'm just whinging, rather than doing something about it.

My husband and I are leaving this year, no later than December, earlier if we can, to travel the country for a minimum of 2 years, in a tent/campervan/something.

I have lost 10kg+ in the past 12 months (so 20+ pounds) and so have had to heave most of my clothes.  Which wouldn't be a problem, normally. I'd just go buy more. But, with the trip looming, and still losing weight, I have to stand back, and assess things.

How practical for travel will the item be? Is it something that will fit/look ok if I lose more weight?  Is it something I can lounge around a bush campsite, and walk city streets in? Does it pack down small?

So, that is the news, and the reason for my wardrobe woes.


  1. ah, whinge away! everyone has wardrobe woes - you can never find anything to wear you most need it. :)

  2. Wow, 2 years travelling sounds exciting! I'm having itchy feet now, haven't travelled anywhere since I got pregnant. Good luck with the preparations, I hope you get to find the best clothes in the right time. :)

  3. Wow your travel plans sound exotic, adventurous and a lifetime milestone occurance!
    I say forget what you're wearing and have the best time!
