Shopping and fashion
Today I have to write my entry earlier than yesterday because I know that I will be tired after taking my accounting course.
Our little office, where we have the computer, is next to the kitchen so I can write and in the meantime I can cook. Today I am cooking stew with noodles and mixed vegetables salad. I am simmering the meat now and the salad is ready.
As I mentioned earlier while I am cooking I always listen to the radio. Just imagine, about a half hour ago I heard on to the radio my favourite song from the Beatles, I Should Have Known Better. It is a song that it is not broadcasted very often. As someone has strongly recommended in her comment earlier to sing along a song at least once, so I did. What is more, I danced in the kitchen. Of course, I was alone there so I was not given funny looks by members of my family. I have to admit that it was really fun.
Csilla is flying back to England on Saturday morning. We have still 4 days to spend together. These days seem to be very hectic. She wants to see her hair-dresser to have her hair cut. Then she has already made an appointment to see her dentist. And we have to buy some things that she wants to take with herself to England. Speaking of shopping, I would like to share with you how we bought clothes for my son. September 29th is a public holiday in Slovakia. They celebrate the revolution of 1945. Shops are closed, people do not work this day. So my husband had time for us and we went to Hungary to do the shopping. We wanted to buy some clothes for Peter because all his jeans, shirts and jumpers were outgrown. I think you can imagine that it is hard work for me, shopping with two men and mainly clothes. We always go to the same department store in Hungary because we can buy there all things that we want. We also have a great deal of luck on this day because we ended our shopping within two hours. To tell the truth I am not keen on shopping either. I also hate trying clothes on. I only like buying food at supermarkets.
Talking about fashion, people have various attitudes to fashion in Slovakia. For some it is vital to be dressed in the latest fashion. Others prefer comfortable clothes. Whatever our attitude to fashion is, we all need to have different clothes to wear every day, and something appropriate for special occasions. At home I prefer casual clothes like old jeans, loose T-shirts and slippers. When I go out I dress differently. I wear skirts, trousers, blouses, cardigans. We do not wear national costumes unless it is a very special occasion. How about you? Do you wear traditional dresses? What do you prefer to wear in your everyday life?
I look forward to reading your responses!
