My mother loves her new coat

On Tuesday I took my mother shopping to buy a warm jacket for the winter. We did eventually find a warm padded jacket and she decided to wear it out the next day.

It was quite expensive, and when I came downstairs that morning my mother was in a panic because she thought she had spent too much money and as she put it 'be in trouble with the bank'. Everything was fine but I've now tried to convince her to write everything down when she does telephone ordering so that we can keep a record.

Here she is posing for a photo.

I teased her and called her "Michelin Man" do you remember the advert for the tires.

What a lovely lady. And the coat is nice, too. Padded so it looks nice and warm, not so padded that she looks like she's going out into the Arctic.

I'm thinking a bright royal blue scarf and hat with it.

Wow, she looks warm and funky! Those padded coats are very 'in' at the moment so it's good to see your mum is 'with it' ;o)
She looks superfine!

Mother looks very smart in her new jacket. Its warm too.

Chris, my friends really liked the Westminster brochure you sent me. I have put it on my coffee table so that all can have a look.

Ari she has masses of bright scarves so she will be able to dress it up.

Amrita so glad your friends are enjoying the brochure.
