I have a hole in my cardi!!

I have a hole in my cardi!!

Sigh!! I just noticed the little bugger around the elbow when I popped into the ladies. Typical!! I have a big cheese client meeting this afternoon and if that wasn’t making me nervous enough I now have to worry about a hole in the elbow of my cardigan as well as the fact that earlier I put my heel through the bottom of my trousers and now I have a safety pin holding up the back of the hem. Way to make a good impression. I keep self consciously pushing up sleeves in attempt to disguise the hole amid the folds. Hopefully he won’t notice!!

It would be the holey cardigan I ended up wearing with the only pair of dress pants I have that aren’t at the dry cleaners along with the top I would usually wear with these pants. I must have tried on half my wardrobe this morning – worked too late to be bothered to do it last night like a well organised professional woman. This is what happens when you work too late to pick up your dry cleaning. I left my apartment in a state with a pile of rejected clothing on my bed after spending 15minutes hurriedly trying on outfits. Most of my tops were too tight in all the wrong places, either my clothes are shrinking or not having time to go to the gym is taking its toll on my waistline, although you’d think the weight gain would be negated by not having time to eat proper meals*, perhaps my fat has redistributed itself.

*I microwaved a cup of edamame for dinner when I got in around 10pm last night. Isn't it great being a grown up?

Oh dear...I'm SORRY to hear about this...but I hope everything went well in the end and the client didn't notice anything. :-))))

Crossing my fingers for you!!!

Thanks Amel, surprisingly the meeting seemed to go quite well. I have thrown my cardigan away now so I can avoid making the same mistake twice ;-)

My goodness!!!

well I share your pain whole heartedly. At least the hole was somewhere decent, unlike a friend of mine who stretched during a work meeting, showing off a nice big hole in the armpit of his sweater. lol.

I think we can never have enough clothes. Time to go on a shopping spree. Also when you get back to the gym, everything will be better. I keep telling myself that. ;-)

Hi Kitty, yes it was easily concealed by pushing up my sleeves. I hate those moments when you don't realise you have a hole until after the big meeting which has unfortunately happened to me a couple of times :-)
