It was my birthday yesterday, and I'd been dropping hints (which I'd forgotten about!) that I'd like one of those padded tartan work shirts. And woo, look what I got - not just one padded tartan work shirt (a Dickies one to boot), but a fluffy tartan hoodie too. How cosy I shall be while boating. I like these because I particularly don't like fleeces. I know they're wonderfully practical and light and warm, but somehow they're a bit too modern, and anyway, they remind me too much of a certain kind of bossy woman. I bet PE teachers all wear fleeces nowadays.
