I GOT INTO THE SIZE 18'S!!!

DID YA HEAR ME??

I GOT INTO THE SIZE 18'S!!!

I came home form work this evening and as I was taking my uniform off, I looked longingly at the size 18 jeans hanging on the wardrobe door. I thought about it for about two minutes and then tried them on.
As I slipped my feet into the legs I was thinking "You are setting yourself up for a disappointment here".

But they slipped up quite easily, when they got to my hips
 I thought "This is it, no further surely?"
They slid over my hips easily.
"Never" I thought, "This cannot be right" 
"Okay, they won't fasten"
 Nervously I tried to button them,
"It won't happen"

It Happened!!!
They buttoned!!
They zipped,!!
They fit!!!

I can't move too well in them, but they fit!!!

I told Ralph on the phone and he was delighted,
he said he will get me a pair of size 16 to hang on the door now.....
Who is a Happy Bunny then?

woooohoooooo!! what an amazing feeling. I tried on a pair of size 16 jeans on in Sainsburys today out of curiosity. I couldn't quite do them up but I'm not far from it. I'm going to buy a pair once I see a pair for short legged people. What a fab NSV xx
