My clothes have 3 lives; (1)New & smart (2)Getting a bit "worn" looking so wear about the house or nipping to the shops, or under a big jumper if won't be seen (3)Gardening/decorating.
Occasionally I wear something decent if it's just a quick job to be done, but normally it's perm any combination from; jeans, shorts, T shirt, sweatshirt, bodywarmer, scarf, hat with dangling earflaps, thick or thin fleece or old waterproof coat. I too, am a baglady. Gloves can be v. thin vinyl if doing something wet, or other cheapies, & thicker for thorns if required. I often just wear 1 glove. Kneepads are a must, unfortunately the velcro is wearing out on my Marksman "for carpet layers" ones & can't find identical replacements.
OH & I got Dickies boilersuits - good for keeping the back warm, but not for undressing when I go to the loo.......
I can't "do" a Discodave as our back garden overlooks a golf course - don't want to put them off their stroke!!
