Loving The Weekend!

I am sooooooooo glad it's the weekend. It was a particularly stressy, long, hard week in work, so I was truly grateful that even when I was woken at 6.30am on a Saturday, that no work was to be had today, Hoorraayy for weekends!


My lovely step children have gone to Tenby today with the other side of their family. Poor Neo cried as they left as he didn't want to be left behind. But we played lots and ate lots and that seemed to have cheered  the little monkey up no end.
We've been having great fun holding hands and walking from room to room. He makes us laugh as he has what we refer to as the exploring finger, where he prods everything with his pointing finger. He such a curious little thing, but he never ceases to amaze me.
We then popped to the shops where we proceeded to the check out for me to purchase this amazing bag:
It's a more yellow/mustard colour in person (in person is that the right phrase for an inanimate object, seriously I worry about myself sometimes)


But once at the till I quickly realised I had left my purse in my other handbag and not switched over before I left! I was so gutted and annoyed at myself. This is the trouble with being a lover of bags and bag hopping. I constantly change but forget to switch contents. 
You'd think, oh well accidents happen, but no, no word of a lie, I have done this 7 TIMES since having Neo! 7 times I have gotten to the checkout and realised I have no way of paying for my goods! Its a right pain at the supermarket let me tell you! 
I know, I know I NEED to sort my brain out! Stupid forgetful brain!


So after that Neo and I window shopped and then came home. I did wonder if this is supposed to be a sign from somewhere to stop me shopping. Divine intervention? More like crappy intervention (I really wanted that bag, plus it was the last one in the shop, boohoo)

"I spot a tomato...."

"....wonder if i can reach it"


My walking boy

Still having a few "all fall down" moments



Obviously next doors cat had really aggravated Neo!
Sporting his gorgeous Amber Teething Necklace

Have you ever tried amber teething products on your children? I have found ours has really helped. I'm a lover of amber jewellery and have a few beautiful pieces, but not only does it look lovely, it also has healing properties. We bought ours fromAmber Pumbkins and i have found Neo to be less dribbly and grouchy when he is teething once wearing his necklace. I highly recommend for any teething baby (and doesn't he look like a cool dude!!)


My outfit however I am not to pleased with. I love denim and this dress is like a blank canvas, and i still love the fact that I can think of literally tons of ways to wear it. However having seen the photos now, I can see it does absolutely nothing for me. Well nothing good anyway. 
I liked it as it has that lovely 60's feel to it, which I love. And it also reminded me of The Good Life, one of my favourite programmes (Barbara obviously, not Margo lol.)


But it is comfy and light and easy to wear so it will do for rolling around the floor and chasing after the pitta patta of clumsy feet.
I hope to have a better outfit for you tomorrow!
Hope you're having a lovely Saturday! I sure am! ( My Corona's are chilling for later as we speak, some one pass me a lime!!)

  3. Oh no! So sorry you couldn't get the bag!!!!! My youngest used to get upset when her older brother and sister went with their dad for the weekend. She didn't used to understand why she couldn't go too...eventually she figured out that when the other two left it was her time to have me and her dad all to herself and she loved it!!!! How cute is that baby boy!!!! Too precious!!!!! And, I adore your shoes!!!!!!!!!

  4. I love your little dude's teething necklace! Too cute! I wished I've learned about this teething when my little one was a few months old. She would chew on anything!

    I also love your turquoise ring!

  8. Besides Amber teething necklaces made specifically for babies, there are testimonials claiming positive remedies for adult pain or skin conditions. Who would have thought a functional, medical accessory exists right?

  9. That is a great outfit. You look amazing. And I just have to ask; do you work out? You have amazingly shapely, toned calves. I know this is a bit strange to ask, but could post some photos of you flexing them?
