Peter Pan...

...collars are just so pretty. They invoke thoughts of vintage and prettiness and also of a cartoon boy who could fly and was  kid forever (I'm jealous!)

I've only got a couple of peter pan collared articles, but this is my most recent favourite:




Next shoes... sooo comfy and practical too! Going to be wearing them a lot!
Shoes

Belt was bought yesterday for a few pound from good old Primark
I love how I bought this belt and it depicted all the colours from the top perfectly.



I still love blue/yellow. The cardigan just pops against the blue.
The jeans are also from Next. These are the lovelies that, going back a few weeks, I burnt with the iron, along with my carpet. Well these are the new (smaller size!!) replacements. Bought for half price in the Next wonderful Sale!
They are my fav's they complete an outfit and are comfy  yet smart.

I do love this outfit, as I felt I could run around after my super  speedy son (rat up a drain pipe springs to mind, he sees an opening and he's out the room!) But yet I felt put together and pprretty.

Excuse the hair, I'm a bit stuck with it at the mo, I want a new cut but I don't want to sacrifice length as I'm only just growing out a "it's a bit short" doo. Last hairdresser was a bit scissor happy and now I've got the fear. But I'm fed up of the same old same old. I feel like I've had the same style for 14 years! Any suggestions?

Today consisted of me, having a banging tension headache, being miserably tired and short tempered. Not a good combo. I almost had a meltdown so hubby sent me out with strict instructions to buy "a frock". I wasn't refusing, I grabbed my purse and was out the door before he could change his mind.
As it was I bought a bag of chips and a savaloy, two outfits for Neo, jeans for Mia and a Sonic the Hedgehog Tee for Talyn. I feel a frock should still be bought soon as it can't be taken off the cards once it's put on, right?!
Stormy weather and stormy mood so it seemed. After I had an hour and half to myself meandering round a few shops, hubby sounded like he was on the staring a meltdown in the face so I drove home and being a nice wife brought him a red bull to give him some wings. (men are cheap and easy to fix!)
Only after 3 Nurofen and 2 paracetamol (crazy, I know!) did the headache decide to subside...
Mummy's don't get sick days.... or off days.... or holidays....

Here's a few snaps from today:

Thunder storms 

I do love a snappy dresser

I need to tell you all about this! I will get more pics soon, but this is the hand painted wall of Neo's bedroom by my amazingly talented husband. He's one of those clever types who can do anything! (thank god really cos I can't do much lol)

Just wanted to show you this,You can now purchase babies from Iceland lol!
Nanna and Bampa took the babies out and the heavens opened. Nanna improvised, you can tell she used to be a Girl Guide Leader!



Headache gone finally, I'm off for cuddles with the Hub's and a film...
Enjoy your day/evening everyone
