A falling out....

Sunday, 8 January 2012

With this damn laptop! seriously its conked out 4 times since i have tried doing this. My husband is a computer geek(in a lovely handy way) this shouldnt be happening!!! I'm starting to get computer rage. Its amazing how much i've come to rely on this piece of equipment! (please dont die mr laptop, i NEED you! big kisses and a promise of a full nice service for you if you stay alive!) 
So yesterday, Saturday. Saturdays to me have always been about shopping. When i was old enough to venture to the local town shops i would meet friends there and hit the few shops that we had. (this was before mobile phones, so you would arrange to meet prior and then hope they turned up. lol...or was that just me.. mobile phones are good!)This would then consist of loitering around the make-up shops, trying the perfume from the perfume counter and trying on whatever we couldnt really afford as teenagers. 
And then as i grew older, Saturday shopping would be for the ideal Saturday night outfit.
 Now as a mamma and wife with responsibilities, Saturday is mostly food shopping, or shoe shopping. Shoes for kids that is (seriously they go through them like they grow on trees!!). But i do manage to sneak in a few bits for myself sometimes. 

This was this saturdays shopping outfit....




Cardigan:Newlook
Blouse: Asda
Jeans: Next
Shoes: Tesco
Bag: Matalan

So when i say i mostly go food shopping, obviously these food shops have big clothes sections that often beckon me in....
The tapestry type bag from Matalan is lovely, it was £6 on sale and is a joy to carry. Its not quite as good as my MIL's vintage beauty, but will do me well.

Anywhoo
I hope you've all had lovely weekends..back to the grindstone i guess!
hope to be back soon...'puter permitting.
Take care all

  5. Cute outfit. I love it. I thought you might want to know that your text in that light orange color is very hard to read, The font is loopy and the color is too light. You may want to adjust it. Loves, D

    also, i completely understand about the computer frustration - my laptop was driving me nuts and i didn't even realize how much i must have been complaining until a new laptop appeared under the christmas tree from my boyfriend. the poor guy probably had all he could take lol

    so nice to meet you! i will be returning to visit your blog for sure!
