It was like the week where the straw broke this camels back. Oh yes! But after what felt like a complete breakdown i had the most wonderful enlightenment afterwards. You know. finally seeing that silver lining.
Let me start, on Friday i was out shopping and i lost my phone, in Matalan of all places. I was devastated. It sounds silly now, but i do everything on that phone. There were photos of my son on that phone i will never get back, there were little messages i will never see again and just general inconvenience of it all. I broke down in to tears and couldn't stop. The flood gates were well and truly open. I had felt for the past two weeks that my life was on some kind of downward spiral and i was out of control and well... unhappy. It took for me to loose my phone and open those flood gates for me to re evaluate things. For me to sit and think. I do put to much importance on the material world. I do stress over things that i can not change. I had lost all patience with my son and life. I think everything happens for a reason, and even though it was totally crappy that i lost my phone (and what's more annoying is that no one handed it in) , i have really done some soul searching. I have taken a breather. I have learnt lessons. And now. Now i feel so much better. I mean, I'm taking each day a time. I'm giving my son the patience he deserves. I am sitting and enjoying things rather than panicking constantly. It feels good.
SO yes that's why I've been a little absent over here lately, hope you forgive me? Normal programming will resume soon!

So my soul searching speech done, this is the outfit i chose for EBEW this month. Colour blocking was chosen, which when i first read that i thought yay, i love colour, easy peasy! Then i went to my wardrobe and found lots and lots and LOTS of patterns and not a lot of block colour. So i went back though some blog posts and soon realised i wear mostly patterns and colour blocking wasn't going to be that easy for me after all. So i pulled this outfit out of the very back of my wardrobe. And if im honest i don't love it. But all in the name of experimentation i gave it a good go. I miss my dresses :)
Anyway i'm off to do some work and go visit some of the other EBEW's.
Ps the only other time i did colour blocking and is probably a personal favourite!
