Hellloo Lovelies…

Hope life’s treating you well!

Today was my first proper day back in work after what felt like a really long(and nice) time off… i am SHATTERED!! 

So on my last blog if you remember i had nothing of any interest to say? Well this weekend kinda made sure i  had loads to tell anyone who would listen…

First, a lady fell over right next to me in Tesco car park and broke her knee. The poor lady fell to the floor in agony after slipping on cardboard and i actually saw her knee maneuver into a position that a knee really shouldn’t. I ran over (firstly saving her shopping, what a wally!) then realised that she couldn’t move and then i called her husband and 999. I stayed with her and tried to make her laugh, poor woman in agony was subject to my jokes… i felt awful for her. 

So after that little drama i was driving back home after doing my shopping, and hub’s called to say his parents would be with us shortly…. WWHHAAATTT???!! I was so not at all expecting that! the house was its usual perpetual mess, that normally i like to try and at least hide behind cupboard doors and in drawers and under any where else i think i can get away with.

But no time, so they saw my house in its spectacular mess… good thing is we all survived. I had a bottle of wine on saturday night and talked about Sicilian life 50 years ago, Musollini and current politics and generally put the world to rights with my Father in law.

My Mother in law also brought with her the most wonderful vintage embroided bag, which used to be her mothers. I have informed her that if she ever not need this little beauty anymore i would give it a very happy home. We then talked about fashion an hairstyles of years gone by. An my god, she is a woman who’s tried it all!! Respect to the MIL!

After all the commotion of the weekend i was done with all the excitement and was left with my teething baba who decided he wanted to scream and cry until 11.30 sunday night. Poor little thing, didn’t know what he wanted and i was reaching my least fav place… Witts End!

Thankfully hub’s was amazing and got him off to sleep, eventually!


 This is my “my office is cold and messy so practical is needed” outfit

Jumper: New Look
Shirt: Peacocks sale
Jeans: Ebay
Shoes: Seychelles from Modcloth
Necklace: Primark

still loving ma’ shoes

looking moooody!lol


I posted this pic last week from one of my all time fav TV shows….

This outfit was inspired by this pic



Husbands comments on this jumper today:

“you’re wearing that today?!”

“keeping it real are you? “

“it looks like that jumpers old and knackered, oh is that the look you’re going for?”

“you know that textured spray paint they have in toilets, your jumper looks like that”

You might be right in thinking he’s not a fan of this jumper. I am though:) you cant really see on the pics (and i wish i had done an up-close but dog walkers were giving me reallllyy funny looks) but its the kinda wool that my mum used to knit with when i was 3 years old, with lotsa different colours speckled through it. I have to admit, the speckles caught my eye on a number of occasions today, where i thought i’d suddenly become a fluff/lint magnet. Another plus point though, it has elbow patches. I have a weakness for elbow patches. 

This is the nature walk in the woods by my work. It was so nice coming here today to eat my Greggs Chicken Mango sarnie for lunch. 

So nice to get a breathe of fresh air at lunch before heading back to head buried in the books.

Right I’ve chatted your ears off for long enough…. I leave you with a few snaps from the last few days…

he thinks broccoli are baby trees and likes to sniff them. He looks high on broccoli here :os

Every year at Xmas i have a Poinsetta, every year at xmas i kill a Poinsetta. Dad is on hand to keep it alive this year for me!

    Ouch to the broken knee! Poor lady and well done you for getting in there and helping. That vintage bag of your Mum-In-Laws should be yours as a reward.
    Gorgeous pictures, loving your yellow shoes. x

    Love the jumper & shirt combo, the colours look lovely together 🙂 & the note about brocolli being baby trees tickled me, they're baby trees in this house too and ripe for sniffing just like flowers apparently!! Hope the teething process is as painless as possible – have you seen the amber teething necklaces? My boy wears one and has rarely had any issues with his teeth 🙂 Your in laws sound really lovely as does the embroidered bag 🙂 x

    Haha I do exactly the same if my fiance tells me his parents are coming over! I just pray that one day they don't decide to look in our cupboards.. AVALANCHE! (it can't be just a welsh thing!?)
