Tuesday 09.11.10


I think it is now winter!! I could not get warm at all yesterday - so last night after we have stocked up at the supermarket, I made a huge pot of sweet potato and chilli soup!

The weather is also another reason that I have on what I so today. The shop is very hard to heat and with the door opening and closing there is always a chill in the air.

I did not get much wear out of this polo neck last year due to pregnancy and this year I am loving it. It has a lovely silky feel to it and it works well under other clothing. And as the poncho/jumper it is just cosy and comfy!

Wednesday 03.11.10



But hey - I am here! That is something!!

In work two days in a row, but all for the good of my little family. By working today I can have Saturday off to be with the best two people in the world (and a very cute dog). As a family we have a Sunday together but I have managed to work out a way of getting one Saturday a month off so that we can get two family days! Just means that I work a Wednesday instead!

It is a bit of a muddle as we have no childcare on a Wednesday. So today my lovely BF got up at 4am and went to work until 9am. He then came home and looked after Orla to let me come to work. My sister (who was working night shift last night) has come over to our house to let BF go into work until 5.30pm. I will be home by 5pm to let her away to her bed!

It is wet and miserable here today and the wind that is blowing is a rather chilly one (it is just as well that we have a fabulous range of hats, scarves and gloves now online) so I decided it was a day for a jumper!

Hello...... If you are still out there checking here for posts, I'm here!!

I am very sorry that I have been MIA - it has been one of those months. I have been putting very little thought into what I have been wearing lately and I have fallen into the mummy wardrobe category! There is nothing wrong with it (it is not yoga pants and a hoodie) but it is so not me! I have been feeling a bit crappy about it (and my teenage skin and bad hair) so therefore have not blogged which in return makes me take even less care over what I am wearing! It is a vicious circle I tell you!

But, I have given myself a shake - and helped myself to some new bits and pieces from the shop and I feel better about stuff!

Today's look is:

Leggings - Blendshe @ i am.....
Slip - Vila
Tunic - New Look
Cardigan - Vila @ i am.....
Boots - Target

Life has been busy lately, Baby Orla turned 6 months last week! Can you believe it?? We have been going to a local playgroup on a Thursday and last week they had a Halloween party and my clever girl won pass the parcel (she did have a little help).

I thought I would post a picture of her in her costume - this was taken on Sunday after we had carved our pumpkin!
