I am really looking forward to the school holidays in a few weeks. We are going down to London for a few days and nights. Lots of exciting things planned to do. Some places we have been before and some we have never seen. Today's outfit was from last time we went down. I was a little warmer then. This outfit was super comfy, stylish and perfect for 8 miles walking around London...

Butterflies on Primrose Hill...






What I Wore~

Dress/top ~ Matalan
Jeans ~  Abercrombie and Fitch
Shoes ~ Longsdale

Whoo I am in love with a park!!

All the times we have visited London and I had never been to Primrose Hill before. When we went to down to stay for a few nights for my marathon, we stopped by. My husband had a list of places we needed to visit, this was on top of his list.

The views over London were stunning, breathtaking and I can not wait to visit again!!

This one is on top of my places you have to visit when going to London now. Have you been before? We even went to London zoo a few times last year, and missed it.

How could we? it is only just across the road!!

Today I am so tired, I have done so much but also so happy. My husbands day off so we went out for the day to Bakewell. A rare evening out at the pub too.

 I have found out today I am on the Brit mums short-list for the style bloggers!! So exciting and I so needed to share...

Thanks so much to everyone who voted and I just need to ask one more little favour?

Could you please vote again to get me down to the last round???

Do You Still Have Dreams?


Happy Mother's day to all the mums out there, hope your all having a lovely day...

It's great being a mum and getting spoilt once a year by you kids :)

My children brought me lots of yummy chocolates, a swimming cap and goggles (for after I've eaten my choc's?) to help me learn to swim better instead of only doing breast stroke and hurting my neck..


My son is home from university for a month and I had forgotten how much he eats!! feeding 5 of us is a big shop twice a week but 6!! haha no stop shopping and filling the fridge back up...

I know he is on a mission to help me get fit, help encourage me with my running, swimming, fitness and watching my biscuit and cake obsession, who knows I could be fitter in a month!?!

Yesterday we had a lovely lazy Saturday. The little 2 did not fancy going to far away as it was lovely and warm. So off to the park we went. Taking about what the had been dreaming about my 10 year old son asked me " mum do you still have dreams?" "How old am" I replied? "I'm not to old to dream!!"

Then he asked "But what do you dream about"

Trying to think em, "our old house when you were small, my old house when I was growing up," em "I can't quite think off hand"..

Then he replied " is it posing, selfies and blogging idea?

Haha you have to laugh, err maybe son, but I can't remember??!!"



What I Wore~

Sunglasses ~ Primark
Jacket ~ Matalan 
T-shirt ~ Primark
Jeans ~ Firetrap
Jellies ~ Primark
Breaclet ~ c/o cutey 


So here is me, posing, selfies and blogging...

Outfit~

Scarf ~ c/o School Gate Style
Shirt ~ Primark
Cardigan ~ Primark
Jean ~ Matalan
Shoes ~ c/o Keds



With my husband having a Saturday off work today we went Shopping....Yeah...

A Quick visit to my mother-in -laws house, and a trip into Chesterfield for breakfast,  and me to buy some crafting things first.

Then off to shopping to ....Meadowhall.

Can't believe we went today, if you watched Ant and Dec's Take away show  tonight? you will have seen the super computer is going to be there on Monday giving some holiday tickets away,,,Grrr can't get Monday!!

A mad few hours around the shops, wow it is packed on Saturdays, them home for some yummy Pizza.

This time I had a plan, when it is busy, shopping with the children too and I have no plan, I end up buying nothing. So this time I had a plan, new shoes for walking miles when we go to London. Something bright, comfy and fabulous.

Converse! ...I had these in mind! After changing my mind in every shop, blue ,red, pink, light blue I ended up with these.

With 5 coloured tongues that could go with most things I own, what not to love!?!

What I Wore : Mans Shirt Restyled!!







What I wore~

Headband ~ Primark
Shirt ~ Primark (mens)
Jeans ~ Calvin Klein
Shoes ~ Irregular Choice~ Patty

I am feeling very bouncy today. Yeah I managed my first long run in months yesterday, 10 miles :) Just a matter of adding another 16 miles on now before April  =-0!!

When my son left for university he cleared out lots of old clothes, some worn, some very worn and some never worn at all. After clearing most out to the recycled bin I did save some of the nice ones to refashion into something lady like for me.

After walking around the shops I noticed lots of ladies checked shirts looked so much like mens shirts. So here we have it, da da no up-cycling need on this one.

What do you think? It looks great fastened with my chunky red belt and red pencil skirt too.

Don't ya just love Irregular Choice shoes?

I am a little obsessed with them. If money was no object I would buy most all styles!! I love their designs. Here is one of my new pairs I got for Christmas. How great that they call each one a different name too... Meet Patty.

In other news, these jeans were to big before Christmas, now I managed to just squeeze into them :(

Eek and running feels so much harder last week but I realised on Sunday I had covered 34 miles for the week, so not all was bad. I really need to stop eatting treats, one leads to another..... Bumping the miles up quickly for the weeks I missed over Christmas worked out good but tiring. I was hoping for a quick road to fitness but I guess No pain no gain!!

Linking up with Tuesdays

What I Wore : Running In The Rain...





What I wore~

T-shirt ~ H&M
Cardigan ~ Primark
Jeans ~ Primark
Shoes ~ Keds

What a cold very fresh morning it was first thing today!

20 minutes before park run (a free weekly timed race) we woke up, thrown our running clothes on and jumping into the car without even the time to make a nice cup of tea, all for the fun of running.

It was a  rush to the start but me, hubby and 10 year old son went and really we enjoyed the race once we got started. I even enjoyed the rain (the kind that wets you through) that started just near the finish line it was a welcomed at the end when I had worked hard and was really warm and tired out.

I was pleased with my time just over 26 minutes for 5k and my 10 year old son keeps doing amazing at just over 24 minutes.

After I finished the race I felt like the ready brek kid!

Remember the old advert from the 80's where he used to have a orange glow walking to school after his breakfast?

Once home and showered I got quite cold so started off wearing lots of layers at first trying to warm up. On with the sausage, bacon beans, waffles and egg breakfast, soon warmed me up though!!

Wearing some more of my sale bargains today this H&M t-shirt caught my eye straight away and a great price of £3.00 and this is one of my chunky cardigans I picked up from Primark for £5.00. I also got this in cream from another store the week before first at £7.00.

Off now to take the children scooting, only I can not move. Too much breakfast me thinks...
