Lazy Days Of Summer...

Top ~ Matalan 

Shoes ~ Primark

Skirt ~ Primark

Necklace ~ My old shop
Happy Sunday...

Making the most of the lazy summer holidays and looking forward to getting back into a routine again. 

I can not remember the last time I went to the gym!! 

With a week and half left of the holidays I think the children are secretly looking forward to school!?! 

My youngest son goes off to big school! 

Eek, when did he grow up!?! 

Do you ever stop worrying about them!?! 

After his 2 day school visit before the summer, left him going to hospital with a badly cut knee after jumping a fence. 

My oldest son is now recovering well from the 2nd round of penicillin for tonsillitis after 3 weeks of summer in bed resting and not being able to eat with pain. 

So lots of fun plans for the last week of the holidays~

Which involves eatting, days out and our 18th wedding Anniversary coming up in 6 days. 

I am so looking forward to be going to see British Athletics today. Big thanks to Sainsbury's. We all love athletics in our house and so excited to be invited to the Birmingham Grand Prix. Watch this space later for some cool athletic news, pictures and a surprise meet and greet they have planned for me :)

Have a great week ahead everyone...

What are your plans for the last week off before school starts again?

A perfect SummerDay Is When The Sun Is Shining..


A perfect summer day is when the sun is shining, the breeze is blowing, the birds are singing, and the lawn mower is broken. ~James Dent





Thankfully it is a lovely day again today....

I am not liking the flash floods, thunder and lightning!!

No way of getting out on the bikes with the children yesterday!!

 How amazing would it be to go!?!

Shopping, site-seeing and amazing food...

Not that I could eat to much but I would take a look at the sweet challenges.

Diners, huge pancakes and shopping for Jimmy Choo shoes!!

Dream ,dream , dream... Zzzzzzzzzz...

Nearest thing I will get to NYC at the minute is with this Primark T-shirt!!

Haha...


My husband always tells me 'he will take me one day'..

Maybe one year when the children are older ...

I may train up for the New York Marathon..

2 things at once to tick off the bucket list...


Back to earth with a bang and reality..

All the exercise I have been doing over the last few week have finally caught up with me. 

So a nice easy week for me and back on it Monday...

Just before the children break up for summer on Wednesday...

Holiday Outfits...


Hi everyone, how is your week going?

Good I hope?

Even though it was cloudy most of our time away, I still enjoyed having fun dressing up. I never take too many clothes for myself when we have a break. The kids take so much. Which means less space for me mum and dad.

 I do like to to take my shoes with me though. 

Heels for night time, check! Comfy flats for day, check! Beach shoes, check! Canvas pumps, check! And trainer for my runs, check! They all have to fit in the suitcase.


I am loving my new belt.

What do you think?

My husband bought it for his holidays, forgetting to try it on....

Aww no, his loss is my gain!! :):)


First up my new H&M cotton polka dot shirt I bought with my birthday money. 

Love this, it is so stylish and comfy to wear. 

My Selfridge's jeans seam to be getting a bigger hole on the knee every time I wear them!

All teamed up with some new red and purple Nike boots my husband treated me too.


But first, let us take a selfie!!

Top ~ F and F



Outfit~

Shirt ~ F&F
Jeggings ~ Primark
Trainers ~ Nike


Jumpsuit ~ Republic
Shoes ~ Primark

Now off to see if I can find any more holiday outfit snaps...

Vintage Style With A Modern Twist...


Good morning everyone :)

I am up with the birds tweeting this morning and ready to go!!

You know when you have so much to do, and do not know where to start? well today is that day!!


I wore this outfit on a rainy day at the weekend.

We had a few hours spare so went to Medowhall shopping centre in Sheffield.

You know when you don't have money and see lots of things you want to buy? then when you have birthday money, burning a hole in your pocket but can not spend it?

Well that is what kind of day I had.

And to top things off I tried to buy a few pretty silver rings from a well known jewellery shop the day after. Another location but the staff was to busy chatting with friends to serve me, even though I had money in my hand!! So I had to walk out empty handed.

So I still have my birthday money to spend.

Now torn new rings ot new shoes?


I wore this dress on Saturday, as my husband mention it in a conversation.

He spotted a picture on Facebook and said-

"I've not seen you wear this dress in a while"

"You look lovely in this"

So off I toddled upstairs and went to pop it one ..


Outfit~

Scarf ~ Primark {new love this, can you see the little pink flamingos?}
Vintage style dress ~ c/o Sainsburys {about a year and half ago}
Shoes ~ Converse


Remember me saying I have so much to do today want to get done.

Well here goes~

Get children up, feed, lunch boxes done, to school.
Paint the downstairs toilet.
Gloss the coat rack.
Gloss the shoe rack.
Paint ceiling.
Paint the hallway.
Gloss the hallway.
Paint ceiling.
Get 2 more loads of washing done.
Get rest yesterdays washing dry {did 5 loads as its been raining a week}.
Go shopping { 3 miles walk, round trip } to buy some cool bits for down stairs toilet {wash basket, accessories ect}.
Have a look for something to spend my birthday money on.
Catch up with blog comments.
Build a trampoline.
Go a run.
Make dinner for everyone.
Visit parents.
Do an outfit post.
Do 99% of this list!

And all with cold water, mind you. 

Having to boil the kettle every time we want some hot water.

As the boiler man is still so called mending my boiler, charging me lots of money 4 weeks after I phoned him.

So hopeful he will arrive with a part he has been waiting 2 weeks for today too!?!

I can but hope..


Now to pop my old clothes on and start on the decorating...

Think I will pass on posting photos of these though, haha...

Have a good day :)

What are your plans today?

We all should be outside enjoying the sunshine really, it is beautiful outside today...

My Birthday Over For Another Year...


Wow this weekend has just flown by!!

Yesterday I turned another year older!

Had too much good food and was spoilt to bits with a lovely afternoon shopping in Meadowhall.

Always a good idea to wear flat shoes when we go on a shopping trip with the kids though ...

Shame my fun day turned to a tunnel vision migraine at the end so I had to save my box of Kripy Kreme doughnuts till today..

I brought some lovely clothes (will share later in the week) and now have enough money to buy some fabulous shoes.

Only enough for 1 decent pair though, so should I go with a heeled pair of Irregular Choice or a cool pair of trainers, not ones to run in, cool ones to wear with jeans?

That is the question?

Or wait till the summer sales and buy both?


Outfit~

Dress ~ Primark (few years ago)
Shoes ~ c/o Cheeky Shoes (original ones)

Off to enjoy the sunshine now and do a spot of gardening .. How quickly has the grass grown!?!
