What I Wore...

All dressed up and nowhere to go!

Yesterday I got all dressed up to go out shopping in Nottingham, then my 2 youngest children did not want to go out for the day. With my oldest son home from Uni all they wanted to do was play games and go ro the park with "Tom Tom" as my daughter calls her brother!!

He will be ready for a break when he goes back to Uni tomorrow. None stop playing board games, football, and taking the little 2 to the park.

So we stayed in and eventually I got a bike ride with my youngest son running later on in the day.

Lazy day for me all-round but hay ho I'm not complaining :)

What I Wore~

Necklace ~ my old shop

Jacket ~ Matalan via Charity shop

Charity Shopping and Runstreak latest....

Yeh the snow has gone but boo it's been replaced with cold and wind! Not feeling the love for running yesterday I woke up with a headache and felt poorly. I decided to swap my run for a shopping trip ( but still ran later). Boy did I feel loads better afterwards.

 Not that I brought to much 2 lovely jackets from the charity shop, some bun cases, baking bit, heart trays, bake wear and a heart plate from my favourite bargain shop. Think I'm addicted to buying baking things more than shoes now. 

Cardi - Sports world
Top - Kiss collection
Jeans - Primark
Boots - F& F Tesco

My jackets I got from the charity shops, thinking of changing the buttons on the polka dot on and fancying it up somehow...

Been feeling tired, run down and lack of inspiration for running over the last few days. Think it the cold, wind and start of a cold. I didn't manage my long run this weekend, I have still been running ever day!!

Friday 6 miles run

What I Wore : Snow Week!!....

Trying to do more outfit posts again as I've not manged any for a while and so got out of doing them. This week we have had loads of snow so I'm trying to get away from throwing my jogging pant on. With going to the gym more since the children are back at school its hard work getting away from the gym wear. It's so much warmer wearing jogging pants and sweat shirts especially when its cold icy and snowing outside!!

I love this Jacket I got a few months ago from Primark it looks so stylish, really good quality and keeps you toasty and warm. First time I've brought a navy coat and it goes with more thing than I first expected ...

T-shirt - Primark few years ago
Jeans- Matalan
Boots - Barratts

One thing that as been keeping me warm at night before bed time is my onsie. I have gave a few people a laugh and a few people a frown posting my picture in  the Rock up in red for the British Heart Foundation competition. So though I would share my picture here, for the fun and hopefully make you all laugh  :)

Onesie- Primark

Meanwhile there has been lots of snow here, so snow boots a must...

 Lots of sledging...

And lots of snowballing...

Yesterday was hard work finding time for exercise as the children had a snow day off school. I manage a run to the gym and back 3 miles in the morning, half hour spinning class and a 3 miles run on the treadmill in the evening. Today they were all back to school so I did a hours spinning and a 3 miles run on the treadmill, hoping to snow don't hang around to long as I've got a marathon to train up for...

What I Wore : Out To Lunch ...

Yesterday me and my husband got to go out for lunch to at Peachy Keens in Nottingham. Its the first time we had visited this restaurant before and we loved it. All you can eat at lunch for under £7-00 and my favourite part was - all you can eat cake...

I wore my Asda dress I got from the charity shop last week,brand new, never wore and still tagged up. This bargain dress only cost £4.00 but it was a size to big. I brought it knowing that it would still fit ok with a chunky belt, arr no need for the belt going to an all you can eat buffet though..

     Dress- Adsa via charity shop
Cardigan - Primark sale
Tights - Primark
Shoes - Tesco sale

After -A very full me!!

Didn't feel like a go on the great looking swings in the market Square, before and defiantly not after a huge meal..

And here's my yummy food I had ( if you missed it yesterday ) .We only went because I seen the rather large chocolate fountain flowing in the window yesterday,typical it had run out of chocolate when we visited. Luckily there was some left in the bottom to scoop out . would have love to seen it working though...

What I Wore : Layering Up ...

Been a long time since I've done a outfit post, before Christmas it was so so cold that I've been wrapping up warm in lots of jumper and wearing my onesie once it turns dark.

My Polka dot skirt ...

Nipped into my local charity shop looking for a vintage plate stand and came out with 3 little bargain,, the polka dot dress still original price tag on too. No I didn't get a cake stand....
