What I Wore And Back To The Gym...

Hope your having a lovely Wednesday?

I have been back at the gym today after a few weeks away. First it was the school holiday keeping me from going, then last week I got a really bad cold. Today I felt like I was starting again.

Just over a mile run with my dog Mollie after the school run, felt like really hard work so I booked in 2 classes at the gym to make me exercise!!

A 45 minute body pump class and a 45 spinning class did the job!! After the bike ride home and a bar of chocolate I felt good again!

A Walk In Sherwood Forest : What I Wore..

One day last week we spent the afternoon walking around Sherwood Forest. The children were off school for half term, so keeping them occupied was obviously top priority. 

The sun was shining brightly, with a slight Autumn chill in the air. A great time to wear my new jeans and Poncho from Sainsbury's then!

Fun In Nottingham...

Last Saturday me, hubby and two youngest children all got to meet up with our eldest Sons/ little 2's Brothers in Nottingham for the day. I think study; Uni sounds like none stop parties for the first few weeks!

Youngest of the 2, sounds like he has freshers flu, or just a little horse from all the late nights out and shouting.

It was great to get to see them, things are so quiet around here since they left. I got to hear all about what they have been up to! Well I'm sure I didn't get to know everything!!

I could not resist a quick shoe picture in the Autumn fallen leaves...

Checking out my phone at the train station. Also texting a friend to tell her about knocking 4 minutes off my Parkrun time from only a few weeks ago.

So many tempting stalls on Nottingham market. Especially the sweets and cake ones. Well I did knock 4 minutes off my race!

A family selfie. We took a few, but it was hard finding a perfect picture were we are all looking at the camera and no one had their eyes closed! Daughter had to bend down to fit  me in. Wow I feel small!

My 2nd eldest telling me some of the things he has been working on at Uni.

Train home and a happy me. After seeing my sons both fit and well . Well almost as fit and well as before they left. One son has lost 5lb in weight..

What I wore:

Gillet : Republic
Blouse :Primark
Jeans : Calvin Klein
Shoes : Converse c/o JD Sports
Bag : Cath Kidston

What I Wore: Kensington Palace..

Last time we went to London we visit Kensinton Palace. 

Whenever we visit London, we know there will be miles of walking involved, so flat shoes are a must! 

I wore my favourite dress of the summer, this pink lace Kaliko dress, teamed up with my white Converse and London print Cath Kidston bag.

Not So Lazy Summer: What I Wore...

I see lots of people are getting ready for back to school but we still have 2 weeks of fun left here before my children go back to school. Busy, busy with lots more days out and nights away planned. 

Not to mention my last minute rush in getting all school uniforms brought!! Where would the fun be if I got it all early and not pulling my hair out every year as it is sold out!?!

Red Buses And Pound Shop Banta!!

Over the weekend, I had a wardrobe freshen up. Anything I had not wore for a long long time, got cleared out. At Christmas I mention I was going to try and wear my best clothes more often. Then realised I had only wore my favourite London Buses dress {which my eldest son brought me as a present} once!

Too Hot For Jumpers, Too Cold For T-shirts!!

You know when it is too hot for jumpers, and too cold for t-shirts!?!


Well that!!

It has been so mild over the last few days, not that I'm complaining, I am really hoping the cold weather stays away until we can find someone to mend our gas boiler!!

Off to do some shopping in Nottingham at the weekend I decided to wear a nice warm jumper for the mile walk to the train station as it was a bit fresh.

Only thing is the trains/shops/shopping centres are so nice and warm...

You have to keep taking the jumper off then keep putting it on again... 

What I wore~

Jumper ~ Primark
Scarf ~ c/o School Gates Style
Jeans ~ Abercrombie and Fitch
Boots ~ Barratts
Bag ~ Primark

Now the school holidays and inset days are over its back to the gym today...

I have been so lazy for the last week 4 weeks!!

How To Wear Posh Wellies : Over 40 Style...

With a heart patterned dress, a chunky warm cosy cape and some bright yellow tights...

I wore this outfit in the school holidays on a trip to Meadowhall for a meal out at Frankie and Benny's. 

Initially we planned a nice day out shopping and looking for Christmas Ideas, but unfortunately our Gas boiler has broken and it put a bit of a damper on the day and a cap on spending any money. 

This outfit cheered me up though, loving my new posh wellies and they went together great with my bright yellow tights.

The morning before our day out, a man can to give us a quote on how much it would be to fix our boiler. 

He said he couldn't mend it and we need a new boiler putting in. 

Asking how much it would cost to fit one he said 'I will pop down later with a quote'. 

Nearly a week later still no quote...

Makes me wonder~Do people ever keep their word? Who can you trust? Do people care when you have a family to keep warm and clean? Do people want work?

They have forecast -4 degrees weather this week, hopefully not or I will be walking around the house in these boots to keep warm. 

Fingers crossed we find someone decent this week, who can help..

What I Wore~

Dress ~ Primark

Cape ~ Primark

Handbag ~ Primark

Posh Wellies ~ C/o Lotus Shoes

London Street Style...

We are often hoping onto a train down to London for a night away, whenever we get the chance. Lots of walking, eatting and taking photos means comfy clothes and walk-able shoes. What shoes could be better to walk the walk in other than Converse!?! 8-12 miles of walking around streets, park and shops, we clocked up on this beautiful day. Mini me  My daughter takes after me with the love of taking photos too. She can take a great selfie!! and gets very mad if we try to hurry her up and a photo does not turn out...
