They were right!!


Lots of wonderful things to see.

The waterfall and Peacocks being my favourite...

I'm a True Believer...

Oh my the weather is so unsettled at the minute. 

First its lovely, then its torrential rain, now its just being so dull and overcast. 

Come on summer!! 

Show an appearance!!

We did get a lovely day last week and this is what I wore on the school run. 

Having to walk a 3 miles round trip (morning and afternoon) I do like to have comfy shoes on. 

These Nike trainer boots my husband brought me a few weeks back are perfect for the job.

In other news ~ 

What happens when it is a nice day and one of your favourite feel good songs starts playing on you CD player? 

 Sing at the top of your voice, of course!?!

Check first to see if the windows are closed! 


 Make sure their is no window clearer going up the ladder to clean next doors windows!!

Whoops FAILED again!

Think he was and looking around wondering where that horrible noise was coming!?!

Oh well, we get more embarrassing as we get older, don't we?

Or is it just me?

Might as well embrace it ;)

What I wore~

Top ~ Primark
Skirt ~ Pinched off my mum ( always great when your mum buys something new and it is to small!!:))
Trainer/boots ~ Nike

Now I leave you with the song I was singing to. 

Turn the volume up, open the window and sing to the next door neighbours window cleaner!?!

Share-In- Style : Red

Wow apart from the last 2 days the weather has been gorgeous. We have been very spoilt. The children have been none stop on the trampoline and enjoying the warm weather. Now with plans to get the garden straight and lawn mowed this weekend it has been raining, typical!!

I love this maxi dress.

 I picked it up in the January sales from Bhs and have been patiently waiting for the summer to wear it.

It goes perfectly with this lovely red beaded scarf necklace . 

I teamed it up with cute flat ballet shoes to go out on a lovely shopping trip with all the children.


Dress ~ Bhs
Scarf necklace ~ c/o Bhs

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 ..


Scarf ~ Primark {new love this, can you see the little pink flamingos?}

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

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?


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!?!

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???

Reflections In My Sunglasses...

It has been an amazing sunny day yesterday and I managed to get loads of washing done. ( Can you see the washing in my sunglasses in my garden selfie? lol)

So board doing housework we got dressed up and had a nice long walk to the train station. We had lots of fun going to Nottingham, around the shops then meeting my husband from work.

First up on our walk to the train station we played a little game. We gave each other 5 clues to guess a famous person. Me up first-
  1. He is green...
  2. He loves a pig...
  3. He has been kidnapped and a bad person in his place... 
  4. We had our photo took in Meadowhall outside the pictures with him yesterday...
  5. He loves the pig so so much!!
My son chirps up I guested it... its daddy!!! What who loves a pig? gee thanks!!

Haha.. not even a clue it was Kermit the frog!!

On the train we had at run for a table, just managed to get it before 2 lads..yeah ... we won... a man on the next seat , laughed and said bad look boys...

Then all the way my kid ripped me with the jokes ~

My mums so ugly she ...

My mums so big she...

My mums so thick she...

Making lots of silly but some quite cleaver jokes up,,, all in fun, I'm sure they watch to much tv!!

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!?!
