A Catch Up With My Boys..

A Catch Up With My Boys at Uni: what a lovely day.
Polka dots and Converse 2 of my favourite things to wear!! Polka dots make me pop and Converse are so comfortable to wear.

A few weeks ago when it was the half term school holidays, me the hubby and 2 youngest kids had a lovely day out visiting our eldest 2 sons who are both at the same Uni, for a catch-up! We had not seen them both since September, so we were due to a catch-up. It felt like a lot longer than that though.

Everyone is so busy at the minute so it was lovely finding a few hours where we could all make it.

We all meet up for some breakfast, yum!! When you have had an all you can eat buffet breakfast all you want to do after is take a nice walk. The kids directed us all into their local woods to burn some calories off!

It is a real shame we could not take Mollie the Collie as she would have loved it in these woods. It would have meant leaving her in the car when we had breakfast though and that would not have been fair.

What I Wore | Dress: F & F | Cardigan: Dorothy Perkins | Shoes: Converse | Bag: Primark |

When I was younger I was one of the tallest in the class, now look at me!! Only my daughter to go by me now, then I will be the smallest in the family!

Love Autumn walks in the woods. Kicking the fallen crispy leaves around.

Especially loving walks with all my family πŸ™‚

I can not wait for another catch up with my boys.

They are so busy now, the next time we see them it will be Christmas.

So much planning to be done.
