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!

On Sunday we had a fun afternoon in Nottingham. What to wear!?!  My best dress?. ..

A nice little break from puppy duties. I left my eldest son in charge of keeping Mollie entertained and off with the youngest to to find some fun in Nottingham.

‘You know when someone you do not even know, says something to you and afterwards you keep thinking of funny/sarcastic replies you should have said back at the time?’

Well that!!…

We started out our journey by picking some pop up for our train ride. A woman in the Pound shop said to me:

  “You don’t work for British Transport do you?” 

I just looked at her for a few seconds to see if she was having a bit of banta or she really ment it! 

Still don’t know as she looked so serious!!

Thoughts of saying ‘It’s Cath Kidston Darling’came to mind 😉

I wasn’t sure she could take it back though.

What I wore~

  • Dress : Cath Kidston
  • Shoes : New Look
  • Bag : Cath Kidston

I just love the vintage London buses Cath Kidston print!!

We had lots of fun in Nottingham, playing on the free ping pong table in the station.

So much fun trying to hit the ping pong ball and let alone keep it on the table!!

How was your weekend?

    Love the dress and shoes – they're gorgeous! It is funny working out what would have been a great answer. I think it would be better if everyone at British Transport was a stylish as you! I saw this on the Elegantly Dressed and Stylish link-up. Did you see the other blogger that also works for British Transport? Hee, hee. Have a great week!

    And I hear you re the wanting to think of witty replies. Some utter dick on the train today saw I had a massive long item to carry and deliberately shut the train doors as I was struggling up to get off the train! I was so cross with him!x
