Going out for lunch with the hubs! Without kids! Woo hoo! Means I can order what I like without thinking whether I need to cater for the small people and what they might want to eat off my plate. Also means I don't need to pack two Nintendo DS's in my handbag, no wipes and I don't need to walk like a hunchback due to the weight of my bag.

Oasis Fake Fur Gilet (Eons old)

Today was also one of the few days we've had where the weather has been sufficiently kind to grant me some sunlight and let me take some outfit shots. I hate being cold and as we are still in January, I put an old fake fur gilet on under my (unlined) Mango Kate coat/jacket to keep me warm. Stuck on the H&M pointys and good to go.
I took some shots inside and then twisted the Grumps' arm to take a couple of shots of me outside. He did mutter something about whether I was going to ever use any of the shots he took of me (I think that was a wee dig) but as we are still having only a modicum of success, I think it's good to always have some backups ;o) However, these are the best two he's taken - he's improving.
He'll only take pictures if I stand stock still and smile/smirk.
And that's him stomping off after he's done his photographer duties! Hee Hee.
Stomp, stomp, stomp!
There's a reason why he's called the Grumps you know!
Anyway, I had a lovely lunch :o)
Mum to Ben & George, married to the Grumps, living in suburbia, somewhere in the north of England.
