On Monday it was the start of a new school term. Big Smile.
This meant that I was kids free for several hours and I had some much needed time to crack on with the housey things which have been haunting me since the Christmas Day bomb.
Boden Must Have Jumper (SS12)
New Look Stripey Top (SS12)
New Look Jeans (Sister Cast Offs)
Primark Mens Fleece Scarf (old)
So nothing here to rock your boat. Sorry. This is just me pootling around the house. I've not even got a pretty or exciting scarf on - just a little £1 grey fleece scarf I picked up from Primark years ago and which I can loop round my neck to keep out the chill. The beauty of a little scarf like this though is that it doesn't get in your way. The ends don't trail in the dishwasher or get caught in the fridge - it just does its job i.e. it keeps your neck warm.
The jeans are a New Look pair which my sister threw at me saying "These will fit you - you've got a big bum!" And the grey Boden Must Have jumper was bought last summer. It's nice. It's grey. I don't know what else I can say about it apart from ........ it's nice, it's grey!
Oh yes. And a pair of Uggy slippers! I should be shot and cast out of blogsphere just for featuring my slippers shouldn't I?
Costco Kirkland Sheepskin Boots (AW2011)
And let's not forget .... my new bag!
Poundland Laundry Bag (£1)
Somehow I don't see you all beating down the doors at Poundland to get yourself one of these despite its bargainous price. But it goes well with the outfit doesn't it? Big day of laundry and ironing as you can tell ... this is real life.
Just wondering - on the days when you are wearing nothing special - do you not bother to post or do you wait until you have something a little "more exciting" on? Sometimes I just like to see people looking really normal and telling it like it is - makes me feel I'm in good company :o)
