I don't usually do hats because I have a tiny head and they look ridiculous but this one actually fits ok and doesn't look too stupid so thought I'd give it a whirl. Off to hunt out christmas play costumes for my boys in Matalan this morning.
No post yesterday, was manically busy. However I did get one shot to show what the evil wind and rain did to my hair....
And this is why it is likely to be tied up until Summer is here once more!!
Helping out at school again today in Year 1 this time so more school appropriate clothing. I completely surprised myself by actually enjoying it!! I tried Shoegal's tip of combining turquoise and red as acxcent colours. Think I like it.
Yesterday I was just in painting clothes because I was redecorating the downstairs loo and kitchen. Today I had a child-free day. It was fab, had a lovely lunch and game of Scrabble with my mate, then shopping after. Lovely :-)
I have barely been in today. Helping out at nursery this morning, more therapeutic laminating, then off to a friends for lunch. Got back just in time to leave and pick up the boys! Finally sat down for five minutes before heading out again to the post office. Might have to sneak in a cuppa before I go out again. I'm definitely flagging.
Comfy and casual today. I love how just putting on heels instead of flats makes it look like you've made an effort even when you really haven't. I am not convinced about these crops over the boots - the boots have too much detailing for it really. Might try with my plain black ones which I still haven't thrown out even though they let water in!
Well, I did think about posting my pictures today but then I looked at myself and reconsidered. I may be an honest blogger like Shoegal but really you've all seen jeans, crocs and a hoodie before.
Have spent the day getting the discount codes to work on the website and various other technical glitches which needed sorting. I am pleased to say that School Gate Chic readers can enjoy a 10% discount off at Esme-Grace again, using the discount code SGC10. Enjoy!
Another busy day today but really just want to sit around drinking tea and nattering. Fortunately that's exactly what I plan to do this afternoon :-) Off to my Mums for her birthday celebrations after school. So please pray for a clear run on the M4 small tired children stuck in traffic is no fun for anyone.
I have done my first morning helping out at the nursery class and I actually really enjoyed it. It was lovely seeing Pippa playing and interacting with the other kids. Anyway, secretly I find guillotining and laminating therapeutic!
Well the boys are back at school. Life is a bit calmer again. Pips is back tomorrow and it is my first day as a parent helper at the school. I need to find school appropriate clothes for Tuesday mornings and soon Thursdays as well as I start helping at the boys school in a couple of weeks.
Caught on camera at karaoke last night! I am away from home at the moment so not able to take pics so easily. My friend took this one of me singing so thought it would do the job for now. Had a fab night and got loads of songs in :-)
I am completely wrecked. Middle son was up all night ill and in my bed meaning yet another night of no sleep. I have a million things I need to do today and can't do any of them because the kids are too sick to take out. Can someone please take over for me? I need a break.
