Wednesday 30/12/09

Just having a chilling out day today. I am not a great fan of leggings and a top but given the amount of dripping on toast I've eaten anything I wear just has to be stretchy!!!

Review of 2009

Here are some of my favourite outfits from 2009.








August - nothing fashion wise because of the move to my beautiful new house!





This is the Christmas haul - 3 pairs of shoes, one pair of boots, 5 jumper dresses and a pair of jeans (and another skirt not photographed!

Just a quick preview of things to come in Jan.

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.

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!

Sunday 9/11/09 - Discount

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.

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.
