The Perfect Package..

As part of my summer swop I received a fabulous package from the lovely Hazel over at World of Joy.

Not only was it wrapped beautifully, it also came with a lovely note.

It was a shame to unwrap them.

Inside each beautifully wrapped parcel was a perfect summer item.

I love the lip butter, it tastes divine.
My keys were very quickly added to the beautifully made key fob.

And this necklace has been worn none stop!
I can't thank you enough Hazel.

We Interrupt This Programme.....

Did you wonder where I'd gone?

We are on our jollies in France.
But don't worry I shall be back before you know it.

Stunning Don't You Know.....

Don't you just love all the stylish blogs you read with stunning photos of ladies looking made up and not a hair out of place.

In reality, for me at least, thats just not how I look.
Well not everyday at least, I like to think I look presentable most days and especially for work.

My days off ,such as Sundays, are spent in comfy clothes that I don't mind getting muddy, or tearing on chicken wire as I clean out the chicken run or rabbit hutch or garden at the allotment.
(Yes I know, I lead a very glamorous life indeed)

Top - Daughters
Cami - Next Thrifted
Skirt - Gap (old)

I will even wear underwear as outerwear, like this Next cami top that I thrifted from a local charity shop.

It's much nicer than a boring strappy top.

Unruly fringe and specs instead of contact lenses.

And as for not a hair out of place....
Obviously mine has just been scrapped up and tied back
No make up in sight.

Excuse the swollen belly!

But I am happy doing my mucky chores and am always back to my made up neat self on the next work day.
Well everyones allowed an off day.

Don't Brick Me In...

Finally we are back to the normality that is life.
Well Andy is, I'm yet to get that far.

I'm still doing reduced hours which are plenty.
Especially as I am trying to get ready for our holidays.

No rest for the wicked eh and I must have been very wicked.
Bet get this derrière in gear otherwise we will be going away without any clothes or food!

Jazz Tune Or Two, An Annoyance For You...

Well I have to admit I had a great weekend.
But how quickly they pass you bye!

Robbie was as A...Ma...Zing as ever.
(I am very bias)
Hubby said he was very self indulgent, which of course he was but as with all his shows he really is very much the entertainer.
I have been singing ever since hence I have been very annoying to everyone.

Yesterday was a quiet day with hubby and the youngest having to work until just after midnight.

So although we spent the day together it was a quietist evening.
Well I say quiet, the eldest paid me a visit to tell me all about her holiday.
She really is so funny with the things she's done, its lovely as she has such a happy outlook on life.

I'm pleased today is over, I'm not enjoying that first day back to work feeling.
But I am on holiday count down so I can just about cope.

Hope you all had a great weekend.

June Round Up...

I've not done too well with outfit posts in past months but I do like to review what it was I actually wore.

 And it always amazes me how old faithfuls appear every time.
Even though I have a wardrobe and more, full of clothes.

 Time to reshuffle and add the summer clothes.
Yes I really am only just doing that.

Well at least its a job I can do whilst I recover from last night.
We had a great time and Robbie was brilliant.

And thankfully for the family I have no voice today from all that singing.

No wonder they are all looking so happy.

Jump On Board....

Tonight hubby and I are off to see Robbie Williams.

Tickets were part of my christmas present and if I'm honest I had almost forgotten about it.

And whilst he might not be everyones cup of tea he is mine.
So please exude me while I go and gaze a while like a silly teenager and sing my heart out.
