As you know, I think a frock is in order on most days.
Remember this beauty? It was £2 from Chesterfield flea market, what a bargain.
What I had forgotten is that although allegedly a maxi, it's not long enough on me. There's about an inch of hem I can let down but that still won't make it ankle-length on me, especially in heels.
So I wore it as it is, I rather like the midi length. The print is gorgeous, and the long sleeves make it warm enough without more layers.
Though a faux fur is always useful on a chilly winter's day.
The kids finished school today, so our morning starts will be a bit later and a bit less frantic for the next couple of weeks. It's been a really busy time at school - Christmas concerts/plays x 3, parties, discos. All for the kids, no playtime for mummy, something I intend to rectify next week!
Now you know this isn't a cutesy mummy blog. But at the risk of making the LBs hate me for ever, and making all the non-parents out there yawn, I thought I'd show you a glimpse of their Christmas plays.
Channelling the spirit of Eeyore.
While I have been known to get a little misty-eyed at seeing the kids perform (not just mine, anybody's kid will do), I have to admit I felt more like chuckling this year. Bad Mummy.
Have a superb weekend, you lovely ladies!
