The kids have their half term holiday this week, which means I do too!
Oh it has been good to have no particular schedule, and a lovely lie-in or several.
Mind you, today was designated the day of the Big Clear Up.
My mum and sister are visiting tomorrow.
I only ever get the urge to tidy up when visitors are due, it makes me see the mess with fresh and frankly appalled eyes...
Denim blazer - gift from Fiona
Top, hat, belt, bangles and necklace - charity shopped
1970s maxi skirt - flea market
Boots - Ebay
Tapestry tote bag - made it myself
There are always cats around when I take my photos. Charlie was chasing leaves and playing with his buddy from next door, Caspar. Jess (or The Queen, as she is known in this house) was less than impressed with the young upstart.
The dreadful storms which hit other parts of the country very hard didn't have much impact here, thank goodness.
Nail varnish - a gift from Emma Kate
I'll be taking my hat along to Judith's next Hat Attack on November 1st.
And I'm meeting up with some delicious blogger friends on Friday too, I'm very excited!
But before that, there's a day of family shenanigans tomorrow, the Ladies Purse will be storming to victory in the local pub quiz (yeah, right... Serial Losers, we should be called), and there is the small matter of Hallowe'en to consider...
Here's Eldest before she went out for a spooky walk in Derbyshire with the Scouts this evening.
Zombie School Girl - she raided my wig and beret collection, and perfected the dead-eyed look rather well, I thought.
And a propos of absolutely nothing - the kids have been playing this song constantly, and it's really rather good.
Just shows that sometimes TV talent shows turn up someone with some, err, talent.
