Thank you for your touching and heartfelt responses to my last post.
I get a bit nervous about posting serious stuff, but sometimes I feel the need, and I appreciate you listening/reading.
This weekend hasn't been remotely serious!
It's been food, foraging, frivolity and frockage all the way.
Although you wouldn't know it from these faces...
We were waiting at the bus stop to go out for tapas on Friday night.
To be fair, I told them not to smile. I was taking album cover shots. You know, for when they form a group and make a fortune, and keep their poor old mother in the manner to which she is unaccustomed.
(Eldest is dancing in the background, in case you are wondering what on earth she's doing.)
A mum's best accessory is her boy...
...unless it's one of her girls.
The lighting in the tapas restaurant was so dim, all the pics were fuzzy.
Here's Eldest looking miffed that she was given a children's menu...
She was somewhat mollified by the sharing platter of desserts.
Littlest and I pottered into town.
The Peace Gardens.
The Winter Gardens, Town Hall, and a funky car park!
Littlest is pattern mixing with the best of them.
Clothing - all hand-me-downs
El Naturalista ankle boots - samples, bought from a market stall for £15 (their kids' boots retail for over £90)
We browsed the vintage flea market.
The groovy 1970s children's anoraks really took me back, and I wonder how an American Girl Scout uniform made its way to Sheffield?
There was plenty to catch the eye, but I only bought this...
...just to keep the doctor away, you understand, it was a purely medicinal purchase.
We stopped off for refreshments.
Millionaire's Shortbread? But where's the millionaire?
1970s angel sleeve dress - Ebay
Denim jacket and bangles - charity shopped
Necklace and hair flower - retail (sale)
1980s boots - Second to None, Walsall
1950s tapestry bag - vintage shop, Birmingham
Linking up with NYC-bound Patti and the assembled lovelies for Visible Monday.
Hope your weekend has been a good one!
