Our husband has promised the children that they can have some fish. After our escapades with Bob, Dora and Merlin nearly two years ago (which you can read about here in my post entitled I blame Harvey Nichols), there was no way that I was going down that route again.
The children initially tried it on with me but I pointed them in the direction of my husband, telling them that he was a better bet as he was “as soft as sh-te” to which our son responded “Nice use of a metaphor Mum.” I’m pleased to hear that he’s listening at school and can recognise metaphors in every day life. (OK, in his Mum’s bad language.)
As I have mentioned before, I have taken to wearing flats a lot of the time now which means that on the occasions that I don’t have to walk far, I wear heels – which is why I wore them to go and see the dentist today. Arguably it’s slight overkill but being a friend of mine, and liking clothes and shoes, I knew that they wouldn’t be lost on her and it can’t be right that they should just sit in the wardrobe gathering dust.
So, today I wore grey skinny Cos jeans, Jigsaw shoe boots, Zara top, Oasis cardigan, Hobbs necklace and Mulberry handbag. The Zara top is in store but I can’t seem to find it on-line which is a shame because it’s quite nice – silky front with fine knitted long sleeves in pale pink with a slightly longer back – great for bum coverage! If I find it some time soon I will provide a link.
I’m off to Leeds tomorrow for my bi-annual shopping trip with a friend of mine so I shall report back on what I find. I can’t wait to get wet in the Leeds rain!
