Embracing the warmer weather, little by little….

OK, I’m going to come clean – I’ve been wearing pretty much the same outfit every day for two weeks, as it’s that long since no.1 child started with a horrendous virus. The day that she went back to school, no. 2 child was struck down.  No. 3 has a nasty cold so she too could be off and no. 1 has also picked it up – so we’re a pretty grubby infected household at the moment. You know that things are bad when you get the time to put all the aprons and running stuff on a hot wash, just to get them super clean. And when you get around to getting up the step ladder to clean out the top of your husband’s wardrobe – well, that says it all!


Today’s outfit was positively haute couture! Being slightly warmer, when I went to get the youngest from school, I wore my All Saint’s trench plus an animal scarf which is graded in colour and which a lovely friend gave me for Christmas – both for the first time. I had been saving the silk scarf for a warmer day – and today was the day. Warmer weather allowed me to go sockless too. Despite everything, the warm sunshine made me really happy!


I thought that I would share with you this Mother’s Day present from our eldest. As soon as she started to feel slightly better, she started to make these origami flowers, which took her hours and hours. On each piece of paper she wrote the same word over and over again before making it into a flower. A pressie that costs so little in terms of money but which is priceless. I know that it’s a bit late in coming but I hope that everyone had a lovely Mother’s Day – or just a lovely sunny Sunday.
