OK, so this is a quick dash through what I’ve been up to over the last couple of days. First off, yesterday morning I had a “meeting” (no, seriously it was) with a friend. Handily it was in a local pub across the road from school. The converse allowed me to run up to school alongside the quickest thing on two wheels (our six year old on her scooter) but at least it enabled me to test the elasticity of the Whistles tube skirt. It passed. I’m wearing it with a Jigsaw silk front top.
As soon as I was home, I ditched the skirt in favour of Topshop cut offs. Much better given it was such a warm day. I can’t remember what the eldest was doing to make me laugh – probably taking the mick in some way shape or form. After all that’s what we’re for isn’t it?! The bruised legs are as a result of visiting “go ape” last weekend. I think it’s fair to say that at times I was petrified but when there’s no other way down than to cross those wires 30ft above the ground, you just have to get on with it.
I was out working last night but this arrived whilst I was out. A lovely surprise for today! I’ve had a quick look at some of the items in it. The trousers looked as if they were more suited to the six year old demon scooter girl, than me. I must try them later to see if I can get them past my calves.
We have three children all of whom break up for the holidays on different days. One finished at lunchtime today so I squidged in a quick run before I had to collect her.
Later on today, being short of time, I reached for the nearest thing – namely the Jigsaw tencel chinos that I wore the day before yesterday and the coral marl vest top from GAP. These trousers are good on a warm day. Admittedly they’re not the most flattering but they’re great because unlike skinny jeans, the air can circulate through them. Maybe tomorrow I will have a little more time for some outfit planning!
