A Change Is As Good As A Rest x

Goodness me, is it really that long since I last posted?  It's not that I've been away.  Au contraire, I've been here doing normal me, mummy and wifey things.  Since the blondies went back to school two weeks ago, I've been quite happy pottering, sprucing and preparing my little nest ready for the colder weather.  I've also had a stinky head cold and spluttery cough for the last few days so have been feeling a bit bleurgh.

Anyway, one of my favourite Cath Kidston summer dresses got perhaps it's last 2010 outing yesterday ...

Mum and I went to London for the day on the train.  It was wonderfully warm and sunny.  We browsed around Camden Market (you'd love the vintage clothes shops) and then sat with a huuuge glass of wine in Covent Garden and indulged in another of my favourite pastimes - people-watching.

I was a very good girl and, other than a couple of little birthday pressies, only had a teeny fritter on some new fridge magnets from Paperchase ...

Other than slightly tired feet and a croaky voice from too much talking and laughing, I feel positively recharged today.

Must pop off to the Post Office now to post a few parcels.  I'm heaping a lot of my clothes on eBay in an attempt to justify buying a couple of new items for the winter get a little nearer my goal of a capsule wardrobe! :-)


PS.  Thanks so much for your fab book suggestions - I'll keep you posted! x


  1. Lovely post, heather. I love the CK dress! I've given you a blog award so please pop over to my blog, lovely. Lynda xx

  2. The dress and leggings is a great look. I love the idea of a capsule wardrobe, but sadly fear that it will forever be just that - an idea!xx

  3. Love those magnets. So adorable. Fab dress too. :)

  4. Loving those kitty magnets - well done on being so restrained whilst on a shopping day out!!! x

  5. How lovely to have a day with your Mum. Wish I was a bit nearer to London - can't do it for a day trip!
    Love the dress - I would wear it in winter too with boots, tights and cardi - then your wardrobe can be even MORE capsule!!! x

  6. I love the dress - and you have a lovely figure to put in it!


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. Anyone ever told you that you're a peach? xx
