Things have been a little quiet around here this week. I forget how much builds up at work when I have a couple of weeks off. Throw in a couple of late trains back from London and a Governors meeting. I’ve not had the time to focus on writing. Historically I would have beaten myself up about this but I’m trying to give myself a break. There are only so many hours in the day and this is meant to be my happy place!
On my 40 before 40 list I talked about wanting to try and find a new style. Move away a bit from my mummy clothes – anyone else live in skinnies and tees? So I’ve subscribed to Look. It’s weekly and thin – so I don’t feel like I have to make time to read it. It gives me an idea of what’s on the high street without me having to trawl websites. Which I don’t have time for! It’s also giving me an indication of what I like. What I am drawn to week after week seems to be flowers, jump suits and bright colours. Despite the majority of my wardrobe being monotone. So I treated myself to a flowery jumpsuit from Zara. It’s perfect for today’s predicted 23 degrees and smart enough for a day of internal meetings at work. Totally not what I would normally wear…. but it’s so comfortable and could well become one of my go to pieces this Summer.
I watched the boys bond in Great Yarmouth last weekend. I wrote all about it in my Siblings Post. The green wall was perfect for photos. Kipper enjoying playing on the steps and Monkey was a very attentive looking after his little brother.
I made a little video of our adventure to Norfolk last weekend with Haven:
Still sticking to the theme of what the kids wore, Monkey has been wearing his new shoes from Bobux. I’ve spoken about how much I love the brand before. Their new Spring Summer collection has lots of desirable styles for the kids. Monkey chose these extremely funky trainer like shoes called Aktiv Spekkel Printed Smoke casual shoes. They were really put through their paces while we were on Easter break and have stood up really well to all the rough and tumble. And because there are no laces he can put them on unaided.
