Thankfully we only have to wait until the end of October,

Cigarette......... Pants Anyone?....

No I wouldn't be offering anyone cigarettes, thats one habit I most defiantly don't have.
But I have fell in love with what my dear mom calls cigarette pants.

Perfect for work or smart casual days when you want to steer away from the jeans.

This pair were from Sainsburys would you believe and a bargain with the extra 25% off that they have at the moment.

I shall be wearing these slots in the next few months as they are just so comfy.

Red & Black Corporate Attire....

So why should business wear be boring?
Black can be the perfect blank canvas to draw on and red for me makes the perfect accompaniment to this little black dress.

I must admit I was chuffed this dress felt a little less snug than it has over the past few months.

It means I am sure I will get a little more wear out of it as the weather cools.

Think tights might be needed to cover the pasty white legs mind!

Whats your go to happy colour?

Because red shoes make everything so much brighter

But thankfully its all been good fun so far, well most of it has.

A rain covered spiders web

Hugs to all.

Another Day, Another Dollar...

Do you find you wish your week away?
From Monday you wish for the weekend to be able to relax and unwind, but first you have to tackle the working week.

Dress - ASOS
Scarf - Thrifted
Shoes - Debenhams

Monday luckily flew by, with an early start and a very full schedule.
Which doesn't stop when you get home either in our house.

Oh well, at least today was a calmer one.
Hope you guys are all having a good week so far.

Relax.... Don't Do It....

Were you singing Frankie goes to hollywood to when you read the title?
Or was it just me?

Yesterday was a day filled with cleaning, tidying, washing and of course the dreaded ironing!

That said I still managed to pop to the local craft fair and catch up with a few friends as well as watering the lottie and the inlaws greenhouse at home.

I even managed to upload a few more items to eBay and Etsy.

As for today?

Well it most definitely be relaxing and doing as little as possible.
Except for cooking lunch that is.

Happy Sunday all.

The Good, The Bad And The Very Ugly....

It seems like forever since I did this type of post so here goes.

The Good
Family and friends

When all else seems to be falling down around your ears it tends to be the ones you love that pick you up, dust you down and remind you its not really half as bad as it seems.
And I love them loads for it.

Being thankful

For food in my belly, a roof over my head and clothes to keep me warm.
The basics are all here for me and for that I am thankful.

Wedding Bells

My niece has booked her wedding for this November, yes a rush I know but it was originally booked for this summer and was cancelled due to the death of her mother in law to be.
It will be so nice to see her tie the knot and I know it would be something her mother in law would have wanted for them both.

The Bad
Broken Car

Whilst its finally fixed and thankfully with out too huge a bill it worried us slightly to say the least.

Broken Oven

Would you believe my oven door shattered on the same day I had bad news?
Typical, eh!

Flooded Kitchen

We awoke to a soaked floor after the machine had flooded.
Thankfully it was the pipes that had blocked and hubby managed to unblock it, so no huge bill.

The Ugly
Death of a chicken

Poor thing died in its sleep.

New Job Time

Looks like its time for me to be job hunting.
Oh well a change is as good as a rest they say.
I keep smiling anyway, as it confuses the hell out of people!

Meet Me In The Sunshine...

What a beautiful day today has been.
Glorious sunshine and warmth, I could get very used to this.

Lets keep everything crossed it continues.

Not that I have been able to enjoy the weather much as I have spend most of the day in a meeting room and the rest in a car.

But even so I find that a little bit of sunshine lifts my mood tenfold.
Please can we have it for the weekend too?

We even harvest yet more veg from the allotment to go with all the rest. 
And trust me when I say we have loads, but none is being wasted.

Especially now I have a fully functioning oven again.
Why is it everything breaks when you ready don't want it too?

A Day Of Delights....

As you know last week saw us enjoying a week off.
I'd like to say we had a fabulous holiday however our car died a death on Wednesday leaving us with a very long wait to be recovered, in fact did I tell you it took us 10 hour to get home!
(not impressed at all Greenflag!)

We did have a lovely few days in Oxford at least and on Monday we also spent the day around Bridgenorth and visiting Dudmaston Estate.

The weather was stunning.

With beautiful sunshine,

 And a summer heat you don't expect in September.

It was the perfect way to finish a week off.

Tuesday, My New Monday....

Today is actually my first day back at work after a lovely week off.

And as we know all good things must come to an end and today was back to the grind stone.

That said it doesn't mean I won't do it with a smile on my face!

Absence Make The Heart Grow Fonder.....

Yes I feel off the face of the earth, well not literally thankfully.

We have just seemed to have had a rather hectic few weeks what with one thing and another.
In fact its been a crappy one and as my dear old gran used to say "If you've got nothing nice to say don't say anything at all!"
So quiet I have been.

That said never did a smile fall from my face, because grumpy people are just not attractive in any way shape or form.

It looks like many a thing my be taking a change in direction and a road less traveled often bring new sights and adventures so we shall see what it all brings.

Normal service will now resume, I hope.

And I shall be off to catch up with all the exciting thing I have missed in blog land.
