I’ve been looking forward to Easter for ages. Not only do we get the long weekend off work (I haven’t popped up to the office once – honest), both Roy and the kids are at home for the rest of these week too. I will no doubt have to nip off and do some work at some point but overall everything feels very relaxed.
Relaxed though it has been so far we’ve definitely been busy!
My grown-up dining room finally called time on the on-going fight against being transformed into a playroom with a dining table…
The Easter Bunny came and brought all manner of goodies (less chocolate and more creative fun – and Club Penguin for Kieran).
Then I took delivery of a Singer sewing machine, a gorgeous clock and ornament for just £15 to add to my vintage home / styling project.
Roy has been very busy too – his is renovating the workshop / garage to create a Man Den. Think beer fridge, dartboard and somewhere he can chop, saw and create without my threatening him with violence for sawing in the kitchen again. We found some more vintage items hidden away in the walls too which was a bonus.
Quite a busy weekend so far! What have you been up to?
On Tuesday it will be my birthday and I will be entering a whole new decade age-wise (yes people I will be twenty *cough*). In honour of this occasion I was sent out with my youngest sister along with my folks to shop until I dropped. It was quite an experience (I wasn’t confused as being my sister’s mother this time though which was a bonus) and we laughed like mini hyenas for the most of the day.
Setting out for pre-birthday shopping I imagined some spiky high heels, bling, a completely unpractical top and what not hitting my basket. Instead the bulk of my purchases included a gilet from BHS, some special jeans from SimplyBe that hide many sins and of course some kick arse waist-high control pants. I have to give special mention to the control pants. They were from Primark (the only thing in there that fits me other than the gloves), cost £5 each and I’m not convinced that they weren’t designed by NASA. Fabulous tummy-sucky-in things.
So there you go, no sparkly heels, no bling (saying that I did get a lovely early present from Lauren, my youngest sister which were some gorgeous silver earrings), and no flashy tops. I am greeting my next shiny new decade with a lifted bum, sucked in tummy, a comfy gilet and can’t wait!
