my fashionable summer holiday wardrobe

Pretty much I've been dressed as Peppermint Patty, Charlie Brown's friend, for the last month or so.

I'm actually not joking:

I've had four pairs of shorts ( not short), some cotton shirts, t-shirts and two pairs of sandals and two pairs of thongs in high rotation. Also channeling George from the Famous Five, possibly. Dork.

I go back to work tomorrow. I love my job and there have been some big changes at work while I've been away so I'm looking forward to being back in the thick of it.

I finished dealing with the paper mountain and the kids' rooms: such a relief they're done. There are a few more jobs around the house to finish,  re organisation for year ahead, but as J doesn't go back to school for another 10 days or so I'm on track. Mother's New Year starts that day.

We're off to the beach soon, for fish and chips and ginger beer and I can't think of a nicer way to wind up my summer holiday.


  1. You're much more glamourous than Peppermint Patty! She doesn't paint her toenails. I've painted mine a different colour every week of my summer holidays (I'm a teacher). All I have to do is look down at my feet to remember to relax, it's holidays. (I go au naturale during term time so I don't set a bad example)

    1. Yes, I've done red and dark green this hols, don't bother over winter though!
