I found her! April 21, 2010

Posted by sunflower71 in about me.

I’ve known her for quiet a while and have always admired her style.  Ever since she could express herself she has shown a strong will especially with regards to what she was to wear and especially what she didn’t want to wear.  Today we spent some unplanned time together and ended up shopping. Finally there is a splash of colour on the hangers in my closet.

Thank you, my dear personal shopper!  For when the next trip?

With the mercury column rising the need for some new clothes fit for these warmer daysn rises too.  So today, after postponing this trip by many days, I hit the shops….

But, my oh my how I felt lost.  I think this is the first time I felt the need for a personal shopper.  I wanted to get some new colours and styles but somehow I couldn’t put together an outfit that works for me.  I tried what must be a few hundred different items but I still ended up getting only basics in the usual basic colours : white, beige, black, navy, ie no lovely prints…..which was what I really wanted but didn’t feel bold enough for.

Back home unpacking some hours later I couldn’t help looking longlingly at the two pretty summer dresses I got The Princess and The Cherub…between them they have every single colour of the rainbow!

Maybe next time I’ll be bolder or luckier…..we’ll see.

It never rains but it pours!

In the short space of 5 days I got my second chance for some me time. Today mum offerred to baby sit TS who is still unwell while I headed for the commercial town where I knew I’d find what me and my princesses need very urgently for  next weekends’ parties.  See… we’re invited to a wedding (without kids…yippie…cause baby sitting issorted out already) and a baptism ceremony (obviously the kids are invited). 

So I got myself a pretty pair of peep toe shoes and a small matching bag that will accompany me in my newly acquired black-and-white jacket and dress that I just love (it cost more than I afford but it’s beautiful and I look good in it).  So after years of wearing maternity wear, tops that permit me to breast feed descretely, ie wide tops, and in-between clothes, ie those that are a size or 2 bigger than what I was pre kids, I finally have arrived back at the original pre first baby weight and this will be the first time that I’ll dress up and show off!

Ok…this is starting to sound like someone who’s been in jail or something…so I’ll stop the sillyness here and wish myself and all of you (the one or two that will or will not read this) “good night”.
