This week has gone by so fast, I blame the long weekend. Anyhow, let’s talk about how boring I’ve been all week…
- I finally got around to fixing my roots and now my whole head is orange
- I cooked yesterdays dinner with Bisto gravy granules that expired in 2011
- I was pleasantly surprised by my student, she’s pretty good
- I Instagrammed too many dinners this week, but I reckon I could make a “week in dinners” post with them
- We finally managed to have half a date night
- I picked up two skirts at the secondhand store to refashion when I get the chance
- I bought three items from H&M all at a size small and they all fit different. Why?!
- It’s raining and Kris is sick with Man Flu
- We finally found some hot chocolate from the supermarket that’s pretty delicious
Last weekend I actually took two sets of outfit pictures, for the first time since mentally deciding this in January. Aside from it looking like I took my photos in the least scenic location possible, a boat lift, I have been reunited with this dress. They’ll be more on boat lifts later.
I’ve seen a little talk on around about peoples’ every day outfits and others saying how average they are and not really OOTD material. Believe me, this is not my everyday outfit. I’m too lazy wake up at 7am and put something together that doesn’t consist of jeans from the floor and another one of my tees from Primark. You know what?! We should start an OOTD revolution and just be average, although isn’t that fashionable now? Normcore anyone? Yeah, I don’t know what it is either. I should snap a week of outfits and my gosh it would be the dullest OOTW (week) you have ever seen.
About the outfit, I’m not sure if it is a shift dress, it has that kind of shape, but mainly it’s what I refer to as a little-to-tight-in-the-armpits dress. No fear, I have a cardigan of bobbles to hide my sweat patches.
Do you love my bobbles cardigan?! I do! Even if it’s hurts when I lean on things. I hope other people have as many dramas getting dressed as I do… Anyone…?
Because you were all so excited with my model village post, right?, right!, I thought I would share some more of the pictures from the miniature zoo.
Just to set the scene for you: It was the summer of ’69, Kris and I are walking hand in hand on the edge of the sand, smiling from ear to ear, taking unnecessary road trips to somewhere Kris went to 10 years ago to escape the chronic boredom that is family visits and ducking in and out of rain showers because it is the UK after all. True story.
I just love the polar bears and the penguins, they’re too cute, but I guess I’m bias as they’re my favourite animal.
The only thing about dragging out long-lost photos is my amateur photo skills. No worries, it’s not like amazing photography is one of the official blog rules. I know the rules, I went to the Twitter chat!
