I’m here again! Wow, I keep disappearing recently, but I’ll try not to be the blogger that’s always apologising for it, so I’m not sorry because you probably didn’t really miss me or even notice I was gone! But I’ve been pretty busy again recently, fortunately doing lots of lovely things that I want to do. As I’ve mentioned before (I think), I now do lovely “old woman” things on evenings and weekends including pilates on a Monday, choir on a Tuesday and book club every few weeks. I’ve also been really lucky to have been able to see lots of friends recently, including going out for a meal with some on Friday, then meeting them again and some others in York on Saturday for a spot of shopping! And, of course, the most exciting thing: I’ve been to Disneyland Paris with my sister!! I’ve got lots of pictures that I’ll be sure to share soon, but for now I’ll just tell you that I had the most amazing time and I didn’t want to come home!
So, I’m back with an outfit post, and amazingly it’s actually on the day I wore it (although I’m now in my onesie!). This was a fairly smart version of a work outfit for me – as I’ve said before, our office is casual, so I could wear a hoodie and jeans everyday if I wanted, but being me I’ll sometimes go casual, sometimes go over the top. I decided it must be spring now so I’d go all out with the pastels. I’ve had the blouse and skirt for a couple of years now but have never paired them together before. The cardigan and skirt however I have worn together before, but not on the blog, so it’s a new outfit to all of you ;D Unfortunately the skirt doesn’t agree with sitting in an office all day – you wouldn’t believe that I actually ironed it after I came in because I knew I wanted to take pictures but it was so creased, was on the phone for 5 minutes then took these pictures and it was back to the same state it was before! The shoes are fairly new from Matalan – I’ve been wearing them a lot recently because they have a little block heel but are fine to walk in. I also bought these espadrilles at the same time to wear in Florida (which is only like 3 weeks away now!!).

In other news, I am in love with my cats still. The “fabric issue” we had in my last blog post is resolved – it wasn’t a nice job but we think we saw the fabric, and she’s absolutely fine now so all is okay! They’ve been spayed and chipped last week, so were feeling a little bit sorry for themselves with their shaved patches of fur and stitches, but we needed to get it done sooner rather than later so we can start to let them out towards summer. I don’t particularly want to because I’m scared they’ll get run away or get hurt…or hurt the birds in the garden, but then again, they are cats, so I’m sure they’ll be fine. I don’t think they’re likely to go far anyway!
What other news? It was Mothers Day here in the UK yesterday so we had both sets of parents and my sister round for a big Sunday lunch with roast pork, Yorkshire puddings, roast potatoes and veg followed by sticky toffee pudding, coffee cake and ice cream – yes, there was plenty of food! We popped round to my grandparents later in the day too where we saw my aunt, uncle and baby cousins, although only Eva is a baby now, Mollie’s nearly 3 and a half!
And aside from work, that’s my life right now! I’ll try to get more on the blog soon, but it’s likely I’m going to be busy for the next month or so with my “crazy” social life – I’ll just do what I can!

    It used to drive me nuts how sitting in the office would ‘ruin’ my outfits, you’d think designers would take that into account when they create professional clothes? That skirt looks fabulous on you regardless of the creasing.
