I love getting up on a Monday morning (wait a minute!) when Liverpool have won on the weekend. It makes my first day back at work after the weekend a whole lot easier! But helping the children paint historical Tudor figures to scale was all but fun, well for the kids it was, but not for me after having to clean the paint palettes afterwards! But getting emails saying my order were ready to be picked up for New Look certainly brightened the end of my day. But me being me, this happened...

Lookbook: Pink Jumper

I've said this before, I'm always wanting to buy jumpers. I seem to be slightly obsessed with searching for jumpers or anything that will keep my arms and chest remotely warm. This winter I have been determined to stock up on jumpers, I don’t fancy wanting to wear my work jumpers on the weekend! So I was scrolling through ASOS and I found this cute and simple blush pink jumper which was £8 in the sale.

Non Lazy Days

I'm writing this on a Sunday morning lying on my bed, with a cup of Pukka detox tea on my bedside table. Notice how I say 'lying on my bed' and not 'lying in my bed'?

Some people's ideas of a Sunday morning is lounging about their pyjamas with a cuppa in their bed, under the duvet then getting up when the waft of roast beef and gravy ascends upstairs and makes you jump out of bed to go and eat your roast dinner. For me, that's not an ideal Sunday morning. I'm probably one of only a few people who doesn't like staying in their pyjamas all day. To me, I just feel really dirty and unclean, I feel like I haven't had a bath in days if I stay in my 'Dreamer' pyjamas from Asda.

My god getting up at 6am was bloody hard today. Well, waking up after 8:30am for the last two weeks, it was always going to be a struggle. But it was lovely to see the people I work. After saying "Happy New Year" and "Did you have a nice Christmas?" god knows how many times, it was time to greet the kids and ask them all about their Christmases. Remember the days when we used to ask for a bike, the newest Barbie or, for me, a Jacqueline Wilson book? Nowadays it's an IPhone, tablet or Fitbit. How times have changed.
