... has been quite lovely. I had a lazy morning watching TV at the boys while he was at work, sent in some final bits for my (hopefully) new home, I put the deposit down on Wednesday so I'll know by then if it's mine or not. I got a bit crafty and re-framed some memories from the last few weeks, oh how I love rotating my art prints I have a silly big collection. My favourite one is a pressed flower from our weekend camping and a little love note. 
While I was at work Toby txt me to let me know he has booked train tickets to London for my birthday so we are going to get drunk in the Natural History Museum on the 16th August. I'm so happy I get to go there it's my favourite place on earth and they are showing the most intact mammoth uncovered to date until the 3rd September so I'll get to see her! I've been raving about it since May!

Jeans: Monki    T-shirt: Joe Forever
Please ignore the super creased t-shirt! This is today's OOTD, admittedly jeans were a huge mistake with it being 28degrees out at the moment. Today I went for a flat viewing with my mom and I think I'm gonna take it! It's a really good size, all modern and laminated flooring throughout, a little garden space for puss, around the corner from work and a back alley way that's actually big enough for my monster of a bike! Exciting new home times!

A photo an hour(ish)

So this is my photo an hour (ish) as I've had the day off and it was too lovely outside to be sat in sewing so here it is! My morning started off by saying goodbye to Toby for the day, and after a cup of tea at 6.30am I was not ready to sleep so I watched Peter Pan, my number one nostalgia movie!

It's quite a bad photo but my freckles have come out really well this year due to being in the sun so much, my hands are covered in what my momma calls my beauty dots :)

Apparently this little puss is becoming quite the adventurer and spends loads of time in the social club that backs onto our garden! I wish where I worked had a pub cat...

I ventured to my parents today for a catch up and spent a long time reading feminist erotica in the garden, this writer is incredible if your haven't read her work already I highly recommend it!

Me and momma bear took a little shopping trip and I got this b-e-a-utiful new shade of lipstick! 

My little bean is doing a lot better now he is on his meds but his tummy is so swollen and he is giving signs that his kidneys are failing, we will know more when he has another vet appointment next week.

Myself and my mom got bored so she coloured my hair for me. I'm back to outrageously bright orange summer hair like I had this time last year :) I'm thinking of doing a re-cap of the last year as a kind of diary entry because I've been thinking a lot about it lately and how much of a roller coaster it's been!

Hiccup is saving me from a terrible hangover today! 
Tonight is date night and because we are both rather poor this month we are doing a kids date and going to the cinema to see How to train your dragon. I can't wait! It's one of my favourite films, so much so I named my cat after the lead character! Toby is going to cook dinner and we are going to drink a little and have a wonderful time.

I'm so excited!

This weekend...

A lot of my organs still hurt from this weekend. I'm getting too old for late nights, no sleep, and work the next day! Loads of friends were back from various places around the world, it was a wonderful 3 nights of catching up and drinking way too much Jack. 

This photo is my new favourite of us. I never thought I'd have you in my life again and to have had you for a year now is still like a dream.

My new hand picked flowers for this week.

Today is new lingerie day. I ordered this set from Playful Promises a few days ago and have been dying to receive them!
The style is lovely, I know these types of bra can be found everywhere now but this one is really well made and fits like a dream, the underwear on the other hand I'm a little disappointed with. The store uses mixed sizing, so I went for a 6-8 knowing they would be a little lose, the waist is huge and therefore sits really funny but the lower half that covers my bum is so tight. Now I know I've got some junk in my trunk but not enough to have ever had issues with jeans or underwear before. Stood up I look like I'm wearing granny panties so when I have some spare time I'm going to do some alterations- also I wish on the website that it had mentioned they are crotchless as that was a tad embarrassing opening my new parcel in front of my parents.....

I love this outfit, I got this skirt for a wonderful £10 in the Topshop online sale, the adorable pineapple socks are from primark, the blue velvet crop is from Forever 21 from when I went to the States last year and the rad sunglasses are Ebay.
For some reason summer brings out my hipster side, I've been living in heart shaped sunglasses and bright mis-matching clothes. Such a nice change from winter when I wear all black and leather.

Today is day 3 of healthy new me, yesterday I took myself for a 6mile bike ride to my parents, ate 3 good, healthy meals and was in bed at a reasonable hour! Today am going food shopping (oh the joys) and for a big run before work tonight. 
Go team health!
