Happy New Year

I love the beginning of September.
When I was at school I loved the smell of a new exercise book and the blank pages were a challenge - I couldn't wait to fill them.
My children will all return to school this week and we all have some "New Year's Resolutions."
I don't want to list them here but they all involve (I hope) building a happier, more harmonious home.
I know September will be a very busy and challenging month but there are some great things to look forward to.
On September 14th my eldest son will be 18 and we have a James Bond theme party planned for the end of September.
And on September 20th I will be godmother to my nephew, Seth, who was born in May - this will give me a chance to wear my lovely new dress.
What plans have you in store for September?

I wore:
Shoes - Clarks
Skirt - Tesco
T-shirt - Primark


  1. Wow, we never got excercise books when I was growing up. I've never even heard of that ever in the states. Boy, we've been jipped...lol

    Happy Birthday to your son! September is a wonderful month for me as well...my husband and I celebrate our anniversary and my mom's birthday on the 23rd:)

  2. Oh, forgot to mention that you're wearing my favorite skirt! Love how that looks on you.

  3. when I was a kid I loved opening all the new stuff, packing my backpack, and picking out my outfit for the first day of school. I'm too poor at the moment to return to college, which upsets me quite a bit. I was frankly jealous of the woman at the laudrymatt who was doing her homework...

  4. Thanks for the link to the plum chutney! Looks like September is great month for you. My daughter will be 10 on the 29th but we haven't decided yet what to do for her. She would like a swimming party so maybe we will do that! You have to post some pictures of the James Bond themed party. Sounds very exciting. Ciao. A.

  5. Happy Birthday to your son! There was a James Bond movie marathon we watched at the hospital this weekend. My son concluded that it's not good to be James Bond's girlfriend LOL!

  6. Sounds like you have a busy but fun month coming up. Love those shoes.


  7. That is a great skirt! I love it. A James Bond party sounds like so much fun!!! :D For me, this September will mark my and my husband's second anniversary. So we'll be celebrating at a nice quiet restaurant :).

  8. WOW! I luv this LOOK it's solely TRES CHIC!!!
    What a FAB skirt and to top it off with that TO DIE for top is sooo STYLISH!
    OMG! A JAMES BOND party how EXCITING, just think 18 years old but no matter how old he gets, he will always be your BABY!!!:)

  9. Have a fabulous month my dear and I love your outfit, grey is such a stylish neutral colour for autumn!

  10. Love that skirt..and I love how you are embracing fun t-shirts to wear w/them! Awesome!

    And of course...HAPPY BIRTHDAY to your son.
    James, James Bond sounds fab...mmmmm I have a few months, maybe I will have to plan something like this..Great idea. My son is a musician, so maybe we will have a Beatles party? things to think about....

  11. cute outfit! love that skirt and the red details here!

  12. Oh wow!~ This is SUCH a great look on you!~

  13. I used to count the years in 'school years' instead of the gregorian calendar.I think I just stoped doing that a couple of years ago.
    I loved the beginning of classes and had my new year resolutions as well.
    Hope yours go well.

  14. Wonderful, wonderful summery of the year's project! I really enjoyed reading this conclusion to your prior blog and congratulations on being featured in the local paper! How fun!
