Weekly Round-up

What a busy week.
The children and my husband have been off work/school.
But not me.
Apart from Monday when we went to Blackpool Pleasure Beach for the day.
I apologise for not visiting everyone's blogs and commenting but normal service will be resumed when my children and husband are back to work/school and I can transform this bombsite into a home again.
On Wednesday we had some drama students in the prison to prepare my writing group for a performance of monologues in December. It was great fun.
I also got the chance to complete my writing project working with young homeless people.
It was a real challenge but spending time with these young people and seeing the world from their perspective was very humbling/exasperating/exciting/depressing.
I would love to do more of this kind of work.
Their words will be illuminated on the side of the local library at the end of next month.
Here's an update of my outfits this week.
Have a wonderful weekend - think of me freezing my way through four football matches.


  1. I am in love with the striped shirt/denim mini/belt outfit- it really looks good on you!

  2. Thanks Meli - the top is a body and it keeps me extra warm!

  3. I agree, the stripes are the best! Do flattering--you look gorgeous in all the outfits, though.

  4. I meant "so," not "do.". Stupid iPhone. :)

  5. I love the 3rd outfit... you look so pretty and so relaxed.

    Have a great weekend!

  6. Love that jeans skirt! I know what you mean about the house being a bomb shell. I've been catching up on a couple weeks laundry. I got behind by working too much.

    thank you for all your kind comments!

  7. Hi there-wow, half term went too quickly, pleased to hear you made the most of it, looking so casual chic as usual too! Have a nice weekend!

  8. Welcome back to the blogging world! And enjoy NaNo from... tonight or tomorrow on, whenever you start :)

  9. Hope you've had a lovely week. Thanks for your kind words. Love those red shoes!!! Have a great weekend. Hxxx

  10. Aww I used to go to Blackpool every october half term!! Did you stay for the illuminations?

    Hope you had fun!

  12. Those wrap sweaters are great ! and I must say my fave look is the only in the jeans skirt :) I think it looks lovely.
