Jumping For Joy

Friday's inspiration comes from none other than Pudsey Bear.

It was Children In Need Day and we were asked to wear something spotty for work.

Our ingenious IT guy had forgotten but went into the stationery cupboard and came out adorned with little orange stickers.

He looked fabulous.


As it was Friday I was jumping for joy.
In the evening we went to a Wine Tasting Quiz Night in aid of the school PTA.
It was a night of singing, dancing, drinking and quizzes.
I don't know why my husband's best friend decided it would be a good idea to go and remind the headmaster that he was in the same class as him and my husband at school.
The very polite but sligthly tipsy head came over to our table and you could see the look of horror.
"So when.... "
And the time that....
was frequently followed by "you knew and I didn't" had me in stitches.
Thankfully, an even more drunken mum grabbed him and whisked him away for a dance.
I would love to be a fly on the staffroom wall on Monday!
Talking ow which I am linking this to Visible Monday.
Today I wore:
Shoes - Clarks
Dress - Matalan
Cardigan - Boden



  1. with this fantastic dress i would also jump for joy! i love it!
    your outfits this week are also marvellous, you nearly had a "blue" week ;-)
    have a nice weekend!

  2. I'm in love with the dots and the sweater. I like the way you tied it.

  3. I simply adore the polka dots! And love seeing all your looks together. Have a wonderful weekend :)

  4. Great polka dots, you look quite happy today.


  5. Funny story! I love the last picture of you jumping for joy...those are the best aren't they; the fun ones?

  6. What a unique take on supporting a charity! We do jeans days for charity all the time, but it's a little less exciting when you're allowed to wear jeans pretty much any time. The polka dots make it all the more fun!

  7. You are much more chic than Pudsey! Love your jumping for joy photo, I don't think I would actually leave the ground if I tried it, you look like you're floating in the air!
    I might have to suggest a Wine Tasting evening to our PTA. Or a School Disco for adults! Sounds great! xxxx

  8. Lovely spotty dress! My word you can jump high!!! Xx

  9. Amazing dress and great pictures!

  10. That's a dress to jump for joy in, for sure - you look wonderful! Funny stories too, and thanks for sharing with Visible Monday. Happy thanksgiving!

  11. Gorgeous, gorgeous outfit! You look like a prima ballerina :)

  12. Love the dress with the pretty lavender shirt tied over it! ;)

  13. You are making those pieces work for you in such fun ways. I enjoy my visits to your blog, and learn something or am inspired every time. Thanks for taking the time to do this!
