A Woman's Work Is Never Done

I spend 2-3 days working from home.
I love the quiet of the house - just me and the empty house and the dog.
I am a fairly well disciplined person and have little problem motivating myself to work but I do allow myself "Chore Breaks".
Today it was sunny but breezy - perfect for drying my family's endless washing.
One of my favourite scents in the whole world is in sun-dried sheets.
I can always guarantee happy dreams when I go to bed with the smell of Spring or Summer.
That aroma is right at the top of my list along with the scent of newborn babies and barbecues.

This skirt was a bargain find from my local British Heart Foundation (BHF)charity store.
It was £2.50 and comes from H & M.
It is a little on the short side for this time of year but will be perfect with flip flops in the summer.
I had a closet clearout a few weeks ago and sent most of my stuff to the BHF store - I was so thrilled to see many of the items hanging on the rails when I went in the other day.
Did anyone try The Secret texts yesterday?

I sent another one and first rumblings are that it will happen.
I'll keep you posted.
Today I wore:
Shoes - Clarks
Skirt - H & M
Body - Dorothy Perkins
Cardigan - Primark


  1. I love your skirt, it's gorgeous. And the cardi you wore yesterday is absolutely perfect as well!
    On another note, fancy your wishes coming true! I'm so glad that you & your family are doing well. Might as well try texting, and see what happens!

  2. I love this skirt with striped top! :)
    Great choice!

  3. I love that skirt! I forgot to send my text yesterday but I will not let it slide today.

  5. I love how you mixed the patterns really cute. That color blue is so pretty.
