Just a beautiful school run …

This morning there was a glorious white blanket over everything and it made my heart so happy.

The Monday morning school run was pretty chipper and we even had a little play in the garden before we left.








As I’m sure is the case for most parents in December, the days are a blur of nativities, wrapping, shopping, shows and parties. Which while super fun and exciting for the kids means Mum organisation skills are at a trembling breaking point. Throw in a few coughs and colds, the odd late night and what could only be referred to as an accountancy degree level of bank balancing and it’s no wonder December can be such a stressful month.

Today I’m taking some time to watch the girls faces in bright winter light, study their gorgeous cheeks and red noses and cherish the tiny cold hands that grip mine for security and safety. These really are the best days, they are gone too fast.

Love your little angels with all of your heart. and relish those crazy busy times.

I hope you all have a beautiful snow day or sunny day wherever you are

Hope you guys are having a beautiful weekend, just a quick outfit of the day with this spotty playsuit from Newlook.

I love love love dresses and playsuits, the ‘complete outfit in one’ idea just really appeals to me. I’ve had this playsuit for years and I think the neutral colour and pattern makes it extremely easy to wear.

A denim jacket and some white converse would look just as nice on slightly cooler days, or flats and a cardigan to be super casual.
