I can hardly believe it’s September. These five months have been the most difficult and turbulent of my life and I feel like I’ve been catapulted to here from March.
It’s all rather a blur.
Like many women, I feel so much better about myself if I make an effort with my clothes, my make-up and my hair. So it’s reassuring to look back over my blog and see from my summer outfit posts that I continued to enjoy getting dressed up, celebrating and sharing very happy times with friends and family. My holiday in Porto Santo and Sally’s wedding were the highlights of my summer.
These are my favourite outfits. The rest are here on Pinterest.

And so, as we enter Autumn, we enter a new phase in our lives, because today my son started secondary school. An all boys grammar which I believe will challenge him, stretch him and enrich him. He has the most wonderful male role models in my father and my brothers, but now he lives with just my daughter and me so I think it’s the perfect balance. He’s eleven and has had to grow up a lot. He’s the self-proclaimed “man of the house” and I couldn’t be prouder. Despite everything, he continued to shine at school and on the football pitch. His resilience and maturity go way beyond his years.
But, he’ll always be my baby so the tears which I managed to contain until he set off with his dear friend, were those of utter pride tinged with a little sadness because I know things will never quite be the same again.
