Hello, I hope you all had a lovely weekend, especially those that celebrated Mothering Sunday yesterday. I’ve had a lovely and very busy few days, hence my lack of posting.
On Friday we woke up to quite a lot of snow, but to my children’s disappointment, their schools remained open, despite some in the area closing. I went over to Aspire HQ, (The editor-in-chief’s dining table in a neighbouring village), and went through the editorial schedules up until November. Amazingly, we discussed bonfire night and Christmas events.
On Saturday evening, we celebrated my paternal grandparents’ 70th wedding anniversary. My grandad is 91 and my grandmother is 89. They have 6 sons, 13 grandchildren and 17 great-grandchildren with another on the way. We are a large family spread throughout the country, so it is always a celebration when we meet and this particular occasion was very special. And rather noisy.
As planned, I wore this navy and white fifties style prom dress with a rose gold sparkly wrap bracelet and floral shoes, a Valentine’s gift. The dress hangs so beautifully without creasing courtesy of the scuba fabric. The grosgrain bow at the waist adds a little cute detail and the Bardot neckline adds currency to the style, the cold shoulder being seen in abundance this season.
Love Liz x
