Hello, I hope you all had a lovely Easter weekend.
My children and I stayed Sunday night at my parents’ home and it feels like I’ve been away on a mini holiday. My mum’s cooking on Sunday and lunch out yesterday meant I had a welcome break from cooking and I’m now looking forward to spending some time with my children during their school holiday, interspersed of course with work and blogging
Thank you very very much to all of you who voted for me in the Aspire Style blogger challenge. I’m absolutely thrilled to say that I won!

In the challenge I wore this Jolie Moi vintage style floral midi skirt with a simple long-sleeved black top, a bright yellow necklace and orange shoes. Despite the decidedly un-springlike weather on Easter Sunday I wore it with a soft pink top, an aqua short-sleeved cardigan, (that I first wore almost 13 years ago at my brother’s wedding), and my beyond gorgeous peachy pink brogues. The blustery conditions afforded me a Marilyn moment and showed the fullness of the skirt off beautifully.
My mum brought these daffodils on Saturday when we celebrated my daughter’s birthday. They are so cheerful and for me they epitomise the optimism and promise of the new season.
