Some Bits Of my Weekend...

Happy Monday everyone!
 Hope you all had a nice weekend and are ready for a new week!! Mine turned out to be a bit different to what I  had originally planned.On Friday I did a bit of shopping and bought a new blush/nude colour blouse.I also picked up a great denim jacket on sale in a local boutique. 



 Saturday we had to attend a funeral service for the mother of a work colleague of Philip's. It was a bit further to drive to than we thought, so our plans for going out that night changed a little. We ended up getting a take-out with the family when we arrived home as we were tired from driving, putting our tapas night on hold for another bit!


A  bit of country scenery on route to the funeral...It was actually one of the coldest mornings we've had in  ages with frost and ice!


Yesterday it was back to wet and windy weather, so there was nothing better to do, than stay inside, keep warm and drink  lots of tea. These yummy donuts and chocolate tart made up for the appalling weather outside!!


I had  hoped to go somewhere interesting and  take a few pictures, but had to snap a few indoors due to the rain! Here are a couple Sarah took before I ducked to the shop for the papers and the above treats yesterday morning...

I wore my new blouse with black jeans and just added a scarf with the denim jacket for a casual look!




I wasn't sure about wearing a denim jacket but I quite liked it when I put it on with the black jeans!:) Had to put up a rather large brolly when I left the house due to rain!! Looking forward to wearing these new pieces with different colour jeans and adding some bright accessories when the Spring weather arrives!!

Hope you all have a good Monday!

  4. I LOVE your outfit---really like the new pieces you bought and love it all put together! I love the bag too! Sorry your weekend turned out differently and sad about the funeral. Looks like the treats might have made up for some....I'm SO glad we don't have the Toberlone tart here or that would be a disaster! Have a wonderful Monday (even though it's half over for you by the time I get up :-))

  8. Lovely relaxed outfit - I love the scarf which really adds to it (I'm obsessed with scarves and rarely leave home without one!) I've just bought a similar nude top - says champagne on the label - with pleats down the front. Such a versatile colour. Have a great week!

  9. Really stylish! It is too often that we mums buy for our children. I had a work day at school last week and had adult clothes - not that nice as yours but other than farm clothes - on and my girls commented: Oh, you look like you used to look before moving here...
