Hello Friday....

Happy Friday everyone!

It's that lovely time of week again and what a week it was ! I think our weather is definitely gone a bit crazy , with high winds and monsoon rain at night then back to warm and muggy conditions during the day! Even my poor doggy is totally fed up with this weather and I for one don't blame her! On a more serious note there has been severe flooding in certain areas and I'm thankful my mother escaped the worst of it down in Cork. Some people only 2 km away from her were not so lucky!!


Anyhow as it's Friday I have had a lovely long breakfast time with Laura again... this is becoming quite a habit now that her day off is Friday for the time being. Fresh flowers and candles add to the relaxing atmosphere. It is also Sarah's last day at school so the teacher's card and present had to be organised.

Yesterday I made a mad dash out first thing to the Zara sale. After much strolling in and out of the fitting rooms with items, I literally got dizzy in the finish trying them on (hadn't eaten a proper brekkie in my haste to get there !) I settled for one top and decided I needed a coffee break to revive me. 
I then scooted around the corner to Penneys and picked up another few bits and this large gold and cream necklace .


 I'm wearing the necklace today with a cream vest and a sand colour shirt I bought last year in H&M. I am also delighted to say I will be heading out for a meal on Sunday night with my coffee morning buddies, so I'm planning on wearing the new Zara mink top ( pictured above ) with white skinny jeans and heels. We are going to a local restaurant for dinner then on for a few drinks afterwards! Thank god we have no school run on Monday:)

I hope you all have a great weekend :)
