Weekend recap.....

Happy Monday!

After a busy day Friday I was delighted to have a bit of a slow one on Saturday which is always rather nice :) It was quite a mixed bag weather wise. Sunny in the morning and raining for the rest of the afternoon and night! Suffice to say we did a lot of eating and drinking to make up for that! I popped out for lunch with Laura  before the rain came down. As we were leaving the restaurant it poured and we had to make a mad dash to the car! 


Once home Laura took over the cooking for the afternoon and made lovely pasta and delicious cherry chocolate cupcakes! These kept them all happy for the rest of the day!

*****

Yesterday was a much nicer day ... see that lovely patch of blue over my house which was unfortunately quickly followed by thick grey ones also!! Sarah ran out to have a quick early morning bounce on the trampoline! Later on we took a trip to Kildare village for a stroll around. I was delighted to see French Connection and Coach have opened recently! I will be making a return for some goodies later! I had to buy some sportswear for the lads this time!


Above are  two outfits I wore over the weekend. On Saturday as it was chilly I wore linen trousers  and a blouse from M&S,and as it warmed up a bit yesterday I got to wear the floral  H&M top I bought a few weeks ago.

Hope you all have a lovely week:)

  22. I love both of these outfits. White always looks so crisp and fresh. I would wear white more often if I wasn't such a dirt magnet. You wear it well and look very lovely in your outfits.
