Mothering Sunday

Sunday, 14 March 2010

Sorry to be pedantic but it's NOT Mother's Day, it's Mothering Sunday.
Anyway, today has been all about pleasing this fantastic woman:

Today being a celebratory sort of day, I've been in the kitchen whipping up an enormous roast dinner and a delicious polenta and apple cake. I've been seriously accident prone though! I've ended up with a big burn on my thumb and have dropped everything it was possible to drop. Glace cherries have been leaping to their death from the top shelf of the cupboard and hitting me in the head and the clanging and banging and "Oh for ***** sake"-ing drifting through to the rest of the house reached record levels. Everything turned out very nicely in the end though so all the chaos was worth it.

And today's outfit? Well I couldn't resist wearing my new skirt and many of the other new things I've bought recently that just happen to go quite well with it. Check out the new pose!

Skirt & earrings - Florence & Fred @ Tesco
Tights, headband & blue beads - Dorothy Perkins
Top - Marks & Spencer
Blue initial necklace - Sunday Girl Accessories

Hope you're all having a lovely weekend. I'm going for a nap, I've eaten too much cake!
