Paloma Faith I ain't

Phew! I am far too old for parties.
Eldest had her 19th which was lovely, I started cleaning at mid-day and at mid-night I sat down.  As I was flagging at about 10pm I switched from Pimm's (well, blag Pimm's called Austin's from Aldi) to wine.
My Mum and Auntie twerked away and did suggestive door dancing, everyone twerks these days it seems, although since I learned the 'slut drop' at Christmas and buggered my knee I have kept away from saucy dancing altogether (I also once battered my pelvis on a bouncy castle, trying to get through a high 'window' that led to a slide, couldn't walk for a few days)


Typical birthday Mum shot, double chin and menstrual swelling - sweet!

Paloma was my inspiration for this outfit


Birthday Girl, My Mum and me awww

Of course, the most wonderful girls, I have missed  a few (sorry).  One very special one is going to Nottingham, we are going to miss her.

Grim, grim grim
I eventually took 2 days to 'get over it', I was blooming knackered!



The school run started today, honestly, I don't stop!
well, I say that
but I am a little on the lazy/idle side
so there have been essential nana naps and such
ya know, to help
oh, and coffee


I have fixed my chazza bag from Wales,
  as I destroy bag handles I have tried to give her a little support, I have installed firm gusseting for her,
I do know the importance of a firm gusset



I have to go my lovelies
I start training today, 
I need to get ready, and look fancy

see you soon

    1. Senior twerking is possibly the most disturbing/hilarious thing I have ever seen, my Mum and Aunt lack rhythm and movement (Ha, they are going to kill me!!) xx

  4. It isn't a party unless there is at least a little bit of twerking going on! Your little dresses are so adorable. Oh Mama! Don't they grow up fast???

  7. You might not be Paloma Faith, but you are a woman after my own heart - a firm gusset, naps, coffee, erotic dancing when under the influence, a self-confessed idler, and a sufferer after over-indulgence, sounds just like me! You looked gorgeous at the party, and your big girl is beautiful, just like her mama.
    Well done on being the Hostess with the Mostest, for fixing your gusset, and good luck with your training. xxxxx
