Keeping it real like Mimi

Happy Friday! I hope you are well and wonderful!

It's a quick one from me, it's a whirl here, I'm about to go food shopping, I have to make the tea, the children are talking (they have 2 volumes, loud or very loud) I am in the middle of 2 conversations, Mr F has tried to resuscitate the car again, I keep losing my train of thought.  All normal here.  
I'm decorating all weekend too. 
Anyhoo, today I tried something different.

1 Kimono 
1 Maxi Dress
not my maxi dress, it's the Eldest's
(jersey material, stretchy stretchy)
no pouff 
I'm feeling the 20's at the moment
especially more so when I look at Desiree
I have been captured 

Keeping it real

4 bites
I am not a fan

Languishing and wafting around

reality; 'quick! there's no-one here, take a picture'

The Eldest's new hat
it's leopard print and it fits my unusually large head
a hat
that fits

Missy is discussing her approaching birthday
and complaining she is hungry
must dash

Have an awesome weekend!!!
P.S thank you for all your lovely squishy comments on my last post too!
you all rock my world!!!!!!!!!!



  1. You both look so good and maxis are a good aternative to vintage dresses. Desiree is top. ast year around this time I discovered her blog and I was fascinated. And she writes good ,too.

  2. Love that ensemble! Looks like a fab day out and about for you two!

  3. Oh My Goodness... Your rose photo looks like it could be one in our yard. I did a Rose Post today!!

    Love love love you in that black dress... So becoming and slimming.... It's great with the white and also with that hat....

    Your eldest daughter is gorgeous--like her Mom.
    P.S. We have Krispy Kreme here... I love their original ones (warmed in the microwave) --with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top.. BUT-if I eat one of them (with the ice cream) I couldn't eat anything else for about 4 days!!!!! SO many calories!!! ha

  4. yeah ... the asian style blouse , jacket thingy is wonderful ...
    never had krispy kreme ... the american husband told me about their donuts ... maybe he could bring some home ...

  5. Have a nice weekend! What a lovely kimono and hat! :) I love Greggs btw, creamy donuts are the best!

  6. You look faaaaaahhbulous dahlink! That hat is so so so you! You must appropriate it. And the dress. All of it! LOVE!
    Have a wonderful weekend. xoxoxoxo

  7. You and the Eldest are the Cutest! That must be the name of your blog. :) Though Peaches McGinty is quite adorable too. LOve your 20s vibe here, Sandra - so playful and elegant. I too have a large head and rare hats look right on me. Or that's what I think. :)

  9. I love your fantastic dress! Kisses.

  10. This is what I have missed out on, raiding a daughters wardrobe!! Bugger having sons!! LOVE your daughters shoes, absolutely fricken gorgeous. The black with the white floaty top is perfect on you, and a perfectly good day you had too!! Have a fab weekend. We hit 18* today and it is supposed to be Winter?

  11. Love that 20's vibe - with that cute bob hairstyle, the long floaty look really suits you. I am digging that leopard hat too. There is nothing that can't be improved with a bit of leopard print. XXX

  12. You look gorgeous in that maxi/kimono ensemble ... just gorgeous :0)

  13. That kimono, maxi, hat combination is bloody gorgeous, you look like Liz Taylor at her most glamorous! Oldest is an absolute beauty (just like her mum) her hair is stunning! xxxxx

  14. Sandra when I read your posts I feel like I'm there with you! Your daughters have the coolest mum, which I'd love to be for my daughter too! You must wear more often that kimono, you look fab!! And so does your daughter, so beautiful!
