In The Navy...
Yesterday was a bit of a write off because I was incredibly tired! It was raining full on all night and it was very very loud – we woke up to a blanket of snow on the hills (which was pretty, but I’d way rather get some sleep!!). So, even though it’s Autumn, Winter has truly arrived and its been cold and wet and interspersed with hail, sleet and snow since the weekend!
This little dress is one I got at market day at the start of the year! It’s very very cute and has little bows that tie up through the bodice, but because its cold I really need to wrap up with a jacket as well as a thermal underneath. Has anyone else noticed that tights don’t actually keep you that warm? I have two pairs of black woolen tights that are super snuggly, but your average run of the mill tights are not warm at all!! I’m wearing navy tights here (to go with the colour theme) and I know my little legs were feeling the breeze!
Here it is without the jacket (but still with the thermal, the dress has short sleeves) but David had just told me that he had made me a cat shaped pancake, so sorry for the weird expression.
Here is the cat shaped pancake – CUTE!!
Yesterday I arrived home to the sweetest little package ever!! It was from the lovely Mervat and contained a notebook, amazingly scented soap and candle, a bracelet and a big flower brooch. Thank you so much!! It was part of Pay it forward and she made my day – now it’s my turn to pass on the kindness – and I’m going to start with blog awards!!
I received a few blog awards eons ago that I never got round to passing on, I hope I got them all! I had to scroll through my blog comments and try to catch them, so if you gave me an award and its not here, I’m sorry! I think I had a few more than three, but that’s all I could spot!!
The first is from Love<3fashion, she gave me the One Lovely Blog award - "You are to pass this award on to 15 people whose blogs you think are really lovely and who are new to you. This helps newcomers also. If you do not have 15 new to you, just choose those you think have lovely blogs. This award is yours to take and post on your side bar with the name of the giver beneath. Remember, I think you are wonderful!"
The second is from Baby Sloth and is the Friends award - "These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbon of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award.
The third is from Noir Girl who Splashed me - The Splash award is given to alluring, amusing, bewitching, impressive, and inspiring blogs. When you receive this award, you must:
1. Put the logo on your blog/post.
2. Nominate up to 9 blogs which allure, amuse, bewitch, impress or inspire you.
3. Be sure to link to your nominees within your post.
4. Let them know that they have been splashed by commenting on their blog.
5. Remember to link to the person from whom you received your Splash award.
Now, I’m going to cheat and bend the rules (because I’m a rebel like that!!) and I’m going to move the awards around in a circle, I love all these blogs and think they all deserve awards so Love Fashion is getting the Friends award, Baby Sloth gets the Splashed award, Noir Girl gets the One Lovely blog award and because Mervat was so lovely I’m giving her all three!! Yay!
I also hate leaving people out of these things, so if you are reading my blog right now then you deserve a little something too - so I’m splashing you all!
Have a lovely day,
