Hey ho, now I've recovered, how about about some witterings?
A rare appearance from yours truly in an outfit picture or three (look away now if you're of a nervous disposition).
Cardigan - online shop (can't remember price or website), Flower (Dorothy Perkins I think, about £5 3 or 4 years ago), 60s jumpsuit (ebay, 99p), earrings (Claire's Accessories sale, £1) Chair (£6.51, ebay)
Time for some silly posing! Boots (ebay £10)
I'm seriously in love with this jumpsuit - it's not specifically a maternity one, but it just seems to fit really well and it's so comfy, plus it was only 99p. Sometimes being short has it's advantages - the seller described it as best suited to someone under 5'3" (I'm 5'4" but it's perfect on me) and there were no other bids.
I had a day to myself yesterday as Mr R&B and Baby Bird went back to visit his family, so I headed down to the Redfest Flea Market in the morning and a jumble in the afternoon. The flea market was a good mix, several vintage sellers, but also some crafts, food and a lovely florist, who I chatted to for ages. The prices were really reasonable, most of the clothes were under £20. Of course I had to bring a few choice pieces home with me, which I'll share soon when they've been washed and dried.
The jumble was slightly less successful - the clothes rummaging was nigh on impossible as I'm just not in a condition to barge at the moment! Mind you, I did get a few bits from hovering, again to be shown post-washing.
Today was not very exciting, but I made a cake this afternoon, inspired by some of the treats on offer at the flea market yesterday. Just a basic (but yummy), Victoria Sponge. Just goes to show what a few strawberries and whipped cream can do! I should point out that I don't make these every day, but it was a bit of a special occasion yesterday as it was our 5th wedding annniversary.
Won't you have a slice?
Of course, now I NEED a proper cake slice and one of those fancy covered cake stands!
