27th July - summer feet and sandals

Sunday - Summer feet
Here are my fet which are pedicured regularly this summer as a treat to myself and these sandals from Clarks that I just love!  Went to buy some black ones same style last week and they are sold out everywhere, even online :(

Today I treated myself to these gorgeous suede sandals from M&S for our cruise at Christmas and for special dressy occasions at home!


28th July - Summer shopping

This was my shopping trolley last week as I am back in the swing of things entertaining and SW properly. I never left but had put on 8 lbs since April and I now mean to loose this as quick as possible. I have persuaded Peter to come along as there are 6 men so he didn't feel too uncomfortable
Mon - Summer shopping
Plenty of fruit veg and low fat cheese and yoghurts etc

Had a lovely a lovely morning with my friend Jen and we went to a fairly new M&S for coffee and of course several items just fell in my basket!!...and we only went for coffee LOL!!
I also bought a pair of black peg leg? trousers in linen ! They have turn ups, does this mean peg leg? Off to get  a black and white skirt I saw online , length 30, they didn't have that length in the store!

25th July - Family and Fav summer outfit

Yesterday we had Xanthe again as she had a playgroup leavers party in the morning. She had planned to wear her fairy outfit but then changed her mind!! She dressed up in the afternoon.and I took photos for her Mum as they are doing another summer hols book with daily photos.
Family - our youngest grandchild I see the most!.

Favourite summer outfit - this summer until the heatwave I have worn these shirt tops, rather too large now but bought in April as the buttoned down the front and easy for all my hospital appointment and loose for comfort after the op and during radiotherapy.  Not sure if I will keep them next year or take them in to make them smaller!!

Of course here I am with Viv in June!

23rd July - Sky summer view

A view 2 days ago of the sun setting on a blue sky after another very hot day. Very unusual to see a blue sky at sunset!!
We are actually having a heatwave in the UK and they say it will go on into August too :)
Today I will show you that loom bands that are all the rage over the UK these past 2 months are here in Hastings too. Zachary was buying these bands in June and made me a bracelet on Xanthe's birthday. I now have a pink one too :)
