This week marks half term and Friday was report writing inset, so to be fair it was a pretty tedious day...
Aforementioned, Friday I wrote reports. How people sit at a desk and type all day I really have no idea. Part of what I love about my job, besides the people I work with and the kids of course, is that I spend a very limited time staring at a screen. And when I do it's usually when I'm creating fun, colourful resources which my creative side secretly rather enjoys.
I watched the dreamy Leo in Catch Me if You Can to keep me sane and it did help.
I treated myself to dungarees when I'd finished, I've been looking for so long I finally found a pair I like in H&M although had to buy a size 14 just to ensure a loose fit. Shopping in there never fails to make me feel I have gained about 3 dress sizes. Sigh. But they are cute! I hold to style them like this:
Josh treated me to dinner out and after my tedious day I was extremely grateful! We went to Las Iguanas for some Brazilian food, the closest to World Cup fever I hope to get.
I forgot to photograph my outfit thanks to the monotony of most of the day, but wore this outfit again:
Me Made pinafore New Look 6886 adaptation
Me Made stripe tee McCalls 5470
Me Made mustard snood
Saturday I had a lovely long lie in and blogged from my bed, ahhh :) Nothing like a lazy lie in to kick off a half term holiday. I am working on a potentially massive project at the moment, creating bridesmaids dresses for my friends wedding, but nothing is set in stone yet, we are still weighing up the options.
However, this Saturday I made a start at the first stitch in the first trial run, recreating this lovely dress from Pinterest:
I'm using a New Look pattern (6723) and this took up much of Saturday afternoon! I'm a far more pedantic seamstress when sewing with someone else in mind.
Josh and I rounded up the day with a delicious dinner at Carluccios followed by drinks at our friends c&ns. Lovely Saturday night.
