Jumping into Winter

Hello there,

I'm not quite sure where I am with the weather at the moment - it got cold - I bought a few new jumpers and hats - now it's warm again. Grr!

Anyway, despite the unseasonably warm weather, I have a new selection of knitwear to show you. Which is just as well really as I got a bit too enthusiastic sorting out clothes for charity and gave away loads - does anyone else do that?

First up hats. I have a problem with hats - I love them. I seem to have hats in every colour and shape. These ones are all from Primark and at £2 - £3.50 each, it doesn't feel like too much of a bad obsession....

Then the jumpers, first up is a daisy print one from George at Asda. Not especially seasonal but oh so comfy! It's quite lightweight so will be a good one for early Spring wear as well.

The next jumper - I have to admit was bought months ago in the Marks & Spencer sale. I had almost forgotten about it. Very warm - but a bit awkward when eating (those cuffs!).

I love stars, I seem to have a ridiculous amount of tops with stars on, so why not get one more? This one is from Simply Be.

Finally in the this mega jumper haul, two goodies from Primark. I saw this jumper in grey first and then a few weeks later in a plum colour. It seemed a shame not to have both.

There you have it, new jumpers for Winter.

And remember - everything looks better with a hat on!

A September and October Instagram round up

Hello there,

It's been a busy few months. We travelled to parts of the UK we'd never been to before, met Stormtroopers and wandered through Bayeux under a spooky orange sky.

Here's a few photos of the last couple of months:

Castles, we did a few....

I learnt that selfies on a windy day in front of Bamburgh Castle are never a good idea. I also learnt that I'm not that found of steep stairs in York with not many handrails. And Alnwick Castle was as beautiful as I was hoping for.

I met all sort of people at Defcon VI in Totton

We spent a glorious week exploring Normandy:
More castles, more scary staircases and beautiful beaches.

Hope you enjoyed my round up. It's the countdown to Christmas now (#nevertooearly) - time for all those Christmas jumpers, silly hats and endless adverts for sofas and perfumes.

Thanks for reading
