Sunday 30th September

Just had 1950’s pj’s altered. Bought them last year but needed new waistband. They make me feel like Doris Day “oh the Deadwood stage is a coming on over the hills ..(love that film) de..dee dee…porcupine quills..la la la…no time to delay…whip crack away…whip crack away

Thursday 27th September

I’ve been going through a Mallory Towers phase thanks to Mrs. Blyton. Used to love those books especially reading about the midnight feasts by the rockpool. Although to be honest I prefer the Chalet School series. Much more fun with all that snow.

Anyway, with my love of vintage I’ve been tracking down a few bits of memorabilia. Managed to find a typewritten list of school uniform for a girls school recently. Then I found some badges from the 50’s. One of them says “Librarian” and the other “Prefect”. I always fancied working in a library – stamping all those books and handing out fines!

7yo was enthralled by the badges and picking up the Prefect one turned to me and said:

“Ooohhh Mummy can I have the one that says perfect”……

Lol

Saturday 22nd September

A day when I was extremely organised. Not only did I go for a run, supervise 7 yo homework, get haircut, prepared casserole, made lunch, went to garden centre but I also made a rather scrummy bread pudding.

Now I love bread pudding. It takes me back to growing up in the 70’s. You don’t really see recipes for it these days. But, a few years ago I managed to find one on-line. It’s a wartime recipe and always comes out well. Now my house smells of mixed spice…..aaahhhhhhh

Tuesday 18th September

I hate the school run. It’s not the going to school it’s the coming back….with all the clutter. We have book bags, rucksack, lunch boxes, coats and jumpers. And who ends up carrying them….ME. I tend to use my little run around for the school run which is only 3 doors. I then have to heave myself as elegantly as possible into the back of the car to sort out seatbelts. My neighbour gets a real treat night and morning lol…..
