We headed on a holiday to the south of France this week. We stayed in a little mobile home in a lovely family run campsite and tried to cram in as much as we could in 4 days. I don't think Nancy has quite grasped the idea of a holiday yet as she kept asking "Go on holdays?" every day we were there! Nonetheless, she seemed to enjoy herself a lot and is proving to be a little trooper when travelling.

Summer is well and truly over as I'm listening to the rain outside and wearing a big cardie and I'm still feeling a bit chilly. It came and went so quickly, didn't it?! Tomorrow we're off on a little camping holiday to France to get a bit more sunshine before things really get wintery. The past week we launched the Oh Me, Oh My DIY! website, I finished up two A Little Bird Told Me projects and I've been photographing new stock for the online store. So, I'll gladly take this holiday and try my very best to unplug as much as possible.

Ice-cream and pizza are most definitely Nancy's favourite foods. My efforts of trying to get her to eat more fruit and vegetables are not really working and apples are as far as she ventures. So this week, as she's been a little under the weather and as a result, not up for dinnertime tantrums, I caved big style. We went for pizza at the start of the week and this little toddler put away half a pizza and a tub of ice-cream afterwards. Everything in moderation, eh?!

Good ol' vintage. There's not a decade that I don't love and even when I'm a little unsure, one item can change my mind completely. These early 90's high waist trousers have been hanging on a rail waiting to go up on my online store for a very long time just because I wasn't very fond of them myself. Until I tried them on last week...and now they'll never go up on the online store because I'm keeping them. They fit me perfectly, they're really comfy and I feel sorta sophisticated in them! They ain't leaving my wardrobe and we're gonna make up for all the lost time.

I just love this time of year. Still enjoying the sunshine but dreaming of the lovely autumn which is just around the corner. Most importantly, dreaming of the lovely clothes to wear in autumn. They're my favourite. I do love a pretty floral sundress but nothing beats a good vintage coat. Bring it on, September!

Lots of rainy days means lots of Peppa Pig, colouring (sometimes on ourselves), blankets and cuddles and attempting to bake! We could do with a few dry, sunny days before we really head into the autumn.
