Weekend Recap and I Quit


I quit the 30x30 on Saturday. What did you do? I got bored and with 2 days of blazing sunshine forecast I couldn’t bear to restrict myself to just one pair of summer shoes when these might be the only hot days we get this summer (if the rest of June was anything to go by). What can I say? In the words of Kirsty MacColl, I’m an Autumn Girl and I loved doing the 30x30 in the winter time. I’ll definitely join in the next one.

Friday night the young man was out with a mate, so I did the Tesco shopping and watched lots of Gossip Girl.


Hush Puppies Odette

On Saturday I spent the morning doing chores, then we went to look at some blinds for the conservatory. It was a pretty quiet day all in all, until about 4pm when I realised I was on Sunday school duty on Sunday morning and had to plan my lesson. Fortunately I had everything I needed so any last minute shopping trips were not needed. It was warm on Saturday but cooled off late afternoon.

Sunday I got up and went to church. I knew it was going to be hot out and it was. I had a hard time choosing a dress to wear as most of my summer dresses are either strappy or sleeveless, and I feel like my shoulders should be covered in church. I took these pictures when I got home at dinner time, and almost immediately afterwards changed into shorts and a tank top, and liberally applied the sunscreen.


I spent the afternoon in the garden, apart from a brief cycle up to M&S Food for some burgers for tea. I read my book, played games on my phone and generally chilled out in the sunshine. We had a barbeque for tea and then watched some episodes of Friends.

  1. I don't blame your for quitting - with the UK summer being the way it is, you have to grab every opportunity you possibly can to wear summery clothes, because it may well be the last chance of the the year!

    I love that purple dress, looks great on you, Fi :)

  2. Thank you. And yes, this could be it for 'summer' so I'm making the most of it!

  3. I love your Sunday look - it is so flattering and pretty!

  4. LOVE that purple dress. So pretty! I haven't even attempted the 30/30. Weather is so changeable where I live.
