Pasties and puppies

It feels like about a million years ago since I took these photos, on Mother's Day.  My life feels like a constant rollercoaster of either lulling, slow moments - weeks of quiet times, books and early nights, and then weeks of whipping around, not having time to breathe or reflect; long days at work, evening commitments, endless to-do lists and late nights.  Even reading that sentence back makes me feel tired.  I've spoken a lot about stress and pressure in my life so I'm not going to labour the topic again except to say please excuse the fact that I'm posting these photos a while after the day itself.  This weekend I went away to a National Trust cottage to stay with 11 other bloggers and eat lots of cake and not having internet or phone signal was both blissful and slightly alarming at the same time!  It really was a lovely weekend and I'll be posting some photos this week.  It was a four hour drive back from Derby this afternoon which has knackered both me and the dog (who was kindly also invited!) and so after posting this I'll be taking myself off to bed with a stack of magazines (please don't look at the timestamp on this post and judge me!)

So yes... back to the photos.  On Mother's Day I went back to my parents' and treated my Mum to the opportunity to cook me lunch.  Only kidding, I got her a card and a bracelet too! You may not know but I was born in Cornwall and we lived there until I was 7.  In that time, amongst other things, my Mum learned how to make the perfect pasty, and she kindly whipped up a huge batch and served them with wine (ale for the boys) and lashings of Tommy K.  


Of course I couldn't miss out on the opportunity to squeeze in a few cuddles with Henry, their schnoodle puppy.  Bodhi is still utterly overexcited to be around Henry, to the point where they both did excited little wees when they saw each other (my Mum is going through kitchen roll like nobody's business).


I thought I'd take a quick snap of my outfit.  It's not very exciting as I was having a slouchy day that day but the last couple of outfit posts I've done have been outfits I'd wear out on a night out, or when the weather warms up so I thought I'd share something I actually wore.  I bought the trousers from Matalan (they were £5 in the sale!) and I've struggled with what to wear them with.  I think they are o-kay with this breton top but if you have any better ideas please share them!

cardigan: matalan | necklace: bohemian collective
trousers: matalan | shoes: flat shoes by betty london
Well, now it's time to bid you adieu, glance guiltily around at all the unpacking, washing and ironing I should do and hide under the duvet and pretend it's not there.  Hope you've all had lovely weekends and not too shabby Mondays,

    P.S. Have you ordered that printed dress in your ebay post? I was wondering what size you got/were thinking of getting. I want to buy it next month and not sure!

  4. The trousers look good Rosie. How about with a similar fit top but a block of primary colour?

  5. Those trousers are awesome, and I LOVE pasties (though I maintain that Devon ones are better :P ) Make sure you take some time for you too lovely- we don't want you burning yourself out, and it sounds like you've been a busy bee recently! xx

  11. I wish I could cook the perfect pasty, I made them in food tech once and they're were pretty good, but no where near as good looking as your mum's. ALSO HENRY IS SO CUTE. I hope you had a nice relaxing evening, we all need it sometimes xxx

  12. Mmmm, pasties. I have to admit to knocking up a good pasty now and again (chicken, bacon and cream cheese served hot with onion gravy and mashed potato...yum!).

    Can you tell me what camera you use? Your pictures are crystal clear and so fab.

  13. Ahhh, good old Cornish pasties. I'm from the south Devon, very nearly Cornwall, so these have inevitably played a huge part in my life, having them with wine is new though, haha. Sounds like a lovely day, what a gorgeous puppy Henry is.
