....and a night at the races

On Saturday night my friend Hazel and I had a night out at Oxford Dogs, it was my first visit to the world of greyhound racing and I had an absolutely fabulous time. We had a delicious 3 course dinner and both had substantial wins (£21.40 for me and £45.80 for her!!), I'll definitely go again!!
I arrived at her house and was greeted with balloons, cake, pressies, party poppers and Schloer! This is because she didn't get to see me for my birthday weekend.
I must admit that when I've been to the horse racing in the past I've had a bit of betting fever, the dogs were no different!!
Can't wait for my next visit.......

A day at the jumble....

Hello there,
I had a very productive and fun weekend.
On Saturday afternoon I accompanied Clare to the jumble sale at Naphill Village Hall (I grew up in Naphill but no longer live there, whenever I return it feels like I'm entering a weird parallel universe). I think I spent a grand total of £3.00 and came away with some fantastic swag....
My favourite: a blue and white polka dotted dress, original Berketex, looks ridiculously good on.
Amazingly 70's printed maxi dress, cannot wait for festival season when this will be teamed with a denim waistcoat, long necklaces and plenty of fringing for a Stevie Nicks look (I nicked this off of Clare, I owe her 30p).
A fine knit bat-wing jumper, will look great with wide legged jeans or trousers.
A royal blue Chinese brocade tuxedo/smoking style jacket from Monsoon (nicked off Clare, I owe her 30p!!). I plan to wear this to death.
Shame this picture doesn't fully illustrate the lovely bead work spanning out from the collar of this sweater, a modern take on the 20's style
A grey vest with a navy lace and satin bow, I think this will look cute with jeans but also tucked into a pencil skirt!
A Lipsy khaki tunic/long line shirt - will be great worn with skinny jeans or leggings.
An aubergine coloured M&S bias cut dress
I also bought some tortoiseshell 'Wayfarer' style sunglasses, 3 books and 2 nicely coloured metal tea caddies which I'll use for storing stuff in.
All in all a great afternoon!!!
