Hello peeps! You ok? If you're in the U.S. then I hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving.
Over here, all should be relatively quiet but I just don't know where my time is going. Whilst The Photographer was away I got stuck in with the domestics, some serious cleaning and re-organising before the Christmas decs go up. I've still got lots on my list before I can say I'm truly happy with my efforts. But I love change, so I'll keep ploughing on.
How about you? Are you taking the opportunity to make changes before the festivities truly kick in?
I also set up a Christmas Action List a few weeks ago, my Christmas Countdown, and that always gives me some mental relief, some respite, seeing on paper just what needs to be done and when seems to be a huge stress-reliever.
Eating our way through the freezer is another pre-Christmas
tradition necessity, making freezer space for all the goodies.
Does all this sounds like pretty much what you've been up to too?
But it hasn't been all hard graft as Chez Pout. The fun stuff has been varied, with lunches, a pre-birthday brunch (with presents!),
During lunch with a friend on my birthday I heard the news that I would be sharing by day with a new arrival, a second great niece! Then I had a super birthday supper with the family which included a surprise music recital ...
... And a birthday cake with sparklers (AND I got to take some home!)
All so wonderful!
TP returned this week so we had a nice meal out as a joint post-birthday treat. Plus we saw a Star Is Born! Wow!! Bradley and, er, Lady are totally convincing in their characters. Have you seen it?
Anyway, all this is leading to an apology for being a tad lax with style posts this past week or two. So by way of apology, I leave you with a round up of my day to day outfits that have got me out of the house and off to the supermarket, for that seems to have made up most of my out of house activity of late. The rest of the time I've been wearing leggings and a baggy tee shirt, ideal for crawling in cupboards or climbing on step ladders but not post-worthy eh?!
You'll be seeing a lot of this leather cap, bought in NZ in the Y2K.
This AW I've fallen in love with it all over again.

If even one of you dear readers finds even one snippet of inspo in this lot, then my photograph malarkey will not have been in vain!
A la perchoine,
