Stylish Dressing

Frances always has the most perceptive, clever comments. Sometimes I think twice about putting pictures up, wondering what she will see in them with all her psychology expertise. LOL Also they are always beautifully and imaginatively written and I am in danger of getting a girlie crush (but not an obsessive one) on Frances as a result. LOL

As Frances picked up from her observations of the holiday snaps Eleanor is becoming a stylish dresser and that is because she is spending more time with her friend Eden. She used to be friends with Eden in infant school and I remember her as a tiny red head running about in a tiny fur coat.

Eden's Mum (don't know her name, it's always so and so's Mum) is one of the most striking dressers hereabouts, and that is where Eden probably gets it from. Eden's Mum is a child minder but quite an unusual one in that often several jaws will hit the floor when she enters the playground with a buggy and lots of little kids in tow. She has long black hair and always flaming red lipstick and is always strikingly dressed, fur coats, black stiletto boots, shades, and mini skirts. (She is a lady who spends some time at the gym). She looks like she could take on the world. I like her for not conforming to any homely childminder stereotypes LOL

Eden is always beautifully dressed when she comes to our house, and has recently been wearing lime green a lot because her Mum says it will go with her hair. She came round looking like this the other day and I just had to take a photo as she looked so good (stylish and chic).

Here is a recent fashion shoot in our back garden. Eden's permission has been obtained for this airing on my blog, but it will be removed in a few days.

Scotland Holiday Snaps


I am going to enjoy this as I like writing the captions.

1. I think this is the Mull of Kintyre where Paul McCartney lives and wrote the famous song.
2. Ell
3. C'est moi, and I look quite cheerful.
4. Cold water
5. Scotland is absolutely beautiful when you have the weather.
6. Castle battlements
7. Now Scarborough as we gave up on Scotland because it was raining too much.
8. Scotland again, and Scamp is looking out to sea in a romantic way.
9. Top of Burns Monument. As Jack gets older he is increasingly prone to giving me dirty looks. LOL Topical this, as Jeremy Paxman was in the paper saying that Burns is just a load of old doggerel, and I must say, I found it hard to understand.
10.Enjoying the moment
11. Pristine landscape in Scotland
12. I think Jack is getting fed up of me taking photos all the time and is trying to jeopardise my photo opps (he is only joking and does come from 'ull)
13. Jack really has taken it too far this time LOL
14. Robin Hoods Bay
15. Jack strikes a thoughtful pose in Scarborough
