I did get these from the car boot sale they were two bunches for £2.50 i stuck them in a kilner jar, stood back and admired the view and its really making me smile having flowers about the place again- i havet been able to stretch my funds far enough for an indulgence of this type over the holidays but i appreciate them all the more for it.
And lastly, these are new to a certain little lady who will be taking her first steps a week tomorrow into that big scary new place we call SCHOOL! She isnt really bothered at all in all honesty its me who feels im loosing my baby. We went to buy her first pair of school shoes on saturday, we took our meat counter ticket and waited patiently to be served. I think little lady was slightly shocked at how heavy the shoes felt to her, she's only used to wearing little ballet pump type shoes and im not sure im all that pleased about her tender little puds being squeezed into these day in day out, she's have the calf muscles of a russian shot putter in weeks! The have little purple cats on them which im sure will have swayed her choice here but, if you were four years old, wouldnt you want the new shoes with the purple cat on??!
I wont be sending her to school in the stripy socks of course-oh no, its boring grey or white im afraid.
I remember the feeling of getting my new school shoes, i was so excited and wandered around the house with them on for hours getting a feel for them, posing in front of the mirror, but i didnt get that same feeling of excitement from Ruby, maybe its because school is still a scary thought ....or maybe she has so many pairs of shoes that these are just another pair to be kicked off at the end of the day and then relegated to the shoe graveyard in a couple of months when they're scuffed and unloved(and grown out of!!). Whatever the reason, i got pleasure from seeing her in them, then all dressed up in her uniform-puuurrlllleeeasse can i try it all on together mummy?!!.....I'll let you know how shes getting on in a few months time, im sure big sister will show her the ropes then they'll be no stopping her!
