It’s my birthday!
Sorry I haven’t been posting for a while – I am the queen of starting things with good intentions and then giving them up. But I’m not giving up on this – I was just on a break 🙂
Anyway, did I mention IT’S MY BIRTHDAY!!??
When you reach a certain age (over 30 but I’m not saying how much over) birthdays become a bit of a non-event. Especially when they are on a Wednesday and there are the usual school runs and after school activities to be done. I did go for a lovely lunch with my mum at McKees in Craigantlet and ate far too much, resulting in an afternoon of being very unproductive but I don’t care because IT’S MY BIRTHDAY!
And I got presents!
From Dave – well, this is quite a long story
During the Easter holidays, my sister in law and I saw a girl wearing yellow jeans and a breton top pretty much exactly like this and it made me lust after yellow jeans. So I bought myself these ones from Boden
Now the fact that they were in the kids department should have made me think the sizing was not going to be generous but when they arrived they pretty much wouldn’t go past my knees – back they went!
So my lovely husband took it upon himself to get me a pair and for Mother’s day – these Replay ones appeared, which were the perfect colour the perfect length but only just made it over my childbearing hips – back they went!
So, today – another pair of yellow jeans – these ones from Hilfiger Denim. Great colour (a bit brighter than in this picture) and they just about buttoned up, but were VERY low rise and were about 3 inches too long – so they are packaged up and ready to go back tomorrow!
1. I am not a size 28 in jeans – stop kidding yourself, Janine!
2. Always get the receipt.
3. I’m not sure I actually want yellow skinny jeans anymore.
But the good news is we are going on a birthday trip to Dublin (including an overnight stay – yippee!) next weekend so maybe he gets to try and buy me another present then!
