What we saw on the way to the bank...


No little boy should be without his own clown fish Converse, as seen today in ‘Office’ £24.99.


No discerning mummy should be without a spotty mug. ‘Butlers’ in The Brunswick

Although, at the moment I am a spotty mug. I like the dark green, I'm being drawn towards green for the kitchen, not paint, just accessories, Lord knows why, my school uniform was bottle green so by law I should have a strong aversion to the colour but hey. I'm not allowing myself to think too much about decorating yet, but if we do get the flat, my posts might go from what we have seen and done in the West End to tedium infanitum about home decorating; which would be a relief from mortgage talk I'm sure. My work is easing off so may have time to actually do stuff again, wee hee.

We are big fans of Converse in our house. I kept all my sons since he was tiny, loads of lovely colours, but those clown fish ones are too cute.

I too wore a bottle green school uniform - not so attractive eh! But still, my favourite colour is green, in its many shades - except bottle green!

The little one needs to be stable on her feet for about 2 months before they recommend Converse. It's so hard to resist!
Looking forward to those decorating posts. Fingers crossed!!!
