Shoes, Snuggies & More Snow!!…

moresnow! We woke this morning to more snow!!…albeit a light dusting & nothing to cause too much disruption, but it was still a bit of a surprise!!  I was out with the girls last night for our regular ‘Last Friday Of The Month’ get-together  & we were even cold inside the restaurant, so I guess it shouldn’t have been a surprise, but it was!!!

And no sooner was I up this morning than a delivery van arrived….now, what could I have ordered?…something I really needed?…Yeah right!!! Like I need more shoes!!!

But that was what was in my parcel…..I guess being someone of a larger than average size, I have always found consolation in the fact that while I may not always be able to wear, or even find, the style of clothes I’d like in my size, I can pretty much wear whatever shoes I take a fancy to!!

These days I can’t cope with killer heels, but love my flats…so today’s parcel contained a gorgeous pair of black suede flat pumps, with a deep suede ruffle across the toes..I love ‘em!

I have just a little scrappiness to share today….this is a LO for the latest TAAFOMFT challenge ‘My Favourite Outfit’…I still have this raincoat in my wardrobe…I bought it in Harrods sale, back before the boys were born & it only gets an outing on the odd occasion these days!  I just love spots & anyone who knows me will tell you I am mostly to be found wearing B&W, so it has to be my all time favourite!FaveOutfit 

Now…I’ll leave you with a scary thought….I received an email  this week, which claimed to be offering ideas for the perfect Valentines gifts…& it included this…Snugglie4two

A ‘Snuggie’…..for TWO!!!   So that’s basically a blanket with FOUR sleeves!

What are they thinking?!!!!

After our Christmas debacle, I forwarded the email to my DH & added… “NO NO NO NO NO!!!!”

I hope he gets the message!!

(Chuckling to myself at the thought of a 'snuggle for two'! Now, you see, you could both wear one of those to bed and not have to worry about your other half nicking the duvet. How convenient!) lol

Such a gorgeous, elegant and sophisticated LO! Lovely shoes too. I can't wear heels either ...

PS... The Snuggie for 2 sounds, ummmm, a little odd doesn't it?! LOL!
