It's a good day!

I have to start by saying that today I am having a great day! No work this morning so I got to sleep in and bring my two year old daughter to her playgroup. She was delighted to have her mummy in with her today. I found time to drop into a new afternoon playschool that an old school friend of mine set up in the old Protestant Church and watch the kids at storytime. Hopefully there will be a place for my little one come September. She is bursting to join this group. Then I had a leisurely drive to work (not the usual two hour wait in rush hour traffic) and even had time to stop for a picnic lunch by the Papal Cross in the Phoenix Park.

I even found time to do a bit of vintage shopping before starting into an afternoon of work (where at the moment I actually seem to be on top of things). Check out the new additions...

I'm wearing the second top right now and I have had loads of compliments on it! The last one is my favorite. A little weight loss and it will look even better on...there's my incentive for this week's good girl diet.
Tommrows primise...I will put some of my wardrobe clearance items on ebay before I buy anything else...

The shoes that inspired a blog...

I cant believe that my life has come to this but when I found these shoes (and more importantly in my size!) they propelled me to start writing again. I think it's so strange how the smallest of things can start a chain reaction. So my reaction is this new blog!
This is my first attempt at a blog so you may have to be a little patient with me as my sporadic bursts at creativity often get overlooked in the whirlwind that is life.
I tend to be quite fickle in my outbursts focusing on one creative outlet and then losing attention very quickly and moving on to the next. My latests fixations are a return to vintage fashion which floats through the era's and ends up a mish mash of styles, and creating greeting cards. The plan is 1) to clear out my wardrobe and make room for all new new old peices and b) to set up an etsy store for my cards. Oh and c) to get fit and actually lose the well established post baby weight this year! I'm hoping that going public on a blog will focus me and keep me to the goal at hand. No more airy fairy when making promises to myself. This girl means business in 2010 (and 2011, 2012 etc!).
