Well, the stars aligned yesterday and not only did it not rain, but I also managed to take some outfit photos, and I'm actually incredibly pleased with them. I bought this dress in a sale at International a couple of weeks ago, it isn't usually a store I go into but I'm a sucker for buy one half price deals so I decided to go in and have a look. In the end I didn't actually buy anything else, but for £6 I think this is an amazing deal.

The enjoyable part of yesterday involved a long walk with the dogs (admittedly I didn't wear these white shoes for that part of the day) and going round to have dinner with my family. I used to be a little bit of a brat and hated that my parents insisted on sitting down at the table, with no tv, to have dinner each night. Now that so many of my dinner are eaten sitting at my laptop, or standing in the kitchen as my current flat doesn't have a dining table, I appreciate it much more. I'm looking forward to being able to sit down with the French at our own table and chatting about our day soon.

Today I've got a busy day moving some of my stuff back home, I want to make it as easy as possible when the French gets back to sort everything out which means a lot of my clothes are going into suitcases and plastic bags until we have somewhere permanent to put them. Hopefully I will get it all done early though and get to spend the rest of the day house hunting and maybe going down to the river with the dogs.

I hope you all have great weekends!
