It is amazing what a difference 2 years can make... Around this time 2 years ago, I was 5 months pregnant with my Chubster. We had just found out we were having another boy. It took us 3 ultrasounds because the first 2 tries, the Chubster refused to uncross his legs. Strong willed from the get go I tell ya!
Then about a year ago, I went back to work when my Chubster was just shy of being 8 months old. And I have to say that the kid does look fantastic in turquoise, but I am just being biased of course, because he is my kid and turquoise is my favourite colour!
A year ago, I was thoroughly enjoying my obsession with the colour turquoise. See?
Last week, I had my last day at work. I decided to take the job offer I got the other day and start mid June. And even though I am being given as much flexibility as I need, there is still going to be a fair bit of juggling between MrBB and I for the first few months while I settle into my new role, so wish me luck. Anyway, this is what I wore on my last day at work.
Chanel shoes, J Brand jeans, Glassons top, Salvatore Ferragamo scarf, Cassia de Shanghai necklace, Yves Saint Laurent ring, Prada bag
The guys at work took me out for lunch and gave me a couple of bunches of gorgeous flowers which were enough to fill all of these up for me. I thought they'd die a horrible death because they had to spend several hours in the car under stinking hot conditions before they even made it home.
For those of you who don't know, I married a pom, he is a Yorkshire man through and through, so the other day my mother in law sent him this apron. I won't lie, I tried it on, but felt really fake in it, not because I'm not a Yorkshire woman, but because I seldom have the need to wear an apron since I avoid cooking or doing other kitchen related stuff like the plague.
My Bubba is still enjoying his martial arts lessons. At the moment they are being taught how to fall without hurting themselves. They are also being taught not to become bullies and how to react/respond to bullying.
And of course, Happy Mother's day everyone. Hope you all had a great day and spare a thought for those who have either lost their Mum or a child.
Our local swimming pool was giving these out to all the kids today so they could gift it to their Mums. So thoughtful.
My husband gave me flowers (so loving getting so many flowers!!!), a box of chocolates and something else that has not arrived yet.
And my Bubba also made me these at pre school. As the years go by, I realise more and more how special these hand made gifts are.

And because this is mother's day, I leave you with pics of my little rascals.
Here's my Chubster trying to see if he can catch a glimpse of his brother during his swimming class.
He's figured out how to get into the toy box, but not how to get out.
I don't know why the kids seem to be so obcessed with climbing.
Must be a boy thing because I never see any of the little girls doing any climbing.
Enjoy the rest of your Sunday everyone.
