Sparkly Tartan Skirt And Beautiful Butterfly Boots

Sparkly Tartan Skirt And Beautiful Butterfly Boots. Hello friends, happy Wednesday. 

I hope you have all had a wonderful Christmas? 

We saw my parents on Christmas Day and it was amazing. So tomorrow we enter Tier 4. When is it ever going to end!?

Sparkly Tartan Skirt And Beautiful Butterfly Boots

Sparkly Tartan Skirt And Beautiful Butterfly Boots:

This is the outfit I wore on Boxing Day. A beautiful sparkly tartan skirt I picked up in the sales before Christmas from Tu Clothing sale at Sainsbury's. 

A plain black polo neck lightweight jumper and these beautiful sparkly butterfly boots that I picked up from Primark years and years ago for around £3.00 but have never worn.

Family Is My Everything: Mum & Daughter Travels

Family Is My Everything: Mum & Daughter Travels. Happy Sunday friends. Today I am linking up with My Sunday Photo. 

Sharing one of my favourite photos of the year.

I am sharing a photo I took earlier this year of my daughter and I on a trip to the farm. We loved our little bit of quality time together and not really had much since March. 

Family Is My Everything: Mum & Daughter Travels

Family Is My Everything: Mum & Daughter Travels:

This year has been hard for everyone. My daughter is at an age where we can travel and she is happy to stay out all day. She is leaving school next year and wanting to study photography. 

This year we wanted to travel more and take photos wherever we go, which obviously has not happened. 

Now we find out not only we can not travel we can not see our family on Boxing day as we have always done so.

Life has been pretty crappy this year for us all and I can not see signs of it changing anytime soon. Let's just hope thing's start to improve in the new year before she gets too old to want to go out with mum and dad!!

Black And White Polka Dot's: What I Wore At The Farm:

I love these photo's, especially the one of me and mini-me. It was lovely on Sunday at the farm and not too many people around which was a bonus for us as we were avoiding crowds of people as much as possible.

We are trying to avoid crowds at the minute with the Coronavirus so it was perfect here. We love to go and see all the adorable animals here and feed them. Black And White Polka Dot's: What I Wore At The Farm.
