Lazy weekend = busy Monday!

Yes I've had a lazy weekend relaxing and doing nothing!  Well that's not strictly true preparing a roast dinner for three was about the highlight of my weekend. 
With two daughters still away and both sons at work, it was not a full on roast dinner that was prepared but still as tasty nonetheless.   I have to say though the old saying is true 'the less you do, the less you feel like doing'.
I have to say I did wake up feeling full of vigour and ready to face the on-coming week full on!

Now a busy day did eventually follow, but only in the car! 
Collecting my daughters from the airport was supposed to be a 3 hour journey, but with the traffic it turned into a four and a half  hour journey in a hot stuffy car sitting in endless traffic jams due to road works and holiday congestion!  What fun.
Nice to finally get my precious cargo on board and make for home.

Wearing a dress was the best choice today, I didn't want anything too fitted like jeans or a skirt to travel in. 
This dress from Debenhams years ago similar Here Is a wrap around with a fixed waist and tie belt.
The cream background has a bold print design of black and beige flowers and leaves.  Cap sleeves are very flattering on the arms and the length is perfect finishing below the knee on the shin.  I've teamed with white shoes, however the dress would look equally charming with black long boots and a black jacket.
Pearls are a must with today's look, very sophisticated and tres chic.

There you have it.  Do I look like I've driven a four and a half hour journey to and from Stanstead Airport?
I wouldn't mind but I didn't even have the enjoyment of the holiday :-(

Relaxing with a glass of vino now - bliss.

Bye for today .. X
