Style not Age is such a meaningful title, where our style is the important issue, not our ages!

Good night and Sweet Dreams.

Good morning and how are you all?

Getting back on-track slowly but surely, I just wish this bloomin' awful weather will do one!  It's either really cold or pouring with rain - who wants to get dressed up to the nines in weather like this?  I do try, like today I was indoors in the morning, so popped on my gingham cropped trousers - thinking they'd look super cute with my black suede ankle boots, wrong choice as I was freezing when I popped out to run errands and buy ingredients for dinner.  It was blowing a hoolie, with the wind whipping around my ankles like nobodies business,  I was even asked if my ankles were cold by a shop keeper!  That'll teach me - jeans it is next time. Huh!!! 
On the plus side my dinner choice was banging 👏 homemade Meatballs and Spaghetti, even though I say it myself, I can cook awesome meatballs!  (If you fancy trying them yourself, pop over to see my favourite recipes section to find the recipe.)

Today I'm sharing an awareness post  -  Bladder weakness.

Readers.Com - Happy Eyes, Happy Wallet.

Hello from Mummab ... how are you all?

Some twenty years ago the idea that I would need glasses for reading never occurred to me!  Naive or stupid?  I'm not sure but now some years later glass for reading is a fact of life.  I actually hate having to wear them, specs on the end of my nose confirms just what age I am.  I've tried contact lenses which I would opt for, but feel because I'm only working indoors, doing housework or blogging it's just not worth it.  So glasses for reading it is then.  If I have to wear them, I'm going to look stylish doing it!

Another way with my Red pleated skirt.

Hi there.

I'm very slowly getting back to normal and can't believe how a cold can knock you for six!
I came down with this unwanted ailment last week after retuning home on a high from skiing.  I managed to get all the washing done, except some ski gear and had even managed a cycle class!  then it all went to pot.  I knew I was getting something, but hadn't guessed the severity.  I wouldn't say I had the flu, but certainly was suffering a very bad cold that did necessitate me to stay in bed for a couple of mornings - dragging myself up to then just lay on the sofa - yes that bad!

I'm usually a very 'well' person, always seems to avoid the coughs, colds, and upset tummies that make the rounds most years, so when I am struck down I hate it!
I hate having no energy, no oomph to get things done, not wanting to eat and feeling tired - it's just not me and I'm glad to see the back of it!

I'm sick - 'cough cough' !!

Morning all.
Well my end of week/weekend have all rolled into one!  I've been in between the bed and the sofa for the past few days, struck down by the lurgy!  I'm not sure it was the flu, but a cold has never made me feel like that before!  Unfortunately having promised you and myself plenty - basically nothing has been done, no blog, no photos, no housework, no cooking and ... hold on a minute .... no eating (well a little) ... I must have been poorly because I always feel like eating!!

So trying to get back to as normal as possible today,  All I have to offer are my three top outfits from January.

Cheery red in a dreary Feb!

Hello there, how are you all?

How come when your come back from a winters holiday things seem very dull and boring?  With no sunshine to brighten the day, way too much washing and ironing to do, with no sign of another skiing holiday to look forward to, & I feel a cold is lurking around the corner!

What's the best thing to do when feeling low - dress up in bright, radiant colours of course.  I really wanted comfort today, yes I really wanted to wear my tracksuit all day and lounge on the sofa.  To be fair I didn't have a hard day, just housework and lunch with my mum 😁.
Back to what I wore, jeans - stretch at that!  Comfy boots, long sleeve pain grey tee shirt and it had to be my bold, vibrant red jacket, that cheered me up no end, that and a chat with my mum!
