Building Work & Baby Shower.

Good morning everyone. 
How you all faring today?

Been a busy week for me, we started our new build in the garden last Monday and the week was full on!
The concrete footings are in now so 'the once plans on paper' now is very real. I actually can’t wait as since we moved into our house over 10 years ago we’ve not done much to it at all. The only things we had to do is put in a new kitchen and complete my new dressing room. 
I’m thinking of doing an IG account for it so you can follow along, but not sure if I can make another one yet! Something to do with one account for one email. ๐Ÿ˜•

So with the footings dug, measured, leveled and finally had the pour it’s all ready for the next stage.  
David can do a lot of the work himself and knows many people in the trade so will be our Project Manager (that’s a flash title, maybe I can be assistant project manager!!)

Saturday I joined my girls for a friend's baby shower.
It’s a nice way to celebrate with the mum-to-be, family and friends. They did a wonderful graze board and we had bucks fizz to compliment the food.  We also played a couple of games ... guess the bump size using a piece of cord, guess the due date, write a note on a nappy for 'mum' to read when baby's here and guess the 'Baby or Beer Belly' photos.  We had a lovely couple of hours and then went on to meet the rest of the family to watch the carnival.

With weather still in the mid 20’s I had to be in a dress! This was my second purchase from Majorca, you can have a look at my first one that get's lots of nice compliments here.

My Holiday Edit - #Chicandstylish #LINKUP

Hi there everyone, how are you doing?
Are you managing in the heat?
It's still hot here in the UK although some days are more muggy and humid than blazing sunshine. I have to admit I've managed to keep topping the tan up which I love, little and often is a good policy for tanning!
I've been an excited Mummab this week as we have finally started our new build.  When we bought our house over 10 years ago we had plans to knock it down and build two new houses!  For various reasons we had put that on the back burner but last Monday everything was in place for the building to start.  
You can't imagine (unless you've built your own) all the tests, checking, plans and paperwork that goes into building new properties.  However the hard work has just started as my husband does a lot of the work himself!  I'm quite hands-on too and like to get involved when I can.  Just today I was sawing planks of wood to make some shuttering. It was a big electric saw and I'm actually really proud of what I did!

My recent holidays now seem to be a distant memory.  It doesn't take long to get back to normal once the suitcases and holiday clothes are packed away.  All the washing and ironing has been done and I'm dreaming of my next break which, hopefully isn't too far away! 
Today I thought it would be nice to re-live some memories and share some of the dresses I wore to Majorca.
The first is one of my favourites, a super cute green tee shirt midi. 
This is one of the first times I've ever worn this shade, but boy I can tell you I'll be wearing it again!
I picked this up in Peacocks just before my trip to Majorca, it was a bit of a last minute buy and I'm so glad I did.  I've dressed it up and down and it looks great for both! It's in the sale now for a tenner - amazing value!

July Review.

Hi everyone.
Thanks for joining me today, Mummabstylish needs and welcomes all your support - so Thank You!

It's shocking to be in August already don't you think?  This year, like many once we are a bit older seem to fly by so quickly.  Before long we'll be talking about Christmas won't we!

Anyway would you like a little re-cap of July and all her wonderful outfits and antics?
Well look no further as your wish is granted. x

The July Review is here.

My month has been a bit full on really.  With a week in Majorca in June and another trip to Rhodes last month there hasn't been much time in-between to get back into blogging.  I promise to get my head into the right space and produce better posts and hope you'll stay around to enjoy it with me. X

Looking back to the beginning of July I was lucky to find this stylish dress in Majorca, in the local market to be exact.  I like to return home with a little purchase or two & actually came back with two similar dresses, this one and another I've yet to show you.  Have a look at this classic smock dress that's an  irresistible shade of orange - well I certainly couldn't resist it, I had to have it.
What would you have done?  Seems I wasn't alone with my love of this one as I've had lots of nice comments about it. ๐Ÿงก
