263 days to go: Inspired by Michelle

I am sooo tired!
I have been getting up just after 5am to get as much work in as I can before the children get up.
I managed to slot in a walk to the beach with the dog this morning and finished off a pile of work before the first of them rose around 10am.
My husband has taken the week off work to "help me" - he got up at 11am.
The 13-year-old emerged bleary-eyed - just in time for the bacon butties while the 17-year-old stayed in his duvet with the laptop practising for his driving theory exam tomorrow.
One day I will miss all this.
I got the idea for wearing the brooch this way after falling asleep watching the news and seeing what Michelle Obama was wearing.
Some things are worth staying awake for - the National TV awards weren't!

I wore brown Oasis tunic
Jeans - Joe Brown
Cowboy Boots - Dorothy Perkins
Belt - Matalan
Scarf - magazine freebie
Cardigan - Zara
Brooch -charity shop worn a la Michelle Obama on the Jay Leno show.

I am loving what's going on here.
The brooch is gorgeous - I'm going to steal that idea.
Good luck with the driving test thingy tomorrow.
Hope you get a nice lie-in one of these days

Looking terrific! Love the brooch idea...I may just copy it too! By the way, hope you manage to get some 'you' time soon.
