Who Doesn't Love A Bargain?

Hi Everyone
Ready for the weekend? Hopefully, this gorgeous weather will stay with us.

Back to London now after a hectic week in Essex. It was good to spend time with mother. She has actually taken the photo today as OH was in Poland.
"I can't take photos for your blog!" She looked at me horrified! But after setting the camera up for her, she was actually quite impressed with herself. One day I will talk her into featuring on here. That would make my day. But she just won't allow a photo of herself on here yet!



My head got cut off but hey, not such a bad job mother!(I know she is reading)

The top I'm wearing here cost a mere £2.00 on a market stall at Kempton market. If you ever have the chance to go to this market do! There is never a time I don't come home with a bargain. 

An easy put together look here. I'm looking after my grandson today, so I need to move about freely and be comfortable. The trousers are Eastex and I live in them! Lightweight and so comfortable. 
The shopper and Espadrilles, well I've been banging on about them a lot the last couple of weeks.Just perfect for our good weather.



Meet Zack. One of the loves in my life. Who ask's a question every couple of minutes "But why?" yep that stage! He has been my companion the last couple of days. Like my best friend.

On arrival home, I was so pleased to see all my roses had bloomed. I had to share this stunner with you. My garden is coming along nicely. Still new fencing to be done and the second half of the garden lawned. I will share it with you soon.
Anyway, that's it from me. I will leave the "Ten Under Twenty" bargain finds below. What are you all up to this weekend? Anything exciting going on? Let me know!
XO Laurie
Have a great weekend!

"Ten Under Twenty!"

  12. You are absolutely right. Almost everyone bargains and even students who look for dissertation writing services, they also do bargaining to have less prices.

  27. I think this is so sweet to ask your mom to take a photo of you, she did quite a good job actually. Your outfit is very lovely Laurie, it feels light and easy to put on and get on going with the day. Thank you for sharing the photo of your grandson with us, as you might now I've just become grandmother myself so I now understand how important these little people are to us. The roses are gorgeous. Have a nice weekend
