Under my Umbrella, ella, ella, eh, eh, eh...



Today I bought a much needed Umbrella!

Modelled here in the field at the back of our house by my daughter Daisy... (I'm not sure what she is looking at, probably a small mouse, or eek... a snake).

Whilst doing our mini photoshoot in the middle of the field, unexpectedly it did start to rain... and I thought that was just an old wives' tale.

It is very cute and… very dotty (the umbrella is nice too). I've noticed a bit of a theme running in my last couple of posts, dotty things! I seem to have developed some sort of crush on polka dots – bit like Jane at workthatwardrobe she confesses to loving dotty things too!

I got this from the godsend that is Matalan. They are open after work hours... every day... what more can I say?.

Daisy has always called it Mataland, I think the reason for this is that it feels like a small country to her, given how long it takes me to get round it!

Total spent today: £3
