dotty, spotty, potty...



Today, I bought a La Redoute polka dot top from Oxfam* in Bury St Edmunds, it was £4.99.

I love dotty, spotty things and don't have nearly enough in my wardrobe, so this is a welcome addition.

Talking of dotty and spotty things, we've started potty training my 2 year old (what?... at least it rhymes).

He's been brilliant. So proud of himself. Never more so than the other day in a restaurant with the family. He politely asked for a wee and off we went to the toilet.

On our way back, he shouted to the rest of our table, in his proudest, loudest voice: "I DUN A POO!", "I DUN A POO!"

Well, of course we all clapped, cheered and congratulated him. Only when I looked around at the other diners tucking into their Sunday Roasts did I realise that they were not nearly as happy as us about this revelation.





*Have you been to the Oxfam website recently? You can now buy online from the site, which is always updating as all the items are one-offs. True feel good shopping.


ps. Is it wrong to love the new Miley Cyrus song? AND want to go and watch 'Fame' The Movie when it comes out tomorrow...? Help, what's wrong with me?

love the polka dot top!

your story about the poo reminds me, for some reason, of this one time i took my niece to a dairy queen (fast food/ice cream restaurant) and she was about 3 1/2 and she stood up in the booth and announced to everyone that her pants were too tight on her tummy and lifted up her shirt and undid the button! ahahhaha.

I love the cute and funny title of this post. I also love dots and spots, as much as I love stripes.

Great to hear about the potty training. That's one of the achievements that you and your baby can be proud of. Hugs!

Beautiful top! I love polka dots. :)

I am not sure if Mad Men has made it over to the UK yet. It's about a group of characters who are employed (or married to employees of) a New York advertising agency in the early 60s. It's a great show for getting to know (and love and hate) the well-written characters, and the period costuming and sets are beeeeautiful.

Love the shirt! And people are TOO squeamish at mealtimes! My mum is a physio, so growing up, we had to have no qualms about talking about slightly disgusting things. I can hold my own at medical dinners!

Oh, that outfit is divine! You look absolutely amazing. And no, it's certainly not wrong to love the new Miley Cyrus song. Since we're confessign things, I'll have you know that I adore songs by Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Tisdale, Miley Cyrus, Selena Gomez, and Demi Lovato. I constantly listen to them when I'm at home alone! :)

Struggler said...

Do you mean the Miley Cyrus song 'The Climb'? I love that too; it's a message I need to drum into my thick skull that there'll always be something else I haven't done! :)

I have an award to offer you, if you'd care to come on over to Struggling to be Stylish to collect it.
