21.7.08

Just the two of us.........

Today was the first day of my summer holidays-I have 6 weeks off-yay!!!
Plus, what makes these following 3 days special, is that Chris and I have them to ourselves, as Christopher and Robert don't start their holidays until Thursday :-))
So, once the boys were at school, our itinerary was as follows-
First-breakfast at Costa Coffee


I had an almond croissant and a mocha flake with cream-delicious!!!
Then-Shopping, Oxfam has a great retro section and I just had to have this original 60s cotton summer dress!!!

We then went home, so Chris could check out his new Playstation 3 game and I was so famished I suggested a picnic at the local park. We went to Sainsburys to get some just cooked chicken from the rotisserie counter and some pick your own pasta and green salads to take to the park.

Yay-I didn't have to wait to wear my new white dress!!

Oh, picnics are such hard work-me and my lovely new Chanel bag!!

Tomorrow we are hoping to go to London-more shopping, maybe??

Two gorgeous dresses, and lucky you to have lots of time off. I'm guessing most of your time off will be fashion related?

Nay'Chelle said...

Love the blue dress. Yay for summer break!

Ida said...

Sharon, darling, you look adorable in the white summer dress! Absolute perfection with the necklace.

It is so nice to have breakfast with your loved one without having to hurry for work or something, I just LOVE breakfasts. And yours surely looks endearing.

Have loads of fun in London!

Random but why do the boys still go to school in July?? Is it summer school or just England:)?

angelgrotton said...

Wow, you seemed to have a miraculous vacation )))

Hugs from Angel.

Sharon Rose said...

Hi nay'chelle-thanks so much, holidays are the best-haha!!

Hi ida-oh, it was really nice for just the two of us to have breakfast together and out too-we both so enjoyed it-thanks so much!! British school holidays generally start the last week or so of July and then pupils return the beginning of September-so most people get 6 weeks off.

Hi angel-well, I'm off to a good start-thanks my dear!!

Pamcasso said...

the food pictures are making me very hungry!

Sharon Rose said...

Sharon Rose said...

Hi pam-thanks so much, my lovely!!

Fashion Critic said...

Lucky you to have six weeks off. Would I be right to assume you are a teacher?

Sharon Rose said...

Hi fashion critic-thanks-I'm not a teacher, I'm a part time high school catering assistant, so I do get all the school holidays anyway!

Ashleigh said...
