And obviously, neither could I be bothered with an exciting photo :)
It is silly, because I had good intentions this morning and wanted to look nice since I had a very important function lined up: my children were taking me out today for an early Mother's Day treat. We had to have it today, since for the real Mother's Day next Sunday, all of my children are working for some part of the day or another and there will be no overlapping free time in which I can spend time with all of them together. So, today we had a firm date. We went to Koko Black, and ate toasted sandwiches and drank hot chocolate and chatted about everyone's lives and what we were all doing at the mo' and it was so so so nice to hang out with them and laugh together and really listen to each other... I had the most wonderful-lest time.
I'm on cloud 9 even now.
Oh, what was I saying? Oh yeah, I wanted to look nice for our outing, but in the end I just could not get inspired. But who cares? They didn't mind. Of course it didn't matter a jot what I was wearing.
Picture taken around 2pm; Temperature at the time 22C.
Overnight low: 13C; Today's high: 23C
Forecast was for thunderstorms and rain, but has actually been fine all day with both cloudy and sunny patches. Maybe a dozen raindrops? (sigh) At least we got some rain yesterday.

And in a super synchronised synergy, wait for it; two of my children came downstairs rocking me-made items today! Cassie wearing the little layered skirt I made for her using the leftovers of my Japanese wool/silk, and Sam the corduroy coat I made for him last winter.
I am so lucky to have them.
