On Saturday we decided to be totally craazy and head out to our local IKEA. The most crazy part of this is that we live a ten minute walk away and I could totally have gone there during the week when it's quiet. As you may well know by now this family are big IKEA fans, we know that place like the back of our hands so the busyiness didn't phase us too much. My friends joke I should run a shopping service where I help people complete IKEA without arguments, its all in the shortcuts my friends ;)

Wilf and I were sent some new shoes from Clarks and I'm not entirely sure who was more excited (me probably but it really was a close call). If you are a regular reader of this here blog of mine you may have noticed Wilf and his red wellies are pretty inseparable. When we first got them they were a good size too big so we stuffed double socks on him and and figured 'better to big than too small' this being the case he has quite happily worn them daily for the past four months or so. I think it was a nice change though to have some actual shoes, I've tried running about in wellies and great as they are for puddle jumping they are not the best for climbing and speeding about. Wilf shouted 'LOOK at my new tippy tappies!' and is using the shoe box to house his plastic animals.

These brogues on my feet? I fell in love with them just about as soon as I saw them on the website and my feet are very happy to call them a home too, they are perfectly comfortable. Maybe the best thing about them though, apart from their beauty and comfort is the clip clap noise they make as you walk. Making you feel like a proper grown up off to do grown up things (I imagined a trip to the library or something, don't they look like they would suit a library trip?) clip clap clip clap.

I didn't realise how much yellow was in these pictures until I got home, its making me feel very spring like. That my friend is what we wore on the weekend :)

That yellow colour really suits you - not a colour that everyone can carry off. And the white brogues are really cool! Clarke's you say? Who'd have though it?!
