Casual and bright… Oi, turquois! + Life of an introvert homebody…

Hi, friends, just a quick post to say hello and to tell all about my day. Sun is shining, but it will not last, cold weather will hit Ireland on Wednesday afternoon, if we can trust weather forecast, ah, well… Let’s just hope they got it wrong this time…

On the positive note- there is new arrival in my wardrobe- turquoise jeans.

I bought it last week from this shop and of course I wanted to share my bright and colourful look with you.

Great holiday vibe to it, makes me smile and feel positive. I think Turquoise is my colour, and also my birth stone! This is mama-style at it’s best!

We have spent most of the time outdoors with kids, in the past few days. Everyone took  advantage of the rare heatwave! BBQ smell is in the air! Children are having fun and enjoying the weather, watching butterflies and listening birdsongs. It’s awesome. I even took my book outside, which I rarely do, due to the windy and rainy weather, but this time I read with my sunglasses on! (this kind of things just do not happen in Ireland!) I am still reading  “In from the Cold” by Nora Roberts, (almost finished) and overdosing on hot tea, as always… Gotta break the habit, but- I’m Irish, so the tea for me is the food, the drink and the cure for everything…

We were at the Christening on Sunday, and to tell you the truth, guys, I was absolutely exhausted coming home, running after my 19 months old in the high heels is no joke…

I took this photo while running, hence the quality…

 

He is just so cute and lovable, and fast! hahaha

It’s not often, that we go out as a family; to mark an occasion I was hoping, to take unreasonable amount of beautiful photos, but that did not happen. I was too busy to even think about taking photos, just had to keep little one safe. I was surprised at how easily I get tired and how unfit my body felt. The whole experience got me thinking, that maybe, I should start exercising or even getting out more… I am introvert, so I have never been the star of the party, and I do enjoy comfort of my home, but at what point should person force him/ herself to socialize more? I have discussed it with other stay at home mommies, online, and many of them feel the same- “it’s just easier to stay at home with small children”… Perhaps it’s just a stage we are going through…

I do not crave company to be honest, rather quiet, I love to get hour or two of absolute silence, that is how I recharge, I steal those hours late at night, when kids are asleep, or early in the mornings… I don’t mind either way. I think it works out well and I feel happy, so maybe socializing is not for everyone… Will have to think about it some more…

But there is one thing I enjoy enormously (and I am good at it hahaha) – you guessed it- it’s book shopping! On Sunday night I bought 10 books online (from my fav pre-loved book shop ) and now I can’t wait for my lovely books to arrive… Can’t wait! Never too many books aka “Main thing is not to run out of reading material”, correct term, I believe, is Abibliophobia.

Book photography is coming soon!

That’s it for today.

Talk soon

Toni.
