One Hundred and Thirty Two

Dress: Primark. Blazer: Nikka. Hat: H&M Kids. Bag: Primark. Boots: Primark.

Today saw me start my new job, as a real grown up. No nursery rhymes, baking or reading. Just paperwork. And a desk. My own desk. With LOTS of stationary. It excited me. Probably a little too much, that I don't think "Ooh this and this and this and THAT are fancy" went down well in the office...
 And of course, littlebum took some photos of me as I set off for my adventure. Not only do I look like a school girl about to go to school for her first day, but I also FELT like one. My dress made me feel grown up. My blazer made me feel like I was a boy trying to be a grown man wearing your dad's suit. And my bag made me look like I was giving Mary Poppins a run for her money (I bet she'd cry if she knew that a replica was from Primark for a fraction of the price!) And don't get me started on my boots... I have worn and worn these in the hope my feet would adjust. They were doing well. Till I had to walk on the cobbled road. Where upon I stumbled approximately 4 times.  And got my heel stuck slightly. Let's just say, for a 5 minute journey, it was quite an adventure! 
Putting my poorly feet aside (sorry guys, it'll be happening again tomorrow!), I did enjoy my day. Thoroughly.    And I cannot wait to get back to my stapler and OWN signature'd email address tomorrow. Unless they fired me for oohing and aahing at the post it notes I got. That are now spread over the computer...

  7. It sounds like you're going to settle in to work quickly, it always helps when you're enthusiastic. I am going to catch up with your previous post. I just got back from annual leave and I have so much work to do this week, if you don't hear from me... it's because i've passed out under the desk! x

  8. I think you look great. You do look as if you are young, so I bet a suit case type bag would make you feel more adult.

  10. You look absolutely gorgeous, I'm not sure I'd want someone so pretty and stylish working in my office, I'd feel so inadequate all the time, haha! Glad your first day went well, I know exactly what you mean about the stationery - we have a stationery cupboard and I have to restrain myself from raiding it every day!
