Teenager


My baby is now 13 - his 13th birthday today on St. Andrews day - so happy birthday Joe and happy St. Andrews day!


I was just reading Sara Sara's entry and she mentions about clothes and how she likes scruffy. I likes scruffy and comfortable too! On Saturday I had my bosses leaving do and I was thinking I've got to find an outfit. John and I went round all the shops. Nothing took my eye! Nothing! But these days it never does! I think that I just cant be bothered! Is that bad? I hate the shops - they aim so much at the younger generations I think. I dont really know where I fit fashion wise - 43 I dont think of as being old but I also dont think I can get away with wearing some of the fashions either. Anyway, I ended up not buying anything and pulled out my lovely sloppy black dress that was comfy and wore it with lovely shiny tights and my boots! John said I looked lovely. I did buy a new coat though!! Has taken me weeks and weeks to find a coat I liked! So I was happy with that. I will add some pictures of the party in the week!


Here is my Joe celebrating his birthday with his two best friends! My Joe is the one in the middle if you didnt know! Happy birthday my baby!!

I hear you with the fashions these days - They say 40 is the new 30 (well I don't care for those styles either). I dress for comfort and if it turns out fashionable I win. Happy 13th Birthday "Joe". Hoping it was a happy one. Take care and enjoy your week ahead,
Katie

IT is hard finding clothes for our age.

Chrissie said...

I hate shopping too just because I don't like the way things fit and you're right at this age we don't get away with the girly looks anymore.
Happy birthday to your boy. Love the pic and the hand signs. Teens are the same all over the world. Mine always are making the peace sign in every picture.
Take care, Chrissie
