A Breakfast Date

22 Aug

I had company for breakfast today.


2 hot drinks.


2 bowls of banana porridge.


All the fixings.


Perfect Porridge.

Who was my date?

It was the witch in this photo:


Otherwise known as my sister Caroline! We found this picture at the weekend but don’t remember these costumes, we only know they are us because those are definitely my ears! I have no idea why my trousers are hanging out below my bum, unless maybe I’m ahead of my time and trying out this look:

Either way it’s not a look I intend to model again!

Caroline stopped in for breakfast on her way home, it was lovely to have her in town for the weekend. Come back soon Sis! xx

I hope everyone had a great weekend!

What was the first Halloween costume that you remember rocking? Counting the Halloween pictured above I think I’ve been dressed as a cat on at least 5 different occasions!

    I just found your blog and I love it! Your post is so cute – especially the part about the baggy jeans;) You’ve got me curious about this banana porridge stuff. Yum.

    That oatmeal looks divine – I wish we had grape nuts in Australia! I only ever dressed up for Halloween when I was in the States, so ages 3-6… I think I was a tap dancer one year?!

    Hi there, just found your site and it’s great!

    The first Halloween costume I remember wearing was a cheerleader outfit, I remember loving using the pom poms.

    I made a mean witch with green eyeshadow and bin bag dress plus a pumkin which was actually carved from a turnip (or swede to those every where other than N.E England!) It must be autumn now if we are thinking about halloween!

      Turnips are turnips in Scotland too you know! Traditionally people eat turnips and potatoes with haggis on Burns Night. We say neeps and tatties though.

    I tended to request costumes that were either princess themed or animal themed. As I got older it got a tad ridiculous. One year my friends and I were the Spice Girls (oh, dear) and then I was mistaken as a boy when I dressed up like a hobo. Good times.

    awesome pic! i think i was mostly a princess when i was a kid. dress me up pretty, that’s all i wanted to do. they don’t really have Halloween in Australia though, isn’t that odd? at least they don’t do trick-or-treating. did you have that as a kid?

    It must have been nice to have your sister over for a breakfast date. I don’t think I have ever dressed up at Halloween – unless cutting two holes in a sheet and putting it over my head to become a ghost counts?!!

    The first Halloween costume I remember was being dressed at a “Big Stuff” oreo. My sister was “Little Stuff.” Maybe I remember because I’ve seen the pictures so many times?
