OK... Show and tell... an outfit you say...

this is less an outfit and more the uniform I have worn for the four months of maternity leave and every weekend since having Jasper. t-shirt from Sportscraft - because it covers my arms, I like a collar and it's white so when my boobs leak it's easier to hide, because I love Sportscraft and i bought it when i bought clothes for returning to work in February. i have it in blue and green from last season as well, and a white one that has lost all its elasticity and is now more a greyish colour. I'm all class, I know. shorts from Target - one size too big because I did overestimate the weight gain - but I'm still on the last belt notch of the fat belt to hold them up. Birkenstocks - which I would wear and almost do - even to work where I then change into my heels. That I love, but can't walk great distances in, let alone to the daycare centre and back the hundred times a day that I do... bedroom - that my cleaner reckons resembles a uni student bedroom with unmade bed, loads and loads of washing, ugly rug and all the rest.

Looks like my summer uniform, only with my happy red shoes from Ray's camping and one of two swirly skirts instead of the shorts. And a different shirt, but apart from that it looks just like me.

Oh, and stains - I have lots more stains.

Bugger, I really am going to have to take an outfit shot now.

You look good. I think I might look something a bit like you if I were to lose about 50 lbs. I gained about 12 lbs almost instantly when I stopped lactating. Not good!

Oh how I wish I could wear sandals like that with the toe thingy, but I just can't handle that feel.

How great that you can visit your wee one during the day. My daycare is 45 minutes from my office. :( But only 10 minutes from my home.

My current daytime outfit consists of pyjamas - the ones i had on yesterday or, more likely, the day before. There's just no time to change, as I sit at my laptop and work furiously for hours on end. To me, you are a fashion plate!

OK, what was all the fuss? I think you look FINE, and that's the sort of thing I wear 2 out of 3 days.

So, you know, if you *insist* upon insulting yourself, move over and I'll join you in Frumpville, 'kay?

Yeah, the leaking boobs take a lot out of a person. Which reminds me, I am all out of nursing pads. Not good.

I love those shorts - not too short, not too long. And I consistently purchase shorts that are too big for me as I find them more comfortable (and often in the men's department).

I also love that you posed near the laundry - how apropos.

Plus - I am not weeping.

Honey, you look beautiful! And your bed? It's MADE UP! And the laundry? It's FOLDED!

The only think missing is the socks for your Birks. ;) I find my Birks get so foot-stinky if I don't wear socks, they would bring tears to a Buzzard's eyes! Hence, the socks...I scour the bottoms of the Keen's about every 3 days with Meyer's Lemon Verbene Laundry detergent.

And UGH. Some low-life jerk off has spammed you.

how ironic we were spammed by playboy on this post...

and what, pray tell is the use of WV if it doesn't work?

It may have been some human desperate who answered a "Want to make BIG BUCK$ FA$T??" ad and then paid $200 by credit card for an email that tells him to go around a thousand blogs a week and insert spam using word verification...
Really, we should pity him.

Or her.

Or admire them for actually being able to crack the WV, which defeats even us honest types (especially when they use iis that look like jjs).

But instead I've deleted it, $O $UCKED IN, $PAMMER!!!

You look very comfortable to me. I love capri pants. I also think nothing looks more perfect than a nice white shirt of any style.

Dude? You look awesome! Don't fucking sell yourself short all the time. You look like a WOMAN and fuck anyone who can't deal with that.

Oh, and I have totally been drinking! Can you tell? It makes me cuss EVEN MORE. I won't take it personally if you totally delete this. The sentiment remains.

Oh dear Badger, don't you know us at all?

We fuckin' love to cuss. We blog to cuss. (We try not to do it in front of our respective children, you see). (Which means we have to do it here). (Because, in the worlds we live in, only a good explosive fuck from time to time makes it worthwhile.)

Good thing I was parenthetic there - else someone may have read it the wrong way.

(While I've been typing this I've had the Pea Princess voluntarily correct herself from saying 'bum' to 'bottom' - see how prissy I try to be with my kids?)

Hurry up and post something else, Kim, so no one gets to read this comment.

(And yes, Badger, I've been drinking too!)

Yeah, what Badger said but with less profanity and alcohol.

And I am so bloody jealous that you're in short sleeves, shorts, and thongs. In April. Me? I am in explorer socks, ugg boot slippers, thermal underwear and a big aran jumper. And my fingers are cold as I type this cos the open fire is in the NEXT room, not my study.

Oh, I'm also jealous that you can afford real birkenstocks. I have to make do with the fakes from Target.

I will endure 'budget' on anything but what goes on my feet.
The end.

I sooo would have been joining Badger and Bec in the drinking stakes, but my head hurts bad with a migraine I believe may have been triggered by the solitary glass of red I had last night. O.n.e. glass.

Maybe my head has gone out in protest it wasn't a bottle.

The irony of this photo is that my boobs don't look that big. Hilarious.

Your boobs AREN'T THAT BIG, Dolly.

And besides, like Vickee says, no matter what your cleaner thinks - the bed is made and the laundry folded. This is SO not a dormitory room.

this is the cleaner you have to follow behind in order to scrub the bathroom floor yourself, right? With a toothbrush? Yet you'll trust her opinion of your bedroom. Sigh.

Also, the rug does not appear ugly from here. We need more evidence to denounce the rug.

Yes. Still drinking.

it's one of those persian rugs that I inherited from Mum. I hate it. So not my style.

The bedroom has:
- king size bed with mismatched linen (GOD how I DREAM of having nice linen) and no bedhead (OH how I DREAM of having a bedhead)
- wire basket drawers as bedside tables (Ikea. Naturally)
- teenage-like bedside light - you know the ones, with a bendy arm.
- one cot
- one ancient chair I dream of getting recovered that is currently covered in. .. . BLACK VINYL.... which happened to it in the 1970s.

That's it.

No, the comment (which I completely agree with) came from our friend who runs the cleaning company (and did the nursery room makeover and wants to do the same for our bedroom) said so - and she cleans like some sort of magician, which spoilt us forever. Her staff who clean now, no matter how hard they try, do not come close to her prowess with cleaning products.
