Today Evie and I got to spend the day in Newcastle with my Mum in Law (Sue) to get Evies school uniform ready for September.
I know – shes too little to be going to school, shes still my little baby girl 🙁
We got off the train and I took advantage of it being her first time on a train to nab a quick piccie! Can you tell there was a mirror behind me! haha
This is the bustle shirt I made (I had the perfect little red flower buttons to add to the back!) and she kept getting stopped by old ladies saying how girly and beautiful she looked. Little girls also kept gazing at her and were heard saying ‘mummy I love her dress’ – Evie said she felt like a princess! Im quite proud of my sewing efforts here! 🙂
We then headed up Grainger street and forgot there was a Forbidden Planet there! Evie got a Enderman (Minecraft) and carried it round for the rest of the day!
Nana Sue bought her Clarks shoes (flashing ones which she loves!) so she got to have her feet measured and got to walk around in shoes until she found the perfect ones.
We managed to find her a pinafore with little embroidered flowers and a flower tag on the zip and some white polo shirts that had little scallop collars and sleeves – I swear she was so uninterested in uniform shopping as the colours were grey/black! lol I’ve never seen a kid so picky over things that looked similar but at least we managed to find some things that were a little more floral(ish) and girlie! (Not sure how the PE dept are going to react to her Cath Kidston Trainers though! haha
We had a fabulous day out and thoroughly enjoyed our girlie day out, just the 3 of us!
We were treat to a delicious lunch in John Lewis, spent time looking around the shops before headed back on the train and Evie was completely worn out!
If you are reading this Nana Sue – Thank you so much from both of us!
