The 2nd Half of MeMadeMay17

No don’t rub your eyes, you have read correctly, and yes I am that behind! No apologies necessary, absent friends don’t need to do that….right?  I hope so! I’m here, I’m back and I’ll just get on with it! You can read the first instalment of MeMadeMay HERE.  With me writing this so late I’m just so pleased I posted on IG otherwise it would be a struggle writing this! Day 18 & 19 – I worked 10-20 so it was uniform all day.  If I’m starting earlier or later I do tend to wear ‘my own’ clothes either before and after my shift but with this rubbish shift it’s all work, PJs then bed.  But my trusty Brooklyn Hoodie saves the day when I need me made on a work day – this was made with a colleague’s old fleeces that were destined for the bin!

Me Made May Already!!

An hour and a half to me made may and I’ve not made my pledge yet. So here goes….. Here’s my 3rd time, and I Ali aka Thimbers of will endeavour to wear me made clothes every day, at least one, and hopefully all! I am also going to try and post my pics daily on IG and hopefully pinterest, which is easier said than done! Thanks Zoe! Me Made May Rocks!!
