Little Madam

Say hello to the cheekiest little madam, Mika

Meet Mika
She's a 16 week old Russian Blue kitten. It is with a heavy heart I have to tell you that she's not mine. We stayed with my Grandmother this weekend for a family function and this is the latest addition to her household. She's cheeky, bold, highly inquisitive, active and ├╝ber difficult to get pictures of, so I decided video would probably be better.

The family function we were attending was my great Aunt and Uncle's golden wedding anniversary- a gathering in their garden complete with Thai buffet and assorted tents for cover, but we were suitably grateful that the weather was warm and dry. I got to show off my tan a touch further with my new favourite dress.

Dress, closing down sale in Bangor
Lightweight Jersey Blazer, ASOS
Sandals (not seen), Primark
Braclet, Primark
This is the first time I've worn it without something underneath or over the top of it, and it was great to get a chance to show off my tanned shoulders, although by the time we got round to taking these pictures (taken by The Guy, some rare full length shots!!!) it had cooled down enough to need my lightweight jacket-thing.

The jacket has been another wardrobe star. It's from ASOS from winter 09, and is more of a jersey cardigan type weight, but because it's cut as a blazer with the lapels, it's great for a slightly smarter alternative.

So that's me back for a while now. Having turned myself around after my holiday, done the relative thing at the weekend, and turned that around today, my parents are off away for a while tomorrow. I'm going to be based at home until I can find a more permanent job, and I have a few different things bubbling away on that front at the moment, but I'm currently working in quite a niche area of recruitment. I'm interested to hear from anybody else who has moved back to their family home having just finished a degree and how you're finding it? I'm going to be doing a bit of a post about it soon, and I'm interested to hear all sorts of perspectives on it. If you would rather, do e-mail instead of commenting- chloe.martinbrown@gmail.com

And a big hello to all EIGHTY of you old or new followers at Chloe Likes To Talk. Happy Reading.
