This Week's News

♥  I have a large spot on my chin.  My son keeps creeping up on me and lunging for it - he's a squeezer and can't understand why I'm not.

♥  I bought a 99p bunch of daffodils and divided them between three Ikea glass bottles and have thoroughly enjoyed the effect.

♥  I have filled three large bags (so far) with clothes and ephemera, which I shall shortly be taking to the local Air Ambulance charity shop.

♥  I bought new underwear.  It's one of my 'things' - if my underwear is pretty and my jewellery is sparkly, I think I can cope with almost anything.

♥  I have eaten too much beige food and am convinced this is in no small way contributory as far as the first item is concerned.

♥  I spent a solid hour going through my emails and unsubscribing from mailing lists that I, frankly, can't remember subscribing to in the first place.

♥  Being a grown-up has scared me a little.

  1. What a pretty cushion, love the colours. Just bought some more daffs, bit of Spring in the house xx

  2. I love the cushion! So cute and you are lucky to be able to create your own patterns for things. I am glad you had such productive week :-)

  3. Your No 1 comment made me laugh. Have a good week. xx

  4. Very pretty pictures - those daffodils look great like that!

    Funny that you mentioned unsubscribing from emails - I've been trying to do a lot of that lately to reduce the clutter in my inbox, and have only just published a post on it on my minimalism blog:


    Spoiler - the 'simple step' - is to unsubscribe! ;)

    Hope you got to the bottom of your clothes dilemma for your new job.

  5. Much as it's good to have photos of everything I'm glad you chose that picture of your gorgeous cushion instead of the spot on your chin! Love those daffy bottles x Jane

  6. Ha ha,love your sense of humour,I am a squeezer too soreeee lol.LOVE that cushion,my you are soooo neat,great colours too.Love the daffs.Happy Weekend and Happy Week ahead.xx

  7. Heather you are a girl after my own heart! Gotta have pretty undies. Yes indeedy!! I love the cushion and daffs. So simple but yet so pretty!! I hope you have a lovely weekend. :)

  8. I love your new cushion. I've got a little manky round cushion that is crying out for a new cover, I've got to get cracking and make one soon. I have to side with your son on the squeezing front much to my hubbie's horror! :) xx

  9. Lovely cushion!! I really like the daffodils too!! xx

  10. Your cushion is so pretty. I would love to know where you got a round insert for it, I can't seem to find round ones in the craft stores here.

    1. Thanks Jennifer. I buy my inserts from here … http://www.design-a-cushions.co.uk/round_cushion_pads.htm. Hope helps! x

  11. I'm a squeezer. Gross but oh so satisfying (ick).
    Love the colours of your cushion, very effective :)

  12. You do make me smile....my youngest is about to turn 18 soon (a girl, yikes, the boys were easy!) and she is not happy about being a 'grown up' ;o)

    PS: After awful teenage years she is on citalopram and it has made a huge difference.

  13. I am sorry for your spot misfortune my dear but on the other hand I must it's a relief to know that I'm not the only person who still suffers with these things at... 'our age'! You are probably right about the beige food though, I have been a lot better since we've been on our 2015 health kick. Oh and don't be a grown up too too often will you? It should only be a part time affair!

  14. I love your photos. That close up daffodil is gorgeous. I am unsubscribing from all sorts at work and then trying not to subscribe to anything I don't want on my new home email. It takes hours and is boring, but I think that ultimately it is worth it, even if it is a bit grown up!

  15. I love the cushion I have been looking for a simple to crochet but impressive looking pattern to add to my cuddle/crochet chair for ages now!
    Ni xx
    p.s as a proud welsh girl you can't beat a bunch of daffs to brighten up your day.

  16. The daffodils just look gorgeous and I absolutely love your cushion :)


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. Anyone ever told you that you're a peach? xx
