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.

  5. 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.

  9. 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

  13. 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.

  14. 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!

  15. 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!

  16. 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.
