Hi there. So what about this sunshine? I don't know about you but when that sun is shining I am filled with ideas and excitement before I even open my eyes, which is why it really, REALLY sucks to have the crappiest immune system ever!
I am ill again!!!
This is getting sooooo boring. My house has so many messy spots which I am noticing more and more every day. I have redecorated at least 10 times in my head since being laid up.
I have spent thousands!
I have won the lottery, all different amounts and planned how to spend it and deliberated on how deserving family and friends are and how much they will get.
I have been on about 20 different holidays, some with kids and some without...
I have bought so many pretty things that in reality I can't afford. I have made Pinterest boards which display these desires...even made a holiday one(a girl can dream).
I have made soooo many cakes(and eaten them) and my decorating skills would put Cake Boss to shame hehe!
Obviously in reality I have been lay in my bed or on the sofa, feeling sorry for myself, crocheting and moaning. I have been drinking tea and eating out of boredom!
I have been enjoying marathon programme catch up. Mainly Call the Midwife and Sewing Bee, that has been one good thing. I am longing to learn to use my machine and Sewing Bee doesn't help this longing!
I think it is safe to say I am a little worn out with my own company.
I have been popping in and out of blogland and seeing all your lovely posts but I am so worn out that I get through some and then doze off again.
I have made a concious decision this morning after waking up without the ability to swallow and discovery of white spots on the tonsils, to spend the morning typing(albeit moany typing) on my little blog and upload some of the photos I have been snapping away at.
My little bug. We went to the cinema over the weekend(I started feeling really poorly half way through Muppets Most Wanted) he had to take Fluffy and Mickey with him and they thoroughly enjoyed it.
Something that has been a source of mindless entertainment...it gets boring very quickly!
Some flowers to cheer a girl up :)
The garden is getting a mini makeover. Just something to make this very small and ugly yard a little less of an eye sore!
More bright, beautiful flowers.(both bunches were reduced and count as medicine for sure)
New wool storage...
Cute retro Pop bottles...little in love...
So there are some of the nice things about the last few days.
I haven't been too bad with my frugal March.
I have looked for bargains everywhere. I spent a lot of money on my food shop, but I managed to buy enough for over 2 months for £400. I know that sounds like a lot but for a family for 2 months and it includes meat and all cleaning/household products, I am quite chuffed!
These pop bottles are a sparkling £2 each from Tesco, which is a bargain I think. They have a lovely range at the moment with all this gorgeous coloured glass and some stunning pastel cookware(which definitely did not become part of my March)
Wilkinsons also have some gorgeous coloured glass products including Kilner jars. Again I haven't indulged as they really couldn't be justified.
I know you may think that these bottles can't be but they can I just can't go into details...yet!
(My crochet ta-dahs can't be shared right now either :( )
But a sneaky peek wont hurt ;)
ooooo and another little tip. Right now we are in garden stuff season. Now, if like me you are not the greatest gardener but still find yourself browsing these aisles then despair not.
Garden paraphernalia is usually a lot cheaper than pretty indoor decor.
The bucket I am now using for yarn storage is a gorgeous pastel green and has the wooden embellishment on the handle. It was £4 in the garden section at Tesco!!! £4! If this was an indoor decorative item you would be looking at upwards of £10.
I also use a lot of string in my crafts and for wrapping and twine is perfect...gorgeous twine holders are EVERYWHERE at the moment and they are really reasonably priced.
Keep an eye out people x
Happy Tuesday xxx
