I’ve had a year of distraction between one thing and another. However this morning it feels like I’m the old me again. I didn’t wake ’til almost 09:00! don’t you love a Saturday that doesn’t start early? I’ve pottered about, had my breakfast. I’ve started to use almond milk on my porridge – it’s a flavour combo I think works well together and the almond milk also reminds me of the Horchata we had when we were in Valencia earlier this year. I’ve posted a photo over on my other blog Here, I’ve dipped into blog feeds I haven’t opened in months! and I have a blanket on my hook that is calling to me. I think all in all I’m starting to feel a lot more settled in myself and that makes me very happy. Now I’m off to do a little of my Duolingo (one of the things that has occupied my time for the last year – I’m on a 233 day streak!) and then I have to actually start the day.
Have a great Saturday and here’s a lovely picture to start your… Afternoon!
I love the work of Raymond Briggs! So it is with great joy and glee to read on the Ethel & Ernest blog that there is a trailer for the up and coming film by Lupus films. October 28th is now in the diary and I can’t wait!!!!
Yesterday I bought a “thing” – it’s a throw with a hood and mittens. It’s one of the softest things I have bought in a long time (normally it’s balls of wool). I spent most of the afternoon offering my purchase around for people to feel – it really is that soft!
When I got home I unwrapped it and posted a photo of me proudly sporting my new throw. I have to say when the evenings get cooler I really am going to be as snug as a bug!
I am so excited about this – it’s currently being used as a cushion, as it folds up into the hood – it really works as a comforter
Every Saturday morning I go through my instagram feed for the week, this is no small endeavour! Here is a selection of 4 – I love the way they dress their photos and their lighting is exquisite, they make me smile 🙂
I read in a book recently that it helps to make lists of things that make you happy in an effort to boost your mood. So I thought that as this blog is about things that make me smile, why not use it to boost my mood – your mood even.
Today is Thursday. For me Thursday was has been the day I treat myself. Twice in the last week I’ve seen the phrase of Cheat Day – I don’t think of it as cheat – more treat. All week long I’ve had a longing on me for a cream cake but I resisted, knowing that I would have it on Thursday. Had I had it when I originally wanted it, I probably wouldn’t have stopped at one! So as a reward for not going over the top – today I had a cream donut and it was delicious!
Today started rather good – himself has had surgery and it appeared to have gone well. However, later on it seems that there will be yet again another side effect we will have to possibly deal with 😦 It’s not a biggy as such but it’s disappointing that this has happened.
It is so beautiful! I love rain and snow so this book is book is right up my alley. I can’t tell you how excited I was to flick through the pages. My particular favourites are “Le petit chaperon rough, Paris” & “Velib, Paris”
If you like photography or weather then this is a definitely a book to get.
