Ethel & Ernest

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!!!!

Snuggled Up

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

4 on Instagram

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 🙂

If I Was A Cat I’d Purr

There are two things I love about getting my hair cut:-

  1.  Somebody washing my hair.  As the title suggests it really would make me purr, if I won the lottery this would be my luxury – having somebody wash my hair.  There is something so soothing about it.
  2. I no longer do a rather good impression of an old English Sheepdog  – think Dulux Dog!

As part of the eternal list of things I like, yesterday I got my hair cut.

Here’s how it turned out – I’m also rather impressed with the photos – who knew it was difficult to photograph the back of your own head!!

Cake!

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!

CAKE
I wonder what will be next weeks reward…
