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!
