I'm not going to lie to you, these are getting harder to write. I'll blog my reasons for that tomorrow.

Today, however we shall find the silver linings...
1. My new found love of knitting! I am really enjoying it! So far I've made a scarf, fingerless mittens and I'm currently making a hat!

2. Payday! Money has been real tight lately so doing my shopping was a relief this week! I've started following some other bloggers and doing a meal plan, which honestly saved me a fortune on my bill this time.

3. My friends. One of my friends is having a clear out of her wardrobes and knowing my love of costume jewellery, she brought over what she didn't want or wouldn't wear......inside a giant bag of colourful scarfs!! I was like a kid at Xmas! It's been lovely rummaging through he bag all week, finding different scarfs to brighten a dull season xx 

So from a (trying to be) cheerful me, have a great week..

  6. I'd love to get into knitting, but I don't have the patience. I do believe that it can be very calming though, which has to be a good thing x
