thank you for both the Valentine wishes and positive thoughts for today. Appointment is over and done with, much thinking to be done but I’m glad this part is over.

Welcome to a new week! I cannot (and almost refuse to) believe it is mid-feb already.

Outfit wise today, I opted for something comfortable. Ignore the puffed out hair, I fixed that after.
Also dis-regard the miserable face, with only a couple of hours sleep it is little wonder!



I remembered to put jewellery on for once, including rings. I really need more chunky rings in my life.


The heart one is from Primark, and the silver one is from a local independant shop.

I also wanted to share my pretty new bed spread, just because I can


What are your plans for this week? A fairly quiet one here; the only solid plan I have is a baking day on Wednesday.

  1. Today’s a holiday in the U.S. for President’s Day, so I’m think I’m going to spend the time off work and clean my apartment. It’s so easy for that sort of thing to get out of hand!

    After that, it’ll be one of those typical, boring work weeks. πŸ™‚

    I know I’ve said it before, but I love your new haircut.

  2. Great outfit, Laura and I like the mussed-up hair, too. Green really suits your English rose colouring!
    What a pretty bedspread and I do like those rings on you.
    Keep positive, Babe, you’re an exceptionally brave lady!

  3. hey, i’m glad the appointment is over and done with for the moment anyway πŸ™‚

  47. Your hot water bottle is awesome! As is the bed cover, and I love that second ring.

    I am quite bad for jewellary, I wear the same thing over and over until I get sick of it then change it for something else to wear over and over, despite the fact I have heaps of pretty things I never wear.
