Happy Halloween!

It is rather unusually here in the bleak North,a glorious mild,sunny Autumn day,I am hoping the temperature remains kindly for tonight,when as usual we shall participate in a spot of 'trick or treating' I remember last Halloween being absolutely frozen to the bone! so fingers crossed.
Whatever you have planned for this eve of all Hallows,I hope it involves eating delicious nibbles,a glass of something cheering and lots of fun!

Be very afraid!

Retail therapy!

I love shopping! who doesnt? but often I find myself hankering after some ridiculous frivolity,that I neither need nor can afford,but isnt it just super when you stumble across something that just screams "buy me! buy me!" and you can! well here are my latest "gotta have it" buys, it started with the union jack door mat....

Followed by the cutest polka dot reindeer...I know...a tad early,but had I not bought it I would have lost sleep!

Finally....and indulge my eccentricity here, Jesus plasters! could I NOT have bought these!

Ok, tomorrow I will buy regular stuff,toilet rolls,milk,coffee etc...maybe a few tins of barbie shaped spaggetti !......No,there is no hope for me!

Rainy days....

Boy is it raining here today! and as they do say in these here parts "It never rains but it pours" yes indeedy,My oven is on its last legs,the back garden fence is coming down,the bath needs re enamelled and the dogs need their hair cut.I am starting to shift into panic mode because it is only 9 weeks!!! until Christmas and I have not even attempted to start my Christmas shopping (have you? do tell! even if it will make me feel worse) I think I may have one of those seasonal disorders,you know S.A.D,because on dull days like today I sort of feel a little crazy!

Please let there be sunshine tomorrow!
