Morning! The morning after a Today’s Special Value launch is always a slow one, I’m not a night owl and even back in the days when I used to sing, I’ve always struggled with going to bed late. Saying that, this morning’s sunshine was a joy to wake up to! I even managed to sit outside with my coffee and Kindle. Yes, Kindle! I know, I never thought you would hear me say that, as I’ve always been a pen and paper girl, I still use a Filofax and I still love to turn pages. However, I have stumbled upon the virtues of the Kindle, and as one of my goals for 2022 is to read one classic per month, it really helps as the app is also on my phone, which means I can pick up and read whenever I have a few minutes to spare, whereas it’s typical that the physical copy is often where I’m not when I get a few mins spare. I just finished George Orwell’s 1984 this morning. Boy, oh boy, did he get a few things right! It’s terrifying! By the way, in this picture I’m wearing the White Stuff Annie shirt, which comes in various colours, my daughters old jeans and the Vionic high-top trainers I talked about in my last blog – still loving them!
I am so looking forward to spring. I don’t know about you, but I bought a few exciting pieces during our gardening event last weekend. I’ve done loads of pruning and tidying in the garden and can’t wait to see all the plants and bulbs come to life. Although, behind me, I’ve got a hideous bramble that I fight every year to keep away from the rose. I’ve got tulips popping up everywhere in beds, and other shoots that I can’t even remember what they were, so that will be a lovely surprise too. We have decided to grow passion flower up the back of the house and so I popped them into this planter (here’s a similar one) along with a few flowers I picked up in the garden centre and some daff bulbs that I found sprouting in a plastic bag that I had forgotten about. The flowers were already out, so fingers crossed they survive!
So, a little bit more gardening for me today as my planters from the garden event have just arrived and then tomorrow I’m back in for the Laura Geller Springtime Essentials TSV, so I look forward to seeing you then. In the meantime, I hope you get kissed by some sunshine over the next few days.
Love as always,
