Well, not a lot of any great importance going on round here but I still thought I'd put fingers to keyboard and report anyway.
An assortment of stuff here to say the least. Starting top left and moving on clockwise.
- Last weekend my lovely sister in law, Brenda, gave me a sweet little Wedgewood bud vase which matches the little vase she gave me some time ago. Also, showing are my two winter cyclamen, aren't they lovely? They were just £1 each from Morrisons. Good value don't you think?
- William, busy repositioning pictures and my Portmeirion plates on the kitchen walls for me.
- A little reminder of what's just around the corner.
- I spotted this little Father Christmas night light in Costco yesterday and had to bring him home with me.
- I paid a visit to Housing Units and rather liked this leather sofa. I think we'll be buying a new 3 piece suite in the New Year.
- This afternoon my girls came round with their boys to visit. The boys turned my dining room into a zoo. I play the zookeeper, George and Charlie are monkeys and Nicholas is always a guard dog!
- Gary came round a little later with their little dog.
- It's a mad house here at times.
- I wouldn't have it any other way.
- The little Father Christmas and the Wedgewood vase are my Simple Pleasures this week.
Yesterday afternoon I snagged a couple of bargains. The frame was £5, you'd pay a lot more than that in somewhere like John Lewis. I found this one in a curtain factory shop. I had no idea they sold things like that. The book was 40p in a local charity shop and the Guinness As Usual mug was in the same shop.
Guinness is a favourite tipple of mine and that's why this little cup caught my eye. When I discovered it was actually made in Ireland and was only 30p I brought it home with me.
So, why the title? Well, I bought the purple fleece you see in the picture yesterday. When I came home I changed out of my "good" clothes into some more comfortable clothes. I reached into my drawer and chose a purple sweater to wear and what was I taking off? - yep, a purple sweater!
The poem Warning, When I Am An Old Woman I Shall Wear Purple by Jenny Joseph immediately came to mind. Click on the link to read the poem, - I'm sure it'll bring a smile to your face.
