So I'm having internet issues hence no posting for the last week :(

However I found some pretties for us to look at...
1. Beautiful paper pomander, 2. awesome macrame owl over at Violet Bella, 3. metallic paper garlands from Martha Stewart 4. paper ceiling decorations & 5. this amazingly quirky bookshelf spotted here.

I've had a pretty fun week. Went to see the fireworks last Saturday (Bonfire night) with Tom, his daughter & some friends. Monday Tom took me to a comedy night which I really enjoyed (Rob Deering headlined). On Thursday we went to a 1920's Prohibition evening which was fantastic! Everybody dressed up, it was just so much fun...

I'm second left in the first photograph & thats me & Tom in the second.

Now I'm in Kettering visiting my dad for the weekend...

Admittedly this is an old photo! What have you guys been upto?? xox

I moved into my new room a few months ago & haven't gotten round to doing much with it just yet, but with two weeks off work coming up I've been looking for some inspiration! Love these rooms all found on weheartit. Can't wait to get stuck in now!

Today I have promised myself to take the time to be more grateful. I have had quite a bit of discontent in my life this year, mainly centred around two things, my relationship & my job. The relationship I was in is now behind me & I'm lucky to be with an amazing, talented, gorgeous, funny guy, my Drummer Boy.

My job I have really been wrestling with. I no longer enjoy it but as it takes up so much of my time I kind of need to... & I used to. So I'm going to take tiny steps on a path that will hopefully lead me in the right direction, starting with being grateful.

I have a job.
I have a set salary.
I get fed every day!
I work with some fantastic people.
I have a mountain of food knowledge at my finger tips.
It's where I met DB :)

I'm healthy, I have a home, I have a salary, I have great friends, my family & a loving relationship.

I'm grateful xox

So I've missed blogging.. (previously you could find me here) mostly I've missed sharing my thoughts & creating pretty posts for people but also I've missed my fellow bloggers. I didn't realise how wrapped up in their lives i'd gotten until I stepped away.

Now I'm back at a new chapter in my life and a renewed determination to start crafting again and just keep doing the things that make me genuinely happy :)
