Phew, thank goodness we can see grass and trees, the roads are finally clear and at 7 degrees it feels positively balmy! I never thought I'd hear myself say that. We went for a walk yesterday and you could (if you tried hard) think that Spring was round the corner. The birds were singing and the sun was shining. It didn't get much better.
I always try and stay positive during January, despite it not being at all a favourite month of mine. I have used the last few days to stop and look at the things which are making me smile and feel good.
These little lanterns came from the Laura Ashley sale and it was one of those purchases I thought I shouldn't have made, but now they are hanging on the fireplace, I'm really quite pleased.
Finished projects - I love completing things - something I don't get a chance to do. Intention is there but other events normally dictate. Having had the same cushion on the same green chair for years, I thought it could do with a change. Being into my patchwork and quilting at the moment, I seized the opportunity and made a new floral cushion. It's not perfect, but I'm more than happy.
Tesco came up top trumps with these plates - very Emma Bridgewater - I snapped up the last 4 which were reduced to £2. I love a bargain.
Last, but by no means least - my copy of Country Living which arrived last week, but I'll save that for a quiet time (hopefully!).
What makes you feel good during dreary January?
