Today I'm grateful for...

  • A much needed lie in and getting up at nearly 10:00 am
  • Cosy cardigans and stylish yet comfortable boots
  • A random conversation with a stranger which brightened up a boring wait in a slow moving queue
  • A free mince pie to go with my Christmas coffee
  • Good news from my friends and family
  • Twinkling lights and beautifully decorated houses
  • The fact that my pesky cold seems to be on the way out (fingers crossed!)
  • A three day working week (I've been on holiday yesterday and today), then a full weekend off! :-) To say I'm excited may be a little understatement!!
What are you grateful for today? Drop me a line and let me know...can't wait to hear from you!

'Til next time...

Christmas is coming...

and I've definitely been in a festive mood over the last couple of days. Maybe it's down to the fact that we've started putting our Christmas decorations up or that I watched a local theatre company's pantomime yesterday afternoon. And it definitely could also be a result of the present wrapping, Christmas card writing and festive music listening I've been doing today. It might even be because of the chilly direction the weather has finally taken; there may have been the teensiest bit of snow last night which would mark the first of the winter here in Manchester. But whatever the cause of this Christmassy feeling, the result is still the same: a sense of contentment and good cheer that not even a pesky cold can dampen :-)

So in honour of my new found Christmas spirit, I thought I'd share a few of my favourite Christmas themed craft and decoration ideas from Pinterest...hope you enjoy!! Oh,and if you're a pinner too, let me know. Or follow me. Or better still, both!!
