Things that are making me smile

If I ever needed things to make me smile then it is today.
I have had that funny feeling that a bug is on its way, fuzzy head, aching bones...well on Saturday eve it totally arrived, runny nose that was actually running onto my lovely pillow case (sorry but honesty is the best policy). Sore teeth, earache, a throat that feels like a kangaroos jock strap, you get the picture.
I actually look ill, proper ugly!
Anyhows, I always like to force a smile and her are the things that are helping me down that path and onto the road to recovery.

This magazine is immense.
I have read it, page to page,and it is just beautiful.
I want to have adventures like the people in the stories.
Mr Betty and I have both been totally inspired.
If you can get it, do,

These little shoppers are ace.
Only £1.50 from Primark, it was to be merely an emergency receptacle but I am finding myself using it rather a lot.
E is for Emma by the way for that is my name.

Loving the fact that when Littlest suffers the overwhelming disappointment of  finding a girly mini figure within those little foil packets, he gifts them to me and my printers tray.
Just the fact that I am so happy to add to my collection seems to make the disappointment ebb away.....almost.

I am a cushion addict, there are no excuses. I can't even sit in most of the seating in my house at the moment for the bum area is so crammed with cushion loveliness.
It is not something I am going to seek professional help for as I don't actually care,

God I love these compact Japanese books.
I am building up quite a collection.
My plan was this. I decided I would cut back on my magazine frenzy and instead treat myself to one of these each month. I have stuck to 50% of my plan.
This one is Stockholm family style. I love the family style books the mostest and I have found much inspiration in this edition for my next interior challenge, Littlests bedroom.
Watch this space!

Thanks for reading, please wish my bug away for me. I hate being bedridden.
Mr Betty has gone to get me some treats.  X
