Here I sit in my comfy bed, hubby having gone to work (poor thing) thinking about nothing in particular other than what I want to do next. I am already on my second cup of freshly ground coffee. This is a true luxury and one we allow ourselves everyday. We have a little coffee grinder, a caffitiere and thats it. No instant coffee allowed.
As I was contemplating I happened to glance over to the untidy pile of stuff on the bed and like a lightening bolt I realised that what lay there was a snap shot of me.
There was the brand new bedding I intend to put on as soon as I prize myself out of the existing covers.
I bought this set from Morrisons one day when I was shopping. It was totally on a whim and as soon as I got it home I realised that although it was me to a tee; patchwork, flowers and spots - it was never going to look right in our bedroom which is cream and beige with french look furniture. However I couldn't bring myself to take it back and so today is the day that it will go on our bed regardless of the clash of trends and colours.
A crochet book I have just found on the bookshelf that I had forgotten I had. I do this alot. I buy a book that I just can't live without. Bring it home and then instantly forget that I ever bought it. I have on occasion re-bought the book which is utter madness.

My favourite healthy eating book.
Paula's note book just waiting to be opened and written in.
The elephants were in the form of the fabric I used and she loved it.
My glasses which are so much part of me I forget sometimes that I am wearing them and try to put my others over the top of them. Very silly I know.
My laptop. I am nothing without my laptop. I love the internet especially Pinterest where I can lose myself for hours. This was a present from hubby for my 50th birthday and as I am a few years older now I suspect I will soon need a new one.
And finally the book I am just about to start reading.
I read my first self help book over twenty years ago. It was How to win friends and influence people by Dale Carnegie and it changed my life. I wouldn't say I follow everything in these types of book but there is always something to take away and think about and if just one thing helps to improve your life I think that is just fine. Hubby says that I always seem to be searching for something but it's not quite like that. I am not an unhappy person but I have a feeling that there is something more to this life and as yet I haven't found it. Maybe one day I will but today I certainly found a little bit of what makes me tick right there in a pile of stuff.
