#50 Daily Writing Journal: Happy Valentine's Day! A few of my favourite things.

Happy Valentine's Day!


A few of my favourite things

My first blog feature from the schedule and I'm sharing four of my favourite things.

My Mulberry red wine purse 


My purse is about three or four years old. I tend to get high-end purses and bags because they last longer than just high fashion ones. Also because I needed something that could take some manhandling as I stuff it with things. In my early twenties I would get inexpensive purses only for them to fall apart after a year, so I started to invest in my purses and handbags. 

Before this, I had a Mui Mui purse but it got rather tatty as it had patent leather patchwork but after a few years it frayed so I decided the next replacement would be pure letter. I save for my purses and get them in the sale.

My Neals Yard Aromatic Diffuser


This was my Christmas gift from Sis and it served me well during my horrible recent cold. A few drops of essential oils.

My MacBook and Mug


The MacBook was a Christmas gift from Sis as well. It's a few years old and I got the fine china mug in a Christmas sale years ago. I've still got two. I tend to drink herbal teas out of them.

I guess that's it for this post.

Daily Writing Journal: Mo Money Challenge - week 8 which means £8 in the tin!

£8 in coins So I'm on my second week on saving and still not sure. I'm not feeling the pinch per se, but it's hard thinking how am I going to maintain this. So I managed to get a few coins out and gather some change, but at some point I'll really need to organise this. I've put in four fifty pence pieces with come up to two pounds sterling and the rest in pound coins.  Remember the money tin from last week. Well it all went inside that.... How am I feeling? Slightly bored but I still have a long way to go..... Saving money is boring, spending is more interesting.

HAPPY NEW YEAR! HAPPY 2022! My year of decluttering my creativity!

Happy New Year, Everyone! This was a quiet one, after watching two films last night I called it a night and woke up in the New Year. What films you ask? Guess Who with Bernie Mac, Ashton Kutcher and a lot of cringe worthy jokes. Then I watched Aloha with Bradley Cooper, Emma Stone, this was bit better. It had strong moments but I could see why they said it didn't really have any direction. Was it a romance? Was it a military story? It was hard to say what the movie was...a lesson in premise and precision but it gave a nice fluffy feeling and I must say Emma Stone did a brilliant job and so did John Krasinski - he acted with heart.  However it's a nice film and I learn a lot from it, but I think it would have missed the market because there were too many theme or subplots or whatever. Overall a brilliant cast, great acting but the story struggled with doing too much.  Decluttering My Creativity  This year, I'm focusing on decluttering my creativity in the sense of completing
