little things to make you happy this weekend

•Plan your breakfast for Sunday now and go get what you need! Maybe...

Banana pancakes (I sometimes make the batter the night before and keep it in the fridge till morning)


Breakfast crumpets (I had the mushroom ones and they are lush)

•Make a list of films you want to see, books you want to read and things you want to make to get you through the rest of the winter. 

I want to: see this, read this and paint a big stick using these as inspiration!

•Organise your hand bag, and throw in a few feel good treats. Maybe a bright and beautiful lippy you always forget to wear, a gorgeous hand cream, a new note book, a photo of your lover, a couple of left over chocs from Xmas...

Screw it, mine's getting filled with all of the above. 

Have a fun weekend!


  1. Ooh, these are such great tips - I love the hand-bag one in particular! Such a nice way to make every day feel a bit more glamorous, I think! :) Thank you for all your fabulously cheering posts in 2013 so far - I do adore reading them. :) xxx

    1. Oh, thank you! That's sweet of you to say so. My hang-bag is intimidating me this morning, It has so much crap in it! But I shall face my demons and make it lovely by the end of the weekend, I swear. X

  2. Ah, I have already started on the 'Things to get me through the Winter' list, as we all have the January Blues big time in Shepherd Towers. Blah! I'm taking Wilf to see Les Miserables as my first outing.

  3. Ooo, have fun. I'm going Tuesday. See you next week I hope. X

  4. Those sticks look gooood to paint! I'm not sure my elc poster paints will have quite the same effect....?! Saw the tove jansson documentary over Xmas.... I remember you inspired me to read the summer book last year... Very interesting lady she was. X
