Do you ever wake up thinking 'Oh pants, it's Thursday. I hate Thursdays'?
(or maybe it's just me . . . )
You know those days when you have a lot to do and you don't really feel like doing it, but it has to be done. Thursdays are my paperwork days. Little Man goes off to nursery and I have to immerse myself in invoices, spreadsheets and bank statements. It's not my favourite way to pass the time, especially when it's the only bit of time I have had to myself all week!
Today was a little bit different.
Our lovely postie knocked at the door - which is usually a good sign. It means she has something to big to go through the letter box and as nasty bills generally come in skinny little envelopes!
I wasn't disappointed.
Look at all these goodies I received in the post today . . .
First up is my prize from the Twitter @craftyfolkEtsy giveaway . . .
A lovely selection of goodies from Lilly's Night Garden - some note cards with beautiful ethnic images, a gorgeous peacock note card in shades of blue (which, I think, will be saved for a special birthday) with glittery 'eyes' on it's sumptuous tail and a cute little trinket box with a butterfly motif on the lid. I love Dawn's shop on Etsy and I am already planning what I will use the 10% discount code she sent with my goodies. Thank you so much Dawn!
Secondly I got a lovely package from the One Stop Pamper shop . . .
Maryann has sent me two of her new fragrance candles in a tin to review. I'll say no more for now (apart from that they smell divine!) but keep a look out for that in the not too distant future.
Finally a brand new CD - Amy MacDonald's latest offering 'Life in a Beautiful Light' .
I love Amy's voice and her music so when I heard a few months back that she had a new CD coming out soon I quickly got on Amazon and pre-ordered. Although it wasn't forgotten, it was a lovely surprise when it arrived this morning :-) (and I am already on third listening)
So with my new CD playing and scented candle burning, and a little smile in my heart I got on with my work. And you know what? It wasn't actually that bad and my potentially yucky Thursday actually turned out to be quite lovely!
