Woke up today and it was beautiful and sunny – a perfect day for a walk around the Swan. It’s real chilly though so big scarf and owl mittens needed – crisp and bright 🙂
It may seem odd to buy summer shoes in these conditions but i saw these bad boys in one of the charity shops so thought why not? They were only £3.50 and they’re real leather an suede – had a laugh with the shop people about buying them when it was so cold outside but i reckon these little guys are gonna be with me for a long time! Mega comfy!
And then a trip to the new Poundland reminded me of some advice from a friend – and i bloody LOVE a Poundland.
I’m trying to save money and Laura Hall was telling me about the way she keeps any £2 coins she gets in a jar and that way you’ve alwys got a bit of extra cash if you need it – but if you leave it for a wile they really add up so got the little Postie money box – plus had two £2 coins in my purse so was able to put some in from the start – plus new diary and some bead pens 🙂
Last night we went to The Kazimier for The Darktown Strutters Ball – it was ace! Out in the garden – it was cold but they had the bonfires on so warm myslef like a hobo next to them – plus now my scarf smells like bonfire which i really like – it was good to be able to dance to Sidney Bailey’s No Good Punchin Clowns and The Flamin’ Mamies without the usual squeeze in Peter K’s.
I love The Kazimier garden as well – i’m getting some out the big outdoor carnival fairy lights they have for my garden – add that to the chiminea and we’ve got right cosy night time garden times 🙂
