She's such a cutie! I think she gets annoyed with me constantly taking photos and singing to her, but that's just how I roll.
Hehe, see what I mean?!
It's starting to get sunny (although still freezing cold at night), the daffodils are poking their heads out and my broccoli is almost 10 feet tall already (I may be exaggerating a little...). Spring always makes me excited and happy!
In my afternoon break between work duties, I went home and made bread. Just the smell is enough to make everything feel that little more homely and lovely. Hmm, might nip downstairs for some toast and jam!
Something about wearing a hat really makes me feel better! Here's my favourite one from last week...
5. Making things
I go through phases of productivity when it comes to making things, and this is definitely a productive phase. At the weekend, I changed a too-small dress into a most lovely blouse (must get photos!). And I'll hopefully be starting on my dress tomorrow for a dance at the end of the month.
6. Audio books
Hehe, I'm such a nerd! I find listening to people talk really relaxing, so audio books are a mainstay in my life... at the moment, I'm listening to 'The Seven Dials' by Agatha Christie (and read by the beautiful Emilia Fox). Next up is a double bill of Raymond Chandler! Highly recommend Audible for anyone who nerds it up like I do :)
7. South Riding
This is a 3-part series that's just finished on the BBC. I've yet to catch up on the last episode, but so far it's been fab. It's all about a 'radical' headmistress in the 1930s. Some of the outfits are just beautiful.
I want this suit! [image and more info from here]
And this hat! [image from here]
8. Ginger wine and apple juice
All the hard work from the last week or so has put me a little bit under the weather, and my voice is always the first thing to go. Ginger wine and apple juice makes my throat feel so much better, and is just so tasty.
9. A film noir video game?
I like playing video games... sometimes. It doesn't enthrall me the way a lot of things do, but when I like a game, boy do I like it! I've just seen this is about to be released, and am already preparing for what could be a good few weeks of hermit-like behaviour...
10. Curling up in bed with a cup of tea, the kitten and an episode of Foyle's war
Which is exactly what I'm going to do now :)
What makes you happy when you've had a bad day?
