Welcome to my new follower Lorraine.

In the lounge here we have twelve spot lights in the ceiling , they do have a dimmer switch but they are still too bright, I have been wanting to get one of these uplighters for a while.

You know the saying everything comes to those who wait.

I found this lovely one, as new off of Freecycle. 

Just the job, I love it.

Today hubby and son had to go up to the town together to do their Christmas shopping, I tagged along as we don't go up the town that often, I thought I could have a little browse on my own.

Now I am a very tolerant and patient person, but today I could have strangled several people, the town was packed, people pushing, shoving, you get the picture.

I wish I had stayed at home.

I had a look in the Charity shops, I didn't find anything in there, and then I just went to Poundland and Wilko, to get a few things.

I found a Niger Seed feeder and some Niger Seed in a bid to lure the Goldfinches into the garden, Some nuts for the blue tit and a little treat for my two friendly Robins.

Just a few basic Card Making supplies.

I love these Sparkly Embellishments from Poundland.

You can also find some nice books.

I do like a bit of Nail Polish, found these two today.

And that was that for me I had enough, so went and waited in the car, hubby and son where gone a very long time.

They have gone in the bedroom with the paper and sellotape. :-)

Tommorow we are going out to get the fresh bits, like veg, cream, cheese etc.

Then we can relax.

So are you all sorted now?


  1. Christmas is very low key here this year. I just changed my mind about what the vegetarian centrepiece will be this afternoon, so I guess I'm as ready as I'll ever be. I've reached that stage where it's only one day, well two if you count Boxing Day.

    1. Yes, I am with you keep it simple its only a few days.

  2. I try to avoid the shops at this time of year too. You got some good finds especially the bird things :-)

    1. It was worth the stress to get some treats for my feathered friends, x

  3. Christmas is in the kitchen here, all done and dusted. I hate shopping when it is crowded so i will not be going into one until I absolutely have to.

  4. I'm never sorted until the last minute I'm afraid but have given up worrying about it. My fantastic children just say think of it as a mega Sunday! What a brilliant find for you on freecycle, that nice a find would keep me happy for weeks. Jane xx

  5. Well if it works for you.
    Have a good one, x

  6. Nice lamp, looks like it has a lovely glow.

    I just need some potatoes then I'm all ready to go.

    1. Thankyou I love the lamp, nice to know you are all sorted.
