7 days 7 positive things

Happy Friday all- again this week has gone so quickly! Time for me to look back on 7 great things from last week.

  • Last Friday night I had a great time. We didn’t do anything fancy, just stayed at home, ordered a take-away and played cards while listening to music. We also had a couple of drinks- which is very rare for me as I don’t usually drink alcohol. It was really good fun and just proves to show you don’t need much to have a good time.
  • On Saturday we went to Swansea and I discovered a new yarn shop thanks to my boyfriend’s brother- his ex-girlfriend was a knitter. This shop is fantastic!!! I managed to get some really cool buckles to make my own belts and some lovely chunky yarn. And they had wooden knitting needles for 50p!! Bargain!
  •  I was really naughty and I went to Hobbycraft on Sunday despite the awful weather and found a really good deal there: some Sirdar Balmoral (a mix of wool, alpaca and silk) at £1.99 a ball. I wasn’t happy with the wool I picked for my Sonnet cardigan and decided to try this one instead. So far, so good- but I haven’t started the box stitch yet! I also got some Sirdar Click which was from the same batch that I already had in my stash- lucky!
  • Last bargain find of the week: Phildar Rapido- a chunky yarn- on sale for £1.20 a ball online. Now I’m not allowing myself to buy any more yarn for a while, and will sell some of the ones I’m not going to use on eBay.
  •  I also treated myself to some Beauty product from Lush – more on this in a later post.
  •  I love old traditional tales so it’s been delightful to watch Jim Henson’s The Storyteller series- John Hurt is great as the storyteller and the animated dog is too cute!!
  • Finally, we’ve got a busy week-end ahead. Yes, my boyfriend’s brother is moving to his new place and we’ll give him a hand taking some stuff up there. And then, well... the spare room is mine again!! YEEEAAAHHH!!! 
Until next time,

Wow sounds like you've gotten some great bargains! The needles I'm especially envious of! You've reminded me of how long it's been since I've ordered some Lush (although I still have a fairly big stash upstairs!)...

OK, fess up about the LUSH product. Inquiring minds want to know.
