Sitting at the sewing machine, windows all open and the wee birdies are chirping away ☀️💕
.

Martyn’s down in Malin working for afew days so it’s just me and the girls tonight, in my head I’m planning a lovely chilled evening, watching a movie with hot chocolates, maybe even painting their nails, before putting the little angels to bed and having a nice quiet bubble bath 🥰
.
.
In reality it probably won’t go down like this but I’m holding out hope......🙌🏻🙈

The one saving grace for this pot is the tiny flash of pistachio glaze. Every pot has a silver lining?? #evertheoptimist

Yes, please! Oh, maybe not.

That thing about never meeting your heroes. I thought they were bigger, more comfortable and could swing back a bit when you sat in them. But if you fancy buying me one, this spec (black leather and rosewood) but with a matching footstool. Thanks. #evertheoptimist

This white Scabious spent last summer in a container outside the front door. This year it's planted out in the garden so I'm hoping that it's going to get bigger and flower more profusely.  I'm an eternal optimist🤞

I hate it when that happens.
I hope I live to see the day where people look back on this period in time and scoff at the idea that some believed everything they read online #haha #evertheoptimist #useyourlibraryonline #checkyoursourses

Back to my happy place (another $3 well spent, this time on ciabatta) on this cold and kind of crummy day.  Annoying work request from people who think they're your top priority? ✔️ Unfinished projects, with deadlines looming? ✔️ Laptop issues that are likely going to be 💸💸💸? ✔️ As much as this all sucks, it's going to be okay. Also, we're having ciabatta with our dinner tonight. #evertheoptimist #carblover

Ever the... || I love how the Gannel (beautiful estuary on the edge of Newquay, Cornwall) boats just casually hang out along there. Most definitely the opposite of a glamorous marina, where everything is for show. This place is home to a set of chilled out water crafts that are very at ease with themselves. Hope they're squaring up to #stormfreya which is kicking around them all right now and is all set to hammer her wrath harder as the day goes through

No idea how I managed to run a 10km in January. Started to run for LISS sessions last week.

My local Waterstones ordered a new batch of books, always satisfying, so I popped in to see where they were being displayed. Turns out A Long Goodbye is directly below new fellow Jersey resident and multi-million best-selling author, @peterjamesuk. 
I wonder which pile will go down quicker? 😇😬

I am *very* over the snow. As discussed, it’s terrible for business and my bod is really feeling all of this shoveling. AND ALSO, I’ve honestly got it pretty good and there’s really a lot to be thankful for. So, here are some things I’m grateful for... snowy weather edition... .

For the maintenance man from my building fixing the handle on my favorite shovel. .

For my boots that are always warm and waterproof. And, for all my cold weather gear. .

For the lady that told me I do a good job shoveling this AM even though I’ve felt very behind the last few weeks. .

For the ability to not be in charge of snow removal at my shop. .

For a car that handles snow very, very well. .

For having a spot in the lot this year and not having to find parking on these snowy streets. .

For social media and the internet and people who are wonderful enough to buy things from my shop even if it’s too snowy to come in. .

For my heated blanket. .

For how excited we’ll all be when this passes. .

For how beautiful the snow can be. And, how much it feels like home. .
