Oh dear,
Being out alot last week has caught up to me!
Sore throat + sniffly nose = Yuk!
I don't think I have ever consumed so much water, lemon juice, cayenne pepper, garlic or herbal tea!
My usual cayenne/lemon drink sorts me out, but this cold may be winning

I've made a huge pot of soup (main ingredient garlic) so I'm going to smell absolutely divine tommorow!
I've just had a hot shower and popped on my pj's and they feel really lovely!
I may join Sisco for a spot of hibernating in a bit

Stay safe people!
It's icy out there! (Well here)

Here comes the Snow......

Or so the news keeps saying
I actually wouldn't be suprised if we woke up to snow tommorow morning
Today has been so so frosty.
You need about 3 layers to even stay a little bit warm!
It's definately hat, gloves, scarf, earmuffs, thermals weather
Tommorow I may strap a hot water bottle to my back if it carries on like this
Even Sisco has resorted to wearing winter wear

I truly believe she thinks she is supposed to be hibernating
I think she's up to about 20 hours a day of naps!
Lazy little thing!

Of course she wakes up for food
Little fatty!

Tim Walker Photography

I don't suppose you to need an introduction to Tim Walkers work,
But I recently discovered a photo I hadn't come across before

When I was younger I would spend countless hours building 'dens' in trees with my sister
This is the most perfect den ever!
Ours was basically a bean bag and a few sheets!

So dreamy.......

Just a little Quote

I just want to share this quote I love
I have it on my wall by my desk so it's always in view

It's easy to focus on the negative when things go wrong in life
I strongly believe focusing on the 'bad' makes things worse
Always try and take something positive from a situation, even if it's just the fact you have learnt something
Put positive out there and get positive back
Hope you're having a good week!

One Lovely Blog Award!

Lovely Beth at Deer Little Fawn Blog has given me a "One Lovely Blog Award!

Thank you so much Beth!
So, Now I pass it onto some Blogs that I love to bits!

♥♥ Monday Etsy Loves ♥♥ Winter Woodlands ♥♥

I can't believe it's Monday already!
Last week just flew by!
I've spent today making a lucky plush cat for a very special lady - Hope she likes it!

Again, the weather is freezing and whenever you read the news you're told "Snow is coming" and "Temperatures are falling" blah, blah, blah.
It's the same every year, everyone panics, bulk shops incase they're snowed in and waits for this big Snow storm and it never usually happens. But it is really cold!
But right now it's still ok to wrap up and go for frosty walks, which I love!
So this Monday Etsy post is inspired by Winter Woodlands!!!
Hope you enjoy my picks!

I really want this!
It's a log cabin/birdhouse/Wind Chime!
I've always wanted to stay in a log cabin in a forest somewhere, surrounded by snow with a roaring fire!-Lovely!

These little dishes are handy and sweet!

Post Pals

I first heard about Post Pals about a year ago.
It is a charity set up by a young woman named Vikki, who has suffered with illness since she was young. When she became bedbound it struck her how isolating illnesses can be.
What kept her upbeat was the amount of cards she received, giving her something to look forward to each day.

This is when she decided to set up Post Pals.
Since then she has won "Readers Digest Hero of the Year 2006" and "Beacon Award for Young Philanthropist 2008".
She is truly inspirational and has affected so many childrens lives in such a positive way

I have send gifts and cards on and off since I first discovered postpals.
Words cannot describe how lovely it is getting an email off a parent, letting you know you have helped in some small way to put a smile on their childs face.
There are so many things people can do to help. Even an email makes a difference.
Please take a few minutes out of your day and see if there is anything you can do to help.

The Puppies are Growing!

For part of my sisters Birthday present I sent her some puppy T-shirts
Wow, they have grown.
Apparently they spring around like litte deer
I'm not much of a greyhound/whippet fan
But they do look quite sweet
I'm more a fan of stocky little dogs like Pugs, Chihuahuas and Bulldogs

I bet they'll be huge when I meet them at Christmas

Cosy Winter Days

Unfortunately I haven't posted much this week due to a migraine!
But I'm all better now and want to share these amazing wintery and cosy images I found
It's so seriously cold in London right now
I think we may be expecting snow soon!
When it snowed last year we saw quite a few foxes out and about
The contrast of the rich red and the bright white was amazing!
We were snowed in for a few days as none of the public transport was working
So all 3 of us just snuggled up inside together, it was lovely!
Here are some cosy images that I'm loving right now

I LOVE window seats!

This is sooo heartwarming!

These are so cute!

Wow...I want to live here!!!

Last year Sisco was very timid around the snow
Until we let her out and then she dived head first into it
She loved it!
A little snow baby!

In the woods by us I've noticed ALOT of squirrels rummaging around, trying to find food for the Winter
So a few times I've bought bags of unsalted nuts and left them in bushes and trees in the woods
It's so lovely to see the little chubby cheeked cuties stocking up!
