When it's grim...

Ooh, January is a grim out month isn't it?  If it's not the gloomy old weather, then the post Christmas gloom and general bad life stuff will certainly get you down.

So in the mean time I'm thinking:

  •  Pretty papers
  • Baking
  • Bright colours
  • Cosy toes
  • Hot chocolate
A wedding anniversary card for my parents.

When I peeped my nose out the door this morning I reached for the big guns of gloom busting....the bright pink winter coat.

I forgot just how bright this coat is until I was walking down the street:o

Right, ticked all the above except the Hot Chocolate.....wheres the marshmallows?


  1. Can't think of anything nicer than a pink coat :) except maybe marshmallows on hot chocolate lol

  2. Hurray I can leave you a comment today. I'm sure you brightened a few peoples day in your lovely coat. I'm pleased to see that you have been able to get on with your card how are the presents coming along?

    I also wanted to congratulate you on your gingerbread house even with the subsidence :)

    I agree with your thinking too. I'm just contemplating a bit more baking. Last weekend I baked a coffee and walnut cake. The only down side is it doesn't help with trying to lose a few pounds but boy did it taste nice.

  3. this is such a pretty card, love the doily, I may have to get some of these to use on my cards :o)
