Things that made me smile today

  1. These stunning anemones I picked up from the market yesterday for £1.50. They are just so very pretty - like a Laduree rose macaroon. I smile every time I look at them. It made me want to pop on a tea dress, pick up my current book club read and have a tray of tea. I smiled even more when I spotted them at the florists for £5.95! Did you know that anemones represent anticipation? Rather appropriate I thought.
  2. Waking up in a bed of fresh linen.
  3. Baking a(nother) marble cake. In a giant cupcake base. Too much fun.
  4. Listening to the three parakeets on the bird feeder shrieking at the cats.
  5. My daily dose of the Gilmore Girls.
  6. Mr and Mrs Robin eating my discarded muesli nuts.
  7. Spidermonkey sneaking up the stairs outside for a better view of the squirrels and being caught...


  1. your flowers are lovely, and marble cake sounds divine. I've just read lollipop shoes too, it was my first read of 2009, did you like it as much as chocolat - I can't decide?
    thanks for visiting today. xx

  2. It was my first read of 2009 too. I really enjoyed reading it, but I think Chocolat was sweeter. ; )
