Something exciting happened this week. I bought my first Christmas present! Well, technically I've already bought a couple online that haven't arrived yet, but this was the first purchase I made on a whim, and sometimes those turn out to be the best.
I was in a bad mood because Oxford Circus was extra busy and I was in desperate need of a parka coat because the weather in London is a bit miserable at the moment, to put it politely. Fed up, I wandered into the florist at the front of Liberty, which you will know if you have been there before, is exceptionally expensive. And then I saw this crown pot and just thought 'that is perfect for my mum' and the relatively inexpensive price tag was such a nice surprise. And then as I was queuing at the till I spotted this jug and I thought 'that is perfect for me', because sometimes you need a little midweek pick-me-up in the form of the flower vase/jug you have always been searching for. Such a serendipitous moment that made my week! Wishing you a wonderful weekend x
Also, thank you so much for all your comments on this post. It's given me lots to think about for the new year and I'm really grateful to everyone for sharing.
