Reasons to be cheerful...

... in three parts*.


Part 1...

Back by popular demand! Hurrah!


Part 2...

My new gloves:

So soft and cosy!

So pretty!

And yes, I know I shouldn't really have bought them because

a) I could have made something veeeery similar myself, and
b) they are mass-produced and from a big(ish) chain

BUT, in my defence, if I'd tried to make them myself I probably wouldn't have got round to finishing them until next spring, by which time they'd have been unecessary anyway. And, they're just sooooo soft and luvverly.... so can I be let off, please?


And finally......


Part 3...

As of last weekend, my left hand is now considerably sparklier than it used to be:

Sparkly sparkly


*Part 3 is my favourite :o)

I still haven't managed to by a Wispa....'cos I remember the horror stories that used to go round school about 'stuff' that made it's way into the molten chocolate on it's journey to becoming a Wispa!

Cool (or rather warm) gloves - lovely!

Huge congratulations on no3!! I agree with Trashy - you should have the big day online so we can all throw virtual confetti :)

Congratulations - lovely ring.

Hooray for your sparkly hand! Rather than ask when the big day is, I will ask what type of cake you're going to have?
The return of the Wispa is incredibly exciting too- I am making sure I eat pleny now in case they take them away again :(
