Unfortunately I’ve not been feeling very well the last few days, it’s one of the bad points of being a mummy that you seem to catch every bug the little ones get. Luckily my fantastic husband looked after me beautifully and I’m feeling much better now.
I’ve managed to get a little behind on my blogging schedule, and I’m kicking myself for not getting ahead and writing some stand by posts for times like this!
Hopefully over the next few days I will get a bit more caught up, Making Monday will be back next week, and I have some more vintage inspired christmas party outfits planned as well as some christmas gift ideas for vintage lovers.
I’m also going to write a post about my fantastic new sponsor Cori Lu Vintage who has the most amazing Etsy shop, it’s like a little vintage treasure trove with lots of beautiful accessories and home bits.
I’ve managed to finish a book this week, Christmas at Rosie Hopkins’ Sweetshop by Jenny Colgan, whose books I love. I reviewed the first Rosie Hopkins book last year. Although I read a big variety of books I absolutely love chick lit and Jenny Colgan writes chick lit at it’s absolute best. So this is definitely the first of many christmas reads I’ll be recommending this year.
I also got the audio book of David Suchet’s Poirot and Me, I’m a massive Poirot fan and at the half way point I’m am really enjoying this one. It’s brilliant written and I love the fact that the audio book is read by Suchet and features his fabulous Belgian accents. I would really recommend getting this one as an audio book as I think it’s really added to the enjoyment. This book would also make a fantastic Christmas present for a Poirot fan.
I’ll be writing reviews of both these books early in December.
Anyway thanks for baring with me while I’ve been gone and normal activity will resume tomorrow. xxx
