Like the colours in autumn, so bright just before they lose it all

Today was so miserable; it was wet, windy and dark. I had no desire to get out of bed. I call these days ‘jumper days’, they are the type of days you need a big warm cosy granddad jumper on. This is my new favourite jumper; I picked it up from Oxfam a couple of weeks ago for a fiver. BIG TIP: Look in the men’s section! It is perfectly oversized and so super cosy; I also love the pattern on it.

Little news update from yesterday: I volunteered in the charity shop again and got to use the pricing gun – it was thrilling stuff. Also the lovely man who comes in every day spoke to me for a good hour and it was the best conversation I have had with someone in ages. He told me all about the club he goes to on Mondays (for people with learning disabilities) and how he collects key rings. I have secretly ordered a key ring with his name on it off eBay for a little Christmas present for him… I also am hopefully going to volunteer at the club – I hope I can make him as happy as he makes me!

How has your week been?

P.S. This week was a great week for my sweet tooth. I finally got hold of some oreo chocolate and oh gosh it lives up to the hype. I have consumed far more bars than one girl ever should. Also when I was in my local newsagents what did I spy? NERDS! I did a little dance right in the shop I was so thrilled. I love nerds, they are my favourite sweet and impossible to get hold of so I am a happy happy girl right now (gosh the little things make such a difference).

  1. Hi Elizabeth! Thank you so much for your nice comment on my blog! It’s always lovely to meet fab new bloggers! That’s brilliant you are volunteering and what a sweet thought to buy that man a keyring!
    I remember nerds! They were reallly yummmy, I didn’t know you could still get those! The jumper is great too! I am always stealing my boyfriend’s old jumpers when he doesn’t want them, they are super snuggly and big!

  2. Hi dear, I like the name ‘jumper days’, i have many of them too! This is a cute and cozy one. So benevolent that you volunteering, nice to see kindness around 🙂 Oreo chocolate!! Haven’t seen that before here, I am already thinking up dessert ideas with that one!
