I have a cold.
Not surprising really seeing as most of the people I work with have been full of colds these past few weeks, it was bound to get me sooner or later. 
I was very glad to arrive home on Friday and have the weekend stretching out in front of me.
No commitments to be anywhere at anytime but with various possibilities out there if we wanted.

Saturday morning was cold but bright and I felt like a walk in the fresh air would help with my head full of stuffiness.
A Christmas fair was being held at a local plant nursery and so that's where we headed, only stopping for a quick photo opportunity.

G is always on the look out for the Jack Reacher books by Lee Child and was very pleased to find two more to add to his collection. S and I found some pretty earrings but my favourite buy was this pink snowflake Pyrex dish.
I have seen them on Pinterest but never one in the flesh. I only paid a pound for it from a bric a brac stall and was gob smacked to see the them selling online for over £100. It's going to have pride of place on the dresser this Christmas.

Housework, a little spot of present wrapping and then some feet up time followed before we wrapped up warm once again and took ourselves down to the local high street for their annual Christmas event.
This can be a bit of a hit or miss affair, this year's was more the latter but we do like to support local events if we can.

I do like the snowmen which adorned the tops of each of the Christmas trees lining the street.
The heads are made from those plastic topiary balls which have been sprayed white and black.

The charity shop I used to volunteer in many moons ago had stayed open late for the event and so we nipped in and I found this pretty heart decorated spice rack for £1.00, something I've been looking out for.

Even after a goodnight's sleep I was loathe to get up this morning. I felt so lethargic and was all bunged up again.
I laid there thinking of all that I needed to do but instead of getting up and setting to G got up made me breakfast in bed and there we stayed for a while longer to watch one of my favourite movies of all time.
The Bishop's Wife.
If you haven't seen it then you must.
Cary Grant and David Niven.
Enough said. 

After watching the movie I did get up and do the majority of those jobs which I needed to do.
Just at a slower, my head is full of cold pace.


  1. Hope you feel better soon! Sounds like it hasn't slowed you down that much...yet

  2. Hope you feel better soon, love your new dish!

  3. I know exactly how you're feeling because I'm full of cold too. I don't get ill very often, the last time I had a cold was back in May 2014 but I usually get it good and proper when it does strike. I love the pink snowflake dish, what a find. Hope you're feeling better soon.

  4. Oh you lucky, lucky thing! I couldn't believe you got that Pyrex dish for just a pound!! I suspect the seller didn't have a clue. Great find - well done!
    I hope you're feeling much better. Have a lovely week! x

  5. Get well soon Lisa! I have a horrible wheezy cough that came out of nowhere so I sympathise with your cold! The Pyrex dish was such a bargain and will look great on your dresser. The spice rack was a great find too and would be an innovative way of hanging necklaces and storing jewellery! x

  6. Just love your new dish, and of course being pink (my favourite colour) it's even better!

    There are so many Christmas Fayres and activities on at the moment,and it's so good if you can support your local ones, I always think the people put so much into it - they welcome our support.

    So sorry to hear you have a cold, this time of year there are so many about ... but breakfast in bed, and a film - now that is good.

    Sending feel better wishes to you - hope this week is going well.

    All the best Jan

  7. Oh dear, I hope you're feeling better - you're right, everyone seems to have a cold at the moment.
    I've got the turquoise version of that snowflake Pyrex dish, the prices on Ebay make me laugh! xx

  8. Massive swoon at the dish... not only the price (really! Will you sell yours after Christmas?) but the colour is gorgeous.
    And The Bishop's Wife is one of my favourites! I think I missed out on watching it last year. I must get it out and watch it this. A timely reminder that the season has better things planned for us if we let it.

  9. I love that film, I am quite a Cary Grant and a David Niven fan, so 2 wins for me watching it. Hope you feel much better soon xx
