Me Time…

Ages ago I left a comment on Tales from the Village, I didn’t realise that it was one where you can win something, I was just admiring Rachael’s pretty books!  But a couple of weeks back I had an email from the lovely Appliances Online saying I’d won £50 of Amazon vouchers to treat myself with – hurray!. I was going to order some books for our new Kindle but Hubby is hogging it so I’ve gone old fashioned and bought actual books.  Amazon is my utter weak spot, and my wish list is massive so it’s taken me a couple of weeks to decide what to get. But I have plumped for these:

Romantic Prairie Style – Fifi O’Neill

Fifi blogs at Fabulous Fifi and she was one of the first blogs I ever followed. She is a fabulous home stylist and lovely lady. She was also one of the first people to comment on Violet Posy back in 2008, when I first started it encouraging me to work for myself. I can’t wait to read her book.

Decorate: 1000 Professional Design Ideas for Every Room in the House by Holly Becker of Decor8 Blog which I adore. I’m really looking forward to getting some new ideas from this one.

The Great British Book of Baking: 120 best-loved recipes from teatime treats to pies and pasties by Linda Collister. My Mum has a copy of this and there are some lovely recipes in it and she won’t give it up, so I’ve had to buy my own. Mmm Cake!

And then so I can have some ‘Me Time’ and read my new books a DVD of Despicable Me for Miss L (also I think it’s a fun film so I don’t mind watching it again).

So leave me a comment on here and you too could be visited by the Appliances Online fairies, you never know!.

  3. Lovely 🙂

    I LOVE books. My only problem is that DH says I have to get rid of one to gain one now as we are running out of space. I just think I’ve got to get more creative with possible places for more shelving 😀
