Sunday Spotlight – 13th October 2013

This week, I’ve been loving…

Bedroom Boots

You’ll notice there’s a bit of a wintery theme across my last few Sunday Spotlights – I just love doing whatever I can to brighten up these cold, damp winter days! I’ve got pretty terrible circulation, which often leaves me with feet like ice blocks. Fluffy socks and slippers can only do so much, but a few years ago I discovered the bedroom boot and have never looked back! You can get them in all sorts of colours, patterns and styles, so there are plenty to choose from to suit every taste. My favourite place to buy mine is Accessorize - they always seem to have a great variety of fluffy designs to keep my tootsies extra warm.

This year’s Children in Need single – Ellie Goulding – How Long Will I Love You

I love Children in Need – the idea of doing something fun and different to raise money for such a good cause is great. I’m always intrigued to hear what that year’s Children in Need song will be, and who will sing it, and this year I was delighted to hear Fearne Cotton announce on her Radio 1 show that Ellie Goulding had recorded the song for 2013. I’m a big Ellie Goulding fan, so even before I heard it I knew it would be great, and she hasn’t disappointed. I’ll be downloading my copy when it is released on the 10th November and would urge you to do the same!

There’s a little information here to keep you going until it is available for download!

Catching up with far-away friends

During the course of being ill, I’ve made some fantastic friends through an M.E charity called AYME. Some of us have never met and simply stay in touch via text, e-mail, letter or Facebook, but I’ve also been lucky enough to meet quite a few of them face-to-face. This weekend a couple of them came to visit for a little birthday afternoon tea party, and we chilled out on our comfy sofas and chatted about all sorts of things. It’s so lovely to know people who really understand, who you don’t have to explain things to but also who you can simply have a normal conversation with about what was on TV last night or what book you’ve just read. Due to my health and theirs, I don’t get to see my AYME friends enough, but just knowing they’re there can sometimes be enough.

What has grabbed your attention this week? I love hearing about people’s new discoveries and you may end up sharing something that makes it onto my list next week!
