Sunday Spotlight - 8th December 2013

This week, I’ve been loving…

My bed

I’ve had an ear infection this week and have just generally been feeling pretty run down, so sleep time couldn’t come soon enough! Sometimes there’s nothing better than snuggling down under the duvet with your fluffy pyjamas and hot water bottle. Add to the mix a cuddly cat who likes to snooze right next to me, and this has been my favourite place to be this week!

Special birthdays

On Thursday my Gran turned 90, which I think is pretty amazing really. She’s lived with us for a few years now, and although at times it can be difficult, I wouldn’t want it any other way. She’s in the later stages of Dementia, which is such a cruel illness, but we’ve tried to make this week as special as possible for her. On her actual birthday we did a cake, candles and a few presents and cards. We also bought her some beautiful flowers and funky helium balloons, as she likes having things to look at. Then today her sister-in-law and nephew travelled up from Devon to have lunch with us. We did a big cake and she got yet more beautiful flowers. Unfortunately she wasn’t having a good day, but we did get some lovely smiles over the afternoon and hopefully she will remember parts of it over the next few weeks. It was just nice to get together as a family and celebrate such a special occasion.


During past winters I’ve tended to live in hoodies, but this winter I’ve really got in to knitwear, and there are so many great jumpers out there it’s been pretty easy to feed my addiction! I’ve bought a fair few jumpers from New Look, as they’re lovely and soft and not too expensive. I also bought a lovely warm jumper from Forever 21 and have been eyeing up some more expensive numbers in Topshop. I think I’ll have to stop myself from buying any more though, as with Christmas fast approaching I need to save my pennies for gifts for friends and family.
