Happy New Year! (And happy birthday to PinksCharming)

Happy New Year! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and welcomed the new year with something sparkly. I woke up with a migraine, and all my New Year’s Eve plans were scuppered. I spent most of the day in bed, and finally managed to crawl to the sofa late afternoon, knowing I’d have trouble sleeping that night if I slept any more.

At only £2.99 from Dunelm I thought I could afford to try it out! If not, it will still look great in my kitchen. I picked it up in store but when I just searched for the link, I saw they do all sorts of matching accessories… dangerous! 2. Flamingo glasses. My obsession with these kitsch  ...
