Keep Calm and Carry On.

Which in my case means shopping. I will admit I have had a tough week, the kind of week where if you have an inkling you would never have got out of bed. So I have been shopping but I haven't gone as mad as I might in the past, which is a consolation I guess.

Monday I got formal notice of redundancy and the news that a friend has terminal cancer. I have to admit the cancer news did knock the redundancy news into a cocked hat. Tuesday I got the news that another friend's Dad had died unexpectedly. I'm so sad for her, I can't even begin to imagine what she must be going through.

Oh and today I got the news that I didn't get an interview for the job I went for.
 So I must admit I'm more than a little down right now. I'm tired and just want to crawl into my shell for a while, but no time, no time. We are mad busy at work and Friday we are off to the Kent Coast where my sister is in need of much TLC. Turns out her Beau was not what he appeared to be so she's feeling very bruised, mentally and emotionally and very stupid for falling for the lines.
As it turns out there is a parade in Ramsgate to celebrate 90 years of the British Legion with lots of vintage cars and stalls and a 1940's dance in the evening. We are planning to go and have some much needed fun.

Anyway this wasn't meant to be a pity party so I will share my shopping.

 Firstly the things I ordered with my 20% Tesco code.All 3 were also in the sale so it was a win win situation!

Also today I visited the new Asda Living store in Cowley and picked up this cute little bird print dress.

 How sweet are they?
 Finally I got this new bed set for the bargain price of £13
Here's to a good weekend and a better week next week. x


  1. Sorry to hear about all the bad news, I hope you enjoy the parade.

    I love that little bird print dress, I wonder if my asda will have it? Will be popping in there today to see. Scarlett x

  2. You've been having a terrible week - I hope things improve for you, and fast.

  3. Sorry to hear the news, big hugs to you. xxx

  4. Oh - you have had a rough week :o( That royally sucks :o( Big massive hugs to you x x x

  5. Oh hun, you poor thing. I can't even think of what to say, but to give you a big internet hug xxx

  6. :( Oh no. Sometimes life can just pile it up can't it? Fingers crossed, good news will come along soon.

    Glad you've got some nice things and a family weekend though. Hope it's nice! Love the idea of the celebration!

  7. O,dear.Sometimes,one door closes and another opens.....stay positive through all the gloom,love.

  8. Sorry to hear the bad news about your job. I work for libraries too....things not looking too good at the moment but I just can't dwell on it.

    Have a great weekend and look forward to seeing a post about it soon.


  9. So sorry about this - its certainly true that troubles never some singly. You have to be strong to support your friends and sister just now, but I'm sure there are happier times ahead. xxx

  10. I'm really sorry to hear all this, I obviously missed your post as I'd just come back off holiday. That's a lot to deal with, but sounds like you are coping admirably. Glad you've been able to spend some quality time with your sister and family at least.

    Some great clothes you've found recently too.

    (Thanks for the tip on the daffs, I was finding that if they didn't open with a day, they wouldn't at all and would just shrivel up. I will try peeling back that membrane thing next year)

    Hope things start looking up for you and yours soon.
