34 days to go: Reasons To Be Cheerful - Part One


I love the Ian Dury song - Reasons To Be Cheerful - Part Three.
The song always makes me smile.
Like this cardigan.
I bought it in the Karen Millen sales about four years ago for around £30.
I love the colours, the stripes, the shape.
I have repaired it, I have cut off tassels but still I love it to bits.
Today I am going to look for all the reasons to be cheerful.
One reason I feel a bit more cheerful is I have had anther purge of my wardrobe.
The last eBay sale raised £88.00.
Here's a sneak preview.

Well, fake it 'til you make it. I you think cheerful then hopefully cheerful will come your way.

Much love to you,

PS Those grey and black pumps wouldn't be a size 10 Australian would they?!

Sorry that you have to look for reasons - I can see in your face that it's hard work at the moment.

By the way - next ebay sale, let those trousers go.

Hi Jane, well done with your ebay sale. I bid on the Marc Jacob's dress but I was out most of the day last Sunday and unfortunately I was outbit. Try to be positive and things will end up fine. Hugs. A.

I like the stripes! You are really doing well with eBay and I know that means a lot of work behind the scenes.

Will you be off for a massive splurge in 35 days time then? I'm worried I may not have my daily fix from your blog for much longer once the year is up... :-(
