Nightmares by the sea

This is only going to be a short post as my mind is elsewhere today.  I found out last night that my Grandad passed away yesterday so I'm still absorbing that information and having a day of being on my own to mull things over.  It was very sudden so there was no suffering but it also means it has come as a bit of a shock.

It seems a bit superficial to write this post given this news but I wanted to share with you some things I've bought with my Christmas money this year (and something else that arrived in the post!).  In particular I am over the moon with two necklaces I bought from Sugar and Vice, who I found through a tweet from the lovely Sophie.  As soon as I saw their awesome website I splashed out on a name necklace in my favourite colour combo (gotta love black and gold!) and the compass necklace at the bottom.  They came two days after I ordered them which is pretty awesome for a personalised necklace and were both amazing value (the one I bought would normally be £10.95 but I paid £2 more for the mirrored acrylic). My next purchase is going to be their 'Like A Boss' necklace I think - love it!




The above two photos are from the Five Year Memory Book (£7.49) I bought - you write a line a day every day and then when the year ends you do the same for the following year. I thought it could be quite fun to look back over the years in a few years time.


My sister from another mister, Ayden  posted me a lovely card that I am convinced has a photo of Bodhi on the front (forgot to take a snap as I already popped it on the mantelpiece, will share in a later post) and a CD in the post to me that arrived this morning.  Her mix CDs are a saving grace for me with the 50 mile a day commutes so I'm super excited to have some new tunes for Monday morning!


I am a bit addicted to Victoria at VIPXO's eBay/Designer Inspired posts and I picked this handbag up she featured back in November in one, it got caught up with the Christmas post and arrived today, it was about £8 or £9 - bargain! 


Hope you're all having lovely Saturdays.  Did you splash out on anything with any Christmas cash?

  5. What a terrible shock it must have been to you and your family Rosie, to lose your Grandad so suddenly.

    It was heart warming seeing all the tweets that fellow bloggers and tweeters were sending you, I hope it gives you a little strength to get through.

    I love your memory book! I got a "listography" book for Christmas. It's simply a book to list... well... everything really! Favourite places... food etc. I'm a sucker for writing lists so it was a perfect gift.

    Much love, hun :D xxxx
