Reasons to be cheerful

This week the charity shops seem empty (it wasn't me - I can't have emptied all my local charity shops), and what they do have seems very expensive.
I have found a few bits and bobs, which I will photograph and blog at the weekend.
In the meantime, a few non-thrift-related things that have made me happy this week :

These women

The arrival of my copy of Midcentury Magazine

This story
I hope people are laughing with him, rather than laughing at him.

The wonderful customer service at John Lewis and Habitat - those people are so nice, they must be very happy in their jobs. In the case of John Lewis, I think it may be connected to the partnership model.
Being surrounded by lovely things all day might help, too.

And finally, the weather. Thank-you, rain, for waiting till I get home and get my washing off the line in the evening before unleashing a magnificent downpour that saves me having to water the garden.

A pretty good week, then.


  1. Thanks for sharing these stories. I'm in awe of The SlutWalk, totally stand behind their message!

    Have a nice weekend! :)

  2. Thanks for that, Van. Nice to share more than just thrifting stuff.
    Happy weekend to you, too
