This week I have been feeling a bit like Eeyore ........ a bit gloomy.
I don't know if it's because the official-ness of winter is looming when we put the clocks back this coming weekend or the gloominess of the weather but this week, I have been feeling a bit out-of-sorts. I haven't done any sewing or crocheting and I haven't baked any bread, or attacked anything with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, which isn't like me at all. So today, in an attempt to feel less gloomy, I lit my living room fire, made some chocolate chip cookies and put James Bond on TV. I know that some of my fellow bloggers have been feeling the same way recently so for all you ladies out there who are feeling gloomy, I though that this might help. It certainly cheered me up.
