Sorry for distracting background but the only spot with decent light is on my bed by the window, and unfortunately I like bright and patterned duvet covers. I think I'm going to have to get a big piece of mountboard to lay on the bed because this just looks bad!
The biggest thing for me last year was planning my wedding. About this time I'd just found out there had been a bit of a mix up with my friend's holiday so he couldn't do my make-up for me so I was panicking about finding someone else. I was also trying to sort out the exact numbers of people coming and who wanted to stay at the venue the night of the wedding. Only to discover that horror of horrors only a few people could stay and the venue wanted me to pay over 2 grand for the accomodation which we in no way had left out of the budget.
But in the end another friend stepped up to do the make up, and we just had to have the venue close at midnight instead of keeping it open all night for people to stay there.
This year I'm defintely feeling the effect of the credit crunch. Financial worries are a big concern especially this month. I imagine a lot of you are struggling as well, personally, I can barely pay the bills, which means no money for scrapbooking anymore so i'm having to use up my stash. I would really love to buy myself some new Thickers as i'm completely addicted to them and using other things such as stamps just isn't the same.
On the positive side, having no money makes our family pull together and I know Hubby will help me. I'm more grateful for the simple things like family, good food and, the internet. I don't think I'd cope well without the first and last of these in particular, they keep me sane! This was today's gorgeous roast dinner made by my mother-in-law, it was a lot nicer than it looks in this photo.
What keeps you sane at the moment?
