Hasn’t the weather just been absolutely glorious lately? It’s made me realise just how much I dislike winter. It’s okay when it first begins and you get all excited about Pinterest pictures of snow and snuggly jumpers and pumpkin-spiced everything but once Christmas is done and dusted I want it to be spring straight away.
Thank goodness we’re out the other side and the clocks have changed! The lighter evenings really make all the difference. It’s made doing the house up a little easier too as it would have been miserable to have been working in the dark so much and there’s no way I’d have been as enthusiastic at the prospect of gardening in the frost.
The one thing I’m missing out on a little bit this year is that because of the house we’ve got no spare money at all. This means that any thoughts of shopping have to be put to the very back of my mind and I’ve been trying to avoid flicking through magazines or going anywhere near the shops in order to avoid temptation.
On top of this, because our house is down an un-made road, we’ve started to consider how much of a beating our poor car is going to get and have started talking about investing in a sturdier vehicle. I don’t think we really count as having an ‘average family car‘* – we probably don’t get caught in traffic for that long as we both work from home and Nick would definitely protest to saying that we get lost twice a year in the car!
So, to keep my urges at bay, I’ve been doing some pretend shopping on Polyvore and have collated my favourites pieces from the high street this season. You never know, maybe I’ll be able to snap them up second-hand on eBay next year!
