10 on the 10th - November 2011

It's 10 on the 10th day and I thought I would like to share 10 of my favourite things/obsessions of the moment. So in no particular order


1. My absolutely fab friend Chris (pictured with AJ and I on our wedding day) who's birthday it is today. Happy Birthday Chris - with lots of love





2) AJ and I have a slight obsession with Starbucks and Starbucks mugs. We started abit of a collection of mugs when we met 4 years ago and we must have at least 20 now. I'm going to have to empty another kitchen cupboard to house them all. We are that obsessed that on the 3rd November we had to get the latest Christmas mug and thus decided to be late for work and go to our local store to purchase. Also we just had to have a Gingerbread latte.







3 & 4) Orla Kiely and John Lewis. I absolutely adore Orla Kiely and have just began to start collecting a few items and have put a few on my Christmas list too. I am so glad that you can get Orla Kiely items from my favourite store at the moment - John Lewis








5) Nandos - another favourite of mine and AJ's. We don't go that often, but when we do it is a lovely treat







6 & 7) Patterned paper. Loving American Crafts Amy Tan and Chap collections at the moment. Also loving Shimelle Paper Party class too







8) The photo doesn't give my new red glasses justice, but I'm loving them









9) Lush Designs. I love this store that I came across in Greenwich earlier on in the year. I just want to buy everything





10) And finally of course I am loving my family. Love to AJ, my brother R who has just started a new job and my lovely cats Kiwi and Willow





Good Evening from Pickle Land


I hope to speak to you very soon



Love Lesley xx

  2. It's taken me forever to post this comment but I've been thinking about your love of Starbucks mugs. So I was thinking, I can send you a mug from where I live, Philadelphia, PA, USA if you could send me one from where you live. I could also get one from New York City as I live between the two cities. Let me know if you would like to do this! :)

Book Review January - The Broken Man by Josephine Cox

Josephine Cox is not an author I would normally pick, but I received the book as a present from my mother in law.

The main theme is about the consequences of domestic abuse.  It tells the story of Adam, a young boy who had to bear things no little boy should ever see, and also the tale of Anne who was abused by her husband.  Though the theme was about domestic abuse, it was wasn't graphic or gory which I was glad about.  The tale weaved between Anne's story and Adams story which interlinked, and was a fairly easy read.  I was slightly disappointed with the ending of the book and thought it hadn't fully ended the story of Anne and didn't even mention how she would have felt about finding out her husbands childs link to her best friend.  I also found the aforementioned coincidence too far fetched.

Overall it was an OK book.  Not my favourite book of all time, but very readable all the same.  As the first book I have read of hers I don't know if this is the usual ty…
