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! :)

Happy Birthday to Me

Its my Birthday.  I am 42 years old.  Wow, how did that happen?????? Is still feel like I'm 21

A fresh start

I am currently at ease with myself and the way my life is at present.

That is a huge statement for me to share and also a very long time coming.

The past few years have been really tough.  Life seemed to have totally gone off track.  My life felt off kilter and to a point not my own.  I suffered deeply with depression, had a crappy job, my relationship with my husband was at times very strained and I had become very insular and within myself.  Life felt hard and I suffered greatly.

I got a new job, and for a few months I hated it.  It didn't float my boat so to speak.  I thought I could do better.  I felt like I had taken a huge step backwards career wise, I was unhappy and felt broken.  But I suddenly had an AHA moment.  I realised that I could and should change my attitude towards it.  I didn't want to look for a new job as it had taken a while to find this one and I hated filling in application forms and going to interviews.  I didn't want to find a job where I would…

Wishing You a Very Merry Christmas
