Silver Linings - February

Yay for me keeping this going for more than the first month, we're doing well!  February was kind of a mixed bag for me and I haven't been feeling the most positive BUT I've still managed to pick out some sparkly silver linings.

Finding Squirrel Nutkin.  For Christmas Paul got me the collector's book so I can hopefully find a full set of the Beatrix Potter coins.  I only had Peter Rabbit for ages, so I was pretty (irrationally) excited to find Mr Nutkin in my change at the restaurant.

Reuniting with my old work colleagues. Early on in February my friends from my last job had a work night out to say goodbye to a few people who are moving on and I went too! It was lovely to see them all, I miss being at work with people who really know me.

Book giving day. Instead of buying Valentine's gifts, in recent years Paul and I have adopted Book Giving Day as an alternative.  This year he bought me the illustrated Winnie the Pooh from the Folio Society and it is BEAUTIFUL...

Emily's hen do.  My best friend's hen do was this month in Manchester and it was a lovely day filled with fun and laughter, photo challenges, afternoon tea, cocktail making and yummy pizza.  It was so good to see some ladies I haven't seen for a while and catch up, plus it's the first hen do I've ever been on! #TeamBride

Homemade burgers.  Our friends Jonnie and Laura invited us round for tea and we haven't seem them for ages, so it was really nice to catch up.  Jonnie made these amazing burgers, as good if not better than eating out!  I'm not just saying that on the off chance that he's reading, honest.

Free books.  As well as book presents I also got some free books this month courtesy of the Radio Times, who around Christmas were running a promotion for three Sherlock Holmes compilations when you collected three tokens in consecutive issues. So old school but worth the effort for a nice surprise when they arrived - Penguin English Library editions too, my shelf is happy.

My favourite things this month:
Gilmore Girls
Woodwick Spiced Blackberry Candle
Lush Rosy Cheeks fresh face mask
