Dusty Pink Sofa and Flowers


So I am dressing like it's Spring, on Saturday I purchased this fabulously flowery Laura Ashley 1980's skirt, it has buttons and pockets, win win and it was £4.50. 

We also bought the rest of our 'necessary' furniture, the pièce de résistance you may have already seen if you follow me on instagram, a dusty pink antique sofa I found it on eBay and put in a best offer, then realised the location of the seller's warehouse wasn't far away. So we drove down on Sunday and ended up buying two wardrobes, two bedside cabinets and a bookcase as well as the sofa for bargain price! This time next week is the big move, I can barely concentrate, I am excited and a little scared of finally being an actual grown up, a grown up who has asked if it's okay if we make dens, stay up all night and watch films and turn the cellar into a cinema. I still need to finish packing! 





Four more work days to go!

  9. Gasp! I love that sofa, and you are looking beautiful as always!! I love checking in and seeing what you are up to! I wish I could furnish this place with that kind of stuff, but I have to be subtle with it. The Mister loves MODERN (blech) and I have to sort of tip-toe in with my Vicorian-esque furniture finds!

  14. You can get the older digital Canon Rebel,
    with a lens, for a good price new. However, if you face a data loss situation, in absence of a valid backup, no need to
    worry. If your camera is not displayed as a drive
    letter when connected to your PC you may try with a digital camera card reader.

  15. However, there may be an opportunity to take AP courses at another school or online during the
    regular school day. If you are using a DSL modem, are tethering
    through a cell phone, or are still on dial-up, you probably have a static IP address, and will actually have to enter
    in information to this device to get connected to the Internet.
    While the Inspiron and Samsung both offer the new i3 processor, the Acer AS5253 comes
    with a quick AMD-E series 2.

  16. This runs you through various steps such as choosing your country and language and what specific elements you want to
    install. The Nexus S, however, has flash while some variants, such
    as the Samsung Vibrant and Captivate, of the Samsung Galaxy S
    do not. "Many eyes will likely be on them to determine if they'll pull the rabbit out with the hat," Enderle mentioned.

  18. The press conference saw the intro to hardware enhancements
    about the Samsung Galaxy Note 2, and the profound interpretation of its major system functionalities.

    This battery really surprised me with how much work I could get done
    in a single day. This review is focused on the new concepts introduced in the Brink of War expansion.

  19. It's unclear from the report, as well, if Google will offer cellular versions of the tablet immediately (last year the company released a wi-fi-only version months before debuting a 3G version). The applications that have been mentioned are readily compatible with nexus 7 device and these apps provide effective health advice. If you already have a Google Gmail account, you can add that easily through your Google account settings.

  20. The Canon EOS 5D Mark II is $2,499 for body only or
    $3,299 with a 24'105mm lens. A Canon Powershot s60 software also comes either for Microsoft Windows operating software or for the Mac operating software, so this means whatever operating software you use, you can be sure that your Canon Powershot s60 digital camera will work great for you. Make sure that the flash units polarities are in the.

  21. You see people passing time by checking on friends, catching up on texts or e-mail or playing a video game oblivious
    to what is happening around. Interestingly, the rise in
    sales of smartphones will come at the expense of declining cell phone sales, currently 90% of the market.
