Sun, Costa and Crafts Haul

I love Sundays. They always feel good, whatever I’m doing (unless I’m rocking a pretty rare hangover from Saturday’s antics). Staying tucked in bed until the early afternoon and not doing anything doesn’t really make me feel guilty, like it would if I wasted a full Saturday. Trust me, I mutter “I’m allowed, it’s a Sunday” every single week.

This weekend was a good one. Yesterday’s original plans of getting up super early to fit in a truck load of plans quickly slipped away – we couldn’t drag ourselves out of bed. We made the most of it in the end though and it actually worked out to be one of the loveliest days we’ve had in a while.

After lunch (okay, way way after lunch), we headed out into the sun, towards the marina and on our way to the crafts store. That was our main priority, because… crafts. I can’t help myself.

Something you probably don’t know about me is that I’m frightened of being outdoors. There are so many ‘triggers’ – unfamiliar places, empty places, crowded places, the dark or being alone being the main culprits – but that’s a story for another day. Saturday, though, was an unexpectedly good day for me. The walk to the shops, most likely because of that gorgeous sun, was pretty lovely!

I picked up lots of crafting goodies, after over an hour of mooching around the shop, and we ended up getting quite a haul. I’m so excited about that gold spray paint though… That’s going to be used in one of my clay crafts to make some pretty geometric photograph holders. That’ll make a lovely post in the future. I also picked up a scrapbook, some acrylic paints, metal rings for key rings, a couple of packs of clay, glossy sealer and lots of sweets!

We ended the day sat outside in the sun with a beautiful hot chocolate at Costa and a bun. I don’t know if it’s because everything is better when it’s sunny but oh my it was the most delicious thing I’ve ever eaten – a raspberry and almond slice. Nom.


I hope you had a good couple of days, too!

How was your weekend? What was the best thing about it?

    • It’s definitely something I want to write about eventually. I’ve only recently got help though, so all this honesty is a bit fresh!
      Is it something you’ve had/got problems with too?


      • I can’t say it’s something I’ve had a problem with myself, but I like finding out about the fear of others, because it can be quite interesting. I hope you don’t take that the wrong way! If it’s still fresh for you, then you should totally take your time before you share it 🙂
