It’s Friday and have I got some treats for you! Here are a bunch of excellent things to set your weekend off in the most glorious way:1. Wellbeing: Believe in the ‘Snaps’ To promote harmony within groups whether it’s at work or at home with friends, colleagues or family the snaps cup is a way of bringing peace and love to any situation. This excellent, harmonious method was introduced to us on the film Legally Blonde 2. First you need a snaps cup or box or any place to put your ‘snaps’ into, we recycled a small box and decorated it. Secondly you need small pieces of paper to write your ‘snaps’ on. Thirdly you all need to take one of the small pieces of paper and write something nice about another member of the group and place it into the ‘snaps’ box. Once all the compliments ‘snaps’ are in the box, each person passes around the box taking out one of the snaps and reading it aloud to the group. It really works to restore complete harmony. It’s up to you if you wish to snap your fingers as you read out the compliment. We took to doing ‘snaps’ every evening during our month in France and it really helped to encourage us, it also makes you aware what your strengths are and can be known to cause hysterical laughter. “SNAPS for you!’
2. Reading: What We Talk About When We Talk About Love is a 1981 collection of short stories by American writer Raymond Carver. A cracking collection os short stories, ideal for those that only have a short time to dedicate to reading each day, easy to pick up in those precious moments. Each story is very simply written, no pretence, the subject matters are everyday occurrences captured and told in a clear and beautiful manner with poetic subtlety.
3. Food: Now, for anybody into novelty table wear Canterbury Collectables is a bit of a Mecca. Recommended to me by my dear friend Coralie (sorry for divulging our little secret) sometime ago it has pretty much been my ultimate shopping destination ever since. I love a great set of Salt ‘n’ Pepper shakers it’s no secret. I bought these excellent Mallard duck Salt ‘n’ Pepper shakers for my Dad. If you’re into excellent egg cups, treasure boxes, butter dishes or toast racks Canterbury Collectables really is the place for you, they cannot be beaten on price either. Incredible!
4. Music: Currently playing on my jukebox are the infectious and irresistible five-piece folk group Skinny Lister, have a listen, they’ll soon have you stampin’ our feet. If you like the Pogues then they’re one for you. Excellent music and good looking boys + girls, ideal.
5: Style: Here’s a great quote from the Simple Abundance book I’m reading, it’s so simple and so true.
“Never forget that the most essential fashion accessories, the ones no woman can afford to do without, come from within. A generous heart, a spontaneous smile, and eyes that sparkle with delight can be part of any woman’s signature look once she awakens to her authentic beauty.”

Have a fantastic weekend.
