Instalife: 2013 Begins

Happy Monday lovelies!

It’s been a while since I’ve done an Instalife post, but I thought I’d share with you my quiet January pics so you can see what I’ve been up to. Despite a short holiday break with friends at the beginning of the month, January was pretty crappy due to migraines. So, I didn’t really get up to much!

I don’t mind if February stays at this same pace – I’m definitely going to take it easy for a while. 2012 was a whirlwind!

    I never tire of IG pics, they’re such a great snapshot of everyday life.
    The tea set you won is STUNNING, what a gorgeous colour and your crochet leaves look beautiful.
    My January was probably quite similar to yours, fluffy companions, tea, crochet and reading. I’m staying in hibernation until at least…. April, I think 😉 xx

    Is it possible to fall head-over-heels in lust with an inanimate object? That cup has stolen my heart!! I’m keeping everything crossed you have a much less migrainey February xxx

    LOVE that cup and saucer! Tammy is super cute! I have also had a quiet start to the year. Desperately trying to learn to crochet but it is a slow process for me. Attended beginner’s workshop last weekend. Your baby blanket and leaves are beautiful.

    I’d be interested to know what you think of that book, as it’s been hanging around on my Amazon wishlist for some time. Hope February continues to be pain-free and relaxed. x
