Where have I been?

I have been very rubbish at blogging in the last couple of weeks and if anyone has been disappointed in me for that I'm really sorry. I thought I'd explain myself.

  • I have loads going on in my life at the moment. Most of you will be bored to death with me going on about my house (www.laurenmakesahome.blogspot.com) and I'm getting ready to move in now so spend most my time packing when I'm not working.


  • I've got a new job! I'm working with people with learning disabilities and mental health problems and it's fantastic! However I'm still in the "first month, learning the ropes" area which means I come home and fall asleep every night because I'm so tired.

To round up this week, here's my list of things I want but can't afford!

I'm obsessed with novelty animal rings! I'm loving these gorgeous ones

Enamel Bird Ring - £15

Bunny Rabbit Ring - £8.50

Mr Octopus ring - £15 (I love how the fish is shouting!)
