Last week was so dark and gray that I ordered a sparkly sleeveless top from a catalog to cheer myself up. That was somewhat out of character for me, as I’m not usually an impulse shopper. It definitely left me feeling more cheerful when I put it on, though. I would say there’s no harm in it because we all need to buy new clothes sometime! And now that the days are getting longer, it’s starting to feel just a little bit like spring. Even though today started with icy drizzle and ended with snow, we’re not that far away.

  1. Oh, I’m smiling right now! I did the same on Friday, it was grey and snowy here, and I got myself a beautiful pair of shoes online! We need to do everything to lift our mood in the middle of the winter, but as you said Spring is coming!
