Smile - if you can....

...this old postcard {my all time favourite} always manages to bring a smile to my face, even during the hardest, toughest weeks. That was/is {?} one of them....and I have not been able to get myself in gear to update this dear wee blog with any sort of goodness to amuse the masses - so sorry dear friends for the unexplained absence. I am just so tired.....not sleeping very well, and with so much still to do....tiredness is the topic de jour. {not that I am going to really explore the theme....}

I have been saving up linky goodness galore, and my favourite autumn inspirations..which I hope to be able to get around to posting next week...not tonight though. I have been out for a big shop today {food}, so have spend the last hour and a quarter preparing a huge big unctuous beef casserole/stew to have with mash tonight. It is a double batch....so the house has a wonderful rich aroma about it.

Tonight, I will just be relaxing on the sofa and reading the new issue of Vogue, and am looking forward to the return of one of my favourite dramas....Spooks!!! { a brilliant MI5 spy -type thrill trip of a show} whooohoo ;)

Happy Sunday my dears - hope you are having a good one!!

Oh the onslaught of autumn; the sudden lack of energy, the weird fitful sleeps, the afternoon naps when you have SO SO much to do. At least that's my version of it - and it sounds to me like you may be suffering from the same thing, even although we both agree that autumn is fabulous! Or perhaps it's just simply that you are working so hard. Either way, I hope it gets better for you soon :)

The postcard is cute. For an autumn treat, I would recommend going to see Little Miss Sunshine if you haven't already (the girl on the postcard just reminded me of it).
