So this is the after shot of drawer number 2. I did do it the day after drawer number 1 but just getting round to blogging it today. Yesterday I was sick as a dog. Not sure if it’s what Miss 23 had or if I’d eaten something dodgy, but it rendered me useless for the day. Happily I’ve woken up much better this morning. Not totally tip top but a zillion times better! Anyway here are the contents of what I found in drawer 2. It had got to that barely enough room to open n shove something else in! For this reason, I’m not looking forward to drawer 3 because that’s the worst! I will do it after a cup of tea!
So drawer 2.

Pile of stuff for HG to say yay/nay to. X a billion - included above leads n other assorted what I’d call man crap!
So this drawer is still full of crap, but it’s tidy. All the batteries are in one place and the pens!
Thought I’d share a few photos.
This is a lovely vintage cake plate gifted to me by my ma in law. It’s so pretty.
The necklace below is one exactly like I bought Miss 23 for Christmas. The name of the crystal is Lightning sun and it’s truly beautiful and on the back of my SW achievement I treated myself to it out of my Christmas money. . I think it’s beautiful.
Saw these on Amazon and they made me giggle. But I was almost tempted to get some for the Spring!
Right, a much needed cup of tea I think after existing on one glass of flat lemonade with ice yesterday. It’s my go to drink when I’m sick.
Last day of 2017. I’m not even bothered about celebrating NYE. I don’t see the hype! Much prefer Christmas! I will leave my tree up until the 6th but I’ll be taking my cards down tomorrow and making them into tags for next year.
Lots of love from
