Lovely Monday (no work today)

I'm so grateful for days like this when I don't go to school but my little treasure does and my fabulous husband goes to work. Then I have the morning all to myself.
I started the day with coffee and cake and my little to-do-list. There were errands to be done so I got down and made a plan.
First and most important and fun thing on the list: I prepared a parcel for my pen-friend's birthday- which, by the way, is on the same day as mine; how strange is that! Good thing I didn't seal the envelope as I added a couple more things from the shops before posting it.
Now, if you want me to spend a fortune, take me to a stationary/book shop. 40 euros on the treats you see in no time! But boy it felt so good! I'm into drawing lately; we'll see where that takes me.

On the way home I thought of spoiling myself some more. My purse would've screamed if it could but luckily for it the cut flowers were not that fresh so I got this little pot - much cheaper than a bouquet. Now I have two little plants, yay! (remember my
'patience'?)
From my corner of the world to yours
Have a lovely week!

Hi Yiota,
Thanks for stopping by my blog and saying hello. Your Monday looks just perfect and starting the day with coffee and cake seems like a sensible way to ease into the week! Clever you for gettting a bargain with the pot plant also!

Oh, this is a very lovely way to start a week! And I too especially enjoy a day that starts with cake and includes a trip to a stationery shop :) I hope the rest of your week is as good as this day...

What a perfect way to begin your week ~ a day off, coffee and cake. How nice. Your mosaics are all so pretty. Your pen friend is going to be very happy to receive your package.

I share your love for stationery! It goes back to being a child for me, and those beautiful new books and pencils etc at the start of the year!
