Lady In (A) Red (Bed)

It's already pretty cold here in Edinburgh, and we decided that we would buy a lovely warm throw for each of us this week. Our room is relatively warm, but there is a big window next to the bed which lets in all sorts of drafts so it seemed like a wise investment. We bought our throws in John Lewis quite cheaply, and managed to find two matching red pillow cases in British Home Stores which were only £3 for two as they were the display cases. So now we are all snug and warm as we sit in bed.

I came across this sweet little frog that my mum gave me when clearing out one of my drawers the other day, and decided to pin him up on the door frame.

We have also been given some new plants, including an aloe vera plant and this umbrella tree which I think is really delicate and pretty. One of our upstairs neighbours was keeping them in the hallway, but when the fire department came to check the building to make sure all the exits were clear (Coming home and seeing a fire truck parked outside your house as you walk down the road is a little unsettling!) they told her she had to move them so she gave them to us. They are in the shared sitting room at the moment, but when we have our own place I think they will make a lovely addition.
