Hello my lovely Pea Podders!
This last week or so I've been feeling a little down in the dumps, nothing serious, just a little hacked off with life in general. So I've been taking stock and having a rethink of things, and the result...I'm getting rid of my TV!
The straw that broke the camels back was when I came home from work at 10:00pm and switched on the national news, all the reports were endless depressing stories of people being blown up, knifings of young people and how we're all skint and there's no way out...aaarrrrgghhh! Is there no good news anywhere in the world to report? It seems to me that all the trouble comes from the male of our species. If only they could all get together and form a massive knitting group or other creative activity I'm pretty sure this world would be a better place, perhaps I should suggest it to Mr Cameron.
Anyway back to the TV thing, so I came home switched on the news and went on a instant downer, I then switched to another channel where a program was showing 24 hours in A&E at a London hospital...here we go again! People being rushed through the door with stab wounds and bullets in their faces...what the bloody hell's going on? The very next day I called the TV licence people to cancel mine and now the TV is in it's box ready to go on eBay along with my DVD player that's never seen any action. I would rather listen to the radio and not be bombarded with this crap day in and day out and be told I have to pay for it too!
Crikey this is turning into a bit of a rant isn't it?
So to try and counter balance all the doom and gloom I'm going to do a Pea Pod give away and spread some love. The prize is one of my newly made lady lavender bags in yellow. She smells delightful and being filled with lavender she will calm you down should you also be wound up and agitated (perhaps I ought to go and have a sniff!)
So to win this little lovely all you have to do is firstly be a follower of The Pea Pod and leave a comment telling me your favorite way to unwind and relax, I also need to be able to contact you through your comment should it be your name that comes out. I'll get one of my work colleagues to pull a name out of the hat next Friday.
So as one give away is preparing to leave The Pea Pod HQ another one has come in :) I'm the extremely lucky recipient of this beautifully made lip balm case which hooks onto your keys. I'm going to use it to store an emergency lippy.
I won it from the award winning Gina at Rosie Hearts blog. Gina has a Not on the High Street shop and recently won one of their makers awards, which I have to say I'm not surprised about, the stitching on this case is so neat and tidy it's lovely. Thanks Gina and I'll send everyone that comments about it to your shop xx
