I've Been a Good Girl-Haven't I?...

The object of my desire

I've been a good girl lately. Finishing courses, applying for jobs, steering the family ship almost single-handedly, going to the gym, watching my diet, avoiding alcohol (4 months now)....

So

I deserve to buy myself something

Don't I?

Well I did. A-n-d it was something I totally didn't need but oh, so did want

So. I did

The gorgeous book above

Why then, do I feel guilty?

I haven't even opened it yet and it has been in my possession for nearly 24 hours

Okay, okay.. I haven't r-e-a-l-l-y had time and I do want to sit down, with a cuppa and drool over the pages, take my time, and not be interrupted

Why do I have to justify my purchase? Even to me

I do love Florence.So. Enough. Enough with the self-inflicted guilt trip

I will enjoy

Yes I will....

After I do the folding and ironing....




 Ciao for now...

  3. Totally forget about your guilt for buying a book. (I'm like that too with most things I buy - I felt guilty buying a mag while on holidays). Enjoy it. At least it is a keeper. xx

  4. Enjoy your book! I'm afraid that I don't feel guilty when I buy something for myself, and I certainly don't feel that I have to justify it!! I suppose it might have been different when my two daughters were young though! Now is MY time!!
