Living the Dream?
I have spent literally hundreds of pounds over the last few decades on County Living Magazine, Martha Stewart and a whole plethora of craft and needlework magazines. I feel as though I have wasted so much time and energy on them yet at the time they were a quick and relatively cheap fix to fulfil a need.
I think I am an addict of sorts but thankfully my addiction is only magazine related. I bought my last magazine of 2012 yesterday, the Christmas issue of 'The Simple Things'. I am not going to buy any magazines in 2013. In retrospect they have left me feeling empty and dissatisfied with 'my lot' in life.
After the magazine cull I am feeling slightly bereft as though I am parting with my dreams. Now that my paper perfect life has been designated to the bin, maybe I can get on with my real life?
