I feel guilty…

… because only my Big man is working and because it is still a hard task to find a job for me nowadays … and even if I manage to save money by crafting (for ex. I was lucky because I had spent only 10 for my tee yarn, 10 balls in total…. Katia had it on sale…) and I’m very careful about spending it (like buying boots which I will wear for the next three or four years – because I always wear the same shoes and this is the period of my keeping them intact – for 87 instead of 125 …. ), I can’t avoid to feel guilty….  I feel guilty because I saw a larger sum than usual melted in my hands and today I bought a book for my own pleasure only …. for 16 …..


Money well spent indeed… I know that many of you will agree with me, but I know that I will feel guilty for the next five or six days….

Oh, I wish life were a bit easier sometimes…..

    1. Thank you! I feel a bit stupid about writing this post but I must admit that I need somebody telling me exactly the words you told me. Ah,and yeah, I haven’t taken into consideration that spending money sometimes could mean saving it… Thank you again ❤ ❤ ❤


      1. Oh, I do the same sometimes and sometimes I ask for permission to buy…. a bit pathetic but it works… well, I have to admit that I craft a lot for my man for two reasons in particular, i. e. I love to take care of him and I can feel free to buy a more expensive yarn and enjoy it 🙂

  1. It’s not easy feeling so reliant on another…even if they are the love of your life
    Your crafting serves a purpose, keeping you busy, learning new skills and saving you money in the long run, sometimes it feels like nothing will ever change, but everyday you are a day closer to things getting better, enjoy your purchase after all it is an investment on your crafting journey ❤ ❤ ❤

    1. Thank you,Roma! I really need those words of support! ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ There is Internet for learning but sometimes a manual can be a better ally… I had a look inside and can tell you that there are some really good patterns which I see on my needles already, so suitable to be given away next Xmas 🙂


  2. I’ve been there too… and very recently. Even though I saved up the money to get my hair cut and dyed and I’m really pleased with how it looks, I’m feeling guilty for having spent so much. I hope you will not feel guilty for long and instead knit up something beautiful… you always do. 🙂

    1. Jennifer, dear friend, you got the point! The only thing I have at the hairdresser is the cut. I usually have my hair dye by myself…. And I had become quite good at… But I hate to epilate myself so I spend money at the beautician every two months … 💚💚💛💜💙💚💛💜


    1. Hello, Klaudia,I’m so glad to have you stopping by my blog!I have just visited yours and… well, you have a new follower, your blog is so pretty, nice, joyful, beautiful, sweet…. I feel so very honoured for you nominating me for the Liebster Award, I’m speechless ….


  3. Yes it’s hard when circumstances are like this. (I’ve known this feeling well in the past.) But you have bought something that will bring a lot of joy for an indefinite amount of time. It’s not as though you threw money away on something silly that would only last five minutes. May you spend many happy hours with this gorgeous book.

    1. Thank you, Phil,you’re so kind! When I saw the book in the store, I brightened up…. because after several checks in several book stores, the first book with a sense was the above one…. so how, for God’s sake, could I eventually leave it in the store….? I have analyzed it from the very first page to the end for almost one hour (…. irritating the seller quite a lot…) before deciding to buy it… well, it was a good purchase …. the voice of guilt is still there but I try to fight it strongly….
