times are tough

There have been a few tears here at anna and the ring today.

I think I have upset my mother.

She is despondent that I am not working and that I have no future. All sadly true.

(I have also been trying to come up with a satisfactory response the the comments of this post. And failing mainly because I think we actually mean the same thing. Would love to talk to you properly anon - my email is annaandtheringlondon {at}

Anyhoo, back to money. Ouch, I do not enjoy being a kept woman. From having my own cash to spend on what I enjoy. (Yes I realise that was mostly shoes but I also loved being able to spring little presents upon people). 

So in a way of looking after the pennies (and I imagine it will be pennies) and regain a teensy bit of independence I thought I would see what adsense was all about. We shall see. I still don't really understand.

Also there will be a few sponsored post in the very near future (perhaps today!). By sponsored I either mean I have been paid to write about a certain brand or item or I have been gifted said item to write about. Either way I can promise you my views will still be my own. Anna is the name you can trust! I mean what's the point of talking about this stuff if I don't tell the truth?!

Is that ok? What are your thoughts about blog advertising?

Although things are not all bad. Bean and I are cat sitting this delicious fellow. (More to come on him later too - assuming his Mummy says it's ok!)

He is silly. and lovely.

I love that he looks scary here. He is the least scary cat in the world. I think I just caught him mid mew (he doesn't miaow). You look fierce LiBot.

A more typical pose.

The most delicious green eyes.


  1. Having to worry about money stinks. you are a smart cookie and I know you'll find your part...the path may just be a bit blocked by other debris along the way. I remember feeling that way in London when i was unsure about the future (and now I have this different and crazy role).
    I'm totally fine with blog advertising as long as the author's opinions aren't compromised. Use those pennies and pounds towards lovely things!

  2. I wish people would gift me things to write about! Seriously though, I think it will be a cool new venture and I look forward to your views on any and all things. :-) x

  3. It has been a little over a month since I started working again and I kind of...maybe...sometimes miss being a kept woman/queen/slave driver. I do love having my own money (which was spent very very quickly) to spend on whatever I want and it's nice to have a routine again. Plus, I can go and see you soon!


So, I really love all the sweet and/or informative comments that you lovelies leave. Yet if you feel the need to be unnecessarily rude or offensive I will delete your comment and not feel bad about it. So just be constructive alright! Hugs to all you wondrous others.
