My Favourite Room

Do you have a favourite room in your house? I do. Actually I have many!  It could be my child free craftroom, or my kitchen that I adore, or my laundry just kidding.

My theatre room is a place that I love.  As my friends know, I watch alot of movies, I'm a film buff.  I love settling in for the night with a blockbuster, or a scary movie, watched with the lights off of course!

May The Force Fight The Dust

I bought myself a present the other day.  I had wanted one for so long and wondered how I ever did without it!

Do you own a feather duster?  You know, the one with the long retractable handle if your'e lucky to reach up to the high spots and the soft, fluffy part on the end?

Spring Has Sprung

Welcome to Spring!

With the change of season comes a new look for my blog!  You like?

It feels like forever since I've checked in, but so much has happened in the last month or so! I have a new job, and I'm loving it!  It's in retail, in a big shop that sells beautiful things - linen, home decor, pretty gifts and table ware.

Seems Like Yesterday

Exactly 1 year ago, my adventure to Blogher 2013 began. I fell in love with Chicago and New York, and the love affair continues today.

I've been officially unemployed for 20 days now.  Without job, lady of leisure and my personal favourite semi retirement are phrases being kicked around.

Despite a lack of money and feeling very weird, I'm doing okay. It was good to go away for school holidays but now we are back, and school has begun, I'm trying to get grounded and work out what to do next.

I must say that I don't, for one moment, regret resigning from my job.  It feels as if a dark cloud has been lifted, yes cliche I know but a fitting one. I now realise how ridiculously busy I was, how much stress I was carrying around and how I've been missing out on so many different things.

I'm definitely calmer, I can feel it in my soul. Those feelings of worry about fitting it all in, of doing things half heartedly and not having enough time have gone.

My choice has been a good one.

And I've been baking!  Yeah I can't believe it either!  Homemade treats for the lunchboxes, thank you very much!  I'm making an orange and chocolate chip cake tomorrow because we have an abundance of oranges and mandarins on our trees.

They are delicious!
