Hello, and happy Monday! I hope you had a nice weekend. I can't believe it was John and my three week wedding anniversary – yes, I am enjoying counting the weeks at the moment! – and think we will have to do something to celebrate the four week mark for sure. Something a little more exciting than emptying out the clutter from our kitchen drawers, which we did yesterday. Completely boring but very necessary, and surprisingly cathartic – and more steps in the direction of getting our home organised!
Speaking of home, I am incredibly nesty at the moment. I am dreaming of ways to make things that much nicer here for us. So, of course looking at pinterest is an excellent use of time! Here are some of my current inspirations from my pinterest. The top left one sums up a few things for me, really: I think I want to use wallpaper on at least one of the walls, and I am keen to do the rest of our floorboards white, like we did in the two bedrooms. Or maybe sand them back and keep their natural pine colour? I also am craving some pale, soft spaces at the moment... so perhaps white walls, and not wallpaper! And we definitely need to sort out our desk. I love the idea of that pin board and the Ikea plant pots to store pens in. Hmmm. Lots to think about.
And lots to do! It has cooled down at last here, so things can go back to normal, and I can get more done. I was handling the heat pretty well until Friday, when I went for a run in the morning. Even though it was early and the sun was only coming up and I'd run on the Monday and Wednesday and been hot but fine, it tuned out to be a Very Bad Idea. I only got a third of the way through before I had to go home, as I'd got heat exhaustion. I completely stopped sweating for hours, which might sound awesome but really wasn't – who knew I'd miss that so much?! – and laying down and clinging on to the edge of the bed for dear life because I was so dizzy was not fun! Lesson learned: no running when it's been over 40C for so long. Now it is much cooler and grey skied and I am looking forward to wearing dresses and makeup again, and being far much productive. How is your week looking?
