Err, DIY has never been my strong point. But in my defence, I’ve never really tried. Thanks to living with my dad for my whole life until now he has always been on hand to build my flat-pack furniture and hang up the shelves I kept on buying.
I did actually hang up one picture by myself in my bedroom at my parents house AND it is squint. Well done me. And I’m too lazy to go back and fix it so my beautiful Desenio leaf print hangs at an angle on the wall. Nailed it.
I don’t think there is a single person in this whole entire world who would turn down a night in hotel. Unless said hotel was grim and grotty and you might catch tetanus from it. I find a hotel stay an incredibly exciting event and I’m pleased to announce that that 2018 marks the year of my most overnight accommodation visits ever! Wild.
My mum and I booked tickets to see the amazing Sarah Millican, with her witty and straight-talking attitude, almost a year ago and I feel like I’ve been waiting on it for ages. We never get to do things that are exciting just two of us (no mum, trips to Sainsbury’s for breakfast and a food shop on a Sunday DO NOT COUNT) and I couldn’t wait to show my mum around Glasgow now I’ve been here almost three years.
I am so happy that I brought this happy little blog series back. It is something I look forward to writing about as it really makes me smile when I think about all the fabulous things from the last week. I really wanted to remove the pressure from it and just use it as a personal post and more of a diary/journal kind of thing for me. So naturally I didn’t write one up last Sunday as I was hungover but I’m back this week with the little things!
This past week has been so incredibly productive I can’t even begin to explain it. I have been doing so much blog admin behind the scenes and I can really start to see where I want my blog to go and the projects I want to work on. This is super reassuring for me and with everything else going on I’m just so happy that I have this platform to share and chat to.
God I’ve been struggling recently. So in times like this I always turn to my number one for inspiration: books. I’ve always been a lover of the written word and finding solace and comfort in the pages of my favourite inspirational books and experiences has always been my way of coping.
Writers and their perspectives continue to be a source of inspiration for me so here are five books I’ve been turning to recently to rejuvenate my creative juices. Whilst things in real life continue to throw obstacles in my way, flicking through the pages of these five always leave me feeling inspired, motivated and with a smile on my face.
BRB I’m just figuring out how the hell I can move to Stockholm and live in Sweden forever. I’m swayed pretty easily by any city as I love how there is so much going on but I did not expect to fall for Stockholm as hard as I did.
I had an amazing time here and I’m literally counting down the days until I can get back. It is such a buzzy city and I love the Swedish lifestyle. Everyone seems so chilled and relaxed and just a genuine enjoyment for life. We were also incredibly lucky with the weather in Sweden as they have experienced the hottest May ever this year.
