Another day of rest

Friday, August 23, 2013

Taking it easy last weekend really did the trick, I've been feeling much more relaxed. I decided to combine my trip to B&Q on Sunday with a trip to Dunelm. I'd been putting off going to Dunelm for a while as I wanted to have finished decorating the spare room before I went, but to avoid anymore power cut related car park sobbing (see previous post) I combined the two, if the power wasn't back on at least it wouldn't feel like a wasted journey.

I changed my mind about the lampshade I'd picked out for my office and went for something in a warmer tone and (hopefully) less attractive to dust. I also picked up a lovely Ficus plant and pot but failed to find the floor lamp I was hoping to buy. In the end I was actually quite well behaved, I didn't buy too much. I did pick up some star shaped cookie cutters (who doesn't need some of those?) and a valance trim that's been on my shopping list for an age. I love picking up the bits and pieces that will all eventually add up to a well appointed, organised home.

B&Q was open (phew!) so I came home with more paint and some dark varnish for the floor. So, Sunday consisted of a little work and a lot of decorating. I was pleased with the amount I managed to do, although it did mean that my plan to cook from a recipe that night fell by the wayside. It was curry sauce from a jar instead, my human dustbin Mr Joy didn't seem to mind.

My week has been another busy one, not helped by the fact I spent a morning in our flat (that we rent to a friend of mine) waiting for British Gas to turn up, only for Mr Joy to inform me that when he said August, he really meant September! Oh well, at least I was forced to relax a bit more and got some knitting done... and I saw on Twitter that Johari had a sale on and I bagged this Tabaka necklace that I fell in love with back in February (excellent waiting skills, no?).

How has your week been? What plans do you have for the weekend?
