Today I’m sharing a few things I’ve really been enjoying so far this September.
There’s lots going on here and I’m trying to adapt to the changes and make the most of them- as they are good things. Smallest has started preschool (and loves it) the bathroom renovation has started, and we’ve made headway with the dining room/snug.
And within a week I’ve dealt with Vertigo (mine!), a viral induced wheeze and hospital stay (youngest) and chickenpox (oldest and probably youngest any time now).
So- I’ve been savouring the little quieter moments between all the crazy ones.
This gorgeous bouquet arrived just in time for my birthday a couple of weeks ago and had been going strong ever since. It’s by Beards & Daisies and arrives upright in a box already hand-tied. I felt super special to receive this on my doorstep, with some of my favorite blooms inside. Beards & Daisies also do Letterbox flowers too, but the hand tied ones are just gorgeous for a special occasion.
Our Dining room has been a dumping ground on and off since we moved in nearly three years ago. We’ve used Valspar paint on the wall and its a pinky grey which feels very grown up, almost a bit National Trust. More details soon.
I got some lovely treats for my birthday, my favorite is the Beetle Juice themed notebook. The cover is just like the book Lydia finds in the film.
Apart from when the kids have been off school poorly, I feel like a whole new world of time has opened up for me. Planning and prioritising what I do in that time is the next thing I need to get to grips with.
I’ve been looking for the joy in doing even the smallest things, like making my daughters bed…
I was thrilled to be in Manchester city centre recently on the right day for Stylist to be out! I’ve not read it in ages, since they stopped doing the online version.
What are the things that are making you smile this month?
