Come on in....!

 A brief tour of a few moments in my home....
Welcome to 'The Office'. We call this 'The Office' with a wry comedic smile because we are sooo funny and ironic in my family.
 Most of the Living Room is, in fact, completely taken over by my life, my business.
I feel immense GUILT that you might not even know a child lives here. I have pushed out all domesticity from our cosy abode
 And me.... sat at the LapTop trying to get my business back on track...
(should I cut my hair again? I hardly recognise myself)
Meanwhile, this pile of Cememt Mix and Ballast is all i have of my *real* office / studio.
Sat in bags on the drive, it feels like a long way off right now.
 And life waits.... stacked up against walls.... waiting for the business to move out of our home and into a place where i can shut the door on it when i need to.
I never thought i would miss looking at my pictures soooo much! Strange, the pictures of our life that we come to rely on seeing, day in / day out. maybe a shake up is what we all need now and again?
 Knick Knacks of life and living seem to be sat,  shelved,  waiting for 'the time' to begin again.
I have been most amazed at how much junk i can quickly amass... and how little i actually need in my life to get on.

 A wooden Memory Box, salvaged from my deceased Great Aunt some 10 years ago.
Yet another thrifted suitcase... ( i swear, they breed in my house)
Upcycled cupboard unit. Was a white GPlan and is now a vintage-y Sage colour with pretty glass-look handles. This was a quick job that made me so much happier.
I spy... oh yes, ANOTHER vintage suitcase, balanced upon boxes of unpacked stuff and stock for the shop....
i was really looking forward to moving in and starting my new life...
Moving OUT was fairly swift in all it's practicalities.
Moving IN seems to be taking forever.
This is for you my dear x a sneak peek.

oh extra comments....
1. you really look like your mum when you have fair hair (it's no bad thing she is a fish of great beauty indeed)
2. I spy a Mr PS special original :-)
3. Despite comment 1 am thinking a good wowwy red would be perfect for your hair just now - with autumn / winter coming; good times; the start of something new; and the beginnings of a spring, if not a sashay, in your step...

awwwwwwwww thankyou! I loved it! Even clicking to get a look at the photo of your sister and you, being fun!!

It does take time, because you need to live in a house, before you get to know it and it finds its rhythm and pattern. Think how long it took me to 'finish' my living room!

You can't force it....x

little school girl fish photo....my heart strings!
