Today's To-Do List!



Take an absurdly long bubble bath.

Attempt to read something. After finishing A Little Life I've been completely unable to read anything because I keep thinking about it so much. Hopefully some Harry Potter will bring me back into the reading world this afternoon!

Put up our new lampshade. Turns out lampshade reducers are a thing and I needed one to allow me to hang the shade I ended up buying. You learn something new everyday, eh?!

Reply to the wonderful comments I receive on my posts so consistently. As I was finishing off the last assignment of my degree I got really behind. Really, really behind. Months behind. I'm not sure I'll ever catch up, so I hope it's okay if I start here and work backwards knowing that I might not reach the beginning any time soon?

Silly dance when dusting and hoovering the house. Who says cleaning can't also be fun?

Look into graphics tablets. Wacom seem to be consistently highly reviewed. Have you ever tried one, if so what do you think?

Try to fit in some work somewhere. I've moved my desk in front of the window and I can see a patch of countryside if I look between the houses. It's both distracting and motivating. Distracting because it's so beautiful, and motivating because if I work harder maybe one day there won't have to be any other houses in the way of my view!

Happy Sunday! 
Do you have any plans?

  6. Sounds like you've got a lovely productive day planned! Good luck with achieving your goals and especially with the lampshade - what on earth is a reducer!? Haha!

    1. So apparently European light fittings are a bit bigger than UK ones so without a shade reducer it just falls off! I had no idea!

  14. I've been thinking about rereading Harry Potter recently after getting in a slump! It's been years since I've picked them up so I think I'd quite like to get back into their world sometime soon ;) x

  15. Hope you were able to do most of what was on your checklist! The lampshade reducers are news to me! I have never heard of such a thing actually. And I am going to check out "A Little Life," as now I am quite intrigued! Definitely get a graphics tablet as well if you think you are going to use it. I am a ux/ui designer and photographer so it is a major part of my workflow. It takes a bit of getting used to, but when you do, you will wonder how you lived without it!

  16. Funnily enough, I've only ever used a graphics tablet once in my life and I can't remember the brand! All I remember is finding using the little pen thing strange to start with, it takes a little getting used to! xxx

  17. You live in Derbyshire right? I grew up in the Chesterfield area and we were always a stones throw away from the most beautiful places. I imagine the view out your window is lovely. :)
