I went back to work on Monday hence the absence of posting from moi. One of the problems with having a job is that they expect you to turn up and actually do things so you can get paid. And work stuff aside it's been a challenging week and I've spent a fair amount of time ruminating on life, current events and planning and implementing some significant changes in my personal/home life.
And now it's Friday and that means it's time for me to pony up about my favourite thing for this week. Due to the aforementioned crappy week , I felt like the teacher announced "Pop Quiz " and I was totally unprepared. Initial panic set in when I wasn't sure I could even dredge up a Favourite for this week. (I really need to have a back up post for weeks like this....)
Thank Goodness for that flash of inspiration on Thursday at lunchtime. Do you ever have brilliant inspirational ideas and act on them immediately? I had one of those yesterday and ten hours later it was a done deal. That was my favourite thing this week. Quick change that worked out exactly the way I planned it in my head and instantly made me feel better. I think I may have caught Spring Fever (albeit two months late ) because all of a sudden I'm interested in feathering my little nest again.
So yesterday after work I was a woman on a mission to make this room look as different as possible because it was looking kinda daggy and tired which is exactly how I've been feeling this week too.
First stop -Every.Single.Store. at the Plaza in search of the perfect quilt cover , which I finally found at Myer. On sale, which meant it was still expensive but I didn't have to re-mortgage the house.
Add in some new cushions, new pillows, new pillowcases and lamp shades. I actually slept in this bed last night instead of my usual trick of crashing out on the lounge. ( I just realised how grotty my curtains look so maybe I'll replace them too!)
Stay tuned for more transformations because I'm on a roll people. There's no stopping me now. The lounge will be getting makeover this weekend too. I need more colour in my life.
If you'd like to share something that's coloured up your life this week and given you a flash of happy feel free to link up and tell us all about it.
